Mornin all.

Dang Bart. Chasin X'S again...
Did money chains get divided? Like bust off a chunk for a transaction?

You get older , wheels might help lugging those slabs.
Or a tractors wheels.

I'm keeping an eye on spools of rope at auction this week to drag deer with my self built jumbo sized snatch block thingy if needed..Using the truck to skid them out of the swamp. Then up the ramp of the carrier on the hitch receiver.
Lifting them by hand is no longer easy.
A plastic sled is in the back of the truck too. Bottom should have hyfax runners added to reduce wear and friction. But it still pulls well. Despite a "few" scratches. If a plate was added upfront to reinforce tie/anchor points to tow , I'll bet it could haul 500 lbs of gold.
(Just in case you can't carry the next load by yourself...L.o.l..)
A sled can float too. But not with that much weight.

Im beside myself with treasure fever.... I have held and seen the gold, it comes from a close veteran friend, its a for real treasure like the Portuguese gold coin spot.....this is not a rumor....its for real. I just looked in the fantastic Tony jaggers book an bahamian treasure wrecks, and BOOM baby!!

Most times there's treasure and no story behind it.....this is different....this is a real piece of treasure that is probably linked to one of the biggest legends !! I think we have the first piece of treasure from a very famous sailing ship with 600,000 dollars in treasure aboard in 1680 !! Im sweating as I dig deeper !! I can't break free from the grips of this spanish treasure fever....the more treasure I find, and the more people who know I treasure hunt, the more people come to me with finds and stories !! This guy has not much historical knowledge of what this could be from, but he's still excited about the find itself !! I can't believe the opportunities still left in the bahamas......I myself know of 4 islands where there is 100%treasure laying around to be gotten. I asked about conditions of the beach....specifically about sand depth, and rock......it was described to me as...DUST OVER CRUST !! This is the only way he was able to eyeball this treasure. A lucky timing when the sand has thinned to reveal the treasure resting on the rock below the light sand.....if this is the case I will absolutely wipe this spot clean of all treasure with these conditions......a metaldetectorists dream scenario !!

A first discovery of treasure in a Virgin spot, with ideal conditions, thats never seen a detector, and may be the tip of a mega treasure !! Im so frigging fired up !!

Just a friendly reminder….
There’s a touch of destiny about you, blak Bart.

[Fast forward to the Smokies in the 1800s, and there were still people who preferred celebrating Christmas according to the old Julian calendar: January 6. This was called “Old Christmas Day.” Some holiday gluttons celebrated both old and new. In fact, the date of Old Christmas is still changing (from the 5th to the 7th) because that old calendar is still adding a day every few decades or so…]

You have a plethora of information on the Smokies.
Since the casino came in over at Cherokee, Newfound Gap should rightfully be called Losers Gap now.
