    LONG FORGOTTEN WISCONSIN TREASURE STORIES

    I have been looking into lost treasure stories in Wisconsin, looking for new places to explore, and ran across no shortage of some pretty cool ones.

    Even if most of them could be a little exaggerated over the years, they are certainly interesting.

    I am very quickly learning that we have quite a state!

    Yes those are the briefs, finding the stories is the fun. These brief are used over and over by many authors in the past.

    Agreed. Unfortunately finding the stories facts and displacing the fiction is sometimes easier said than done. My hope is to ignite a fire under one (or more) of them to help fuel research from multiple angles on any of the stories. Some of them have to hold at least SOME truths...... right tiredman?

    I have done so with all the briefs of Montana by Terry and Penfield. Those one to two sentences of info have become pages. About 3,000 pages, Wyoming is next. Today I looked at our covers for N.D., S.D., and Neb.,

    Thank you Tiredman for your input. I guess treasure "stories" never really implied treasure "facts". It's the stories that eventually lead to the research that leads to the facts.

    Sometimes the story is the treasure, all seem to have a truth to them.
