    Who is likely to stash a modern day cache?

    Times have changed since many old caches were hidden away. Today most folks that have access use banks unless they have a good reason for not wanting to. But there are still many good reasons for hiding valuables, particularly with so many filing for bankruptcy and divorce. Hiding assets during these proceeding is not something new. Also, avoiding the IRS and law enforcement is another good reason.

    I have only recently begun to consider cache hunting and given thought to who might have been candidates for hiding them. To me the logical candidates are those people that might have died suddenly, become incarcerated for a long period or suffered deteriorating mental abilities during the later stages of their life. It would seem logical that if someone had stashed away valuables they would have used them toward the end of their life unless something or some event prevented them from doing so.

    I have tried to place myself in their shoes to determine what I might have done and what would have occurred if something unexpected happened to me.

    However, I know that two or more heads are better than one so I am inviting comments from anyone that has any ideas to contribute to this discussion.

    Some people just like to keep cash on hand. They would rather pay cash and avoid the hassle of banking.

    I think today's cache would be found more in the homes instead of being buried out in the yards, Just from the laziness of people now days.

    Bob, do you have anybody in mind who's possible caches you may be looking for? Also, if someone hid items belonging to them, on their property, and you came and discovered them while they were in prison or away and took them...i dont know it just sounds like it could lead to trouble.

    Crawl spaces are safer from rain and prying eyes. People who have cash businesses hide income from the tax man. Yup, they do.

    No one in mind at this time. Just trying to establish the possibilities for research. As with any venture you have to way the possible risks versus the possible rewards. If I knew a bank robber was in prison for 25 years and he might have buried the loot at his house and the house had been vacant for some time, now let me think, what would I do? Seriously, I would first try to find legitmate access to the property, maybe by renting it, offering a free boron inspection, appraisal service, whatever came to mind. Then if that didn't work I would have to consider other alternatives which I won't discuss here. Read Karl VonMueller's books.

    No, i completly agree with you. If the reward outweighs the risks, then go for it, just be careful as always. And yes i do need to read that book! From what ive heard its full of vital information for thr's.

    There is more than one book, but the most popular ones are Treasure Hunters Manual #6 and #7. They can be found on the internet for around $10-15 each.

    Re: Who is likely to stash a modern day cache?

    I was recently visiting my grandfather and one night after dinner the two of us were sitting outside around the fire talking with a friend of his, lets call him joe.

    Joe had recently went through a nasty divorce from his wife of many years. His exact words were "she took me to the cleaners", and laughed about it. I asked how that is funny and this is what he told me. Joe said that she hated doing any gardening but insisted they have rose bushes around their house. So he had to build the flowerbeds and maintain all these rose bushes for years. The entire time they lived there she "never did a bit of gardening". Well when the divorce was final he lost the house, car, and most of the savings. she went as far as hiring a forensic accountant to look for anything else she could take.

    About a year later Joe tells his daughter to take her mother to a city about an hour away for a nice birthday dinner. He says call me when you are at the restaurant , which she does. Joe then went to his old house and dug up over 100k from that flowerbed. This happened in the last 10 years, so they are still hiding money out there.

    Needless to say this got me really interested in cache hunting.

    Re: Who is likely to stash a modern day cache?

    Maybe 10 years or so ago, I was having a Field Consultation with a Contractor for a hillside tennis court project with stables below, for an estate in a equestrian community.

    While discussing the plans over the hood of a truck, a caravan of local Police and Feds pulled onto the site...

    And within a few hours, they had opened the concrete floor of the garage and had uncovered several sealed barrels containing cash.

    Being drug related, the property was seized, and needless to say, the project ended abruptly.

    Later, it was published in a local paper that money was found buried on several homes the dealer bought for his mother and other family members.
