    Iíll put in a call to Cardinal Sicola.

    He is very understanding.

    Poor fella will never be Pope, just because of close mindedness.

    No one likes the sound of
    ďPope SicolaĒ

    Iím sure that he will understand.

    THAT'S JUST THE WAY I WAS RAISED TO SEE THE WORLD.

    REALLY, I'M NOT SHOUTING. I HAVE A VISUAL PERCEPTION PROBLEM, AND TYPING IN ALL CAPS HELPS ME TO PROOF READ WHAT I TYPE. IF I EVER NEED TO DRAW ATTENTION TO ANYTHING I'LL MAKE IT BOLD SO IT STANDS OUT. I MEAN NO HARM. #/;0)~

    Self-explanatory.

    Go back.
    Do a 360 (pics)
    Treat it gently,...from close-ups and far.
    Check for directional pointing.
    Look for faint initials. (in relation to d.p.)
    Look for a faint V shaped gun-sight. Repeat, faint.

    (Repeat,...there should be 2 more 'motherhumpers'...Lol.) Joke, this one. Got carried away with the Rec-Room movie.

    No, just one. One more M/H-er.

    .....they're Underground. Under Ground. Under-the-Grouuund.

    Thanks for posting that Bob, it's always good to hear from others with similar experiences in the stones. I, personally, am not experienced with the miniature stuff. Hadn't even heard of it before I started seeing your posts on Tnet. So I wouldn't be presumptuous enough to even comment on it. But thank you for posting it.

    This week will be one of research for me as Dog had to fly out on business of his own this morning. It was decided that I shouldn't attempt to explore the area on my own in view of the danger of a lone female out there with all the Illegals passing through the mountains as they come across the border. So, I still have some more pics to get posted as soon as I can get them sorted, and will be tracking down some history of that area in particular (including oral histories if I can manage to find some) at the local courthouse and library. Also plan to meet with the president of the local Gem & Mineral Society and talk past mining history.

    So while I won't be on site this week, I should have some interesting history and research to share as the week progresses. Also, I would like to hear more about your thoughts and ideas regarding this site so far. That includes you, Steve, I would especially like to hear your theory you spoke of earlier on the thread. And Maverick, your info on the Templar Trail is fascinating, please do share your thoughts and research.

    I looked the thread over again and the only idea I had was the cat theme that one can follow in SW New Mexico. It might have originated from Mexican iconography. Interestingly, a mysterious man from Mexico City allegedly found treasure in the 1880s way north of where you may be and became known as "El Gato" when he returned home. Not much else to say other than the theme is prevalent in many forms in the vicinity of some alleged treasure sites.

    It's hard to comment on your quest as I don't know where you are for sure or what exactly your focus is, other than those rocks you posted photos of at the beginning. I assume you're in Luna County from the looks of the terrain and some of your statements, but other than the Cookes Range, I haven't spent much time in that part of the state. I have plenty of ideas about things north of Deming.

    That's interesting about the man from Mexico City, do you have any links you could steer me to in regards to that story? And how about a Jaguar, would that be in keeping with his 'Cat', 'El Gato', theme? Do you recall if he was Latino, or Indio? Love that stuff.

    And yes, Luna Co. for the most part at the moment. Would be interested in your knowledge of the Cookes, seeing as I have lost my intended guide for that portion of my journey. Would you be interested in maybe a day trip or two, just touching on the highlights of the Cookes Range? (Then I could bend your ear about those things north of Deming as well, lol).

    I got the info straight from a man who died in 1995. I've seen no other mention of El Gato whose given name was Baca. Viewed from the south, the entire top of Cookes Peak looks like a pouncing jaguar. Use your right brain. Look at this:

    I wrote an entire book about all things I know about north of Deming, with photos and GPS coordinates for everything. That'll get you to within spitting distance. It includes everything found in the Cookes Range. It was written for folks just like you who might be interested in picking up the chase. I've been done with said chase since 2001, although big-picture mysteries still abound. I'll send you a copy if you like - just provide me a snail mail address. If time and logistics is a problem, there may be another way to get you the info.

    I'll defer to DTTH as your Cookes Range guide when he returns, since Roger apparently showed him the ropes in there.

    My reputation precedes me. I realize I have been referred to as a mosquito with an alligator mouth, but I don't bite unless bitten first, lol.

    Be that as it may, I would be thrilled to have your book, poor substitute as it will be for your company. Snail mail may be a problem, will email details.

    That Jaguar is awesome. We have one on site, a snarling version. Mysteries abound, indeed.
