    Hey, I can come up with several scenarios. But since you are keeping mum, how am I to know which would be more accurate? And you don't give grannies much credit. Be careful because NOW or AARP could get on your case.


    I'm joking. Please be assured that I believe if grannie planted the stash, she should have planted it on her own land - or run the risk of losing it. I'm just having a little fun with you because you won't give us the story. Relax, I'm on your side. But poor grannie.....LOL

    Re: Picture journal of a modern cache

    what a cool quest. Be my luck I could decode the message. I can't even follow a modern map. Thank God yahoo maps has directions wrote down. Now if I could just get them to add, turn by big tree close to the blue house go down 1 mile um 10 houses to the left. I can handle those directions.
    But That is one awesome cache you have hope you find more.

    Thank's for sharing. I always thought that when and if I find a cache. I would say that I am posting this for a friend. And then share it with T-NET members. Congratulations on your success.....Steve

    Re: Picture journal of a modern cache

    Thanks everybody. I just wanted to share some of the excitement I felt when I was hunting for this treasure and digging it up. I still get chills and goosebumps thinking about it.

    T-girl, Don't feel bad. I couldn't figure out the person's code either. Luckally, there were place names, street names, landmarks and other clues in the message that I recognized or could look up. I couldn't figure out any X marks the spot, but I figured out the general area where the cache was buried. Then it took a lot of thorough metal detecting of the whole area to find the cache.

    T-Tales, "Granny" could be male or female and I'm a member of AARP myself. The cache was buried on fairly rugged terrain. Granny would have to have been a mountain biker or climber to get to the spot, carrying a heavy load of coins and a good size shovel, then dig a 2 foot deep hole to bury the stuff, then make it back down the hill totally exhausted without falling and breaking a leg or worse. When I said it took a lot of effort, that's what I meant. It also took a lot of mental effort to make up a treasure code. Maybe not as much as the Beal Code, but still it took a lot of thought.

    I can't tell you the whole story, because I don't know the whole story. I read recently about a person who buried caches of jewelry in different spots all over the world and then wrote a book about it, giving clues to where the caches were buried. I think I stumbled onto something like that, a treasure game. And there may be other places and countries, such as Canada, where the person buried stuff. (The note started off with "USA, ________, PA"). Why would the country be mentioned? I'd really like to meet the person to find out what the plan was, but I don't think I'd let on that I found any of the caches. This was just the tip of the iceberg, my friend.

    W-man, I think there is a very good possibility that there is another treasure code message out there somewhere. Man, I would love to find another one. Happy hunting.
    Bob

    MXTswinger,

    Detector used: Minelab Explorer II. Loop: the standard 10.5 inch.
    Signal strength: Loud and clear with a double bleep. Think of a high pitch sound something like "Bla-loop, Bla-loop."
    VDI: None. I use the Smartfind screen only. The target crosshairs were in the very upper right hand corner of the screen.
    Depth: It was about 10 inches down to the tops of the bottles and the bottles were right side up. The actual depth reading was only about 4 inches due to the large size of the target.
    Also, the detector was pinpointing in several different places, but I didn't need precise pinpointing anyway.

    But just think, if you had just stumbled onto it it wouldn't have been half the fun. M nty

    Re: Picture journal of a modern cache

    great find, but i don't think it was buried that long ago. those styles of gatorade and powerade plastic bottles are fairly new. can you read the flavor of the drink? if so that could be a clue, since they come out with new flavors every so often. i think that cache was buried only a few years ago, tops.

    Skierbob, my hat is off to you. Thanks for letting me rib you a little - paid off because you gave us a few more bits of the story. LOL There are more caches associated with this one, you think? Holy Crap!

    Whenever you feel comfortable, if ever, please give us more info. It's hard not to want to hear the whole story because when we aren't out finding treasure ourselves, the next best thing is reading about others who have. We sometimes live our lives vicariously!

    Good luck with finding more. Wiping drool from keyboard.
