    so, what would you do?

    1) Keep saving money so that you could tour for a few months or longer, or

    2) Buy a $277 metal detector to search for possible expensive buried treasure at your parent's old farmhouse?



    While your answers will more likely than not have no effect on whichever I choose to do.... don't let that scare you off :D

    does the tour refer to a military tour?

    Metal detector? :D Haha, dude, no. :D

    No, man. :D Why would you need to save up money to be in the military? I'm pretty sure the military pays you. :tongue:

    I think you should wait another 50 years before buying a metal detector.

    But then I'd only find the junk that my family loses :(


    I think I will be buying one near the end of June... Yes! Chris made the finest point [​IMG]

    they found a locally famous corpse at the family farmhouse a couple years ago; i suspect that was the only treasure to be found there, so i wouldn't spend money on a metal detector myself

    You ought to be able to find some old, wheelchair-bound man who will give you his old one. :D :( How depressing...

    Pirates and such didn't bury treasure, nor did they have treasure maps... it's rather obscure--supposedly, only Captain William Kidd did that, but there's also Oak Island, in Nova Scotia. A lot of people say that Edward Teach (blackethfacialhairus sapiens) booby trapped his treasure on Oak Island, since there's a quote that he hid his money where only satan and himself could find it.

    But... it's very unrealistic. I've been hearing some talk about Queen Anne's Revenge, in NC. People have been really hot on trying to find his ship, this year. I feel some poor, but fortunate, randomass local from Ocracoke Island or Beaufort will find it someday... probably a fisherman or artisan or something. I know plenty of guys who do spearfishing for restaurants, in the Outer Banks, that are always going nuts about diving for it.
