    I'd like to find a more precise location, Carreta Canyon is pretty close to where I'm at.

    Elkman....I really couldn't say. I just research the old newspapers on things folks are looking for and if I get lucky (as I did with this map I posted)...I try to pass it on...I'll see if I can find anything in the newspapers and post...k?

    That old map is quite large.

    26"X38" and lists seventy two locations.

    At one time it was exclusively distributed by Many Feather's Trading Post, in Wickenburg Az.

    It was a Copyright, 1969 , by Lee Hammons.

    Maybe that will help you a bit in your research.

    Re: Mysteries in the Mountains

    I have been to and around The Arivaca Area lots of times.
    My last trip down there ,
    I was south, right, on the border, camping in "Fresnal Canyon", near the water tank ( a damed up gulley where water collects)
    Where there's a Spanish mine and a modern gold mine (abandon)
    I have also camped at Arivaca Lake, that's southeast of town, about 15 miles
    And!
    I have been into the mnts on that side, the westside, of Tumacacori/Atacosa Mnts!
    And!
    Up into the Twin Peaks area ! East of town above the Lake!
    What are you looking for ?
    The Canyon that has Silver Nuggets laying around?
    There's a gentleman in town who knows where it is and goes out and collects bucketsful of them!
    Doc & I will be going into the area that's Southeast of town, 'bout 15 miles SE !
    Looking for a lost Spanish Mine/Mission!
    In the Pajarita Wilderness area!
    It was found and then relost back in 1947 or so!
    The "Finder" disappeared and was never found (By his partner and the Sherriff's Posse)
    Could be "The CURSE!" of the Old Padres at work!
    BUT!
    If you need a hand ,drop us'ns a note/PM/reply/email/etc !! !
    We'll be in the area for months ..
    Just look for the Yellow Jeep Wagoneer a'pull'n the small trailer!
    With a large dog! looking out the Jeep window!

    I see a article in the local paper about drug smugglers in the Pipe Cactus Monument area. The university is stopping funding of research because of safety concern. Not sure of that location. This was my problem E of Douglas. You better be on the look out or your truck will be in Mexico and a bad ending if your lucky enough to be left standing. I was hoping to go with a couple other people to be safer now days. Bad when it comes to this!!

    I am not a loner and like a lot of you guys it pays to team up with the hog leg toters, like myself in an area near the border. After being in a few wars you get spooked easy. Having a good dog is smart, you have some protection and a good alarm system plus a friend, but don't risk him or her..

    CptBil,


    If you make it and you need someone to camp sit while you are out doing your thing I can likely volunteer a day or two here and there depending on my work schedule. It won't take me long to get down from Tucson.

    Doc,AZ,CptBil, When I am prepared for my excursion, I hope Apr. I would like to camp near or around where you people are. I have to get a couple of more items to be equipt. I miss my truck since I sold it but I am going for 4wd. I have just about every thing I need to find treasure/gold. Since I am a ham, I will have my SSB and can talk anywhere.
    I may have to cut my trip short because I have a Dr. appt 9th of Oct. thats only 9 months from now.(for a Check up)
    What trouble will I have with a 7mm carbine with a 30 round clip or a side arm? I like a revolver because it doesn't throw those shells out. I doubt you need them further north so I can play that by ear, you folks know what to expect and keep me posted. I really don't care about toting a hog leg but sometimes theres two legged animals out there.G'Day
