Me and Etrac- Ohio went to two spots and I only found the one token and the Jar everything else we found was junk. We will not go back !! to either spot. On the spot with the bottles and jar there was a lot of cut stones there That looked like the 1800 type

A friend and I once got dropped off out in the Nevada desert to look for relics by a friend that was supposed to come back and pick us up a few hours later. 96 degree sunny day. After about 5 hours we were both out of water and started hiking the 15+ miles back towards the nearest ranch house. About 2 hours later I was feeling dehydration effects and not doing well.
My friend was about 20 yards away and yelled out "check this out!" and held up a full bottle of Corona. He then reeled back to throw it and I screamed "NOOOO!"
He asked if I was actually going to drink it.
Oh, hell yes!
It had some stuff in it swirling around, but, whatever.
That old, hot beer was one of the best I've ever had, and probably saved our asses.
We came across the 'pick up' friend about an hour later, high centered on a sand dune.

WOW WHAT a reply :) Thank you so much for posting :) I am also glad you drank the Corona :) I am also glad you got back and made it ;) I don't think most people realize how dangerous it is to go out there prospecting !!! Have you had any other dangerous incidents even like dangerous critters (Snakes , Mountain Lions or such ?)

I've had many encounters with rattlers, badgers, cougars and bears. Many close calls. People tend to drive through Nevada and think there's nothing but sagebrush out there. It's actually pretty populated with critters.
