I know that military guys (and their wives) often volunteer to serve as Scout leaders, especially in overseas locations, and I was just wondering if anyone here did so during his tour in Taiwan.
A year ago I wrote a short piece asking if anyone recalled exactly where McCauley Beach was located. Someone left the following comment several weeks later:
McCauley Beach and Camp McCauley are at the following coordinates just east of Jinshan.
The area is pretty much unrecognisable today as the power station built in the '80s very much industrialised the area.
I remember being taken on one of the final excursions to Camp McCauley in late '78. The place was pretty much deserted. We kids were picked up in the 63 Club car park (exactly the same today as it was then!) in the morning and dropped off later in the evening covered in oil as there had been a recent spill.
We visited again several times in the '80s but as the power station grew it became less and less of a nice place to swim and it became little used.
If you'd like to see that location, the guys at the Linkou website have provided a map, as well as several photos of the Dawgs engaging in recreational activities at the beach.
