Description:

Coordinates are of a public sidewalk on a public web page of a traffic cam. The goal is capture yourself within the image taken by the traffic webcam.

TIPS:
Before coming out to visit, you should verify that this particular webcam is updating images with the current date. Some traffic cams are known to stop working for a week or two stretch... so you may as well check to see if all your ducks are in a row.

William Howard Taft Road does not allow parking. It is also a one-way street going westbound. It is, however, equipped with two nice sidewalks across the bridge, and parking within 0.15 miles. You can park to the west around Reading Road and the White Castle's, or to the east on May Street. Both choices seem equal, and the day I tested this, I found ample spaces all around May Street.

You can find the webcam moving image here: http://www.artimis.org/camera/cam86page.html
or you can use the direct still image here: http://cmhimg01.dot.state.oh.us/images/artimis/CCTV086.jpg

Most cachers recruit a partner by phone to save the image. I completed this one by myself using an Android smartphone/tablet. Remember to face north toward the camera and smile!

Happy trails, fellow cachers!
