Map Rock of Northern Arizona, Aztec (Digital Reconstruction)

This might be another of those "great visual resource but, after browsing a few of [my] other posts and [My] "about me" section, I worry about sharing this gentleman's website based on his apparent animosity towards academic archaeology." 
(Comment left by someone of the academic world on a previous post) 

Simply Asinine... Be careful where you share this, we wouldn't want anyone venturing beyond the academic curriculum and thinking for themselves now....

Map Rock of Northern Arizona

There are literally thousands of ancient petroglyph and Pictograph panels out there in danger of being destroyed forever, what is considered as "Art" by many, and all I can say about that is... To each his own. It is a message from the past, intended for future generations... I am only one man, but I will stop at nothing to continue documenting and putting forth the effort to preserve and restore whenever, wherever, and however possible and with whatever method needed, Gasp!... I do not care whose feathers it may ruffle as long as it does not include an unlawful practice. I cannot tell you how bad I have needed help in the past, but as it would seem some just feel it is more important to put up signs near glyph sites warning us of "Delicate Dirt"... Really?... , and I hope to soon have a resolution  for this problem of many years... My apologies to those who don't understand my attitude which is largely based on past experience, or the amount of coffee I have consumed before I commence writing... ;-)

The following is with out any doubt one of the most difficult digital restoration projects I have ever undertaken. I don't think there is anything more I can do, except keep studying it. Unfortunately and obviously it is not a physical restoration, If Only...  My first objective was to restore to the point making possible the study of the panel in its entirety, the second is to share... I hope you enjoy...

Many years ago a friend told me as we drove down the road near Kanab about a map rock that a Native American had told him about that was in the area and supposedly showed details of the 3 lakes site and other things in the area documented/inscribed by the Aztec, I had my doubts but... who knows? Although the details he was told did not quite match to the following, I could not help but wonder if it is not one and the same that he was told of but to my knowledge the one he spoke of was never located, or has it been?

Some years later a Navajo friend from the area took me to show me a petroglyph site near Kanab, it did not dawn on me until after I documented the entire panel trying to learn what it was and discovering that it is more than likely the very map rock that my friend was told of.

After being taken to this site, and trying to solicit rock art organizations for help with no success, we decided to take upon ourselves the project... consulting with an BLM archaeologist,  My friend Glen, his wife JoDee and I set out to the site to undertake what we felt might be impossible due to the massive amounts of graffiti at the site which made it very difficult to document, this was near 15 years ago. Many days had passed documenting this site meticulously using a mirror to cast light under the overhanging ledge where it was always shaded except in winter months capturing even the finest details and being very careful to distinguish between graffiti and Native American glyphs.

When we finished I knew we could not get all of the entire site into one picture and so we took photos starting from left to right and moving from top to bottom. It would be 11 years before Randy Bradford put enough pressure on me to finish the project which I could not in previous years due to the lack of capable software. The painstaking process of putting the pieces or individual photos together began in about 2006, My only critics have been, the very people whom I sought help from, but received no response. Quite to my surprise, I posted this one year ago, and apparently there are some who just do not understand, this is not "Art" it is an ancient message from the past... a message intended for future generations... and whatever it takes to preserve that message, I WILL do... I don't care what the critics have to say...

Some say I obviously have animosity towards the academics, Ya think?...  my response is two fold, I have absolutely no problem with the academics IF... they discontinue the practice of throwing out the evidence for the sake of the theory... and second, yer damned rights I do! and have you EVER thought to ask why? their time would best be spent creating delicate dirt signs.... I have many friends of the academic world, these are those who took the time to ask and to understand...

I wish I could tell you the half of what you are looking at and what it took to recreate this image... but this photo is the results of all the work that Glen, JoDee and I put into it, not to mention 11 years later meticulously converting the photos to black and white and then matching them side by side etc... to get the end result you see here..

This map as I call it, shows not only the 3 lakes site north of Kanab but also things pertaining to the presumed underground cities of the Aztec, one presumed to be found in the grand canyon, and things some would think has to do with the legends of Moctezuma and other things I am certain you would not believe should I tell. Why is this panel so important? Because it is a Historic event and validates some things found in the Aztec Record.

This panel talks of "the People" fleeing before an enemy and showing details of their tactics to evade them but was this the Spanish invaders, or some other unknown culture? It also shows the location of the cave in which the Aztec came from anciently and was their home for near 300 years after they had been expelled from their homeland of Aztlan. Most anyone can see the implications of the 3 Lakes site of which you can find North of Kanab and you will notice the hieroglyph activity at the 3rd lake or south lake, including two hieroglyphs showing broad movement or enter at the 3rd lake and "fleeing" from it.

There are so many things that this panel ties to, including an incredible story given to me by a friend many years ago having to do with a cave of the Indigenous, and of enormous dimensions containing amounts unknown to any man. Fortunately, as the people fled the enemy, they did not go to this ancient place likely because the enemy was not far behind them, and the enemy never knew of its existence. This panel also shows a navigation hieroglyph (nick named the key glyph) in which was used to travel back and forth between Mexico and their home of ancient times, it even shows in part how it is used in navigation, it is believed to be the very signs and symbols used and mentioned in the Aztec Record of Diego Duran 1581, which is in and of itself one of the many projects of documentation I am tied up with.

However... Take it all with a grain of salt, I'm sure the experts are right, it is likely just hunting magic, cowboy scribbling, just plain doodling.... or just rock art.... and should you go to visit this site, although the signs are not yet there... please stay on the trail so anyone and everyone else can find it, and please... be aware of the delicate dirt.... I can see I need more coffee....

Anyone who has a serious interest in the study of the Native American Glyphs may inquire about receiving a much larger image for study. email tuscoro@gmail.com

Maps of the Ancient Past

What’s in the Maps

Many years ago as I was searching and learning regarding Aztlan, the Aztec and the key feature Lake Copala, lets face it, you are not going to find Aztlan if you cannot find the lake, I recall reading the casual comments regarding the maps of old. It would seem that who ever was doing the writing like to tell the reader what the Cartographers thought, and what the Spanish thought. This is a similar problem I run into today in scriptural studies, the modern scholarly authors are always telling us what the prophets of old “actually” meant, I never could buy into the idea that today’s scholars or anyone living today know more about what the ancient prophets meant, than what the prophets actually said. I think they said what they meant and meant what they said.

I tend to believe the Cartographers of old knew more about what they were drawing, and what they thought than those of today whom without any supporting reference tell us what the cartographer thought.

One of these things we were told was that the Spanish thought that California was an Island, where would the Cartographers get such a crazy idea? Well, likely because of all the maps they had access to when they created their map, and, surprise! As it turns out, California WAS an Island in the past, or very near to it, this is not a hypothesis, it is a fact. If you search the various cretaceous maps, although they are quite general, you will see the very high probability. The problem is, this was in the cretaceous period, at a time science attributes to having existed 60+ million years ago, certainly no man who ever lived could have seen California as an island right?

Another of these things which I had read is that the cartographers were mistaken in showing that the gulf of California extended at one time, as far as even Las Vegas. Well once again, since I had read this it would seem it is a proven fact and even some scientists are beginning to believe and see that this was the case in the not so distant past rather than million of years ago, there are a few stories documented in the past of ships sailing into this ancient Salton sea and becoming stranded, and references to a river some 7 leguas wide... Yet here again, the maps of old show exactly this.

One other key feature which was associated with several legends regarding 7 cities, on an island, in a sea,  the mythical place called Aztlan, another called it Avlon and one a little more ancient referred to by Plato as Atlan-tis, but the key to finding this mythical place of Aztlan was to find the elusive lake Copala. The authors of the past told us that the Spanish learned of this place from the Aztec, but the fact is, those early explorers knew of this place long before even Columbus thought of coming here. We were told the Cartographers “thought” the lake existed and so they placed it on the maps. Well once again it is a known fact that in the very place where this mysterious lake should be, there was indeed an ancient lake and again, geologist with their wonderful and flawless dating system, state that this lake hasn’t been in existence for 33 million years, geologist call it Lake Uinta. I have in former articles shown the uncanny resemblance of this 33 million year old lake and the mysterious Lake Copala on the old Latin maps. Why is Aztlan important? With some research, it will come to you... Many tribes of the past refer to it as "Turtle Island"

On 3 of French maps it shows a river flowing east from the mysterious presumed lake Copala, the Salt Sea which Humboldt was told of that the river he was following lead to, but he never made it to, yet somehow the cartographer managed to capture not only its near correct location but the very image of it, how could this be? We all know that from the location of Lake Uinta, if a river was flowing east it would have to circumvent the Northern Colorado mountains before it entered the upper waters of the Missourri, is it possible that in times past a river flowed East out of the basin? Well yes, but of course this was “millions” of years ago… This one is yet to be proven… But where did all the cartographers get this information of this apparent Lake Uinta? And some showing a river that once flowed east from it? The Gulf of California extending at times as far as Las Vegas? California being an Island?

Keep in mind, we know so little about the history of this continent let alone its geography including and more so the time table, and the things I have proposed as possibilities are much less ridiculous than the THEORIES of Pangea, Continental Drift, Polar Wandering and an Ice age let alone a “last” one… The things that they try to convince us of regarding geologic feature age, and taught as if it were a fact, did not occur as far back as they believe or have been taught to believe… the inconsistencies just keep coming, telling us that something is wrong with the dating system, but those who control the various forms of media keep creating their excuses… Many do not understand that the outlandish dates are as a result of a flawed dating system due to lack of understanding. Without going into that subject you can read more here……

Well, with these tales of what the Spanish or early explorers thought, an occasional map was shown, I always thought there were just a few… it wouldn’t be for another 15 years that I discovered that there are not just a few, it would seem that every known cartographer of various countries with the exception of those who did not have access to the Imperial Library of Constantinople which after 1000 years or better, was mysteriously destroyed by fire and a majority of its contents, or were they?  Yet some how they were all including the same features, not to mention capturing the very likeness of this 33 Million year old lake Uinta, I’m sure it is all just a coincident. I have seen at least 20 different digital maps made by various Cartographers, and there are several more, why is it a majority included these features? I believe this can be in part answer by one cartographer’s notes…

From an 18th century cartographer

“he said that a great part of it was taken from the original draughts of Mr. Blackmore, the ingenious Mr. Berisford, Capt. Nairn, and others never before published."

If It Quacks Like a Roman...

Roman Scale Armor from Texas

Having already written about the discovery of Roman artifacts discovered near Tucson Arizona, and written upon the artifacts is a very interesting story in old Latin telling of Roman expeditions arriving here in about 700 A.D. until about 1000 A.D. when they were overthrown by the Toltec, I am left wondering again the reasons why the academic world is so adamant about suppressing the facts. I find it quite comical yet frustrating as I read the various reports which always follow the incredible finds of the past that might upset the academic world current fictitious and orthodox views of the history of this continent.

I have made no secret of the many Spanish exploration documents of the past which I have in my collection which today is no big feat and they are available to anyone who has enough desire to seek them out. I have read these documents over and over and one thing that seemed to slip past me for years but I began to take notice of, was that in reading the words of those who wrote them, it became very clear by the statements made, these people were looking for evidence of previous occupation of past Castilian expeditions in the areas of “the” New Mexico, which included Colorado, Utah, Arizona and a majority of parts of California and Texas. They made notations along the way in these documents, whenever they encountered Castilian Grapes, Flax and Walnuts just to name a few it was noted, how could there be Castilian Walnuts if Castilians were not there prior? and this can be noted in Coronado’s first expedition.

From Coronado’s first expedition into old New Mexico, Alvar Nunez, Marco de Niza and all the way to Antonio de Espejo, it is clear they were looking for evidences of past explorations prior to Columbus’s voyage. To give even more credibility to the many references the academic world seems to never give any heed to the many early maps of the New World, the very names mentioned upon them found also upon the Tucson artifacts, Calicuas (Calalus) and Septimania? Why are some written in Latin and not the old Spanish? Why would the reference of Septimania be on the maps of a culture who existed between 500 AD and 1000 AD? It was a cool name? Did the Cartographer just arbitrarily place the cities and the missing lake whever he wanted to? At the end of the times of old Septimania is the beginning recognition of the Castilian.

How is it that certain cartographers of Spain were able to make such accurate renditions of the illusive lake Copala if they had never seen it? Someone clearly had seen this long before, and even the French Moll map in the rendition of the Lake he never made it to? Lucky I guess.

Lake Uinta Compared

And so it was of no surprise to me, that portions of Scale Armor, which was for the most part discontinued in its usage especially by the Roman Empire by the 13th century, was found in the very regions in which the Tucson artifacts evidences speak of, Western Texas and Northern New Mexico.

It is humorous to read the excuses the academics come up with regarding the reasons they were found here, One individual… excusist? Shall we call them, stated that of the Roman armor scale found in Aztec New Mexico, that is was likely a family air loom brought to the Americas by Coronado or one of his men and lost. What? Of which of you is going to join a Spanish expedition into the savage unknown as a soldier and drag a family air loom along over 3000 miles of sea, and then another 2000 miles north into the savage regions of the Indigenous?

Scales from Aztec New Mexico

Another individual made the statement that it was likely left over armor from the past and used by Spanish soldiers, as it was known that those Spanish soldier had to provide their own armor? Yet of course no references was given to this ridiculous conclusion. I challenge any of the academics to provide written documents stating that the Spanish soldiers who enlisted to join these PAID expeditions with a high expectation of death, were not PROVIDED with all that they needed and required to bring their own armor?

HOWEVER…. I am NOT saying that these two discoveries ARE as result of Roman occupation of the Americas, I AM suggesting that the possibility is there, the likely hood of Armor of any kind surviving the eliments of time, since the Roman colonies came here in 700 A.D. and expelled as late as 1000 A.D. is next to slim, however there is one possible means…

In two primary articles concerning these artifacts, one of them apparently saw the possibility, as reading through it, it would seem the objective was not only to blame their existence on the Spanish, but to completely rule out the possibility of being of Roman origins and this I believe is because they were well aware of the discovery of the controversial Tucson Lead artifacts found in 1927.

Now for a little fun…

Here is one of the Reports, which I find is written in seeming desperation to keep a possible cat in the bag, it was from 1999 HUGH C. ROGERS AND DONALD J. LAROCCA.
The article reads: (Pay attention to the careful but incriminating words chosen by Rogers and Larocca in this intended diversion article)

Six Armor Scales from New Mexico
Probably Spanish, 15th to 16th Century Iron and wool (Dimensions given)… [Probably? This means they might not be, but of course they do not go there… can you say speculation? how about diversion? If not Spanish origin, then who? If the history is correct and the academics know it, why use the word probably?]
These six scales come from a group of approximately three to four hundred recovered from a region of New Mexico that the Spanish explored and later colonized in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. [Of course they had to open with this to get you focused on Spanish which of course is a possibility]
Originally the scales would have been riveted in an overlapping pattern, like shingles, to the outside of a leather or textile jacket (traces of fiber, apparently wool, remain under some of rivet heads).
They are important as the only examples of scale armor to have been found in the new world. [I wonder why that is? I mean if the Spanish were using them, why haven’t others been found? It is unknown whether Rogers and Larocca knew of the Texas find at the time of this article, but make no mistake, they most certainly knew of the Tucson Lead crosses discovered in 1927] They are also interesting because they represent a form of armor that appears to have stopped being used in Europe well before the colonization of the American southwest. [about 300 years prior]
Scale armor is an extremely ancient form of defense, with surviving fragments from the Middle East dating as early as about 1700 B.C. In Europe variation of scale armor were used from the Roman period through the end of the Middle Ages. [1300 AD] Full-torso armor of scale went out of fashion after the mid fourteenth century A. D. [None of the other soldiers were wearing them so to get the girls they had to wear the new in style solid armor… Fashion? Really?] But some scaled armor continued to be made and worn in certain circumstances as late as the seventeenth century. [Of course notice there is no reference or evidence to back up this statement, I for one would like to see it]
The coat of scales from which the museums examples must have come was probably [there’s that word again] owned by two or three generations where it was brought to New Mexico presumably [I should say so] on a Spanish expedition of the late sixteenth or seventeenth century. [Those poor soldier being made to go to school in out of style armor, the other soldiers no doubt made fun of them, kidding set aside, this is a possible solution to the presents of this type of armor being found on this continent] The armor was most likely worn by a soldier of modest means who could not afford more up-to date equipment, as was the case with many soldiers who came to the new world to seek their fortune. [in all that I have read regarding the Spanish explorations, I have never seen any suggesting of this, however possible, show me the facts]
You can always tell by the use of words, what the intended purpose of an article is… Why not just call them forgeries? Wouldn’t it have been easier? 

Scale Armor Found in Texas in 1870

Now this other possibility I spoke of early is this…
ONLY two of this type of artifacts have been found, contrary to popular academic belief, hundreds if not thousands of Spaniards have traveled these regions and killed I might add, it just seems to me that if there were SOME Spanish soldiers using this type of armor which even the academics knew had been discontinued in about 1300 A.D. it would seem that MUCH more than two discoveries of it would exist. But it is possible…

One discovery was in North West Texas in 1870, and the other in Aztec New Mexico in 1920. The Texas find was quite well preserved with cloth and leather still intact holding the Armor scale together but the New Mexico discovery was what you would expect to find, with solid but rusted scales with very little evidence of cloth remaining, if it were in fact of the early Spanish occupation.

There is one hypothesis that is no more ridiculous than the excuses offered by the academic write up, in fact I find it to be much more plausible. The indigenous each have their legends of an ancient enemy long before the Spanish, an enemy who were clad in Iron and whose weapons were so terrible their braves would fall to the earth long before their arrows could reach the enemy, many legends of a pale skin enemy of the past exist among them.

If in fact Romans came to this place of which is told by the Tucson artifacts, and the many other corroborating evidences ignored, it is HIGHLY likely that several of these “costa de malla” would have been strewn all over after a battle and if no one ever disturbed them leaving them where they fell, there is NO WAY any of them could have survived the elements of time from 1000 A.D. and today or even 100 years ago there would be nothing left of them. HOWEVER…. Do you think after a battle the indigenous in wonder might have examined the very thing which they noticed protected their enemy? Do you think that several of these were taken and incorporated into their own usage in war? To say no, would be like the United States military finding advanced weaponry of their enemy, and leaving it lie… Do we have evidence of this? Yes we do… and if the Indigenous gathered up these advantages in war, they would most likely have stored them in places where they could have easily survived these elements of time, and used them for themselves.

This is what I think is the source of the Aztec New Mexico find, and likely the Texas find is the result of finding the remains of  an Indigenous warrior who fell in battle either against the Spanish or even a rivaling tribe.

Recently I saw on History channel a report of the Aztec New Mexico discovery, each of the archaeologist when making reference to the scales kept repeating back and forth “Scale Mail” mail meaning scales or small plates, I did not understand this at first, but in all the expedition documents I have ever read and the many histories of the Spanish conquest, not common to the public the WORDS USED is “cotas de malla” this is also what you find in the archaeologist reports of the same, are these people really that lazy?

Cotas de malla is the words used in the old documents, the translating of this phrase is Coats of MESH, it DOES NOT translate to Coats of Scale or their new indoctrinated nick name of Scale Mail. Why is this so important? It would seem the effort is to convince you that all the references to Cotas de Malla in the old documents is referring to these Scale Armors that have been found and convincing you that it was common among the Spanish in the 1500’s and 1600’s of which it was NOT. MESH Armor however was, because Scale armor had not been used nor even manufactured since the 1300’s, WIKI at least got it partially right.

Have you heard of Iron Shirt or Chief Iron Jacket? 1790-1858. Iron Jacket was a War Chief of the Comanche and if history has portrayed him correctly, he was known for his arrogance and his ability to blow bullets aside with his breath, this because of his habit of wearing his “Coat of Mail” again misusing the term, had it been a coat of Mail, Mail being the mistranslation of Malla which should be MESH, then Iron Jacket would have been wearing MESH Armor, which he was not, of the many descriptions given, it is clear he was wearing SCALE armor NOT MESH. Where did he get this scale armor? This is an excellent example of the hypothesis of the Indigenous using ancient Armor of the past and now it seems an effort is made to convince you that the ONLY possible scenario is they exist as a result of the Spanish arrival to this continent.

Roman Colonies were HERE long before Columbus! Academics refer to them as Pueblo people… And there were many others who came prior to them. Why is this possibility seemingly such a threat to them or the system of control whom they adhere, Smithsonian.

"Cotas de Malla" Coat of MESH, NOT Scales

The Lady? Of Where?

Ok so... I have had another mind blowing breakthrough as of this morning due to an article recently sent to me regarding the Maya[n] people having their origins in India, as it would seem I'm not the only one who has noticed the cultural similarities, of the Mayan and the people of India or Hindu.


Elche Spain

I have also seen a lot of... well... crap regarding the Lady of Elche recently, little do these people know, the lady of Elche isn't even a lady, nor did it originate in Spain, I wonder if they know another was found in Lebanon? Should we now call it the Lady of Lebanon?


or how about the Lady of Richfield? Ooops, that profile kind of messes things up for the Elongated Head/Ancient Alien type people...Sorry Giorgio... and although I have nothing at this time to prove this, I also wonder if they know that the Buddha image which Kincaid saw in the underground city in the Grand Canyon was the same as the lady of ? I feel another book coming on....

Richfield Utah

Ok, I'm going to say it, and I would not expect one soul to believe it... but when you are looking at the so called Lady of Elche, you are looking at one of the earliest renditions of none other than Buddha, or,... here it comes... the son of... OR King Solomon himself. Maya, the mother of Buddha, is the infamous Biblical mentioned, Queen of Sheba, Originally from INDIA, NOT Ethiopia... or should we just call her the Queen of Shem-Bala, (Hindu for Children of Shem) It's no wonder the Chinese nor anyone else for that matter can't find the Mythical and legendary city of Shambala, they are looking on the wrong continent.... Now, try and sort that one out... LOL

Elche Bust                                            Buddha or his son?

Private Researcher Of the Antiquities, Seeks Partner

Wanted: Financial and Working partner in the search and documentation of Antiquities, Exploration, 
and Resolution of ancient sites.

The items in the collage above came from the Wasatch Mountains,
the Uinta Mountains, Illinois, Santa Fe, and the Four Corners area

          Private Researcher of near 30 years experience researching the antiquities of the Americas is seeking a qualified party to assist not only in a financial manner, but also in expeditions to bring about physical discovery of many historical mysteries.- those ancient artifacts and clues left behind by long forgotten peoples many years ago, and where possible, recovery. I cannot say enough about the projects and documents that have been acquired over the years, some of which are original source material. I am not a treasure hunter, per say, but instead a researcher of the antiquities. Some may have a difficult time distinguishing the differences between a researcher and a treasure hunter. The primary difference is motive…

Please read the following and if you have ideas of how this should or could be done either in total or in part I am open to any suggestions… (From Qualified Parties) I can’t please all of the people all of the time… I do not expect those who consider this to believe me, I only expect belief... Nothing transpires until both parties are satisfied…

          Some of you may wish to participate in this research and this is possible, however the qualified party I seek must be of a sort who could go to Vegas and squander a hundred thousand dollars just for fun and laugh all the way back home because they had a good time, and be of the attitude “what the hell”, it is entertainment and considered a tax write off or for whatever other reason can be shrugged off.

This partnership would begin with but not be limited to: two known cache sites estimated to be over 8 to 9+ figures total potential treasure value. This contract would be for an undetermined period of time, until success is met, or until the parties decide to discontinue the relationship. The financial partner and party must be prepared to cover the cost of research, expeditions, equipment and technology required on and above the monthly required amount. After all, once I give the details of a given project (and I DO give ALL the details) what recourse would I have, other than a so called “iron clad” non-competitive/non-disclosure agreement, considering that high dollar crafty attorneys get paid to discover loop holes if or when the party has a dishonest change of heart? There must be a very trusting relationship between myself and the financial partner from the beginning and throughout.

          I am not trying to make a living from this venture, I am trying to set up my retirement by being successful at bringing to fruition this phase of my life as well as other facets of the same. This offer is open to all who can, for the most part, meet the criteria and if both parties feel good about the partnership. Time is of the essence... I want to get back to my research to find additional sites that I know of and have been on the back-burner for way too long. I have the insatiable desire to spend as much quality time with my family as possible.

          I have in the past, had little to no desire to bring to conclusion the many mysteries, found in ancient stories, maps, and documents that I have accumulated over the last 30 years. The hunt and the mystery have been my motivation and quest in past times, however the desire to bring some of my research and knowledge of locations and valuables to fruition and resolution exists so that I may slowly slide into my later years of life. The desire of the thrill of the hunt will never change, however physical discovery has become essential for continuation of what drives me most, that being the research and resolution of the many mysteries still unsolved and discovery of material evidences left behind by those who had every intention of returning to take possession of their property, be it from their results of surplus wealth from successful adventures and efforts, or forced abandonment due to unforeseen incidents or circumstances.

          There are many projects to consider for first placement. At this time, no less than 76 projects have accumulated in my collection, some of which to be resolved require modern technology to attain the next step to a resolution. Technology that would allow us to find the final actual spot by overcoming difficulties like brush and shrubbery overgrown on the site. I speek of Lidar technology, or even Infrared for instance, which could aid in resolving the intended 'X' marks the spot. There are many difficulties to overcome in bringing resolution to some projects but with many others not so much difficulty is involved. Land ownership issues, pertinent law, and sometimes just location accessibility difficulties, some are in Mexico. Some are on Privately Owned land, or BLM, or Forest Service, State and even National Monument areas. Land status can change contrary to popular belief. Some sites are challenging in different ways and need to be addressed with patience sometimes.

          The qualified party must be sharp, able to help resolve inherent problems, and be someone who does not see brick walls, but quick solutions to circumnavigate the appearing obstacles. The party must be diplomatic in resolving issues of dispute, preferably politically connected, (though not an absolute requirement). He/She must be a skeptic for the truth but one with a stern belief of possibility and probability… Resourcefulness is a must, COMMON sense, and positive perspective please.  I am not always right… but I am most of the time… ;-) A personality of a light hearted sort and likes to joke and kid around to keep the sanity is also requested if possible, but not required of course! The chosen partner MUST be responsible, reliable, non-distracted when needed, DEDICATED and reachable, to avoid responsibility problems and slow down of the work load required. Time sensitive situations occasionally sometimes arise, if you say you are going to call, then call or send a message concerning the issue. In short, I do not work well with unclear, careless and hap-hazardous types or should I just say flakes? Say what you mean and mean what you say. I will however tolerate your weaknesses if you will but tolerate mine! ;-)

          These projects are NOT Story Book Tales… A few of the projects I am presently pursuing have at one time been written about famously, however many of them are first hand accounts from a given source or personal property i.e. a map. Some with extreme credibility and poor prominence, and others with less credibility yet good prominence and/or a mix of the two. The projects at hand include, Mummy Caves (Documentation only), underground and lost cities, several Spanish Expedition spoils, personal accounts of discovery, Moctezuma or Aztec related, Jesse James spoils, Banditos of Mexico spoils, and other subjects of which I will at this time, hold my tongue, all of which are considered in the sought after partnership.

A Synopsis Example of three of the first considered projects are as follows….

*An open shaft reported to have been found in 1920’s/30’s containing…. Things, shall we say? Lidar is the desired choice of technology, or we could place several men on the ground walking tirelessly back and forth through forest… Lidar would be so much more effective… Fall is near…way less labor intensive and less extra paid help... estimated value unknown but likely 7 digit plus.

*There is a semi well known map in recent years that has surfaced, and has since been published, but it would seem due to the perspective of the author of the map that those things upon it are difficult for the average to find. There is one location indicated on the map- likely a Jesuit Cache, we are certain of its location, plans to make an attempt at proving this are underway. Estimated Value 7 to 8 digits.

* Banditos Cache site, very famous site in Mexico and is well known there, but the exact location is unknown to them. With exact instructions gleaned from sources resulting in its discovery at the confirmed geographic feature, I intend to give this project, in its entirety, to be coordinated by a qualified partner, willing to take it upon themselves or help in discovering one who can. I am not looking for Superman. Should success be met with this site, I ask a meager 10%. Prominence is good, the location has been verified with boots on the ground, (reported to me as “Everything is just as you have said”). This is a 10 digit + site. Seeming problems may exist such as a language barrier and knowledge of Mexican ways, however I see them as beneficial and minor. It must be agreed upon and understood that no Aztec/Mexican related artifacts found at this sight are to be taken other than the smelted spoils we seek. ALL artifacts must be preserved and left in care of an already chosen representative of Mexican Culture. Isolated yet easy to get to, Don’t brush this one off due to its location, in many ways this one is less prohibited than many sites in the US.

          And there are more….

          This is NOT a current Non-Profit Organization of research, however I am considering it become so… and would only consider it for the benefit of the would-be partner for his purposes. With mild imagination this can easily be considered entertainment in the pursuit of profit.

          Before any solid information is shared, both parties will sign non-competition and non-disclosure agreements. Serious individuals can expect a personal sit down meeting near my home ground, to discuss possibilities, and Q and A, to address concerns and have a better understanding of the exact information.

          I cannot count how many times I have been asked the following question after bringing someone up to speed on many given projects and at that moment they realized what I had shown them was real… “Why don’t you go get it?” Although I often have skirted this question with simple answers such as, “I don’t need it” and it was true in the day… I am going to try and answer this in hopes that a majority understands… Gold simply does not excite me, I do not lust after it, the riches I seek are often ignored by the majority. I am finding it, and stock piling it… and (I do not expect any others to understand this), what drives me is the mystery and the need to resolve and understand the truth of a given thing, and that is as best as I can put it… Often times, those very people whom have asked the above question, have been given the location(s) and yet for their own reasons, they have never gone to “get it” either, even though a shovel was placed in their hands, and an X placed on the ground…

          Much time has passed since then and some things change as they have in the last 10 years or so and I realize now even though the lust for gold is still not there, I realize what it can do for me in furthering those things which I do hold sacred, and wish to accomplish. I do not expect any who have been a part of my adventures in the past, a reader, let alone a possible partner to believe any of what I may have to say, however there are those things to show, and all I ask, is to consider, and have some belief, if you don’t see it, go your merry way…

          It is not possible to cover all of the points intended in this… query or opportunity. If you feel you are a qualified prospect, please feel free to direct serious inquiry or questions to:

and I will do my best to provide an honest and quick forthright answer, I will expect the same courtesy please. PLEASE share this post at your favorite treasure or exploration site.

80 lb Bars

As told to me in the early 80’s by my mother…

*Sometime in the late 1920’s or early 30’s my [mothers] uncle was hunting [deer presumably] west of a small Utah town, he had parked at the side of the road and took to hiking, after a good day of hiking, he noticed some dark clouds coming from the south west and decided he best head back. Apparently he miss-calculated and was overtaken by the storm of snow coming down heavy and sideways. No worries he thought, he’d just find some temporary shelter and wait it out. He saw a bush nestled up against a ledge and decided to make his way in behind the bush, upon digging back in far enough to be sheltered from the snow, he discovered it had a small cave behind it.

Perfectly content he gather small sticks laying around dragged in by critters, and built himself a little fire. While sitting there pondering life itself he noticed in the back of this small cave, a pile of… bricks? Reaching back and leaning he grabbed one of them to see what it was, to his surprise it was so heavy it quickly slid from his grip. Getting a firm grip he grabbed it again and moved it closer to the light and sure enough, it was an estimated 80 lb brick of gold. Many thoughts went through his head. After waiting out the storm, all the while trying to decide whether to take his gun or at least one bar as he could not take both he decided to take his gun and he would return as soon as he was able.
After the storm subsided, he made his way through the bush once again and stood studying his surrounding making sure he knew exactly where he was. Confident he could find his way back he made the trip to his mode of conveyance and returned home. Month after month he returned trying to find it again but did not, eventually it became just another story.

*Several years later or 28 Years ago I was at the Utah county recorder’s office looking up land ownership on private property that I wanted to do some searching for petroglyphs, I always sought permission before entering obvious private lands. Talking with the man helping me we talked a bit about what I was doing and why, when he learned of what I was looking for he perked up and volunteered a story, his introduction was asking me if I knew LeVan Martineua…  Of course I did and I proceeded to tell him that it was LeVan’s theories in which I peruse… He told me that LeVan was his scout master when he was a kid, and he told me about a panel LeVan had taken the scouts to which was east of this small town mentioned earlier. He said LeVan told them that this panel talks of a gold cache of 80 lb bars west of this small town… recalling my mothers story my ears perked up as the man explained where the panel was… to this day, I have only made one feeble attempt to find it.

*About 16 years ago in the early days of the Treasures of Utah forum, I had made many friends, one such friend and I had made a trip to see some glyphs not to far from the place LeVan took the scouts. On our return trip down the canyon, approaching and overlooking this small town, my friend having never heard the story from me, pointed to the west of this small town and said, did you know there is a small cave out there with 80lb gold bars in it? My jaw dropped and I asked him where did you hear this? He told me he had heard it from his Paiute woman friend, who relayed to him what the Paiute elders had told her.

* Some years later in about 2011 and just a few years prior to my mother’s passing, I and my mother were talking about the same story when she brought to my attention that her cousin or son of the man who found the Gold Bar Cave was still alive. She told me she had his number and so I decided to see what he knew of it. Answering the phone was an aged man but sharp as a whip, I explained why I was calling and he asked me to please tell him the story of which I did. He never said a word and was perfectly quiet, until I asked, “Have you ever heard this before?” He gasped and said, “I have not, but it makes perfect sense! Why? I asked, he said when I was little, my dad would gather us kids up and we would travel south to this small town and go hiking up and down the ledges west of town, week after week we did this and one day, I asked my father, “why do we always come her dad and what are you looking for? He said to me, “son, in one of these caves there is a certain kind of rock, and we are trying to find it. He said his dad never told him it was gold they were looking for…

Now, I am putting this story out exactly how it is ingrained into my mind and I have shared it because… I have offered this to several in the past but apparently there is no belief, and if there is no belief, there is now success… ONE of you has the ability by process of elimination to pursue this story. It is about 1 hour and a half to 1 hour and 45 minutes from Provo. It is easily accessible and there is no digging, but I have a plan that could make this much easier aside from technology and by using the simple process of walking or use 4 wheelers. If you have access to them or are a vigilant hiker one could find success with the right attitude and determination IF it is still there. I am tired of those who say I will and then do not, if you want something done right it would seem, you gotta do it yourself, but I believe there are exceptions to near every rule…

The immediate search area is about 2 ½ miles square, and maybe even a bit beyond, this seems like a large area probably because it is, however there are only so many ledges and they can be with a gps systematically eliminated with a careful search of the base of each ledge… I need someone dedicated enough with enough belief to go… If the story told is read and you have your doubts, don’t bother offering your services… what do I want out of it? I want someone to go find it and we’ll worry about that later…

UPDATE:...I think I found my huckleberry....

Skyline Monuments

Photos Courtesy of My Sweet Amy

If there is anything I have learned in the many years past, is don't believe everything you're told. and yet after all these years, I find I fell for it again...

I recall asking many back in the days about a certain mountain range regarding evidences of Spanish occupation, I was always told the same old cliche... The Spanish were never in those mountains as there is no mineral... well, that's what they said about the Silver Reef area.

last year in the late fall after the first snow falls, a friend was going through some old pictures he had taken in 1999. He came across a picture of a monument he had found but at the time did not understand the implication... After he shared it with me I was shocked yet not surprised in that it was located in the heart of this place where I was always told the Spanish never were...

Since then another friend shared with me another set of old photos sent to him by another, this within a week of the first photo and it is in the same area where the Spanish never were...

I patiently waited... not... all winter long watching from my front door as the snow declined, after several failed attempts due to very large snow drifts, we finally made it, Thank You Dave Holman for your persistence and patents. We still have the first monument I was shown to find, but I think we are getting closer to that day...

It would seem, not only were the Spanish in these mountains and one has to ask why? and as it would seem according to the science of Lichenometry, (Crustose Lichen) their likely occupation of this area was near 350 to 400 years ago, and this may be a conservative estimate, why does the academic world still insist that Escalante of 1776 who was merely following a very old trail, was the first Spaniard to enter into the mountains of Utah.

Following is the pictures of my Protege's and I, and of these monuments, made by Spaniards who were not here...

Yes, that is a silver dollar, not a quarter...

This area is covered with limestone

I can't wait to see why they were up there and built these monuments....

Compared to a quarter, the rule of thumb is, the area of a dime as compared to a single spore, 
equals approximately 100 years

My little Bug and I
The most interesting thing about this monument of which I have never seen, is that it is hollow...

Mind melting with the monument checking for Kenworthy properties and 
Ancient Alien radio waves... Step aside Giorgio...

Absolutely no beer cans... not one, anywhere...

Was this built to look like an Alien space craft?... Ancient Astronaut theorists say yes...
