Greatland Reviewer: I am disabling this cache to give the Cache Owner some time to "clean up" the cache page so it complies with the WebCam Guidelines.

Visiting cachers should be able to access the webcam(s) using the old-fashioned way by phone a friend and posting a screen shot. Alternatively, cachers can screen shot the webcam on their smart phone and upload that photo. Webcam photos are fairly obvious because of the time stamp and title borders. Cachers should be obvious in the photos to verify the "find" was not logged from a faraway armchair. For reference, the last apparent legitimate log with proper screen shot was taken on April 7, 2019.

The Cache Owner is expected to maintain the integrity of the cache page by deleting logs that do not comply with the logging requirements of a WebCam cache (reference the Reviewer Note of 9/8/19, complete with Knowledge Book links). Being seen on the webcam by friends without capturing an image of the visit does not comply with WebCam cache logging requirement. In other words, no screen shot of the webcam image, no find.

If a webcam goes offline for a while, the preferred course of action is to "Temporarily Disable" the cache page until the camera returns to service.

Geocache Description:

Multi Cache/Multi Webcam Cache. Nice walk through Waikiki.

Please note that due to changes in the webcams, saving images is no longer possible (or at least easy). From now on, in order to log a find, you need only be seen on the webcams by your friends.

First off, PLEASE DON'T LOOK AT OTHER PEOPLE'S PICTURES UNTIL YOU FINISH THE CACHE! Sorry for the caps, but it's important, as the pictures contain spoilers.

This is a combination Multi Cache/Multi-Webcam cache. Make sure to bring a cell phone to get a friend to see you on the webcams, and a pen and paper to write down info received.

The above coordinates put you in an open air parking lot in the middle of Waikiki. There is a lot of construction in the area of the parking lot, and the magnetic key case keeps disappearing. Until it settles down in the area, I'm posting the first destination coordinates in the clear: N 21° 16.532 W 157° 49.512

The coordinates are also for the location of a micro cache (magnetic key case) that is hidden here. I'll encrypt the actual description of the location, so hunt around a bit first... Remember, It's magnetic... If you aren't able to find it, I've also added the destination coordinates in the hints section.

OK, once you have the micro cache, you've got the coordinates for the first webacam. You also have part of the web page you're friend has to go to. Don't call your friend yet, the question marks have to be filled in. Write all the information down, and while you're at it, write down the name of the street just Mauka of you (probably the one you just came in off).

Next, go to the location of the first webcam. the question marks in the web address should be replaced by the first name on the plaque. Call your friend, look Mauka, and smile! (You might also want to raise your hands, as the camera covers quite a wide area).

Great, one webcam down, one to go...

The address of the second webacam is:

21 16.ABC

157 49.DEF

Where

  • A=Silver
  • B=3*Gold
  • C=2*Gold+Bronze
  • D=Gold
  • E=Silver+(# of tiki torches just behind)
  • F=2*Bronze+Silver

This all should be clearer when you're at the location.

Now that you have the coordinates to the second webcam, head there, and phone your friend again. This time, the question marks should be replaced by the street name you wrote down earlier. Look over the left shoulder of the famous landmark, wave your hands & smile.

For Bonus marks, there's a third webcam located between the two you've been to. I'll leave it up to you and your telephone buddy to figure this one out.

Post all your pictures here to show completion of the cache.

Hope you had fun!
