    Anyway, these guys are about to experience what Herny Hill called "the bad time". Go easy on the cast. It's the production company that should be taking the blows.
    No I'm not, the Forest Circus rode rough shod over me when I had a placer claim in Downieville CA. Between the FC and the environmentalist they made the miners the endangered species.

    BTW who is Herny Hill, or do you mean Henry Hill from Good Fellows?

    Ever wonder how long and how many people it took to haul 200 million in gold up to that little cave? Bet it was a chore before that ladder was built!

    Last night it was said that "This is 10x bigger than the dutchman," so the new number is $2 billion.

    Someone said there was a wire hanging down, maybe they used that and got tired of their hands hurting from pulling the wire with the gold hanging on it and built the ladder to make it easier!
    If I was President; I would take away welfare! I wouldn't make any bargains with foreign countries! I wouldn't take #@*& from any country! I would close the borders! I would get rid of taxes! I would make EVERYONE own at least 5 guns! I would ENFORCE Finders Keepers Law !!!!!!!!

    I don't think the show is going to find much at all, Its all about the exploits of the guys to make a show, sorry to burst the bubble of you believers of the legend. Its just not going to be in this show! what is interesting though is the hints of signs and topography the guys see and don't tell here, saving for later maybe? Got to make the series though! Its still makes good TV, I would have done it given the chance. LOL! Beautiful country there even though its hot. Its all in the thrill of the hunt-that's why we are all on T-Net and the guys on the show are just like all of us..Maybe after the show we'll find out what they really learned on their fact finding adventure!!!!

    OK no one climbs a 100yr old + latter that fast. Unless he climb it many times before. They kept yelling for him to slow down. No way was the latter there for 100's of years and if it was the cross would of been known. I will bet the cross is gone when they return. I think everything found on the show was faked . Yet I like the show.

    I just finished watching the season finale. The entire show is scripted and staged. I have hiked, backpacked and canyoneered the Superstition Mountains for more than 20 years and know that area very well. I'm out there 20 or 30 times a year. There are no Indians, no ghosts, and nobody is following people looking for the gold. The producers are trying to create the drama to get people to watch and it works. There are definitely Indian artifacts, petroglyphs and ruins throughout the Superstitions. It's not unusual to see them.

    In the finale, the canyon they were in is called Crucifix Canyon, which empties into Canyon Lake (Salt River is dammed up). I've been down Crucifix a number of times. It's named after the natural crucifix high upon Black Cross Butte. I've also been in Hose Canyon which is a technical canyon requiring 3 rappels to get through, and it empties into Crucifix Canyon. People have been up in the bat cave although I have not. I don't know if there is a cross in there but I would doubt it.

    I know that they hype the show up with as much drama as they can, but these 5 treasure hunters are idiots who have never spent a day hiking in the Supes. Nobody goes out wearing and carrying all of that gear. Desert hiking is completely different than anything else and it requires the right gear and know-how. These bozos don't have a clue.

    They aren't bozos - they are just sell-outs to the production company because they were unsuccessful in their ventures in the Superstition Mountains. Have to make all the money they spend on dousing rods and metal detectors back somehow!

    I am new here as well, but you will find many members that will defend the actions of their buddies (some of the actors are members here).

    I agree with your post, wholeheartedly

    I'm Wayne's hiking and research partner, have been for more than 10 years. I can assure you that he is no bozo sell out. There have been many finds, and advances in the research of the LDM, that were never made public. Wayne knows those mountains well, and has literally been hiking them since he was knee high and pooping green. I'd be careful to judge someone based on the appearance of this show only.

    If that so called ladder is so old where did the blue paint on it come from. It also looks like its secured by straps. Also this show had to be filmed in a single day. They all wear the same clothes. The retired cop and his old buddy are annoying as all get out. This show is great for the scenery and that's about it.

    Did you watch the show?

    Were you entertained?

    Then it was a success, if not oh well.

    That is what the basis of the show is "Legends" of the Superstitions. Some good entertainment for the masses.

    As for the cast, I would back off on the criticism, most of what was put together was by the producers for entertainment and I can assure you that if you met any of the cast in person you would find they are nothing like how they are portrayed.

    After all, if you were looking for Gold in the Superstitions would you want your secrets broadcast on T.V.

    Well, I don't know, but the first 2 episodes I watched I thought they were not carrying enough gear, but hey, they were only going out for a short spin before going back home to sleep! Little school book back packs is what I saw, don't know about the rest of the episodes!

    When I go out anywhere, (I been in jungles, I been in deserts, and I been in mountains both wooded and rugged), I ALWAYS carry my old Army LARGE RUCKSACK that I carry all my equipment in, plenty of drinking water, (usually 4 gallons), water purification system, fist aid kit, sleeping bag, tent, at least 4-5 MRE's, (2) 50ft rappelling ropes, climbing and rappelling equipment, carabiners, etc., (not the cheesy store bought brand rope but Army rope), fire starter kit to include steel wool and 9v batteries, 3 flashlights, extra clothes, 2 firearms, (1 pistol and 1 high powered rifle with 100 rounds of ammunition for each), gold pans, picks, hammers, and axes, amongst other stuff I may put in there that comes to mind, (that I hadn't mentioned), on what I may need. My back pack usually starts out at 80lbs with everything I carry and I do it with no problem. Now if I made camp and venture out for a few hours, I will have about 50lbs of gear with me even when just going out prospecting!

    I don't know about your first post you made here, but I have opinions about the show like everyone else has about the production of how it went down, but I can probably guess these guys on the show are no dummies just the producers and directors are!

    Ouch. I have some opinions about the show and all, but as a few others have pointed out, it's a tv show - it's mainly for entertainment.

    I'm brand new to this site but have lurked for a while. I didn't come here for this topic - but I'd seen it mentioned that there was a show, so I started watching. Anyway, just from lurking, it's pretty well established that a few of the cast members are active members of this site and participate regularly in discussions. That said, it kinda sucks to see people posting mean comments about the cast members. What we see on tv is a fraction of what they're probably like in person, and they aren't 'real' actors - so we're not going to see Oscar-worthy performances.

    Yeah, being on tv means people willl probably form opinions that aren't favorable of you, but considering how active these guys are on this forum, I'm sure they see these opinions, and it probably stings a bit. It's easy to sit in front of a tv and make assumptions about these people, but keep in mind that they are still people.

    Just my two cents on that subject.

    On another note, I have also wondered about the unchanging wardrobes, and Frank's cigar, etc LOL. Another thing is the helicopters. I don't know anything about tv production, and perhaps there are other ways, but my thoughts are that they had to get those aerial shots somehow!
