  1. It's time---East Texas subject matter

    Glad you mentioned Toledo Bend. It's a flat out crime what they did, burying towns and cemeteries underwater, not to mention moving families from their homes. I do know that before it was flooded, there was a spot downriver from Logansport where a ship had grounded. Some say it was Spanish, some...
  2. It's time---East Texas subject matter

    That sure sounds like a place that could have been used as a marker or site. 40 ft. waterfalls, like Landseig mentioned, are rare here, as you know. The tallest drop from the bank of my creek to the bottom is 20 ft. or so, and I always watch my footing around that part...lol But 40 ft. is...
  3. It's time---East Texas subject matter

    I have sat here for a few years, usually just reading about other leads and enjoying the stories, wondering when or if I would ever reveal what, I, myself, have kept under my hat since I was very young. I think it may be time to do so, because I'm noticing how fast the years are flying by, and...
  4. Need more advice from the TreasureNet think tank. Disappearing signal?

    I had this happen this past week with my Cibola, and would have dug further had it not been under tree roots. Whatever it was, it will remain there. I'm not going to uproot an entire one foot diameter tree. I had iron crossed out, so I'm not sure rust was an issue for the ghost signal. It was...
  5. 🥇 BANNER Appalachian Pirate Treasure!!! 8 Reale!!

    Congratulations!! I've seen some amazing things happen over the years in our hobby, and always take down notes of the best, and I'll be doing the same with this one. Sometimes one is just left without words. This is one of those times.
  6. 🔎 UNIDENTIFIED Does anybody know about the makers of old wood stoves?

    I don't know about those letters, but I found one too, and I hope you don't end up having the 'wood-stove curse' that I had. This thing had been broken into pieces and scattered (on-going mystery as to why) over an area of 100 acres, along with a parlor organ which I'm still finding reeds from...
  7. Why are digging tools so expensive?

    I've always just used a plain ol' sharpshooter shovel ever since I started back in the early 90's. But I do keep it real sharp with a file to get through roots. I hit ground last night though that was like hitting a brick, and may be the first time my old girl has ever been defeated, so it's...
  8. Easy to use budget machine

    My first thought is Compadre if you can even find one. Then maybe a Fisher F22 or F44 if it starts raining. Even the Ace 200 or 300. He sounds like he is like me. I came close to shooting a TV back in 2013, right before I quit watching TV altogether. Keep it simple. None of my machines look like...
  9. What would you do?

    I have a rule I go by. Sadly, I've never had to use it before. But it's simple. Don't say a single word to anyone. Not even if it's your own mother. I'm editing this to add a little something. Rule #2 is 'no partners'. Not while searching or digging. Hasn't anyone ever read the books? These...
  10. Tesoro followers

    I'm a member of the church, and rarely use anything else. The Cibola is my go-to for covering large areas and hunting woods. The Compadre is the greatest instrument ever used by man. I have not watched the Oak Island thing for what seems like years, but I can only assume the reason they have not...
  11. Do I need a 4th Tesoro?

    Same here with the Cibola. I've not been able to hunt much lately, but getting her ready tonight and going out for night hunting. I only supertune her on rare occasions because I'd need a backhoe to dig that deep.
  12. Say it ain't so!!!

    Same here in East Texas, it's been so long, and it seems like if we have one sunny day, the spraying starts and it starts all over again for another week :BangHead:
  13. So what is the worst smelling "poop" ?

    Human. The worst smelling excrement from the most revolting creature on the planet. I can't believe I'm spending time on this thread, but in an odd way, a very odd way, there may be things to learn. I wonder about dogs. Their sense of smell is, well, I read somewhere how many thousands of times...
  14. MONEY WELL" NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TEXAS

    Very interesting. I'm about 30 minutes from Nac and Appleby. I remember reading about this years ago, and for some reason or another it got put on the back-burner.
  15. Where did Gold come From?

    Nobody knows. Scientists can come up with theories. Everything they print as being fact goes against the very basis of their profession, unless they can 'scientifically' prove it as such. They cannot, nor can anyone prove any of what they present as fact. People that do this should return their...
  16. For those who can't afford a good detector

    This reminds me of the monopoly game inventor. He initially wanted to sell them as cheap as possible, so that every household would have a game to play. But, they were not selling. He asked the marketing team, why are they not selling? Their response: It's not priced high enough. They raised the...
  17. Bounty Hunter IV- Is barebones better?

    I have a BH IV for back-up and for places where I'm scared to take my Tesoro's. Same principle. After so many hours, especially around 100 hours on one, like Garrett has mentioned, it becomes natural, without a need for digital display. When I'm with my Tesoro's, I know pretty much 95% of the...
  18. Farm implement/tool

    They are sickle bar blades for sickle mower, for cutting hay. I still use one and have new blades right here in box...lol I've found many of our old ones over time, and just put them in a bucket to throw away.
  19. Old foundations over the years, what to look for

    So true! Roses, or any kind of decorative plants. I don't know their names (I was never big on learning different plants), but you know it when you see them in the woods, as they are out of place compared to every other living thing, especially in Spring when blooming starts. I'm always on the...
  20. Tesoro Part

    It may be a little hard to find a compartment door by itself, without buying a used machine. If you do buy a used machine for parts, you could use the door on both, as they are all the same (at least I think they are). Or, you could rig something to work as a door with a little tinkering. This...
