Does anyone else have any views on this that would make webcam Caches a bit tougher to do? maybe some brain work or perhaps some trivia solving online to get the camera location and coordinates?
I have already thought about this while preparing to set up some here in my area.
First, use clues just like other caches. Saying "here are the coordinates to Ace Drug Store at 5th and Main go stand in front of their web cam" is hardly a challenge. I say just give coordinates and clues like any other cache.
This means that you will also have to be selective in the cams you use, just as you are selective of the areas you hide a normal cache. Try to pick one that does not give a view that makes it's location obvious. This way even after the person arrives in the area they will still need to look around for the cas placement.
Many state and national parks as well as college campuses, malls etc, now have live web cams so there are several ways this type cache could be done.
