    And... If you believe the stories, most of what's been found has never been written of. If you believe the stories of what's been stashed, you kind of have to believe the stories of finding the evidence of caches being removed. Not stories of the actually finding, but accounts of those who got there too late. Like ranchers giving people permission to hunt (this is from way back) and eventually going to look around themselves and finding something like a hole with clear marks of a banded strong box or remnants of money bags. Or folks known to have rented or bought the place said to have a rich cache somewhere on it who mysteriously sprouted great wealth. If you found seven cargas of Spanish silver or ten-thousand dollars face value of 19th century gold coin, would you tell the world?

    Re: Texas has more buried Treasure than any other state

    Ditto on the work thing! I guess I ought to buy a lotto ticket once in awhile..

    On the growing up thing, well, it took me 30 years to realize that I wasn't interested in growing up! If I would've just done what I wanted to do instead of what others wanted me to do..we'd all be a lot happier! But I digress. Let's go find some stuff!
    My two best detectors are now 49 years old, need a little help sometimes, but haven't let me down!

    There are still caches out there, partners lighten the load! Research, equipment, and funds shared means FINDS shared!

    I'm getting a lot of that "oh, grow up" right now.

    All I wanna find is one crate of gold bars--I ain't greedy.

    Re: Texas has more buried Treasure than any other state

    I am in the process of trying to pin down a treasure legend in Big Spring, Tx. right now. According to my grandfather cowboys used to pan for gold in Wildhorse Canyon. He said they averaged about $30 dollars a week. Although the precise location wasn't revealed in the telling, there are only two places in the canyon where the limestone caprock has been broken by PreCambrian rock upheavals. One at the headwaters of the Big Wildhorse and one at the headwaters of the Little Wildhorse Creek. I'm going to both locations this month with metal detector and shovel. According to the story, no one ever found out where this "panned" gold originated from. At the very least, i will dig down to bedrock at these locations and find out if anything is there. I'll let you know what i find. Or don't find.

    I am grinding my teeth so hard on reading this Steve I think I cracked a molar. I would give my eyeteeth to go with you, I mean it really sounds like fun even if nuthin is found. I liked it so much that immediately opened another window to find out how close Big Spring was. Brother, it ain't!! Of course Texas is huge and I live in the East while you live in the open West. I betcha it is more than 10 hours between us.
    I really hope you got lucky with you adventure if you went this weekend. Post so we can know!!

    Re: Texas has more buried Treasure than any other state

    Monday 16th May. I bought all my supplies today and will start packing and loading tommorrow AM. Will arrive on Little Wildhorse Creek on Wednesday afternoon after interviewing an elderly land owner in the morning who I've already contacted by phone. Seems across the highway and down a ravine in Little Wildhorse there are three stone walls measuring about 3ft. high and forming a triangular structure 12 ft. across at the back and 40 ft. long. He says it was a cellar for a house that was washed away in a flood when he was a young man.

    Tommorrow i will ask him if he personally witnessed the "entire" structure go up from the ground up? My reason is, the wall closest to the Creek appears to me to be made from heavier darker colored stones. Some weighing in excess of 200 lbs. Could the ravine itself (forming two sides of a perfect triangle) have been an earlier excavation? I think it's possible whoever built a house in such a precarious place, may have done so because he was taking advantage of a pre-existing structure. The same geography that led to the house being swept away, also precludes this original wall from being a defensive position. Shooting down into the ravine at the wall from ontop the caprock would have been like shooting "fish in a barrel". Not a good place to be trapped in. 50-75 yrds from the Creek, below the caprock in a ravine, surrounded by Comanche Indians.

    Which brings me to another theory. The original wall and the walls of the excavated ravine forming a tringle were deliberately hidden below the cap rock. It could well be an obvious treasure sign. Something as simple as an arrow marker pointing towards the head of the Little Wildhorse Creek less than 2 miles away. Not my theory, one put forth by a relative who served in IRAQ. He says a triangle on the ground is used in linear navigation by soldiers and has been used as such for hundreds of years. Spaniards ? I hope so, because the Conquestadores were no fools. They wouldn't have wasted their time creating such a marker over a few particles of gold found in a creek somewhere.

    Stop it , stop it!!!!!!!!!! I am ranting and raving around my office about wanted to take off to west Texas!! My co workers think I have gone insane, and they may be right. The prospects for digging gold ore were enough! Now we have treasure lore and Spaniards involved?? My BP is gonna be outa site. I betcha my wife kicks me outta bed because I am going to mumble about this all night!! I am leavin the office to get some work done and RELAX!! Good luck and then some bud!!

    Re: Texas has more buried Treasure than any other state

    The New Catfish said he would let us know what he found at Wildhorse Creek.
    If that was 120 days ago we still want him to live up to his promise. Many claims
    are made about panning gold in Texas even though geologically it is unlikely.
