I don't have the patience to read another 10 pages about this baloney tale, but here's the bottom line. This guy has admitted that he just wants a book deal, TV show or a movie made about his tall tale. That's how he thinks he's going to get rich off his story.

His story gets taller ever year. First it was a couple tons of gold, then it was 9 tons of gold AND tons of silver! He also added some wild story about an Indian skeleton in a cave. Unfortunately, none of his crew carries any device capable of taking a photo, so no pics of the skeleton or anything else exists. All he has are grainy photos of the FBI digging up his imaginary treasure! He has no proof of any gold ever being there, no proof that the FBI stole this non-existent treasure, no photos, nothing at all. He just keeps posting updates every few months to keep this BS story going. Just let it go.

No good treasure legend would be complete, unless it had a skeleton thrown in.

Knew it would make your day , but pretty interesting Found it extra interesting since Jessie James and his gang spent some time about a hour from here in Missouri . They had a cave as a hide out which is open to tours / https://www.americascave.com/history/ there is a statue in front of the cave and also a museum to Jessie James near by. In front of cave https://www.americascave.com/wp-cont...jessejames.jpg Jessie James did get around southern Missouri and many wonder if he stashed any treasure while on the run from the law lots of stories https://terrain-mag.com/jesse-james-...60f75c22725f1b another article on him / https://edmondlifeandleisure.com/kni...e5d1a7f90e9f71

This thread started out to be about Dent's Run.

How did it become a "catch all" for every lost treasure fantasy ever made up?!?

Ah yes. Of course. "New technology will pinpoint Money Pit.... "

Here we go. See ? It's not that there's no "money pit". It's not that there's not a fabulous treasure. It was only because, all this time : We weren't using some other sort of new technology. But Rest assured : A money pit is there.

Ok, let's start a bet here : How many think that THIS time, they'll find fabulous treasure ?

Haha, yes. If there is EVER a time & place where God should remove free-will of man (choice to do evil), then THIS is that time & place. Yes God: please remove the producer's free will ability. And stop him from doing another season !
