Hey TT It sounds like you would be well provisioned for a trip. That is some rugged but beautiful country you have there. Do I have my wires crossed or wasn't there a legend about a nun that was sealed in one of the Tayopa shafts or is that another show ? Are you anywhere near parrot hill ? There is a walled lot there that I am curious about. Not a treasure deal just real estate.

What cost $2,000,000 in 1800 would cost $21,686,051.47 in 2005 according to the inflation calculator. Add some for historical value and we are probably looking at $50,000,000 or so

Hi djui, rmember it was left there in "1630-40". To get a true perspective on value for those times, remember an average worker earned around .50 cents a month - if he was lucky and wasn't a slave..

Frankly I haven't heard about that Bill, Interesting.

Unfortunately there are a hundred Parrot hills, Called that from configuration or because of the yearly gathering of of Parrots by the thousands for propagation purposes. You have never hear such noise sheehs. .Even my Mule couldn't take it.

Any more details?

Hi bill, here is the atual location. Let me know if you want a report. It was built into the side of the Hill "Los Pericos". mostly rock area.

On Picture on the net---

#1 Looking SE towards the Cerro de Los Pericos.

#2 Looking towards the NW. Alamos center is approx 200 - 300 meters.

#3 Looking to the SE, side of the Cerro de los Pericos.

#4 Same.

#5 Looking towards the NW Alamos center lies on the left.

NO night life in Aamos except for noisy bars and the internet heheheh..

Map is orientated to the North.

Hey thanks again TT are they asking too much for a rock hill ? I was thinking of a earth contact type of structure. I can see that I would have to take a look to see if it would be suitable. Having a zillion parrots for neighbors may not be the best choice.

I appreciate you checking it for me

Hello my friends: Tayopa is still a go. My recent sale of the Escondida will easily give me enough money to finally get the last of the permits and finish up the job. A little more patience and we will finish up the saga of TAYOPA".

I may be taking that group back up to Tayopa to finish up the search for the metal door. My Friend that had the heart attack had once found it. He had tried to break the lock with a rock but was unable to do so.

When he went back later, he could not find it again.

Headquarters at Tayopa

I will post more pictures again.

Welcome Cat Jockey and pleased to E-meet you; hope that at some point in future we can meet in person, nothing like sharing hot coffees (or hot cocoas, or hot teas, depending on personal preferences) around the campfire. Maybe you can help us talk Don Jose' aka Real de Tayopa, aka Tropical Tramp, aka la Gringo de la Mancha**, into setting up some kind of Tayopa hunters rendezvous some day? The Dutch hunters have been doing this for some years, and (just my opinion) I think it would be a great thing for those of us who look for Tayopa, even if only in the pages of old books. There is a somewhat similar meet for the Pegleg Smith crowd too, but has a slightly different approach and have never attended it.

I don't know if our amigo Lamar is still following this thread in particular, may have to send him a PM if you wish to get his response.

Please do continue, thank you for joining us and I look forward to the posts to come. :read2: :thumbsup:
Oroblanco, your friendly resident heretic

:coffee2: :coffee: :coffee2:


***per la Mancha moniker, this is some indication of the mean side of ye afortunado dueno de la minas y Real de Tayopa; he has no sympathies even for an innocent and defenseless windmill! :o :o :o ;D***

Welcome Cat Jockey, anyone who is a friend of RDT is a friend of ..... well...RDT :laughing7:
Dont be fooled by RDT though, he will steal your treasure map and your socks while you sleep, He has strange thing for sock coffee.
I look forward to your posts, even though I am alittle confused at this point as you said LUE, perhaps you will tie it in to Tayopa ?
Don't worry to much about Lamaar, God made me an athiest, so who is Lamaar to question his wisdom ? :laughing7:

:coffee2: :coffee2: << dont drink the one on the left it is RDTs and was made with a sock

Hmm, just struck me; we are an unusual group, no? Among our number are found a self professed saint (RDT) a possible evangelist, a heretic and an atheist. Should our Tayopa debate falter, what ever shall we find to talk about? :dontknow: :icon_scratch: :laughing9: :laughing7: :tongue3: <heh heh>
