Behind The Scenes: Geocaching World (RVNN.tv) Ep. #913 - Geocaching Thing-A-Mabobs

What-cha-macallits,  whos-a-whatzis and thing-a-mabobs was the theme for last night's recording of Geocaching World (RVNN.tv). When I first Skyped in to the studio it sounded more like gremlin's day. Apparently Producer/Co-Host Courtney Wallin was having some continuous technical issues all day and they were not slowing down right up to show time. Now I have never seen Courtney mad before and quite frankly all she has to do is give me "The Look" which is enough to send shivers down the spine of any action hero. So when she was stating that she was going to lose it, I wasn't sure I wanted to be around when that happened. Fortunately for everyone things mostly settled down in time to do the show.

One of the things that we have been playing with is the use of Google+ hangouts during the recording of the show. We tried it again last night and had some really nice results. There is going to be a bunch more tweaking that needs to be done to get the full functionality but I can see it as a nice addition in the not too distant future. One of the cool things that I can do is run a second camera off of my second computer when we do this. I just found it a bit cumbersome because I also use that monitor for watching the chat-room while we do the show. So it also is going to mean getting a second monitor for that system like I have for my primary system. That will be four monitors going now but it is necessary between the Skype session, show notes, hang out, chat-room and anything else I need. Oh and the addition of a new Microsoft Lifecam Cinema webcam has greatly improved the Skype session over my laptop camera. HD is a good thing.

Wow, just realized how much I was rambling about all the technical stuff going on and haven't talked about the show itself yet. Ah well isn't that what the "Behind the Scenes" goodness is all about? Okay, on with the show.

We talked about many of the favorite thing-a-mabobs that geocachers use when out geocaching. Theses items are not your run of the mill things like GPSr units, topo maps or ammo cans. More like extension grabbers, multi-tools and led light baseball caps. This is all geocachers information gold because you are going to run into a situation where you have to get a geocache and you don't have the right gizmo to do it. This show will help you fill up your geocaching pack with the right tools for the job. If you want to get all the details you will have to watch the entire show when it goes into distribution. Don't fret it will only be a week or so.

PRIZES! Glad you asked. The Geocaching World Cache Stash was really hopping tonight with contributions of a pack of Waypoint Markers from GxProxy.com and a beautiful wrist bracelet from GeoSurvivalGear.com.

The BIGGIE contest prize of course was the CoinsAndPins.com Compass Rose Sample Geocoin. It is a one of a kind geocoin which are extremely coveted. In fact if you read this before EOD Wednesday, November 30th, 2011 you might want to read about it here and send in your entry.
http://headhardhat-geocache.blogspot.com/2011/11/register-to-win-one-of-kind-sample.html

Special thanks to Courtney Wallin and Managing Director Andy McCaskey for doing a really fun show. Plus another huge thank you to everyone who was watching us record and also interacted in our chat-room. Mucho Thank You, the show would not be the same without you!

All of our released Geocaching World episodes are available in iTunes and on the RVNN.tv website but if you did not make it to the live recording you can see it when it is released soonly.

Geocaching World is recorded LIVE each and every week on Thursday at 6:30pm EST. We meet up in the chat room here: www.ustream.tv/channel/rvnn-live.

If you are a company who would like to participate with our Geocaching World Cache Stash Sponsorship Program and donate prizes for our show please email geocache@rvnn.tv for more details.

See you next week.

RVNN.tv Producer Courtney Gets Her First Geocache!

Courtney's First Geocache
When RVNN.tv and Geocaching World producer Courtney Wallin told me that she was going to go geocaching for the first time I was really excited for her. She went geocaching all right and in true geocaching tradition the weather was not optimal. Check this out.

She went camping in Michigan within a National State Forest. It was raining, the temps in the 40s and AT NIGHT!  Did I mention this was her first geocache?

Holy cow Courtney I am so proud of you and welcome to the obsession.

Do me a favor and go to the RVNN.tv Facebook page and welcome her the geocaching community:

Behind The Scenes: Geocaching World (RVNN.tv) - Meet and Greet GPSr FAQs

On my way home from my computer based employment I had RVNN LIVE streaming through my Android phone. It was kind of humorous to me when Creative Director Dave Dufour was talking with Managing Director Andy McCaskey and letting the viewing audience know they were on their own today. Apparently Producer Courtney Wallin was out for the day and Dave would have to do all the switching. Now on a Tuesday that was not directly impacting to me because Geocaching World is normally recorded on Thrusdays. The issue was due to some scheduling issues RVNN.tv asked me to tape tonight instead of Thursday. Well goody.

It really isn't THAT bad when Courtney isn't at the helm. Though it is noticeably different and let's just say we really like it when Courtney is in but hey, it couldn't get worse - could it?

So setup time came around and my Skype session kicks off as usual. I expected to see Andy McCaskey smiling back at me when the video started but instead there was my friend Dave Dufour. Turns out that Andy had to leave as well so the entire production crew consisted of ... Dave Dufour. Hmmmm, this should be interesting. Poor Dave, not only did he have to do all the production switching but also be in front of the camera as well while we did the show and to top it off he had to stay behind the production board instead of being in the main studio like we normally do. Oh yeah, loads of fun.

Because the show was on a different night and we had to make the schedule change at the last minute neither of us really thought there would be that many people if at all in the chat room. WRONG it was filled up as usual and I was really pleased to see that. It's amazing how Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and word of mouth can get the message out. It was a really lively chat room and both Dave and I were struggling to keep up with the discussions going on and do the actual show. In fact in one part of the show I believe Dave made a funny comment on how he would rather just keep up with the chat room. What can I say we have a bunch of really great people there each and every week.

As far as the actual show goes I think it went fine. Since Dave had to switch between me on Skype and him behind the control board it looked more like a RVNN LIVE show than Geocaching World but hey you have to make due with what is presented to you. In short we did just fine.

The show generally turned out to be about FAQs for how to consider purchasing a GPSr unit. We were extremely thorough in the discussion and covered all the major aspects that you should consider before forking out some serious coin. During the show we gave out two really cool prizes. One was a very nice wrist bracelet from GeoSurvivalGear.com and an excellent Grand Canyon Benchmark geocoin from CoinsAndPins.com. Not to mention that the BRAZOS Walking Stick giveaway has been extended to next week so you now have until October 26th, 2011 to get your entries in and we will have the drawing live on the show on October 27th, 2011.

So it turned out to be another great Meet and Greet episode of Geocaching World despite Dave losing his mind doing basically everything production wise. The chat room was awesome as usual and I had my usual crazy fun as well. A fun night all way round. Be sure to see the entire episode as it comes out in the next few days. Also be sure to check out the other 20+ episodes ready to be viewed at your leisure on the RVNN.tv website or any distributors like iTunes, the Tech Podcast and so many more.

Geocaching World is recorded LIVE each and every week on Thursday at 6:30pm EST. We meet up in the chat room here: www.ustream.tv/channel/rvnn-live.

If you are a company who would like to participate with our Geocaching World Cache Stash Sponsorship Program and donate prizes for our show please email geocache@rvnn.tv for more details.

See you next week. -HHH

Get Your Geocaching World Signs Ready To Win A Brazos Traveler Walking Stick

www.BrazosWalkingSticks.com
Okay I have read out in the Geocaching World that not everybody goes geocaching with a walking stick. To each, his or her own I say. Yet even if you don't normally use one or maybe you do, wouldn't it be cool to have a hand made one for your very own? Have it standing next to the fireplace or in that special corner in the den, it makes a great conversation piece. That or you can walk it down to a nub if you want to use it for it's actual purpose. Either way it is just too cool!

Well we are giving a Brazos "Traveler" Walking Stick away on Geocaching World (RVNN.tv). They were kind enough to donate one for our Cache Stash and we are in turn happy to give it away as a prize to a lucky viewer of the show.

So how do you win it? Great question.

You make yourself a picture stating at the very least the words "Geocaching World" on it. You can print it off, make it yourself, be as creative as you would like. Note creativity does not get you extra points but it will more than likely get your photo on the show!
Viewer Dane Morgan's Entry


I have my picture of Geocaching World now what?  Take that grand creation you made and have a photograph of you and your picture of Geocaching World taken while geocaching.




Email your photo to geocache@rvnn.tv.

  • Include all your contact information
  • A brief description of where abouts you were when having the photo taken 
  • What you like about our Geocaching World show and/or what else you would like to see on the show.

This will get your entry into the drawing. Remember one entry per person please.  Please put "Brazos Contest" in the subject line of the email. We will be accepting entries until End Of Day, Wednesday, October 19th, 2011. Again one entry per person please.

More details on this week's show. So stay tuned.

Behind The Scenes: Geocaching World (RVNN.tv): Smorgasbord of Topics #905Meet & Greet


It is official, we love doing Meet and Greet style formats for Geocaching World (RVNN.tv) shows. They are so much fun and has a completely relaxed atmosphere to it. We get to goof around a bunch more like tonight when Creative Director, Dave Dufour was all dressed up in a tie, I punked him by also wearing a tie over my tie-dye tshirt.  We also have a more direct communication with the viewers in the the chat-room.

Tonight's episode was kind of a Smorgasbord of Topics which happens when we have a bunch of different subjects to talk about but none of them by themselves would fill a whole section or show. We talked about interesting geocaching goodness like using Triangulation to find a geocache, showed a website that makes converting map coordinates easy and showed off a Decoder Geocoin. There is a whole bunch more but you really should see the show to appreciate all of it.

For the Geocaching World Cache Stash Sponsorship we introduced CoinsAndPins.com who has donated all kinds of great prizes for the show. We gave away a trackable tag and a really cool geocoin. Thanks so much to CoinsAndPins.com for being a part of the Cache Stash!

We also announced the next big Give-A-Way Contest. The fine folks at Brazos Walking Sticks has donate a hand made trackable walking stick. We will be doing a complete review on the prize which will be shown in my  blog and all the details for the contest will be reveled in next weeks show.

Phew, so much stuff and we only touched the surface. Again watch the whole show when it comes out on iTunes, The TechPodcast Network, Blubrry, Roku and a host of other distributors.  Thanks for the folks who did join us in the chat-room and on the TechPodcast Network for watching. You really do make the show more fun to do!

You can join us each and every week as we record Geocaching World on Thursdays at 6:30pm EST. We meet up in the chat room here: www.ustream.tv/channel/rvnn-live

If you are a company who would like to participate with our Geocaching World Cache Stash Sponsorship Program and donate prizes for our show please email geocache@rvnn.tv for more details.

See you next week.

Geocaching World (RVNN.tv) Meet and Greet Episodes Rock!

Over the past month or so we have had a slightly different format to our Geocaching World show. Normally we offer a 30 minute show which is broken up with three, eight minute, segments and the rest is filled with commercials, show bumpers and other necessary stuff. It is really a lot of fun to do but one of the things we noticed was how Creative Director Dave Dufour, Producer Courtney Wallin and myself Andy "HeadHardHat" Smith kept discussing a ton of Geocaching stuff in-between segments. Many times we answered questions from the chat room which is full every time we record the show and none of this was recorded. A terrible waste of content in my opinion. We needed a way of getting almost all of our discussions recorded and so the Geocaching World "Meet and Greet" was tried.

If you go to iTunes you will see the Meet and Greet style shows are a bit longer. Usually running a good 45 minutes in length or more. We do commercials but they are done live right as we record the show. As an added bonus a lot more of the adhoc discussions are kept within the show as well. This gives Geocaching World a much more relaxed "let's hang out and talk Geocaching" kind of feel to it.

Now we get a lot more interaction with the chat room, more photos from geocachers and LOTS more chances for people to win cool prizes from our Cache Stash. The Geocaching World Cache Stash is a sponsorship program where Geocaching based companies can donate prizes that are given away during the show in exchange for a mention of the company and their product. It is becoming very popular with more participants getting into the program every month. A nice win-win in all of our books.

So if you are interested in Geocaching and want to learn more, want to get in on the fun of hanging out with a whole bunch of very interactive and helpful geocachers in the chat room or just want to participate in the making of a live TV show. Geocaching World is the place to be.

We are looking forward to seeing you there!

- HeadHardHat

Geocaching World is recorded each Thursday at 6:30pm EST and you can come to our LIVE Chatroom and participate in the show by going here: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/rvnn-live

If you are interested in participating with our Geocaching World Cache Stash you can contact us by emailing  Geocache@RVNN.tv for more details.

Behind The Scenes: Geocaching World (RVNN.tv) Episode #32 - FAQ's


What a fun show tonight. This episode of Geocaching World (RVNN.tv) was in that fun and easy style of a Meet and Greet. Here we get away with a lot more. We communicate with the chat room a whole lot more and they interact right back with us. This makes the show so much more entertaining because the chat room sort of directs how the show goes. Tonight we did an FAQ show, in other words, a geocaching Frequently Asked Question show. It doesn't matter how much a person does geocaching there are always questions about some subject or another. Tonight we pulled out of a hat a bunch of different questions and then discussed them. This further brought in other questions from the chat room and on we went.

The weekly show prizes were both donated by our friends at GxProxy.com. the first was some great Trail Tags. These are night type tacks that are directional. They literally can point in the next direction you want the finder to go. Our winner of this had to encode a message into Rot13 and that was - Dane Morgan.

The second question was what does the acronym TPTB mean? The winner was Louis Caplan who won some really nice GxProxy.com donated Waypoint Tags.

It was so relaxed tonight even Dave Dufour and I got to make fun of Producer Courtney Wallin in regards to the Michigan / Notre Dame game played earlier in the week. I was able to get my "Go Blue" digs in because they won said game and Courtney gave one of her best "The Look" expressions I have had in a while.

Questions tonight touched adopting a geocache, how reliable are smart phone GPS units, what is a stash note and do a lot of geocachers like geocaching alone. There were tons more but these are some of them.

We went through two different "Lets Go Geocaching" videos where we witnessed a bunch of different geocaching hides in areas around the country.

There was a whole lot more talked about as well but you really should see the show itself. It is well worth the watch.

Enjoy,

-HHH

Geocaching World is recorded each and every week LIVE on Thursday's at 6:30pm EST. You can go here to join the chat room and watch the show. http://www.ustream.tv/channel/rvnn-live

Behind The Scenes: Geocaching World (RVNN.tv) - #31 Geocoinfest US 2011 - Meet and Greet

Last night's show was just a powerhouse of great discussion, lively guests and a packed chat room that took a life of it's own. Amazing!

This episode of Geocaching World (RVNN.tv) started off early. The chat room started filling up about 20 to 30 minutes before setup time. I always like that because it gives me more time to chat with our viewers. Our first of two guests on the show was our Vonage: Time To Call iPad 2 Giveaway winner: Giancarlo Herrera. Giancarlo is an amazing young man who not only loves to geocache but who also has his own geocaching based podcast called the GeoCraze Podcast. We congratulate him on winning such an amazing prize!

Our second guest is one of the organizers to this year's Geocoinfest US 2011 Mega Event. Scott Seegars described to us all the details that are going to be happening this October. I am really excited about Geocoinfest because I will actually be attending it and also am a guest speaker. There will be lots more details when I get back and we will be featuring them in one of the upcoming Geocaching World episodes.

Did I mention how packed the chat room was? One of the main concepts behind the new Meet and Greet style shows is ability to be more relaxed and literally chat with everyone. We had discussions, questions and remarks all night from the chat room and to me personally THAT really dictates our show. The more interaction we have with our viewers the more fun it is for everybody. So now would be the best time to say thanks for everyone who did attend and we look forward to seeing you back and encourage even more to stop by and share the wealth of geocaching knowledge.

There was so much information we had to go through we almost forgot to give away our weekly prize for the show. ALMOST that is. This weeks winner received a cool 8 1/2" wristband from GeoSurvivalGear.com. We will be getting that and some of the backlogged prizes out in the mail this weekend.

Well that's all for now. Oh, before I forget I also wanted to welcome all the new viewers from The TechPodcast Network in which we simulcast not only the entire Geocaching World feed but we usually have 30 minutes or so to just chew the fat some more about geocaching with the chat room after the show. Again welcome to the show!

Geocaching World is recorded LIVE each and every week on Thursday's at 6:30pm EST. You can be a part of the show by going in our video chat room here: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/rvnn-live

If  you would like to be a guest on Geocaching World, participate in our Cache Stash Sponsorship program, have show suggestions, photos or ideas - boy that is a lot :)  Send it to geocache@rvnn.tv, again thanks!

See you next week!

Behind The Scenes: Geocaching World (RVNN.tv) Episode #30 Paperless Geocaching Meet and Greet

Tonight's episode of Geocaching World was once again a Meet and Greet format which meant it is a whole lot less formal overall. Creative Director Dave Dufour and myself like doing the show this way. Mainly because we can interact directly with the folks in the chat room. This is great because we can start on a particular subject and the chat room can direct in a way how the show goes. It is a lot of fun. 


Because this format is a lot less formal we can give away a lot more prizes which is always great with the chat room and our viewers. This week we gave a really nice cami bison tube from GxProxy.com which went to Pingvoyager who is a regular in the chat room. We also showed a bunch of photos that were sent in for the Vonage: Time To Call contest we have been running all week. It showed geocachers doing what they do best. The entries that were sent in goes into a drawing that one lucky winner will win a brand new iPad 2. The drawing is Saturday, September 3, 2011. 


The meat of discussion with today's show dealt with Paperless Geocaching. We went over the general history of paperless geocaching and how it and GPSrs has developed over the years. We talked about everything from PDAs, Netbooks, Tablets, Smart Phones and other applications. 


The second prize we gave out was really cool. For the Vonage contest there is a limit of one entry per person. The prize we did here was who ever sent in the correct answer from the chat room would win ten entries to possibly win the iPad2. Viewer AVToolman was the viewer with the correct answer.


There is a whole lot of great discussion and other valuable information in the show itself. Be sure to check it out when it becomes available in iTunes in the next day or so.


Enjoy. 


Here is all the details for the Vonage: Time To Call iPad 2 Giveaway

Behind The Scenes: Geocaching World (RVNN.tv) Ep. 29 - Create Your Own Geocache Meet and Greet

Wow, what a night! So many fantastic things going all at once for this episode of Geocaching World (RVNN.tv).

First off this was the very first time that we ran LIVE video as we recorded on both RVNN.tv and the TechPodcast Network at the same time. Next we are starting our Fall recording schedule so our new night is Thursdays at 6:30pm EST.

Finally we are a part of a Vonage IPad2 Giveaway. In tonight's episode one lucky winner in our chat room won 10 total chances to win the Vonage prize. Another slight change we presented this episode with a geocacher's Meet and Greet style to it. A bit more casual and a bunch more interaction with the chatroom. It was definitely different but a lot of fun.

I think the people in the chat room had a lot more fun as well. The discussions for today included making your own geocaches for example we talked about my Evil Ant Hill Geocache which we showed how we made it out of bondo. Then we went over a whole set of PVC geocaches and finished with my Evil Resin Geocaches. For prizes our winners were Collin who won a Cache-A-Maniacs Podcast Geocoin and Scott won the 10 chances to win the Vonage IPad2. If you want to put in your chance to win the IPad2. Go to RVNN.tv's website, my blog (GeoCache: I'm NOT Obsessed... Right?) or my GeoSnippits website for all the details or watch tonight's show should be out by the time you are reading this. Did I mention that the commercial we used during the show featured me as I describe the Vonage product Time To Call and the giveaway contest? Way cool!

 Also during this show we had some great photos sent in from the chatroom. I am not going to spoil and tell everything but one of them was how David Clark made a Cryptex geocache. You really need to see this! After that Dave Dufour, Courtney Wallin, Andy McCaskey and myself Andy HeadHardHat Smith did our daily episode of RVNN Live.

Made for a very full evening and a whole lot of fun. Judging from the chat room they had fun and I hope we made a whole lot of new friends on the TechPodcast as well.

See you next week!

Geocaching World is recorded LIVE each week on Thursday's at 6:30pm EST. Be a part of the show by joining our chat room on RVNN.tv.

Behind The Scenes: Geocaching World (RVNN.tv) Episodes #27 Eric From Groundspeak #28 Placing Your First Geocache Part 2



I find myself smiling once again when typing down the behind the scenes RVNN.tv goodness and thinking back about all the things that goes on when we record Geocaching World. We did two shows and had one heck of a fun session. The only bummer for the whole night was Producer Courtney Wallin was not there due to her not feeling well. We missed her A LOT and in fact many GW viewers sent Courtney emails of get well wishes. Our viewers are the best. Some how though we did manage to get through the evening. Did I mention we missed Courtney? Managing Director Andy McCaskey had his hands full while we recorded the shows as he filled in for Courtney and did all the things a Managing Director does. Mostly it's to wrangle Dave and I when we get off on one of our tracks. Like say for example as we break out in quotes from The Three Stooges. What can I say we do have fun.

Some very cool things of note that happened during the show. We had viewers in the chat room last night from New Zealand , Prague of the Czeck Republic and Canada! Not to mention all across the USofA. That is so great and we really appreciate you all being there.

Anywho, Our first show we had as our guest Eric Shudiske from Groundspeak via Skype. We talked about everything from the new geocache type known as Challenges and what they are. Then the discussion turned to Eric's trip with the Groundspeak film crew as they explored and filmed geocaching in Germany and the Czeck Republic. There was a whole lot more and we will save it for you to enjoy when you actually see the released show. Needless to say it was a great show and the chat-room agreed.

Our second show we still had a packed chat-room and Creative Director Dave Dufour and I talked more about what you should know about placing your first geocache. It was sort of a continuance from a show we did last week. We had so much material to cover and it was important to get it all so when a geocacher does place a hide, they are well prepared.  

Finally after both shows were complete we did Monday's edition of RVNN LIVE which is a daily collection of everything that happens at the RVNN.tv studios. So even after four hours worth of taping we still had a good crowd going in the Chat-Room. It is a lot of fun watching how the shows are made and all the behind the scenes stuff that goes on. I like watching it too!

Geocaching World Cache Stash Prizes
Here are the prizes that were given away during the recording of the two shows.
#27 - Geocoin from Cache-a-Maniacs Podcast
       - Bison Tube from GxProxy.com

#28 - RVNN.tv Patch from RVNN.tv
       - Lanyard from GeoSurvivalGear.com

If you would like to donate prizes to the Geocaching World Cache Stash and get your product and business mentioned on the show. Contact me Andy HeadHardHat Smith at geocache@rvnn.tv. We are interested in any items related in some way to geocaching. It is greatly appreciated and beneficial to you as well.

Special Note: The new fall schedule starts next week and we are moving the LIVE recordings to THURSDAYs at 6:30pm EST. Be sure to mark the new day on your calendars starting 8/25/2011.

See You There!

Behind The Scenes: Geocaching World (RVNN.tv) - Episode #26: Placing Your First Geocache

Wow, all I can say about last night's live recording of Geocaching World is wow. It was a night of experimentation, really cool prize give-a-ways and all around good times.

I personally started early when Creative Director Dave Dufour asked me if I wanted to be a part of the days episode of RVNN Live. Since I had already my equipment like lighting, sound and computer systems in place it was a no brainer. There Managing Director Andy McCaskey, Dave and myself talked about all things RV for about 45 minutes or so. We always have such a good time just talking the time flys by.

Next thing I knew Producer Courtney Wallin was getting things ready for our recording of Geocaching World. During this time I am busy getting the word out to all of my Google+, Twitter and Facebook fans that the show is about to begin recording. Then I get all my show notes in order via my Ipad2 and netbook which I monitor the chat room during the show. Finally on my main computer I get my Skype hookup in place and any other props or items I may want to show during the taping. It is an unusual balance of controlled chaos but we have been doing this for a while and I am used to it.

Tonight was a bit different for a couple of reasons. One, we all really wanted to see if we could work in a Google+ Hangout. This is a conference type of application where you can have up to ten people video chatting at the same time. Long story short. Going to take some more testing and tweaking. Skype and Google+ do not play together well, but we will keep at it.

The second reason the show was a bit different was we were giving away a couple of really nice prizes only to the people who were in the chat room during the taping. The prizes included a very cool key-chain donated from GeoSurvivalGear.com and the second was an actual Cache-A-Maniacs Geocoin. We will be posting more about our GW Cache Stash sponsorship program in an upcoming post. So more later.

The show itself went great. we had Pingvoyager from North Carolina on in the first segment talking about his and his friend Luckysgirls's night time geocaching adventure via kayak. We had a little problem with some delay issues but overall a great discussion.

Segments two and three Dave and I talked about many of the things you need to consider if placing a geocache. We had so much content that this is going to come up again in a future episode. The whole point to it was to get Dave enough information to place his first geocache correctly. More information about that in the show.

So with the record crowds in the chat-room, all the great discussions with the viewers and with each other the night was a complete success and a whole lot of fun. RVNN.tv gave out five stickers to the chat-room and so there were a whole lot of happy people. We hope you can attend our next recording and join in the fun.

Scheduled for our next recording will be Monday, August 15th. We plan on doing two shows starting at 6:30pm EST. Our planned special guest will be Eric Schudiske from Groundspeak.

Cya there!

Special Guest Photo: Geocaching World (RVNN.tv) 08032011

HeadHardHat (left), Phil May (middle), Dave Dufour (right)

I admit it. I so appropriated this really cool shot from the RVNN.tv Facebook page. It features Creative Director Dave Dufour, Gadgetplex Host Phil May and myself while taping an episode of Geocaching World. Phil was visiting the RVNN.tv studios and so we just had to have him on as our special guest. If you are wondering why I am on a monitor is because when we do Geocaching World the show hosts usually appear via Skype.

We had way too much fun!

Behind The Scenes: Geocaching World (RVNN.tv) Episode #25 - Munzee Talk


I was very excited to be back on camera once again. We had not recorded another episode of Geocaching World since Geowoodstock IX back in early July. It was even more of a surprise when I found out that Phil May host of Gadgetplex was visiting the RVNN.tv studios. So we had a very special guest with tonight's LIVE recording.

Phil May - Host of Gadgetplex
Because this was an attempt to get back on our normal recording schedule we taped only one episode and it was on a Wednesday instead of our summer schedule of Monday nights at 6:30pm EST. I was very pleased to see many of our regular viewers in the Ustream chat-room just like always. Geocachers are the best and thank you for being there.

Since Phil is our electronics show expert we of course started the show talking about some of the gps gadgetry he was familiar with. One of the items that I thought quite clever was a key-chain sized gps that allowed you to mark an important spot like where you parked your car so you could quickly get back to it. I see that very handy if you don't have a smart phone but would like that functionality.

Segments two and three we talked about an extremely popular adaptation of the geocaching theme. It's called Munzee and is an electronic, smart phone, search and discovery game. If you frequent my blog there are several really instructive posts I have placed for you to enjoy. In tonight's episode we go over many of the basics and I also take you on one of my earliest Munzee hides.

Be sure to watch when episode #25 of Geocaching World becomes available. Much more for you to learn about this fun activity. So stay tuned via the RVNN.tv website, Itunes and all of our distribution networks and affiliates.

Be a part of the Geocaching World chat room audience. We record our show during the summer schedule on Monday's at 6:30pm EST. You can go directly to the Ustream chat room by clicking this link: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/rvnn-live

We look forward to seeing you there. We have some really great surprises starting next week. You have to be in the chat room to participate.

See you then.

Geocaching World (RVNN.tv) Now Featured On YouTube - Geocache Types

Geocaching World is in it's first season and already it is one of the top shows in the RVNN.tv network. There are several reasons for this.  Starting with hosts Dave Dufour who just learned about Geocaching and Andy HeadHardHat Smith who has been very involved with the family activity for years. Then the extremely informative banter as Andy and Dave discuss all the aspects of Geocaching including many side subjects likes photography, hiking, technology and much more. Finally there are our amazing viewers who can watch the show as it is recorded LIVE or as it is distributed via ITunes, TechPodcast, Blubrry, Roku and many other viewing choices. Above all this entertaining show would not be possible without you.

So with all the many ways someone can see entire episodes via the web. Why are we putting out teasers of the show and featuring them on YouTube? When we say teaser we are not putting the whole show out there but rather the second segment of three from each show. This will give a good sampling of what the show is about and hopefully will have people wanting to see the show in it's entirety. Overall this is really to help pull in folks who may not be familiar with Geocaching World yet. Our regular viewers will already know to watch off off Thea RVNN.tv website or use ITunes and the like.

The main thing is to keep everyone informed as much as possible. So if Geocaching World comes up in one of your Geocaching discussions be sure to point the discussion to any one of the ways for everyone to enjoy our show. We would appreciate it greatly.

-HHH

Enjoy an early episode of Geocaching World where we talk about geocaching types.

IT'S ALIVE!!! - The RVNN.tv Tricaster Is Back

I was informed late last night by Creative Director Dave Dufour that the newly repaired and now revamped tricaster is finally back in the RVNN.tv studio. W00t! The tricaster FYI is the main piece of studio equipment used to control all the cameras, audio and other aspects of putting a TV show together while it is being recorded. Basically no tricaster - no shows.

We were really going on strong with Geocaching World recording two shows a week for months. Then we did two live shows at Geowoodstock IX the largest geocaching event in the world. Then... Whamo! Dead Tricaster.

That was the beginning of July and it is the 28th today. Way too long to not be doing the live recordings everybody loves so much. That has now changed. So here is what we are going to do. It looks like Monday, August 1st, 2011 will be the next time recording date. So be sure to mark your calendars and be in our chat room at 6:30pm EST. Why you ask? We have some major surprises in-store for our fans and viewers and if you want in on the action you have to be in the chat room to "get some".

More details will be leaked as we get closer to show time.

See you on Monday!

Geocaching World (RVNN.tv) at Geowoodstock IX : Live Part 1

(Photo from BigAl437)
Holy Cow we had a great time at Geowoodstock IX.

If you couldn't make being at the Geocaching World LIVE recording at GeoWoodstock IX you can now see the first of two shows we did that day.

Part One includes meeting up with several of the Geowoodstock Committee members, a contestant diving into an ammo box filled with 35mm containers and a really creative contest involving a nano log roll. Check out Dave Dufour and myself Andy HeadHardHat Smith from RVNN.tv as we host this live recording of Geocaching World.

Enjoy!
