    Mikelite, What a depressing, dedication, to deviant decisions, and desires you have developed. Sigh, now what do I have to insult that Dakotaite and his sheep with ? Inicidentally he once sent me a picture of the Queen of the herd -flock 0r ?? which I ill post A SOON as the desk top is up and running full bore again

    Which reminds me, keep fresh batteries in your phone so we can home in and at least recover a nice pair of hiking boots 'and' the keys to MY land Rover.

    Seriously hi mike, el Gulllum.

    To check mailbox 2/10 mile away today required a skating display on the snow covered ice using crutches, followed by an ungraceful ride on golf cart with left front wheel sticking causing some odd fishtailing. I would borrow Don Jose,s mule but he would not part with her.

    I want your book, today! Every footstep. All adventures! You will make Raiders of the Lost Ark look like a simple walk in the park. Often, from my Dad's plane I used to see a mountain in between the general area of Hermasillo/Obregon that seems (from above) to house a pretty significant cave. It always intrigued me. Have you seen it? Does Mt. Alamos house any caves? Have you seen the old miners tokens they used to have in Aduana? I saw one on eBay yesterday for the first time. Pretty cute. The Alamos silver minted coins are fetching a pretty good price too. I just finished reading The Almada's of Alamos (again) and The Hummingbirds daughter. So good. Now I just want Don Jose' de la Mancha's!!! I will bring a book I wrote to you in March. Now, do I get coffee

    G'd morning luv, will your hubby and you join Jim, Nancy, and me for our morning coffee? Yes I have seen the Quintera script money, once found a an olla full of them.. As for Alamos minted coins, i had quite a few, mostly 1888. can't find any right now, I have given most away to honest collectors who appreciate them and will take care of them, , in one case a crippled young boy. A handful were uncirculated.

    Yes, there are many caves in the Alamos region, some still contain effectively untouched cliff dwelling..

    As for mt Alamos, in Aduana there is a shaft that connects with a welll constructed tunnel that apparently exists somehwer south of Alamos. It passes under the Mt. The floor is covered with white sand - increased visibility ?? -- and did have a flow of fresh air, but lately the flow has diminished, prob due to a partial cave in somewhere.

    Alamos Mt is covered with old mines and prospect holes, but today only a handfull are still visible or 'known'. Want some stories on them ?

    Ah! I am on my tip-toes! I can't wait to hear more. Yes! My hubby, sis, and parents will ALL love coffee. As you know, my parents gave me their heart of adventure, like them. My hubby laughs at me everyday, finding me up to my neck in holes. Right now I am practicing my old privy skills. My girlfriends want to get a polished manicure, while I can't wait to keep getting my hands dirty. I love that you shared your coins. Good story. So cool. I took my detector into the arroyo behind the sugar mill section of the hacienda (awhile after hurricane Norbert came to town). I did not come across any silver but my kids and I collected so many old, awesome pieces of aged colored tile and pretty rocks, we could have built a dam bigger than the one in Mocuzari. Speaking of which, I recently heard a story from a local friend there, that at one time, there was a village, that had become flooded and covered for a century or two near there. Now, in thinking of the former drought, if it (the story) is true, what fun it would be to walk amongst the ruins there! Now, I do not want to veer off of your amazing Tayopa page, so should I send my thoughts to your TNet box instead? What fun it is to know you. I actually remember a few years ago, when my dad was telling me "Jodi, you would love my friend, and of the stories he holds and of the experiences he has had". And, lo and behold, I met you by accident, out of all the millions of people in the world, here on Treasurenet. Boy, that cracked him up. He loved it! Whoop-whoop!

    Hi Jodie luv, yes the towns do exist in the Macuzari, and the other at the smaller dam just to the south. HOWEVER, periodically they are uncovered, but with a few ft of extremely fine silt -- a very sloppy,muddy, proposition, Go look for Cromwell's ship in the bay just below Agiabampo. Course if you prefer a more modern ship try the Gernam submarine off of Guivalai.

    I presume that you know that when Villas' troops occupied Alamos, the mint took all of their coins and buried some of them in the arroyo or threw them down a well alongside of the Arroyo. they have never been recovered. Sooo there they wait for you to get yer grubby paws on them.

    Stories on alaoms I have, lots,.

    . Oh, my! Well, well, well. I have a very good idea where one of those wells might just be. I cannot wait to share some of these super stories in person. I don't care how dirty I got, btw, I would sludge and even swim through the mud, , around Macuzari. When I come this spring, I am going to head down the Rio Mayo. I have never done that, have you? I used to go to Chuchajaqui with Jamie quite a bit. What a wonder! What memories. Can't wait to make more. Muddy, muddy more. Laughing, too.

    Good Evening Don ,
    Grab yourself a coffee amigo , after extensive and exhaustive research , i finally understand your reluctance and evasiveness in producing that much sort after book of yours , and , i think, it may due to having already done the film in the 70`s

    Banana Slippers - for our Don Jose, afortunado propietario el Minas y Tesoro el Real de Tayopa does not need to be reminded of the Hollywood version; after all - whom did you think that movie was about?
