Based on a true story of: Maximillian's Missing Millions
3 June 2008 | by (Concord, New Hampshire U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This is based upon a true story of "15 wagon loads of gold worth over $10 million buried under the pile in the sand in Castle Gap, Mexico" as I did write about over at Rick's "The Scenery of the Ponderosa" website* for us BONANZA fans.

The website* for this is: http://www.voy.com/75280/ My exact post of this info is at: http://www.voy.com/75280/35297.html Anybody interested in forming an expedition to go IN SEARCH OF...this please count me in.

Yours truly, "MrTideman".

P.S. The story was published in the July 1978 issue of "Lost Treasure" and can be found re-typed on the internet here at:
