It's hard to believe but to my knowledge there has never been a webcam cache in Oklahoma. If there has, it didn't last long. Well folks, the wait is over. Welcome to Oklahoma's first webcam cache.
If you have always wanted one of those little flashy webcam icon's on your user stats page, now is your chance. This little webcam looks out from the south side of City Hall in Shawnee, OK. Which is incidently the town where I grew up.
The camera is visible in the window from the sidewalk as you walk by. There is also parking right in front of the cam. To view it online you will need to visit the Shawnee City Hall Webcam. In order to claim the cache you will need to have someone find you online while you stand in front of the camera. You can click the Large Java or Small Java links at the top of the page to get a live motion camera. But the finder will have to be standing in front of the camera when it takes an updated shot every 60 seconds. You can save the photos to your hard drive by using the Large Pic or History Links.
You must then upload your photo on your cache log. You must accomplish ONE of any of these three items to log the cache: hold your GPS in hand, wear a geocaching shirt, or you must hold up a funny sign that proves you are a geocacher. Flattery will get you everywhere on this one. Failure to show the proper identification will result in a deleted log. The area is well lit and you could probably see yourself at night but it would probably be best to do this one during the daylight hours for best results.
Please note, I do not control the webcam, nor do I have any control of the webcam. Please do not send me emails complaining about the webcam, I cannot do anything for you. There is a link on the webcam page to do that. I highly suggest making sure the webcam is working before going out to log it.
Here I am at the webcam talking on my cell phone. This photo would be a successful log
A special thanks to CCATBQFM who helped me get the photo so I could get the proper coordinates.
