Has anyone did the Mount Washington Webcam Cache (GCN32T) (http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=8b015f48-ab8d-4184-be24-a7b652b6ee3d)? If so, how much of a hike is it to the top from the parking lot? I might be doing this cache next month, if I do, I'll be needing a "phone a friend." :)

If I'm home, I can help. I do know that cell phones do not work...but there is a pay phone. The camera only reloads every 15 minutes. It is on our to do list for this summer as well.

If you need someone at a computer to save the picture, let me know. I'll be glad to do it if I'm home the day you go.

(And hopefully you'll reciprocate if and when RULOST2? and I do it! We've never been up Mt. Washington, but have talked many times about doing so.)

:D:D

I'll be headed in that direction the first week of October. Leaving here going to Bangor, then Newport, then across route 2 to Gorham, NH, then headed south, possibly to the NH coast, then up the coast and head for home.

I wished I'd known there would be so many volunteers as I mentioned a couple days ago that we did Mt Washington two weekends ago. We put a stone on the tribute cache but didn't know anyone to call for the webcam. And which parking lot did you mean? The one at the top of the auto road or the one at the bottom of the mountain on the hiking trail? It's only a couple hundred feet from the one at the top.

Thanks Haffy. I tried it with my cell phone (tracfone) but I couldn't get it to work. :(

I haven't tried it either but maybe someone else on here will give it a shot and see if it works. I just happened to see it on GC.com the other day and thought that if it worked it would help out those who can't get to someone with access to a computer. Maybe someone will pipe in and tell us how it works!!!

I believe the webcam was on top of the visitors center, in the viewing area, if I am not mistaken. It was so windy that I did not go up but my husband did. The hike there from the parking lot is nothing to worry about.

We was around Mount Washington for 2 days. Both days it was closed to vehicles, because of the SNOW!!! We thought about going up the railway, but didn't bother. So hopefully next time we are there, it won't be snowing. :)

You might also try the archives at the following address:http://public.fotki.com/MWO/saved/2008/deck/ of course this takes a little while for your picture to get into the archive.
