Treasure
Hunting And
The
Credibility
Gap
ln
an
age
when
men are
accomplishing
the
incredible fact
of
landing
on
the
moon
it
seems
difficult
to
lend
credibility
to
our own
field of
treasure
hunting.
When
each
day widens
the
credibility
gap between
the
government
and
the
citizens
of this country it's
imperative
that
each
of
us
as
treasure hunters establish a more credible
foundation
for
our
field.
Greats, near greats,
fathers,
grandfathers
of
treasure
hunting,
coinshooters,
professionals,
amateurs,
who
is
who
in
this
business
called treasure hunting? The stories
of
treasures
found
are rampant,
the
size
of
some
of
the finds
are
astronomical beyond belief,
and
yet, who
is
tosay.
Some treasure
hunters
are
pulling
in "car
loads
of
silver"
and
yet
I
know
both
Glenn
and
I
are
still
looking
for that first
gold
coin.
ln
short,
when
you
get
right down
to
it,
treasure
hunting
is
a
very
personalthing-to
say
you
are a treasure
hunter
is
a
big
undertaking,
besides
who would
understand
what you
said
if
you
referred
to
yourself
as
a coinshooter?
Somehow we are
all
looking
for
our identity.for this
is
human nature.
The
world
is
full of
questions such as,
"Who am
l,
Where have
I
been?," and
if
you
hunttreasure
"What
have
I found?"
lf
you
look
for
coins
in
a
local park,
you
are
a believer.
lf
you
hunt
for the
Lost
Dutchman,
this
is
your
experience
of
life.
Take caution,
however,
that you
never
take credit
for
something
you
didn't
find or
do.
As
treasure hunters we
are
all
vulnerable
that
our
existence
depends
on
the
creditability that
we
personally lend
to
ourselves,
others,
our
hobby
and profession.

Security
A
majority
of
people
search
for "security" without
really knowing
what
it
is
they
seek,
and
as
a result
they
never
find it.
Security
is
the
BELIEF you
can
rnaster
any
situations
to
come
your
way, which
also demands
that
you
believe
that you
know
the
limits
of
those situations.
lf
one
believes
he
knows
the situation
and can handle
it,
he
feels secure.
This
feeling
is
what
makes
THing the
potentially
profitable
endeavor
it
is.
The
truth
of
it
is
that
nobody
is
totally
secure,
even
if
he
believes
that
he is.
The
blithering
idiot
may feel
secure
while
banging
crystalized sticks
of
dynamite
on
a
concrete
floor. An
old
miser
of
years ago
may
have
felt
secure
in
his buried crocks
of
coins,
never
dreaming
of
the
flash
flood
racing downstream
towards
his shack.
How
many
people
of
yesteryears cached
money away
to
tide them through
their old
age
only
to
suddenly
and
early
succumb
to
diptheria,
typhoid,
tornado, or conflict?How
often
have
you
read
or
heard
of
someone
futowing about
a
treasure, and
dying
withthat
knowledge
unused? He had
a
job.
He had
a
wife
and kids and responsibilities. The
cache
was
elsewhere,
too
far
away.
lt
had
been
there
that
long so
it
would
stay there a while
longer.
He'd look
for
it
when
he had
time.
Only
time
ran
out.Security.
The
poor
fellow
above
would
jeopordize
his
job
if
he
took off
a
few
days
from
work,
and
he
couldn't
dare
do
that,
even
though
he
was sure his
Grampaw
knewthe
straight
story about
those
hidden
1000
$20 gold
pieces.
Could
the
"real
security"
be
somewhere outside
the ruts
we dig
for
ourselves?
A
qualifiedyes
is
probably
the
answer,
for
it
would
be
utter
chaos
if
everyone decided
to
throw
ofi
their
yokes
at the
same
time.
lf
a person
has
a
family
he
should
care
for
them.
Still,
today'sTHing
is
very
much an expression
of
protest
against
the ruts in which folks
become
mired.
lt
seems
to
me
that
THers
are usually
people
with
the
vision
to
see
that "real security"
is
not
within
the
self-imposed
limits
people usually forge
for
themselves.
THing
is
a
search,
not
for
"security", but
for
new horizons.
One does
not
know what
he
will
find,
and one
does
not
know
the limits of
the
search.
lt
is
this
sense
of
adventure
that
is
making
the
THing
field
what
it
is
today.
