The passing of a friend

I am sad to say that we have lost another treasure hunter. A friend of mine and hunting partner passed away yesterday after losing a battle with cancer.

He was a private man and kept his treasure hunting activites from those he didn't know and that weren't treasure hunters themselves. Because of that I will only use his first name which is Jim. He would laugh at the photo I have posted but this is a spot we spent 100's of hours in hunting for the ever illusive treasure.

Jim and I hunted together for several years and spent many, many hours discussing the could be's and can't be's of the Knights of the Golden Circle. Needless to say, neither one of us ever completely convinced the other to change his opinion.

He was a good man and a good friend and he will be missed dearly.

As cliche as this may sound, I would like to remind all of our readers to pay attention to the really important things in life because life is short and uncertain. Dare to dream, and enjoy life with the ones you care about.

This kind of news is never easy. Seems Jim and you got to spend a lot of quality time together. Your memories of times together will keep him alive for a long time. You never know but remembering his stories and you doing the leg work you guys still might find that illusive cache!
