    allen "hoss" blackman

    back in the 80's i walked into pro-mack prospecting shop in apache junction...sitting on the counter was a ray gun looking thing with 3 antenna's sticking out of it..i asked elaine what the hell it was...she said it was a long range locator called the thomas electroscope...fred came out and demonstrated it ....i was hooked and had to have it...so $900 later i was the new owner...i was the first idiot in the valley to own one so as soon as people found out i had one i was getting calls from people wanting me to scan their property...i got a call from a man that called himself hoss and he said he had a job for me...a couple had hired hoss to locate a mayo jar full of gold teeth that their father had brought back from ww2 (dont ask how he got them)...the father had passed away and they couldn't find the jar of teeth..hoss scanned their property and house with a metal detector and came up empty...so he brought me in and i gave the place a going over with the electroscope...the only thing i turned up was a jar of coins up high in the closet...then the wife mentioned something about her brother was the first one in the house after dad passed..hoss and i looked at each other and hung our heads..we both knew right then what happened to the jar full of gold teeth ...some of you guys on here probably knew hoss..he went on to become a pretty well known treasure hunter and metal detectorist
