    Yes, I don't believe so. I plan to conduct a serious search myself someday, if only for a few hours. OJ

    Laura & her hub went in there yesterday (I think) Paul, and has not checked in yet. Give'r another few weeks, and if no word by then, we can presume she found it, cashed in, and moved to Borneo.

    Here's proof positive that I'm in Borneo. This was taken this morning while Ralph & I were hunting monkeys for breakfast and there's no monkeys in Roseyfelt!
    (and no comments from the Peanut Gallery about the mustache, it's a post-menopausal hormonal thing)

    There's a really good book available called; "The Lost Dutchman Mine Of Jacob Waltz" Part one, "The Golden Dream" written by T.E.Glover,PhD.
    He's done extensive research and poses several interesting theories. One theory is that there really isn't a Lost Dutchman Mine, instead it was a story concocted by Jacob Waltz and his partner to cover up the pilfering of gold from The Tip Top Mine. Evidentially, Waltz's partner worked at Tip Top.
    There are several maps in the book, one of which is the same one being sold to tourists at the Lost Dutchman Museum.
    T.E.Glover has also written Part 2, "The Holmes Manuscript" which is supposed to include Jacob Waltz's death-bed confessions.
    I haven't read Part 2 yet (can't find a bookstore in Borneo selling it)

    Forget the books. The Lost Dutchman Mine is really in West Texas. I will prove this tomorrow. For a paultry two thousand, I just purchased a map to the mine from a fella at the watering hole at Lukenbach, Texas. As soon as I can drive, which will probably be in the morning, I will prove all of you folks wrong, and be an extremely wealthy man. I'll keep you updated.....Speedy
