    Well, perhaps that's where the two heli's come into play.(?) There was a circle of trust between 3 people. THere is a difference between people that can get this type of federal license to haul this kind of gear, and the type of person that has a questionable history. If you think about it, I'm willing to bet, I'm not sure, But I'm willing to bet that his entire life, his entire history, his mom/dad/brothers/sisters/high school records/ etc. was looked at before he was given this level of trust. There are some American's that have a level of... well... being an American. Trustworthy. American's can shine, if you can believe that.

    I can sure spot a lot of you that have never worked for the goverment. You should be able to remember back in the vietnam war.The company building are tanks was moved to a new building a couple states away.well the biggest press used to do some of the work had to be moved on a low boy a special one.a sherrif in (georgia) i think pulled them over NO permits D.O.D just bull @@@ there way until this sherrif cought up to them.It set there for over a year with the feds screaming there heads off about national security thay finaly moved it by helicoppter if i remember right.and the state had a check in hand for all the damages done to the roads.Look it up it is a good story.

    They haul missels convential,all the time no armed cars following at all.when they haul nukes and they haul them all the time,they have a car in front and one in back plus a van that follows a couple miles back with a quick reaction team.And you would really be surprized at the number kept on the roads at all times.

    We're good. Don't worry about it. I was actually asking how to delete a specific post 'within' a thread. But don't worry about it. We'll keep this thread up. It'll eventually fizzle out, but we'll keep it on t-net just in case people find it interesting. No harm. It's safe enough. Who knows, maybe we'll get the actually driver here one day...
    ..and then, unicorns will grow from trees (according to some people anyways). Lol.

    You know, I'm actually quite puzzled as to your refusal to believe something like this could happen. I'm actually wondering why you disbeleive this story so much. My immediate thoughts are, you have a sense of 'that would never happen', but, you see, that is flawed thinking, because your statement is more of a 'guess', versus actual knowledge. You see, you were not in the government loop, when this occurred. You did not issue the permit, nor were you involved in the information about the transport.... You, in other words, you are basically just 'guessing' that this would never occur. Sure it sound unreasonable. It's the same with me... I, PERSOALLY, WOULD HAVE NEVER beveived it either... But, I understand that I 'could' be wrong. But you assert yourself as if you know the 'facts'. So, I'll give you this... If you were to admit that you are 'unsure' if this would happen, I would respect you for saying this.

    Attachment 647432Mike, It's the unlikely situation that a large government shippment of gold would be making stops along the way while delivering it.
    Did you actually see the gold? There is a chance that your boss or the driver were pulling a fast one over on you.
    Now as far as government clearance, NSA requires a lie detector test every 6 mo. to keep clearance. I know, I was in there a few times.

    I didn't see it, but my boss did. Again, my boss is a stand up guy. This story is from him, and he, knowing him as I do, would have no reason to fib. So, I stand firm. It really did happen.

    1. Son figure out how many Lbs Avdipoius of AU is in 3.2 Billion dollars at $1500.00 an ounce. And yes for those in the know this is a loaded question and so is the last one!

    2. Next figure out What the Volumn in Cubic Ft would be for a BAR of AU that weights 1000 lbs.

    3. and last ask yourself am I so damnn Stupid to beleive What I just tried to pass off as T-R-U-T-H to a bunch of OLD Treasure Hunters.

    If yu answered yes to the last question then you need to RTFM (Karl's THM #6 & 7) Then come back and Apolagize to the rest of us for Insulting Our Intellegence and Years of Legit research.

    Oh just for SH&Giggler Answer this; "Which weighs the most a pound of Feathers or a pound of AU?"

    Sincerely
    Bill A.

    Well you have had 7 days to figure it out and haven't so here is the answer!!!

    A Pound of Feathers!!!!!
    and here is the reason why.

    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/avoirdupois+weight

    avoirdupois weight
    noun
    the system of weights in British and U.S. use for goods other than gems, precious metals, and drugs:
    27.34375 grains = 1 dram;
    16 drams = 1 ounce;
    16 ounces = 1 pound;
    112 pounds (Brit.) or 100 pounds (U.S.) = 1 hundredweight;
    20 hundredweight = 1 ton.

    The (avoirdupois) pound contains 7000 grains. Abbreviation: av.; avdp.; avoir.

    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/troy+weight?s=t&ld=1064

    troy weight
    noun


    a system of weights in use for precious metals and gems
    (formerly also for bread, grain, etc.):

    24 grains = 1 pennyweight (1.555 grams);

    20 pennyweights = 1 ounce (31.103 grams);

    12 ounces = 1 pound (0.373 kilogram).

    The grain, ounce, and pound are the same as in apothecaries' weight,
    the grain alone being the same as in avoirdupois weight. The troy pound is no longer a standard weight in Great Britain.

    My Quote "The troy pound contains 5760 grains."

    This was for your edification and ludification.

    Sincerely
    Bill
