More work on the treasure hunt as we close in on vacation date. Pictured is the inspiration pieces behind our treasure hunt:

The Goonies map and copper bone were purchased in Astoria from the Jail/museum during our road trip down south last year. The doubloon is an on going project that I have made from scratch. It has been sitting buried in the garden for the last 2 months to create a bit more corrosion and patina on the surface to get an aged look.

I have been creating my own version of the map that will correlate to the campground we are staying at this year. But I don’t want to post pictures yet, as my nephews may actually see visit my webpage from time to time, and I don’t want any more spoilers on the net. The one thing I am willing to share at this point is a pirates poem I wrote for part of the whole plan:

Shark Tooth Vinney, was the last too see

That Peg-Leg Pete, had a skeleton key
The pair were searching, until they did sink
For that cursed diamond, we’ve all heard is pink
Now some have said, they had a watery clue
That was bound in hemp, deep under the blue
Twenty nine nights, the moon not to be seen
Pete dove into the black, whilst shimmering green
Caution to the wind, Pete got himself burned
Thus he entered the Black Forrest, but never returned.
