  1. Another Dutch Hunter Crosses Over

    Hey BB, Yeah, Dave was from AZ, but I don't think he was any relation. Mike
  2. Another Dutch Hunter Crosses Over

    Of all the people I have met in the Dutch Hunting Community, he was one of the very few I trusted anything out of his mouth to be the truth. Mike
  3. Another Dutch Hunter Crosses Over

    I just found out in the last two days that two old friends have died. One was "Pegleglooker". His name was John Grasson. He wasn't a Dutch Hunter, but he was known from his searching for the Spanish Ship in the Salton Sea Area. The second was a very good friend named Dave Cook. He was...
  4. Old Shaft Unearthed in Anza-Borrego Desert!!

    No gold up where? Sheeps? Nothing but gold(sulphides)/copper there. Almost the entire range was under claim at several points in history. It just takes a crap-ton of digging brass, lead, bottle caps, pull tabs, and old cans. Occasionally a modern coin or two. Once even found someone's house key...
  5. Old Shaft Unearthed in Anza-Borrego Desert!!

    Bridle Bells, Buttons, and pieces of riding tack can be found with a metal detector. We did. There is an old trail along the South Side of that same canyon. Its monumented. There is a square sighting hole (with a pointer inside) that shows a once hidden cave/shaft/prospect. From there, every...
  6. Victorio Peak Documents, Symbols and Artifacts

    Hey Kentuck, Yeah, I didn't talk about it, but when Capt Fiege and AFC Berlette found the cave under VP, they were with a Civilian Dispatcher named "SHRIVER". I wondered whether he was a relative of the Kennedy's. Mike
  7. The Pearl Ship

    HAHAHA Margot wondered why you didn't let her know how you liked the book. She doesn't sell to many people (not a money thing). Since most of the monuments are sacred to the Seri, or play important roles in their history, she doesn't like to advertise locations. Also, many people have blended...
  8. Old Shaft Unearthed in Anza-Borrego Desert!!

    GT, If you haven't found traces of Spaniards, then you haven't been looking very hard. LOL There were several Spanish/Mexican Mines, but they have all been reopened and worked first in the 1880s, then again during the Depression in the 1930s. Take Highway 62 out of 29 Stumps to Amboy Road. Head...
  9. "Challenge For Superstition Gold"

    Hey Doc, The 3 Buttes you are referring to are Borrego Mountain East Butte, Borrego Mountain, and Borrego Mountain West Butte. A crap-ton of people (myself included) have been all over those three peaks as they are easily accessible. If you go to the NorthWest edge of West Peak, you can find a...
  10. Montezumas Treasuire: An Essay

    Marius, Sorry, but we have to part ways here. LOL Yes, that is a portion of the Codex Boturini, but your translation is COMPLETELY wrong. First: What you have noted as a "Double-Edged Dagger" is actually the year "1 Flint" in the Aztec Calendar: "One Flint" is the first year of the...
  11. Cursum Perficio Map or the Abe Reid Map

    Ka-knickers and Buzzard, Many years ago, I translated both the Latin Heart and Cursum Perficio. Ocean Child email doesn't work. Email me, please. It is either a fake, or it describes landmarks. Only two options to me. Buzzard, When I get home from work, I'll shoot you an email about this. It...
  12. Montezumas Treasuire: An Essay

    That "shaft" is the Mammoth Mine. The Feldman's own it now. Mike
  13. P. C. Bicknell -- "A Rock Cabin in a Cave"

    I thought someone had answered your question, but I guess not. It refers to the "Four Peaks Wilderness Area". The Four Peaks is/was a well known landmark. Just search for "Four Peaks Wilderness" on Google Earth. Its a ways to the North of the Superstitions. The clue says that when you are at...
  14. P. C. Bicknell -- "A Rock Cabin in a Cave"

    LOL Its not out-of-staters that are the problem Its people that think they know everything (but don't), and tear up things they don't understand trying to find something that might not even exist! Mike
  15. "Challenge For Superstition Gold"

    BB, The Apache/NDeh never destroyed anything like that. Native Americans don't even like to talk about older civilizations, much less do something to anger those long dead people. Same reason Navajo/Utes don't talk about Wendigo or Skinwalkers. If they talk about them, they believe it will...
