Not a question about Minnesota webcams or whether Waymarking is a dud or not. What I want to get is a general feeling for how many webcam finds you all have. Who has the most, including ALL webcam cache finds, not just Minnesota.

I've done 9. Plan on doing the Duluth cam in two weeks. There are over 12 webcams on my planned route out east end of this July.

Does KB have a webcam challenge cache? If not, what would the goal be? 50 might be tough since there are't 50 within a 1000 mile radius of Rosemount.

Huh. I only have three. Two are legitimate. The other was in italy. For that one, the camera was down and i had no cell phone to call anyone with, so I just took a picture of the webcam. I have looked back and it doesnt seem to be maintained as it is still down 2 years later.

I only have 2, one in DC the other in Vegas. They aren't so easy to come by anywhere...

We have a total of 4, two in Minnesota that have both been archived, one in Florida and one in Hawaii. I would do more but often they are brutal to coordinate. FL was easy cause I was down there for work so I could call the wife to coordinate it. We were together in HI, so that took a little planning (especially since they are 4 hours behind Minneapolis) but I discovered that webcam ran a 12 hour loop automatically, so then it was finding a piece of software that would grab the individual frame of the loop I downloaded. A lot of effort for one more number. Much the way some of the earthcaches and virtual caches are these days with all the extra stuff you have to email out. Oh well, it is all part of the fun!

Another webcam bites the dust? Looks like the sdsmt webcam in Rapid City is gone.

BTW, my webcam count is now 22. Perhaps this should be on the milestone page? I think every webcam is a milestone.

I've just got one, the cache at The Alamo in San Antonio. I don't know that I've even been close to another one. The Duluth one wasn't working when I was up there this summer.

Must require some addin I don't have. Perhaps send that as a note to the cache owner.

My total webcam count is now 28. Unless someone else comes along and claims the top spot, webcams will be my entry into the MN Geocachers Hall of Fame.. that's assuming the Coffin category is not approved. Wink

Also have another 18 webcams scheduled to be visited this year between road cruises out west and back to OBX.

Alas I thought I was doing good with 13 webcam caches. Might have to try and up that some how. Hmmm.... thinking....

I have recorded 4 WebCam caches.

Ely

UMD - Duluth

Creighton University - Omaha, NE

Northwestern University - Evanston, IL

I also tried, unsuccessfully, to record one at Iowa State - Ames, IA.

Years ago I tried to list a couple at Saint Cloud State. Can't remember what happened there. Some concern the reveiwer had I believe. Maybe it was a Waymark I was attempting. Oh well.

I am just noticing how many of these webcams have ties to colleges/universities. Must have been early adapters of webcams I suppose.

They are so few and far betwen now, I am not too sure I will ever get another. I haven't been seeking them out though, or avoiding them either as far as that goes.

Anyway, I have recorded 4 and I am happy to have them.

Kurt

I only focus on them because of how rare they are.

Webcam in Ames, IA did this last weekend. It does help that the majority of them are on college campuses. There's usually wifi available in some flavor. And my new webcam capture application works for nearly every webcam except those Java control cams, which I'll eventually figure out how to do.
