    Modern day treasure hunt!

    A house in my town came up for auction due to unpaid taxes. I bought it and have since learned the owner passed in '93 and its been vacant since. The kids just walked away. Everything's still in it. Furniture, clothing even food in the fridge! Well, we've been cleaning it out and so far I've found a key hidden in the freezer (to what i haven't figured out) and a small hidden room filled with antique toy trains from 30's 40's and 50's! This guy was a hider! Haven't even scratched the surface of stuff! Can't wait to hit the yard with my DFX! Hoping he was the buried cache type!
