    Re: The Offer

    Matt, I can tell you have never cache hunted, or should I say, successfully cache hunted. The work load to verify and locate is out of this world. I would still be working on it if I didn't have a partner on it. I work with partners all over the USA. I swap info on locations and advice about areas. There are a few good guys out there that I would enjoy working with and a few that I have worked with. It's a bit safer when you have someone to cover your backside while digging or detecting. Most caches aren't in areas where there are people around. Sure, I have gone after some alone in desolate areas, and spent a lot of time monitering my surroundings. I am a lone wolf myself, but there are times when the pack dominates.

    I know, buddy. I was kidding. As in, you would get more without a partner...ha ha, right? lol I've never cache hunted before and wouldn't know where to begin! I commend you on your efforts and good luck with this all. I'll be waiting to see the outcome.

    Re: The Offer

    If I were the property owner and someone told me there was $12.75 million in gold on my property and if I let him and his partner search he would give me 1/3 of it I think I would hire a bulldozer and doze the entire 10 acres before I would let anyone take 2/3 of MY treasure. I also find it hard to believe that if there is a treasure that large in my area that I couldn't figure out what it might be by just talking to some of the old timers. Every area I have ever lived in has had its fair share of miser gold, buried stolen money, buried gangster money, civil war era gold that was hidden to keep it out of enemy hands, etc. Each and every one of these stories come from talking to old timers. Now that the land owner thinks he's got close to $13 million on his land I fear he will get a little more involved in trying to find out more about the story.

    Re: The Offer

    OK lime, let me clear your mine for you.
    -The story was listed as $150,000. The fact that it is probably in $20 gold US coins makes it worth over $12M

    -It could be on one of several properties so he isn,t going to spend a bundle bulldozing his land.

    -It's not his cache, It wasn't placed by a prior owner so technically it belongs to a decendant of the cachier.

    -Now you mention that you have found out about a lot of big caches in your area from elderly people. My question is how many have you recovered? The point is hearing all those stories and finding the actual cache are two different things.

    - I have chased many caches all over the USA. A lot are bogus. I have found a few small ones, but non this big and I am researching two bigger ones. The odds are stacked against you in cache hunting so when you hit it, you don't want to give away the lions share. Frank

    make sure you get both the husband and the wife to sign any papers that way the wife can't come back and contest the claim. But I am sure you already know this!

    Re: The Offer

    Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered. I'd have to side with the land owner. As was suggested earlier, I would shoot for 50/50 after expenses and be happy about it. If I owned the property, I would certainly feel entitled to half of what is technically 100% my money.

    25% of over 12 million is much more gooder than 100% of nothing.

    Just my opinion. Good luck.

    Re: The Offer

    GibS, You have to look at it from the land owners side. He now has 0% of "his" money and he could be looking at $4 1/4M.

    Re: The Offer

    How many here on T-Net use a bulldozer to hunt for a cache? Would any of you folks pay top dollar for a $20 gold coin that has been run over by a bulldozer? How much does it cost to bulldoze 10 acres? What are the chances of finding anything behind a bulldozer?

    I'm not hatin' Frank, just giving my personal opinion. I really do hope it works out for you.

    Now if I were the land owner, I'd be getting me one of those special $325 plumbobs a certain site sponsor sells and find that cache in minute

    I'm not offended OD. I'm not saying Frank is right or wrong, I just tendered my opinion based upon what I would do.

    Re: The Offer

    If you think the land owner is wrong for asking for a 50-50 split, and you turn him down. You say thats better than nothing....Flip the coin, 25% is better than nothing. I'd take his offer. If you don't all three lose out' and the landowner can probably afford nothing alot better than you and your partner.....I'm just saying Good Luck

    Re: The Offer

    For me, there is always another cache. I have 2 more on the back burner. For the landowner there would always be tbe bitter memory of how he passed up $4 1/4 M. You see, I never count my chickens before they hatch. Frank

    Re: The Offer

    I think 50/50 is a pretty darn good deal, considering its HIS property to do as he wishes and you will get nothing if you dont. If you or anyone else is that geedy, then you should leave your partner at home and do the deed.

    I bet if you took a poll, most on here would take 50 percent of the find and be happy campers.
