Editor’s Note: While Dr. Blong’s previous article in this special issue outlines his more scholarly pursuits while in Papua New Guinea alongside a few very short anecdotal “field tales”, one of the items reviewers suggested was more depth and detail of those “field tales” he briefly touches on throughout the essay. Rather than tack-on these short happenings to the main article, and to address the reviewers’ desires, I asked Russell to compile a set of less academic field tales. The result is below, based on his many visits to PNG from 1970s-2000s, some of which he shared with Colin Pain (who also writes about his experiences in PNG for this special issue).
