    In 1933 gold was outlawed so to buy whiskey in 1935 with gold would be highly unlikely

    It’s a very wide area that these kegs could be out there. There are 2 or 3 treasure legends that are less than 50 miles apart from each other and both involve alot of Gold coins. Soo the real story here is where do you search and what to assume and where these 2 soliders did with the Kegs. We all can try finding it but the heartache does come with one thing. Yep. dangerous area’s around rock ledges out croppings. I mean this rim area has got to be easily 70 miles in diameter and then you’ve got private land to consider also. Lets play devils advocate here. Nobodies found it yet? Greg Hawk said that he’s searched Kehl Canyon and Miller Canyon up and down for this treasure and hasn’t found anything. Soo chances are your looking at private property that it’s probably on. Ok,lets talk about one thing? Thats alot of Gold dollars and you’d think that just one gold dollar somebody would have found in the area and just said and proclaimed HEY I FOUND A GOLD DOLLAR. Wouldn’t you think atleast one gold dollar would be found or somebody is obsessed with finding something with this treasure legend to make a note of it somehow that it’s been documented? We all want to pretend it’s out there but your talking about some places in rim country thats very steep and dangerous. Yeah I’ve got finding gold fever just like you guys but you would think that somebody should of found it by now and proclaimed their findings bc that’s alot of gold coins.

    Great story! Never heard of that one. I’m leaning towards the 1865 version.
