    Lost Gold Ledge of the Chocolate Mountains...Found!!

    Greetings Everyone,

    This will be my first post in this forum. I have often come here through links while doing research but never signed up or posted. I am posting this because I believe I have found the lost gold ledge of the Chocolate Mountains. I am hoping to find someone on here who knows what I am speaking about, and I guess get some advice. I am not comfortable making much public about its location, but it is in an inaccesible (restricted) area. I am certain I have found it. I am also pretty sure I am not the first to have tracked it down. I am hoping to correspond with someone who knows where it is as well. Looking for advice or maybe to put together a small team for an expedition. Southern Cal, restricted area. Anyone in the know please send contact info..I will meet you halfway with proving I have the location. Please no fishing..only looking for a co-conspirator already in the know. Dont want to go out there alone.

    There are many stories and legends about lost ledges in the Chocolate Mountains. Most are just stories. So far you have found nothing. You have a theory based on information. That information may, or may not, contain verifiable facts.

    As to the area you believe this lost ledge being restricted, why is it restricted? Which agency or department controls the area? When I lived in sunny Southern California, decades ago, part of the Chocolate Mountains was a bombing range controlled, primarily, by the Navy. Some of that area is now controlled by BLM. I no longer monitor the land status of that area, so you will have to be much more specific.

    Time for more coffee.

    I am unwilling to discuss the location with anyone not already in the know. Sorry. Thanks for the reply.

    I was in the Marines back in the 70's. We would go out to the Chocolate Mtns and call in airstrikes. Bombs, rockets, and Napalm. This was/is a dangerous place to explore because of possible un-detonated ordinance. I'm sure that's why it's restricted. It may still be used for military practice from time to time. Be careful when you dig. If you hear jets overhead, LEAVE

    The time to leave an impact area is well before you hear the aircraft or artillery. Once you hear something, it is too late.

    I have been on the outer edges of that area and felt someone watching me and saw a military helicopter hovering in a canyon about a mile away watching me.
