    Very interesting and intriguing. I would love to talk with whoever buried the buckets.

    I sure wish I could find the barrel I buried in 1974...... We have found all four walls/stems walls of the rock foundation. It measures 30' X 60'. The current owner has actually given me a key to the place so I can go out there just about any time I want. My son and I have dug several holes inside the foundation. My former co-worker has a box full of stuff he has found with his metal detector. We found part of a concrete foundation or something concrete anyway when we first started probing it was about 4 feet below ground level. I think it must have been some part of a drainage system (Old dairy barn) or something like that. Anyway after 40 or 50 hours over the last three years I have pretty well accepted the fact that I am not going to find it.

    Yep, WSF rule #47, if you find a cache and the food is out of date by more than 10 years it is yours to play with!

    WSF rule #48, always put a roll of TP in the bucket in case the finder decides to eat the out of date contents.

    It's the right thing to do.

    Rule 49. If their stuff is better than yours, swap it out. This ensures the fittest of the specie. Sort of like rule 48 above.

    Spent sometime in San Francisco
    I spent a night there in the can
    They threw this drunk man in my jail cell
    I took fifteen dollars from that man

    Left him my watch and my old house key
    Don't want folks thinkin' that I'd steal
    Then I thanked him as I was leaving
    And I headed out for Bakersfield

    I just had to cancel a good post about treasure hunting and the IRS.

    It's that time of year.

    I keep all the rings, jewelry and money I find with my metal detector. I have a whole plunder drawer full of stuff I've found. Finders keepers, losers weepers ??

    In Michigan the frost line is 48", Iv'e had cache only 18"-24" so still accessible under snow and frozen ground. Use schedule 40 PVC, glue the caps on, never had a issue contents always dry.
