I noticed that my last log was changed to 'comment' and rightly so. I would have only wished to get an email or so automatically from the system. I only discovered it by accident. Anyway - I spent (too) much time today to catch a moving convertable, but got lucky, as you can see. Thanks again for the cache.

An hour later I got an even better one. You can see both below.

I didn't have to wait long, but zooming into the right position was a bit of a problem. However, I finally got an open convertable nicely into the picture. Only problem was: it was standing.

I was just on a short vacation out west and had a chance to drive across the Hoover Dam on my way to Arizona for a quick GC.com virtual. Was sort of diappointed that there wasn't one for the dam, though.

Was glad to learn I could log this interesting, but time comsuming web cam Navicache.

Finally found a convertable just before 2:00 PM EST.

Thanks!

Just for insurance against my pic going missing again:

I was looking for GeoDashPoints nearby and saw this one and now I am a member of navicache.com and ran the web-cam for a few minuted and saw this convertible going by. It even looks like the top is down on this cool December day.

Nanu, fuhr das Cabrio nicht schon einmal um 20:00 MEZ durch das Bild?
Danke für den virtuellen Ausflug in die beeindruckende Schlucht.
