    The narrative in the Beale Papers makes these alleged journeys transporting the weighted wagons of gold and silver as a simple endeavor, not so much a "perilous adventure".
    Not only did they do it in secret, they did without roads and crossing the Mississippi River with those loads at that time would have been an undertaking in itself, and would have required outside help to accomplish that.
    Yet, the "unknown author" wants the reader to believe that all this occurred without anyone making note of this activity.

    Planning, resources, and advanced preparation. These are things that were done, according to the Beale papers. I would think that ANY trip out west beck in those days would take such preparations, etc., yet we know that many such trips were successfully made. Not saying this one took place, just saying it would not have been anything out of the ordinary. Considering that if the party had 10 carts (just a possibility), then that would make the weight of the treasure about the same as 2-3 average men per cart or wagon. That's not much at all for a team of oxen, or work horses, or whatever they COULD HAVE had. Whether or not this actually happened, it was definitely not impossible, or even out of the ordinary.

    It does prove that wagons traveled the Old Sante Fe trail years before William Bechnell. If the story is true?

    Just like C. Columbus was a couple hundred years late being the first white man to come upon the shores of the US of A. Does not matter anyway as the Indian was on shore waving them to come ashore.

    "US of A"...? I thought it was Central America...

    Advanced preparation and planning, as well as resources are NOT discussed in the Beale Papers, but are another item left for the readers imagination. This is discussed in the link below:
