Not sure if it was a re-run, but "Discover Wisconsin" featured geocaching in Washington County today. GC1DA79 was the cache featured, with a gal named "Tammy Mauland" being interviewed. I thought I recognized the cache - it was part of the $1000 Ca$h Ba$h!Very Happy

They called Washington County the "Midwest Geocaching Capitol of the World". Any particular reason? Cache density maybe?...

Yep, cache density is one reason. 500 within a 7-mile radius or something close. The West Bend Chamber of Commerce director is a wise fellow who realizes the tourism potential of geocaching. He actually got the "Geocaching Capital of the Midwest" phrase to be an official trademark for our city. Very Happy

I'm excited that the word is getting out there for our Cache Ba$h! Very Happy

Cool! They also featured the Eisenbahn State Trail. I knew I recognized that trail too! I was yelling at the TV "There's a geocache right behind you!" Laughing I believe it was near cache GC1C7PQ.

I'll see if I can find a way to upload the clip.

Back in October, the Discover Wisconsin camera crew followed, Dane, Tait and I (Tami) for one hour while hunting 3 caches from the West Bend $1000 Cache Ba$h. It was funny when we all came out of the woods pulling prickers off of each other including the camera man. We haven't seen the 30 minute "final" product yet but I know it was airing this weekend. Thanks for mentioning it! Tami aka earth angel of the ecorangers (Professor was in Kansas during the filming).
