Howdy Larry and welcome to the forum. Glad to have you here. I wanted
to suggust that you check out the FILES section on this forum for your
state (Indiana)in order to get a few leads. There are two Indiana
files with a number of lost treasure stories and lists of old ghost
towns that you may want to check out. Look on the menu to your left
and click on FILES. When FILES opens scroll down to Indiana and click
on the Indiana file. Inside there are currently two MS Word docs that
you are free to d/l or print. This should get you moving along and
hopefully you'll find something of interest close by. There are
several web sites and publications out there on THing and with time
you'll learn which ones you suit you best. Also check out Lost
Treasure magazine at http://www.losttreasure.com.
(I'm prejudise on
this publication as I write for the magazine) I'd also check out
This is Floyd Mann's web site who owns
this forum. If you have any questions feel free to post them here as
their are plenty of old school THer's here that are always willing to
help someone who just got bit by the bug. Good luck Larry and remember
to let us know what cool stuff you find.
