    Re: Old Shaft Unearthed in Anza-Borrego Desert!!

    Hey Folks,

    Don't get around to TNet as much as I used to. Sorry.

    PLL, Haven't seen anything like that, except maybe Indian Head Peak just West of Borrego Springs.

    Since the last earthquake/cave-in, I haven't been back in there. Might give it a go by next fall.

    Re: Old Shaft Unearthed in Anza-Borrego Desert!!

    Mr Gollum,

    I keep seeing this San Felipe Creek/Carizzo Wash story about a buried cross. Have you seen the Lost Treasure Magazine April 2003 article where the author investigates the story and says "...we did find something very interesting about 100 yards north of San Filipe Creek. We found a hole in the ground that was more than seven feet deep and three to four feet wide." Have you heard anything about this? I guess if somene found something we may never know..

    Huff,

    I know the story very well. It supposedly happened in 1812.

    There are a couple of recoveries from that place that I know of. A small gold box with a gold and ruby rosary, and one gold bar found in a wash after a rain. It is possible, but unlikely that the cross was found.

    Hey MIKE !!!!
    AAAA What about me ?!?!?!? I wanna go....... Got $20 for gas

    LOL

    Guys,
    About the Lost treasure story let me say this. I just read a story in Gold Prospecting magazine about the Lost Ship of the Desert, and was NOTHING but a bunch of old rehashed stories. So be careful what you read...

    PLL
    Mike- if you could... PLEASE send me a email of the BLM map to goldenmirages@hotmail.com

    The BLM Map to what? San Sebastian Marsh?

    Just go to Southeast of Ocotillo Wells, to where San Felipe Creek runs into Carrizo Wash. It is now a protected wilderness area.

    That's a protected wilderness area?
    I've driven my truck over that area many a time plus people ride motorcycles all over it too. I never checked to see exactly where it was. I thought it was closer to the old stage trail farther south. I was down there with some offroaders about 6 weeks ago and drove south from the offroad park all the way to the 8. I have camped at the off road park probably 6 times in the last 12 months. Now that I know where to look... I'll have to take a look.

    Re: Old Shaft Unearthed in Anza-Borrego Desert!!

    I thought I would also mention that the restaurant right there called "my desert rose" burned down. I saw that the weekend of the 12Th this month when I went for breakfast. What a disappointment when I had no food for breakfast....it was a pretty good place for breakfast too.... the other place the blue inn or whatever its called kinda sucks... get there early or its packed and the cooks are slow... and you will wait forever even if you get food to go.

    These modern treasure hunters seem loathe to get too far from room service!

    "Hello Room Service? I'll take a BLT, some French Fries, and a map to that lost mine I'm looking for. Could you also ask the concierge to go out and if he finds it, to give me a call at the Jacuzzi"

    Yes, your Landy is doing fine.

    Re: Old Shaft Unearthed in Anza-Borrego Desert!!

    Good afternoon GULLUM: that picture is a self portrait taken on a two week trip into the Sierra Encantado of Baja looking for prehistoric living areas. I found them at about 4000 ft in a deep canyon with water,.and lived there alone for a week, complete with ghosts etc. around the camp fire at night.. I left from the San Felipe Road heading West.

    Cold drinks were a bit scarce, in fact just finding water in that country was almost impossible.. Many a cactus bit the dust.

    But it was fun ! You have to go someday my friend..

    Come on Jose,

    I call myself G-O-L-L-U-M not G-U-L-L-I-B-L-E!

    I know that picture of you was taken by a Bell Boy out back of the La Quinta Inn in Saltillo (or was it Zacatecas)!

    I would love to come down there. If I get the chance, I'll let you know I'm coming. I'll try and give you more than a two day notice.

    Re: Old Shaft Unearthed in Anza-Borrego Desert!!

    Hey CF,

    I don't think this is a mine. I see no evidence of mineralization. I may be wrong, but it was likely a natural cave that was opened up to use for storage.

    Problem is, this is at the Southern End of the San Andreas Fault. The entire mountain is fractured granite. The thing is constantly caving in. The spot where the shaft turns right and opens up is just out of reach, as the shaft right before there is collapsed to about 10 inches in diameter (too small for my RC Rock Crawler). I will leave it as is until I can get something to look around that turn and see something worth risking my life to go see.

    If you find the right article
    there is a story about that Judge being sighted
    in your area in the early 30's

    The man was mistaken to be Judge Crater
    the missing Judge

    However, it was not him

    The Man arrived in Julian ( where the Pie festivals are so awesome)

    He was driving a Packard

    Had a Map and or letter to
    a Hoard of Hidden treasure
    out in the Anza


    He employed a local prospector
    to help him locate what was in the documents he carried


    When folks got Too nosey
    about him
    He told the Prospector that
    he was the Missing Judge Crater

    He was not

    after awhile
    the prospector found the Monuments
    the Man had on his docs.

    The man paid the prospector off

    The Prospector returned to Julian
    for supplys

    and the Man with the Packard was never seen again

    Though his Packard was parked where he had left it
    Back in Julian.

    Call me Telepathic if you must

    But,,,,,,
    What you have come across
    is what was on that strangers Letters and map


    There at your site,

    I would not be the least suprized
    that his bones are beneath
    the stones


    Inside or at the death trap.


    The legend of a Fortune in Jesuit mined
    gold and silver
    is attached to that area.

    It is supposed to be hidden
    in a cave that fits your discription


    There will be an entrance into this

    at the top of the ridge, covered up with stones


    also, an alternate entrance
    around the other side
    opposite the one you have found.

    South, towards the Border
    is a cave with Winchester Rifles
    cached
    They were sold to the Mexicans for their revolution

    The rifles may still be there

    They are in a small peak that stands alone
    and can be seen south of Hiway 80


    I forget the name of the town this is near


    NOTE: Go to the top of the chiminy
    look close for an entrance
    beneath the boulder

    there will be smaller rocks stacked below the dirt
    around the base of that boulder

    try it.

    add this note: The story of Judge Crater imposter can be found
    in a Book about unsolved mysteries

    the story of the Jesuit treasure can be found
    in a book about lost California Treasures
    also, this cave was found before by a sheepherder
    he saw the treasure
    removed a small portion
    went into town
    bought burrows and
    picks/shovels and supplys.

    Was never seen again

    So, look about for bones in the drywash
    or expect to find the bones
    inside that cave

    google search
    ANZA BORREGO+JESUIT TREASURE
    See what comes up

    remix: try this: www.klaxo.net/hofc/other/rvj-lost-ship.htm-80k
    read about the lost Spanish ship supposedly beneath the Salton Sea
    and the other stories about treasure out there by kane springs
    and that Canyon with the funny name

    Rog'




    WTH, Treasure Minder! Is this TNet Haiku!?

    LOL

    Interesting read, however!
