Geocache Description:

***The cache is not at the posted coordinates***

Any similarity between this cache and the movie, "National Treasure" is purely intentional.


Alas, it has fallen upon your shoulders to locate the vast treasure that has eluded hunters for thousands of years. The treasure has been fought over by many multiple civilizations and many men have lost their lives searching for or defending their claim to this bounty. But the secrets may have been revealed in a series of coded messages. If only you can outwit the scriveners of these codes, the treasure could possibly be yours. But do not assume the treasure even exists. Most sane people consider the treasure to be a mere myth. Are you sane? Or are you powerless to resist the calling of the LOCAL TREASURE?

This cache is definitely not for the faint of heart. You should expect a long and difficult journey if you are to undertake the hunt for this treasure. Maybe you will find something like a Meerschaum pipe from which to take a blood impression. Maybe you will find secret writings hidden on the Declaration of Independence. Maybe you will find a brick with clues. Maybe you will find a secret vault. Maybe you will even find some treasure. Or maybe you won't find any of these things! But only by following the clues will you ever be sure......
