Can you spot the cacher?

Post by calumphing_four » 22 January 10 12:09 am

Hi All,
Had a new cache published tonight, which has a webcam pointed straight at GZ.
The webcam is located here: http://www.birkenheadtavern.com.au/ (Note: it sometimes takes a few seconds for the webcam picture to load).
If you spot anyone caching, feel free to post a note along with the picture to the cache page GC220DZ
Cheers 8)

That was a visit from the amphibian nation. In lycra! Do we want to see Langy in lycra?

You need to use "Print Screen" to capture the image. Not sure what settings they've used, but the normal "Copy Image" from the webcam picture doesn't work on this webcam.

They use some java code to stop you.

If you want to do it normally try this address to view the image directly. http://www.birkenheadtavern.com.au/webcam/current.jpg

If that's not enough lycra, here's some more:

The devil girl never wants to have a picture taken with me. She only likes blokes :?

When I get around to having a go at this cache, I'll be on bike too. The pub across the road might start wondering why the area is suddenly attractive to cyclists....

Hey Claire, what's with the "Chicken Strips" on the helmet? That's what my son and I call them during the September magpie season here in Victoria. I mean - you're wearing a helmet for goodness sakes! What more protection could you need?

And yes, you do get a bump when they hit (I know)... :evil:

Team identification! And of course, I didn't see a single member of my team during the whole ride anyways....
Don't ask me how many questions I got about magpies, or TV reception :mrgreen:

We just saw 2 geocachers. One was wearing a green shirt and the other was a white top. By the looks of it they were 2 different teams. 19:09 Sunday 31st January 2010.

Cool 8)
