    • WTG Gary.... I am off to a spot we have not been to since all the rain this weekend with fingers crossed.
    • So I am getting ready for work and into the room comes Tammy in cargo pants and detecting gear in hand  I gotta go to work I says, have a good day she says and off her and Bruno go on the buggy gold hunting. 
    • Well i think you have a good idea here. I have been away on vacation, but excited to get on board with this treasure hunt, just give me some time to make a guess. Go New Mexico land of lost treasure!
    • Here is a link back to the thread where I originally discussed the idea. There may be some info there to consider. If you have a guess please post the coordinates and a reason you think the loot wound up there. Only guesses posted on this thread count.
    • Bill, I decided that an actual geocache would be difficult for a lot of forum members. If they are going to travel somewhere it is going to be for gold and meteorites. That is why we decided to do a virtual hunt. Anyone that wants to read a couple of historical accounts and a couple Nuggetshooter threads has the info they need to solve the riddle. Guesses and discussion about the treasure should be posted here. The challenge for this group will be working together. In order to find the location guys are going to have to discuss it and take some guesses to narrow it down. Otherwise it is shooting in the dark. And unless there is discussion about it I won't give many more clues. So if guys are willing to work together toward a common goal someone is bound to get it right. Otherwise I am afraid it will be very difficult to guess the location of the loot... You would just have to get lucky with a wild guess. We will see how it goes. I would love to do a real hunt for a prize or another virtual hunt if this is something that members enjoy. And I think once the personalities calm down a bit that members will be more willing to participate. It certainly could be a fun thing for a lot of guys if they felt more comfortable posting and kicking around ideas.  Besides, the gold is not too shabby. It is the best shot at finding a nugget for a lot of guys that post on here. And for a whole lot less time and effort than they would have spent finding one in the field.
