I am always up for a good treasure hunt.
Near my home town there was a botched stage robbery and the gunmen were shot up but got away with what was reported as $15000 in gold and silver from a strong box. They escaped somewhere back behind Peavine Mountain between there and Dog Valley California. We first heard about it in 8th grade Nevada history. The last gunman alive was found near Chilcoot and before he died mentioned petroglyphs, a redrock cliff face, and they had buried the box the box in an old stone mule pen. As kids we spent many a weekend looking for that box. We found what we thought was the petroglyphs. They actually made the news a few years back when a contractor was caught stealing them for landscaping. Obviously we never found the box.
But last year a buddies dad died and he found some old pictures of us up quail hunting near the Cali border when we were about 16. He says one of the pics is of our camp and he swears it looks like we setup in a square pen about 6 or 8 inches high. LOL wouldn't that have been something to be that clsoe and not have been looking anymore? Neither of us remember exactly where we were but have talked about going looking for fun one more time.
