    No problem there, Jefe, am staying north of the border, just close at times. New Mexico gun laws are very lenient. Regardless, I am always vigilant, and will be more so after your reply. I've been mistaken for a militant several times already , I don't anticipate problems but just needed reassurance that I was not simply being paranoid. Gracias, mi Jefe.

    Don Jose, where did you post the map that Not Peralta showed you? The one that shows a heart with horns as one of the almacenes. I was wondering if it has a date? Gracias.

    I DON'T REMEMBER, BUT i WILL LOOK IT UP FOR YOU. tHAT MAP HAS DATA THAT IS TRUE, IT IS NOT A FAKE IN THE SENSE THAT IT IS NOT IMAGINARY.IT SHOWS THAT MANY OF THE DORE BARS CAME FROM THE TAYOPA COMPLEX, CONTRIBUTED MANY OF THE DORE 'BARS AT VICTORIA PEAK AND THOSE OF THE CABALLO MT DEPOSITORIES. THE MAP COULD BE CONSIDERED TRUE

    Gracias Mi General,

    It shows two dates, 1646 to 1861. Seems to me that since 1646 they were hauling riches out under the radar at least until 1861? From what I have found, the PSM's were buried in April of 1717. So it is possible that Church treasure was taken to the Superstitions, and later taken out.

    I do not know how much dysfunctional south of Border these days. For me maybe mexico seems a lost safer than the place I grew up in.

    Bruce Alexander an old mate of mine and few business owners got together take action when the police force under funded and poorly operated. So a group of business people made their own volunteer police force.Here is some clips on my old stomping ground Rabual . Before independence it was rough but still relatively save these days it has its moments



    Here is clip showing an insight into how rough life is in New Guinea. However in among the poverty. 80% live below the poverty line. In among the rascal and bandits. There are people doing extraordinary thing in such trying conditions.



    I tell if you live and work in new guinea you live and work anywhere on the globe.

    It was certainly a tough training ground and character building. When the trio went to South America it seemed like a piece of cake. Or perhaps we was so accustomed to dysfunctional world about them it was the norm.

    One thing your habits to others seem curious especially when moving back to more civilized places in the world. When I hear people in western countries complaining they have it tough...There was part of me wanting grab them by the stuff of their neck and show them how touch life is....

    But in among all the poverty and squalor there are some people who shine.....

    I should empathize Lae ( pothole city ) and Port Moresby are two worst places in PNG. although Rabaul after the eruption has never been the same. But these days it has its moments. Of all Madang is by far the MOST safest part of PNG. Most expats live in Madang.

    When Australian prospectors in 1930 first pushed into the mountains of New Guinea three intrepid brothers Micheal, Danial James Lae discovered the valleys in highlands occupied by over one million people. The world knew nothing about. They had never seen white men and thought the white men was ghosts. The brothers encountered tribal natives that was in a constant tribal war with their neighbors who was completely unaware the outside word existed. While the Australia government was shocked to learn the interior of the then unexplored heart of New Guinea was so populated.



    It was one of great unexplored places on earth. Even today there are places white men have not fully explored. Growing up there it seemed normal.

    However for those willing to push themselves beyond their own comfort zones. There is no place like it.

    And some times living life on the edge can have rewards.

    Hello Don

    My pleasure sharing these links.

    Many years ago when my mother and father who was a district police commissioner in charge of sorting out tribal conflicts. He and many others begged the Australian Government to post pone Papa new guinea independence. If fell on death ears as the Australia government saw the country as liability. Reality the country needed to evolve more to become a fully functioning independent country. As soon as independence came the rot came in because tribal bonds are more stronger than any concept of being country. You have 800 plus tribal groups with very little in common culturally or language. So in effect government became a cartel of most dominate tribal group with nepotism and corruption.

    There are some tribes today do not even understand they are a country as they have no concept of it. Only tribal laws. 90% of GDP is either from mining and rubber plantations. The government can barely afford to pay its bureaucracy.

    There are very few economic trickle down wealth from mining operations in the country. Except for those employed. Roads hospital infrastructure does as you can virtually does not exist. there are 4900 police officers to police 6 million people. Half the time the police officers do not get paid. 90% of the population is living subsistence agriculture. Tribal wars over land and women are common.

    We used to as mining exploration teams. use to employ locals for clearing jungle where ever the geologists wanted us to drill. I coordinated a team of native fixers to negotiate access and employ locals.

    One such place high in the mountains we hired 20 men to work for us on one drilling project. Well for the 20 picked there was another 100-200 unhappy and jealous locals. In the course of the work I noticed different workers turning up to our site each morning? Out of 20 I personally picked there was only 6 of them left. The 14 others was strangers?

    It turns out the others that I had not picked was so jealous and enraged that they had not given a job. Had murdered or chased off the ones that I had picked. There was murderous blood bath going on in the hills around us while we obliviously cleared the drilling site.

    It was devastating to realize just by picking out a few for a job I had inadvertently signed their death warrant. After that I changed tact on how I recruited. locals we had from then on revolving workforce from day to day. Simple decision in our white mans world might seem trivial but in the native world can be devastating.

    my apologies Don Jose for deviation .

    Getting back to your comments. I suspect the fortune you alluded is one and the same offered to Juan Vicente de Güemes Padilla Horcasitas y Aguayo, 2nd Count of Revillagigedo. There after referred to as the Revillagigedo Fund.

    In Texas there was story of mineral wealth being exported through Texas coast. Perhaps along the route you mentioned?

    There is a interesting newspaper article you might find interesting. I have try to remember where to find it.

    Hello Don Jose esteemed friend.

    Okay thanks for the thumbs up. I recall your story about Mary kai kai? Well in New Guinea there is several areas and tribes still prone to the odd snack on human flesh. I mentioned before In a remote valley of eastern Papua they as sign of respect eat dead relatives. In west Papua they hunt and kill people they believe are witches.

    Here is clip on the cannibals of West Papa.
