Seems to be a hint of real caches in there somewhere. If not already published could it be we will see them pop up later?

I was the cacher involved with the project. It was loosely based on geocaching, but only as a commercial enterprise. The caches were never intended for publication on any geocaching website.

The actual project covered the Hawkesbury in total. There are five caches set up. The cache they did was a composite of some of them with an extra excitement bit thrown in to boost the interest levels. I was asked to be available for the filming, but due to work was unable to attend. To date I still haven't seen the segment on Sydney Weekender, as I am interstate.

Given the chance, I will not be involved, ever again with a such a project. It took too much time for too little gain for me, I undersold my time, equipment and skills.

The media, you gotta love them. A person at work was involved with a segment on one of the programs about local unsung hero's.

Besides all the many days of preparing, it took over 8 hours shooting time for one 7 min segment on the program
