Well thanks for the reply!
I agree, there are so many different versions of the LDM story, it's almost mind boggling. I haven't come up with any new theories on the story, but I have been doing alot of research over the last year because I thought it would be interesting to search using google earth. I have come up with a location, which I will reveal soon, not that it's THE location, just what I came up after putting it all together in my own mind - the stories, the Peralta Maps, various other maps, etc. Mostly I found the location I chose by using the death bed confession. I had already found that location when I learned about the Peralta Stone Maps. They blew my mind because they were so relevant to my choice of location. Again, I plan on posting it as I know even if it was the right and true spot, there is no way I'm ever going to be able to go out there and get that gold...lol.. I am planning a trek into the supes next weekend. I am not sure I will make it as far as I want to go this trip as I am not in the best shape for a miles long hike, but I am strong headed so that might help.. I'm sure things won't look the same as they do on google earth and I have to prove that to myself.....lol....
Anyways, I'm gonna keep reading through all the stuff here. Lots of interesting posts to keep me busy for a while.
Have a great weekend, now!
