In my years I have discovered one thing 99.9999999999% of treasure stories are false and of those that are true 99.99% have been found. But I would sure love to find that .001% of real ones still out there.

My dream is to hunt shipwrecks because that is where the real treasure lies but I'm a few million dollars short of that dream right now.

If nothing else..the stories are fun to read and dream of finding a Cache like that.

Like the lottery..you know your not gonna hit it..but sometimes its fun to dream about what you'd do if you did.

Shameless self-promotion: Some other posts I've done on the Doane Gang over the years.
