Multimillionaire wants you to find his hidden treasure

Post by artjumble »

I was surprised that this wasn't posted already. Maybe a HAZer can be the lucky one to find it.

@azbackpackr I heard on the news it was someone from the eastern U.S. Everyone knew it was in the Rockies, that was one of the clues...and that it was over 5,000 feet, near water, under trees where someone like him (in his 70s) could easily access it, etc.

This was his website: www oldsantafetradingco com/the-thrill-resource-page ( invalid as of 2020-10-23 )

A few more details have emerged since June:

The treasure was supposedly hidden in the Rocky Mountains in Wyoming (no further details)
