re: Greetings from Tahiti

Hi Everyone;

Bob is probably hoping to find the "Lost Island" that was depicted in that six season drama, filmed in Hawaii.

I always suspected those six groups of numbers were actually the latitude and longitude of a WWII spotter's island hideout. Many Australians were employed all around the Pacific Ocean, on uninhabited islands to spot Japanese Ships and what direction they were headed.

Altho they would hide out in natural caves, there would not have been the very complex and elaborate stuff that was seen in lost. Unless of course someone else before built it and they just took advantage of what was already there.

Here in Lake County Michigan, just a couple of miles south of Baldwin, is a ghost town. It once covered 80 acres, and was the worlds largest cement plant. A few years after it was built, someone discovered a cheaper way to make cement, and it went into receivership and failed by 1907.

Today it is all grown over and mostly invisible from Google earth. It had over 70 houses for workers, an opera house, and several stores, that was the town plus the 80 acres of infrastructure. When WWII happened it was dynamited for the scrap steel and most of it is gone into the mists of time.

Just playin' archaeologist....

I think you mean Papeete. That is where International flights land in French Polynesia, on the island of Tahiti. That's where I went for my Honeymoon. There are several interesting islands in the Society Islands, and Bora Bora is a good one.

Fiji and Samoa aren't far away geographically, but aren't part of French Polynesia.
