    Fantastic Meetup in Australia! Plenty of time for people to consider getting tickets to the event and make travel arrangements.

    Super time for a vacation too! It's the fall season in Australia so a perfect time to visit.

    Look at the wonderful area in Gold Coast! https://www.google.com/maps/place/Broadbeach+QLD+4218,+Australia -- I bet there is some good fishing in the area too! Hmm.

    I think I can swing things to be there for the Saturday and maybe part of Sunday (depending on flight times). Looking forward to it!

    Are those canals for water navigation between homes and such? Or just to help prevent massive neighborhood fires? There are a lot of canals, sort of like Venice (Italy and Los Angeles)!

    One thing about making a LONG trek to Australia (physically or virtually) is learning about Australia too! Perhaps your event there can open our eyes to what Australia is like, even if we can't attend in person.

    You have a vast and great country of much history, personality, people, and environment. I cannot attend, yet following YOUR SotA adventure in Australia for this gathering/meetup event would be grand indeed!

    If I may be so bold, perhaps this thread can do more than invite people to the event and report the results ... it can help educate us about (in fact lure us to) Australia. What's life like in Australia? Shoot us some videos!

    Thanks!

    @Winfield (and anyone else who may somehow be interested):
    We have travelled a bit, and I like to wave the video camera when we do. then I construct a movie when we get home. A small sample (about Japan) is here
    So, I also have some stuff on Australia; Tasmania, Northwest Australia (Kimberley region) and the Northern Territory. A really older video on the Barrier Reef. And I'm sure to have other stuff.
    Can't put these on YouTube - they're too long, and back in the day before I discovered Smartsound and creating my own backing music, I "borrowed" tunes, which are unfortunately copyright. So YouTube would spit at me.
    If anyone really wants, I would be willing to run off a DVD and post it.

    @Asclepius - that was a fabulous video!
    • I loved the Koi (did you catch any)?
    • The gardens are breathtaking, only for looking -- the sand/gravel areas along with manicured grass and trees. The bamboo and rock waterfalls - so peaceful. Reminds me of a small backyard I created/crafted in Las Vegas out of rock, stone, cactus, small trees, and back-breaking underground water pipes to my small waterfall - no fish though. The next owners ripped it all up and put in a big swimming pool, again with no fish.
    • I really liked how you videoed things slowly, without commentary. The music and scenes told it all. I could have looked at some of those views for 10s of moments and not be bored.
    • Ah, I see how SotA got some architecture designs from Japan!
    • Loved the Samurai fight ... glad the two girls killed the bad guys.
    Mostly, I liked watching that video (versus other YouTube videos) because I know the person taking the video ... and I felt like I was standing right next to you when you were observing such great wonders.

    As for the DVD, I'd not have enough bandwidth to download it really. But if you want to try, I can download overnight/days ... after all, that's what I do with a certain game once per month on a certain Thursday morning/afternoon/evening/night. *smiles*

    Great stuff... you are a Master! Thanks!

    Thank you @Winfield - I really appreciate your words! I just have fun, it's a bit of a hobby:)
    Didn't catch any koi - like much in Japan it's lookie but no touchie...
    Yes the bandwidth issue is a thing - they have promised me real fast super internet in a fortnight, but I'll believe it when I see it. In the meantime my upload speed is abysmal. I was more thinking old school - if you want to PM me your RL address I can send you a disk or two by regular mail. Would probably get there just as fast also:D

    I know were getting a little off-topic but DAMN @Asclepius I found that video super Zen (pun intended) ;)

    The combination of your soothing voice and wonderful videography was super relaxing and enjoyable. Now we just need you to film when you guys get together for Aussie SoTACON. :D

    @Winfield, the Gold Coast canals are mainly used as a 4B-style maze to confuse the sharks.
