Ex-CIA Loses the Way on Hunt
Expect a little extra activity around the National Building Museum on Monday.
The finale for NBC's puzzle-solving reality show "Treasure Hunters" will be broadcast live at 9 p.m. from the museum as the show's three remaining teams ("Southie Boys," "Air Force" and "Geniuses") learn who won the secret prize.
Todd Moore of Sterling and Jacob Porter of McLean, on the show's "Ex-CIA" team, were eliminated from the competition a few weeks ago but will appear in the finale. "I'm very disappointed," said Porter of his team's failure to make it to the final leg of the contest. "We would have had a huge advantage. We know where everything is in the city."
Moore said he took a month off from his job as a software architect to do the show when the majority of it was filmed last year. "It was a good experience. It taught me to get out and do more in life," he said. The Ex-CIA team got its moniker because Moore, Porter and teammate Mark West all worked for the government agency at some point.
While the team lost out on the final prize (Moore is guessing it's a "large sum of money"), Ex-CIA did win $30,000 in an earlier challenge. The team just hasn't seen the cash yet. "After taxes, after it's split three ways . . . we're going to get a couple of bucks," Moore said. "In our minds, it was great to win it."
Moore said he's excited to see his fellow contestants again and will "be happy for whichever team wins."

2006 photos: Equipment this year: I was using all six Fuji cameras at various times -- an S602Zoom, two S7000s,a S5200, an S9000, and an S9100. The majority of pictures this year were taken with the S9000. I have to say, the S7000s was the best camera I've used up to this point..
Trips this year: Florida (two separate trips including Lotusphere and taking care of mom), three weeks out west (including Yellowstone), Williamsburg, San Diego (comic book convention), and Georgia.
Number of photos taken this year: 183,000.
