    I’m going to bookmark this one! Treasure hunting sounds like a blast. We always talk about going down and hunting for diamonds, but we still haven’t actually managed to get down there.

    If I put this on my things to do before I die list, it’s your fault.

    It sounds like so much fun!

    *smartass alert*

    Why go to Oregon for Truffles when you can just go to a good chocolatier?

    heh heh Het

    To be honest, I think doing some of this would be fun. But then, so would spending time in a chocolate store! *grin*

    “Where ya going rhi?”
    “To hunt Thunder eggs!!!”
    for some reason i keep wanting to change it to thunderbird eggs.
    wonderful list and wouldn’t it be fun to be on a treasure hunting trip that went to all these places?

    Lesley- I think it’d be fun if I didn’t have to take the girls. They’re too young to enjoy it.

    Milady- It’ll be on my list too.

    Noladawn- Did you find anything?

    Susan- Why am I not surprised? I now dub thee, Chocolate Queen.

    Rhian- When the kids are older, I’d like to take a solo vacation and hit all of these places.

    I metal detect for a hobby, mostly because you never know what you will dig up.

    I’m mostly interested in the older coins, tokens and jewelry for the history it represents.

    I would get a thrill out of doing everything on your list. It would be a thrill just finding these rare items.
