  1. Kellyco Metal Detectors is offering a $10,000 reward to the person that brings us an interview with the individual(s) that found Fenn’s Treasure! As a pilot and knowing Fenn was a pilot, dead reckoning came to mind, so we first thought to draw intersecting lines to locate the treasure where X really does mark the spot (in spirit). We didn’t see the clues as part of following a linear path, but more creating a drawing on the map that would lead us to Fenn’s Treasure. There were also double meanings to what we saw as clues, which strengthened our resolve. You don’t need the history to solve
  2. Certainy looks to be. I bet some Spaniard was mighty ticked off to lose that 500 years ago.
  3. I'm pretty sure the boss would have a fit if we just unboxed any detector that we like and started hunting in our free time. But we definitely try out every detector that passes through our door ... and maybe "misplace" one if it's especially nice. I've said we ought to just keep our whole inventory, fan out, and pool all the treasure we find together, but I'm admittedly not a business expert.
  4. Meet Shelby. As the newest member of our Customer Experience Team, Shelby has been with Kellyco for just over a year. She is a new detectorist that finds time to hunt in between raising a toddler and a new puppy. Shelby’s favorite find also comes from the Team’s participation in the annual Boy Scout hunt at Camp Lanoche in Paisley, Florida. As in Leilani’s Treasure Find story, the Kellyco team went out detecting to celebrate another successful year of helping the Scouts at their annual camp. Camp Lanoche was established in 1950 and has been used many times a year by a multitude of Boy Sc
  5. I remember my dad swatting my uncle's hand away because he was under the impression that you're supposed to "preheat the flue" by sticking a burning piece of newspaper up the chimney. Was always kind of glad I'm not related to Jerry.
  6. Crackers, you were just one cake short of digging up a whole wedding!
  7. Western Australia was the home of multiple gold rushes between 1885 and 1893. And the region continues to produce copious amounts of gold to this day. Gold mining is the third-largest commodity sector in the region today, after iron ore and petroleum, generating nearly A$12 billion worth of value every year. Indeed, there wasn’t much reason to live in Western Australia before the discovery of gold in the region. Before the first Western Australian Gold Rush, the primary industries in the area were wool, wheat, and meat. The discovery of gold dramatically changed the history of the region
  8. Aaron had been working a permission with his first detector for a while and decided it was time to purchase a more versatile detector. After purchasing a new Equinox 800 form Kellyco, he decided to start fresh on the property and go back over everything. The permission owner’s family had owned the property since the mid-1800s when they immigrated to America from Sweden. He had been collecting things found on the property to make a birthday gift for the owner since everything found at some point belonged to one of his ancestors. On Aaron’s first hunt with his Equinox, he found something t
  9. Daniel Jurgan had been itching to get out of the house. He, like all of us, had been under a Stay at Home order, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He was itching to get out with his Nokta Makro Anfibio 19 and find some treasure. Shortly after the restrictions had been lifted, Daniel took it to a park near his home to follow guidelines and avoid large groups of people while also being able to get his detecting fix. As the lone person in the park, Daniel found a few items of note: a Brownie ring and a 1943 mercury dime. He was fairly happy with his spoils but he wasn’t satisfied. A storm was br
  10. That's funny, I never wondered why but characters in old cartoons very often took big bites out of bricks of chewing tobacco with stars on them. Now I know why! Are we doing tobacco poems? There was an old man And he had a wooden leg No tobackey could he borrow No tobackey could he beg So save all your pennies And save all your rocks And you'll always have tobackey In your old tobackey box
  11. America has the California Gold Rush. It’s equivalent in Canada is the Klondike Gold Rush. All told, this brought 100,000 prospectors into the region, which was not sunny California, but the frozen tundra of the Canadian Yukon over the course of three years between 1896 and 1899, with the bulk coming in 1897 and 1898. Gold was first found in the Yukon by miners who had been working the region on August 16, 1896. Word quickly spread to Seattle and San Francisco, leading to the massive stampede of prospectors who arrived the next year. And while many arrived, this was not the free-for-all
  12. Yeah, no, I'm kind of glad I don't have to look for little alligators when I'm scanning beaches in the Midwest. One time an old lady called the cops because she thought I was ... I'm not sure what she thought I was doing, to be honest, but at least she was incapable of biting off my fingers.
  13. I like that for the umpteen mil you also get a nice little two bedroom. I wonder what percentage of the land price the rambler constitutes?
  14. It’s no surprise to anyone who knows anything about history that gold was a big draw for colonists coming to the New World. One of the earliest gold rushes that brought people across the ocean and attracted the attention of major world powers was the Brazilian Gold Rush. At this time Brazil was an integral part of the Portuguese Empire. Back in 1690 when the Brazilian Gold Rush kicked off, Portugal was not a small nation almost surrounded by Spain, but a major world power in possession of one of the largest empires in the world. This is largely thanks to their early efforts at overseas ex
