It can be found

Treasure is out there and it is still being found, but this story comes to you almost a century after it occurred. It was in the spring of 1918 that J. Epperly and his son were searching for treasure along Kickapoo Creek about eight miles southeast of Hinton, Oklahoma.

Like many stories I've heard before, they stumbled upon a two gallon kettle that had been recently dug up. The imprints of the coins were plainly visible on the insides of the kettle. A blazed tree had marked the spot of the hidden loot.

Treasure is out there waiting to be found. With hard work, research, and a little bit of luck you just might be the person who leaves the empty kettle for the next guy to find.
