    DD Cathy spends a lot of time in the Kettle Moraine area here in Wisconsin. Does volunteer work on invasive species and hiking.
    She met a guy this week who asked her if she was looking for the treasure.
    ????
    It turns out a guy whose dog ran off, in going to find it, had an idea to take all the cash he had on hand ($2000) and stash it in the woods. He then wrote a small book explaining it and then giving the clues needed to find the treasure. This he put on Amazon to sell.
    It is selling well and Cathy has been out three days this week with the great weather.
    The author will make back the money and then some. It will be interesting to see how much. He will announce the winner.

    It will be interesting to see how the winner is verified to everyone's satisfaction.

    Although the amounts are extremely different, perhaps the person hiding the money took a page out of this gentleman’s book?

    Reminds one of the Lost Dutchman Mine, in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona. Millions in gold hidden somewhere, never found.

    That is a good idea. Profitable and fun.
    I worked at Sylvania TV in the '70's and there was a guy that would raffle his pay check.
