wornout: The business has move due to a huge rent increase which means the webcam is gone too. If they reopen in another location, I will bring this cache back.

Geocache Description:


Why not come on down to San Felipe and log your webcam find? This Webcam cache is meant to be fun. The coordinates will put you at the webcam itself. This is live camera that updates every 15 minutes. The goal is to log the cache by capturing an image of yourself with your GPSr in view of the webcam abd then upload the image with your log description.



In the old country, capturing your image with your GPSr on a webcam site is a fairly easy task. All it takes is you, with a GPSr, at the webcam site, a cell phone and a partner connected to the internet site of the webcam. Here in the Baja this is a little more difficult. Here is our twist on logging this cache.

What you will need to do during working hours:

Go to the listed coordinates during normal working hours Mon - Sat. There is a computer there and the owner would be more than happy to capture your picture WITH YOUR GPSr. You can either upload your picture at that time or you will receive instructions on how to do this later. There is a wired network and a Wi-Fi connection at this site so if you have a laptop, bring it with you.

What you will need (after hours):

A GPSr, a friend at a computer with an internet connection, to this webpage: http://www.blueroadrunner.com/geocachers.htm and a set time when you will be at the cache site. Go to the coordinates of this cache. Your friend will have to wait for a picture update with you in the picture! (this webcam updates every 15minutes). Your friend will have to capture a picture of you with your GPS'r

In Summary:

As you can see, this is much easier to do during working hours. Found it! logs without proper pictures will be deleted. Please wait until you have your picture ready for upload before making a log entry.

Disclaimers:

I do not own or control this webcam. I do not get any warning when this camera is down for maintenance and/or repair. If the webcam is not working, for any reason, a photo taken of you with your GPSr, at the cache site, is acceptable. Ensure, that you are seen in the picture and it is obvious that you are at the cache site. Please, no blank pictures telling me is was night and your flash didn't work. We may be retired and slow here in San Felipe but we and not stupid. You are under absolutely no obligation to have fun on the beach or in town but it is highly encouraged.
