    No Australian accent tells me you left America for some adventure in the wilds of the Aussie inland Terence. You followed many to the rich western goldfields. I too tried some mining at Kalgoolie.. no dice.. no more than my train fare back to Sydney and an engagement ring for my fiancee.......

    Craig, my mining gut told me to get some gear which we did like the ropes, chain, pulleys..cement...tools..axes..dynamite... picks, spades, buckets..all on Bruce's back.
    I off load him every night.

    Later we found the map and the Money Tree is in the SW corner with a Spade next to it! Mining and digging I reckon that shows. I may be psychotic? no, Psychic?

    Anyway, keep that revolver oiled and loaded I lent you.
    You too Shirley with that small calibre 8 shot handgun I loaned you too. I'll check it for you. Louise, here's a sharp knife, just in case. Keep them all hidden too, you too Ernie, specially with the Injuns, I reckon?

    Tragedy struck the expedition when Ernie wandered off and fell into quicksand and drowned despite efforts by Terence and Craig to save him..

    Poor Ernie, what a dreadful way to go.
    We tried really hard to save him, so hard, but he couldn't get his arms out to grab the rope. Bruce could have pulled him out if only he'd been able to grab the rope.
    I'm really upset. We can't even recover his body to give him a decent burial.
    I think we should make a warning sign, and mention Ernie. RIP Ernie.

    Yes Terence quick thinking by you to attach a rope to Bruce but all too late. Louise said she heard a strangled like shout. The quicksand sucked Ernie under before we were able to get to him. Only his arm was above the surface which Craig grabbed.

    We did ask Ernie to stay with the rest of the group but he was a stubborn old codger. A kind touch the RIP sign too.

    My explosive ending involved poor Ernie dying a tragic death. Now that he is gone, I need a brave volunteer to take his place. Who wants to volunteer first? :D

    Terence, it's really courageous of you to volunteer to make the supreme sacrifice but we need you to continue our story. :) So our brave Indian Brave will go to meet the Great Spirit. :)

    So here we go:

    As we approached the money tree, our Indian guide pulled a knife from his pouch and said, "Get back! The money is all mine! Bwahaha! All mine!" Then he ran to the Money Tree and started grabbing bills with both hands. Then the curse of the money tree that Crazy Uncle Eddie warned us about struck. The curse says that anyone who is not pure of heart that touches the Money Tree will be struck by lightening. The Indian's greed brought him to a tragic end.
    :(

    So ends our search for the Money Tree.

    We made our way back to Crazy Uncle Eddie's cabin and decided to go fishin' in the stream behind the cabin. But Look! What is that shiny looking rock we see?

    Can it be gold????????

    https://deq.nc.gov/.../geoscience-education/gold-of-nc
    Gold has been an important part of North Carolina’s history since 1799, the date of the first authenticated discovery of gold in the United States. North Carolina was the nation’s only gold-producing state from 1803 until 1828, and continued as a leading producer until 1848 when gold was discovered in California.
    Experts think only 5 percent of the gold in North Carolina has been found.
    A lot of the undiscovered gold is in local creek beds and in people's back yards, experts say, and there's a growing rush to find it.



    Can it???????

    ..and here we were all thinking that the tree was so called because Crazy Uncle Eddie had buried his stash under it when the money was actually growing on its branches. Terence how much did the tree produce as you have now finished counting it. Are we wealthy or comfortably well off? If latter then Shirley we have to hope that is GOLD in that thar stream......
