    haha. Can't have any middle ground, eh ? To show any shadow of doubt on the "trend", is to say "therefore: No goodies ever exist". Right ?

    Yes. There is no doubt that the lure-of-treasure (and accompanying stories) is intoxicating. The "lost mine" and "stolen stagecoach loot" stories sold many many TH'ing and Western-lore magazines of the 1960s & '70s.

    As for "all leads can be traced back in time", I assume you mean the facts surrounding your stories, right ? And as I said: I have no doubt that every treasure legend is built around real names, dates, and events. Eg.: 99% true. It's that 1% (whether or not there was ever any treasure) that gets ya every time though

    The mountains have rules.They are harsh rules,but they are there,and if you keep to them you are safe.A mountain is not like men. A mountain is sincere. The weapons to conquer it exists inside you,inside your soul.

    You need to let go of the having to find the treasure idea. Just the thoughts of lost treasure sold metal detectors, books, magazines and now tv and YouTube are big. Some market the dream.

    Sure. The dream of WHAT ? Treasure, of course. The very thing you started off saying to "let go of".

    But on the other hand: You do acknowledge that they're "just stories". So my hat's off to you for that.

    My ex wife ran off some time ago with my ex best friend, but she was No Treasure and I'm not searching. Lol (just a bad joke).

    Reminds me of the joke: A guy gets pulled over for speeding and the cop tells him he'll let him off if he has the best story of the day for why he was speeding. The guy says his wife ran off with a Highway Patrolman, and he thought the cop was bringing her back.
    He didn't get the ticket.

    that's all I look for, but after finding three of them in Mexico, I have yet to make a peso, Tayopa, Gloria Pan, and The lost Spaniard gold mine during the Juarez rev time, but it has been fun and rough. I spent months aboard a mule, sometimes not meeting another human for weeks, at times I found myself talking to my mule. Other times I found myself on top of a lonely mesa with a small fire, breathing the delicious pine scented air, which hinted of frost by morning , but I have a wonderful bank of memories, if not money. Would I do it again ? YOU BET !!! ask Tom

    Yup. You found a few caches in Mexico. Loved reading your stories. But you were also the first to acknowledge, in past posts, that the vast vast majority of yarns you heard, were ........ nothing but yarns, camp-fire legends, ghost-stories, etc... Right ?

    Cause they look at the bottom of the pit. It is on the island, not very deep, in undisturbed ground.

    true Tom, for every true story there are many made of wisps of remembered, or imagined stories.

    If Tom believes then he must have held the treasure in his hands!
    Tom doesn't give credit to ANYTHING claimed here, so I'm intrigued.

    Is there a link or book that describes the search for these three lost treasures that were found?
    All treasures found with permission on private property or on active mining claims.

    No. Just the ghost-story camp-fire legend caliber ones

    And you can ask Real of Tayopa: I've never held the couple of caches he's found, in my hands. Yet didn't think for a minute that "they didn't exist"
