I once lived on that beach and in that immediate area (Eastwind St. just south of the Venice pier).
I would also be crying today if I had missed that cache while MD-ing that beach for years.
Great prank !! Kudos !!

Cute prank, but it could have had dangerous results. Did you see how fast people bum rushed that trunk trying to get a piece. I guess they were lucky it wasn't the real thing, or several people would have been hurt.

The gal with the walkie- talkie trying to shut it down looked real to me and it was real for all the chanting youngsters. I wonder was seeds were planted for future treasure hunters, but inevidably someone is always trying to spoil the fun!
