Fox 6 news Milwaukee is supposed to be running a geocaching story tonight.

Just played it as a matter of fact. A nice segment featuring the Ecorangers and Auntienae, plus someone at the end who I couldn't identify, but could certainly identify with.

I agree, nice segment. Don't know about that last bit with the guy in the still photo, however.

I do not know ..

I did give them the lead on REI and GPS units.

I will contact Brad Hicks to see if he will tell me tomorrow.

I think he starred in that movie "50 First Dates". The plot is something like this: guy takes girl geocaching on first date, guy doesn't get a second date (I wonder why?), repeat 49 more times with a different girl. Of course, once in great while it works but that is not shown.

In any case, it added nothing to the news story and the guy looked like a stalker.

I believe the movie you are thinking of is "20 Dates". "50 First Dates" is that Adam Sandler/Drew Barrymore amnesia movie. I don't have a copy of the still, but the picture I have of the 20 Dates guy doesn't look all that much like the one in the picture. Didn't see the movie, however.

Nice story, and unusually long for TV news.

The guy in the still photo is a real geocacher that was featured in a syndicated news story maybe a year or more ago on Fox 6, but it wasn't shot in Milwaukee. I think it was New York, but I don't remember for sure.
