Q & A with Chicago Ron…

Ron Guinazzo is no stranger to this blog and certainly no stranger to anyone who is a treasure hunter. Chicago Ron is a ten on the treasure hunting scale, having been a star on the TV series Dig Wars and with finds that continue to amaze.

The following dispatch from John Howland comes via the Mayfly Pub, his home away from home and was obviously penned upon his arrival there. I say this only because I’ve seen way too many that were written later on after a round or two, or three or….. Continue reading

Ah For the Good Ole days…

No doubt I am playing right field when it comes to treasure hunting today, in particular its presence and narrative on social media.
