Billy Bobs is dumb, he and I use hand signals and eye contact to communicate. Billy is far better, than I at covering ground but age has climbed on his back for the ride. Sometimes I worry what will happen if I go down. I mean if I have a heart attack , break a leg, be eaten by a bear. Of late my partner stays in the car; mostly the law forces him to stay at the car. I have a deep cell battery that drives two fans keeping my car/camper cool. It is for Bill that these new laws exists. Take up any disagreements with Bobs.
Do walk for less than a mile in radius from the car.
Do take your partner leave no one in the car.
Do dress in layers and appropriately for the weather. Mountains have year around weather most days.
know each animal you may encounter.
Do keep your hands and face out of holes. Check before you leap! I remember arriving at a church camp where the smartest kid in school (160 IQ) had put on a swim suit in the bus so he could be first in the lake. He leaped before he looked and broke his neck.
Do carry bear spray. Make lots of noise and look for signs.
Do Scare cats, back up slowly and stay big for bears, put two good size sticks on your head like antlers for moose.
Do stay 300 yards from bears, moose, elk, deer, bisson, and anything that can bite.
Do stay away from animals in the wild; especially young animals.
Do come back to the car and check in every two hours.
Do carry a gun if you have received training. Most people would be better off not taking a gun. I once fired a gun over the head of a grizzly bear. We banged on pots to scare the bear ( I wouldn’t do that again scare cats not bears. Cats scat but bears get mad) as the bear slowly and nonchalantly loafed away I fired a small hand gun over his head to help him hurry but he turned and gave me a look of pure discuss. I was discussed myself.
Do look where the sun doesn’t shine do not dig. What!!!!
Do take water. Do drink water.
Do go for walks but when looking for the treasure know where you are going .
Do have a plan showing where you are going. Give the plan to some one you trust and stay with the plan.
Do take a phone, whistle, fire starter, knife, rope, walking sticks and waders.
Do park in a safe place.
Do bring a backpack that fits 10″ x 10″ by 5″.
Nothing is guaranteed Billy Bobs understands that. We were stunned to hear a college student was trample in the parking lot of his school. Stay close to the car every person who got into trouble broke countless rules. It is not an Indiana Jones deal but it is a short and dense trip. It is NOT FOR THE MEEK. Believe me it is a lot like the water fall story in the book short sweet and terry scant.
If I am anywhere close, his place is impossible to recreate.
Just getting out my last ideas as the treasure has been found but as of yet no proof. Forrest pictures won’t prove anything. You said you had away to know. If a picture showing something only you knew was in the chest is what you are looking for it would prove to you it was found and would mean nothing to anyone else. Prove it with your solve and leave out any proof of exact place. This way government cant use anything and you audience can have closer.
