    I agree: Another subject other than the Stone Maps would be refreshing. How about stories by some of the posters about their experiences in the Superstition Mountains and more history about some of the people involved in the story of the LDM and the Mexican Miners etc. Remember the great stories that were posted on the old "Lostdutchman.net" Thread? Cordially, Gregory E. Davis.

    Good morning gentlemen: That was an interesting new thread. How about some new threads by the people on this net pertaining to their experiences in exploring the Superstition Mountains and looking for whatever and some of the things they have seen or found. There should also be some interesting stories about the older searchers looking for the treasures of the Superstition Mountains and surrounding areas. Cordially, Gregory E. Davis

    Howdy Dave,

    No need to be despondent, I'm sure some who have worn out a few pair of boots will chime in. I have only been in Arizona once, and that was when a tour bus took us from Vegas to the Sky Walk. Mr. Davis is hoping to hear from those who have left the main trails of the Superstitions. Could also be many don't want to share what they have found.

    I really enjoyed the story that you shared about the gold mine above second water. I had never heard about it, but then, there is a lot that I haven't heard about the Superstitions. Just last month, I found out about the mountain lion whose shadow appears on only two months of the year. Never would of known about Allen Blackman if you hadn't bought that long range gold finder.

    Keep em coming, I'm all ears. I know it's a little hard to show Mr. Davis something new, but you are doing good.

    I think the reason(s) that it's gotten real quiet in this forum is likely the same reason(s) that has pretty much killed off the other two forums: for every poster that tries to post about something serious and relevant to the LDM, there seems to be always a troll that posts something that makes no sense or says something to detract from the discussion, and this drives away or discourages the good posters from posting anything.

    I think the best way to address this is to take a more proactive approach in governing ourselves and the threads that are posted in this forum, by flagging posts and threads that are not relevant. And especially for us to stop responding to trolls and end up cluttering threads with useless bickering.

    A while ago there was a thread with an obscene photo of something that looked like a female member that was purported to be in the Superstitions (it wasn't). I flagged it and the mods removed it.

    I definitely get tired of weird or rude responses. I received that pic as a response to my posting. made me wonder why I should continue talking on this site. if I wanted to fight with rude people , I would go to the bar. not to mention the guy who sent it to me is a long time member and well known. maybe its new guys have to go thru hazing. I don't get it.

    I spent 17 days in the supers this feb. froze my butt off at night. put some miles on my boots, bush whacking the back country. no trails under me . scratched and bruised. but had a good time. found interesting things. I met with the feldmans. showed them my stone map theory. ron and sons said I have some of the best stone map info they have ever seen. unfortunately they are not stone map believers so they had no interest in proceeding with me. however they did ask for my contact info. I believe I have some good info to share . but do I want to show it here to all the trolls saying and sending weird stuff. probably not. but there are a few good fellas here so I keep coming back. at least to check in. lol

    deducer. I believe the maps are real maps. but I think they are not maps to the ldm. I think they are either Spanish or part of the Reavis forgeries when he was still trying to prove his land grab. but I think it is a real place for sure.

    Everybody fled.
    Happens every year about this time.
    I call it the migration.
    We talked one of our "winter visitor" neighbors into staying through the summer.
    That was about 10 years ago.


    They don't talk to us anymore.

    All,

    Well I hope people keep posting. I really like reading everyone's comments. I don't post much because I hate writing. I live in the valley and have backpacked into the superstition mountains many times looking for the mine. There is so much information about the LDM. I tend to steer away from arguing with folks about what information is true or false. I actually like to hear about all the different stories and versions. I personally believe there is a mine. I don't know which information too believe and try not to take any of it two seriously. I love looking for the mine and exploring the mountains.
