Tea for Treasure

Sunday, January 28th, 2018

Tea for treasure is paramount in some countries.

Daylight found us on the curb equipment packed for the day’s journey. Our SUV arrived and we piled in and were off like a herd of turtles. We might have driven 4 blocks when the chorus rang out in unison, “CHAI”! The SUV pulled back to the curb and everyone was getting out?

A very ornate teapot sat steaming on the side of the cafe. We filled half the tables with our assemblage. Sugar was passed around by the cube and a very small glass was filled with an aromatic brew that that locals called chai. It was delicious! When in Turkey you do as the Turks do.

Chai is not just tea.

Chai is the morning board meeting, the greeting of friends and fellow neighbors, the day planner, the after breakfast drink, and the following goal just one hour away. Chai is served at the fruit stand beside the road, the cafe, the restaurant, every home and business that is open to the public.

Chai became the excuse for a bathroom break, a hello to a long not seen friend, the local imam, or just because. This wonderful custom hasn’t reached other nations to the extent of Turkish custom as not many others have the method and tea leaves together to gain the same popularity.

I met wonderful new friends over a glass of chai. Thank you Turkey.

Turkey Treasure Hunting Long Range Detector

Treasure Hunting with a Long Range Detector in Turkey

The air-flight over the “pond” went through England, then Germany and landed in Turkey.
The crossroads of trade since the beginning of time is next door to the birthplace of Democracy in Greece. Istanbul and Constantinople are one and the same my history buff son advised me as I prepared for the trip.

This area of the globe has the longest period of hiding treasure of any other place on the map. (It also has the longest period of treasure finding, looting and merchandising treasure than any other place on the planet.)

Past kings built tombs (small hills) as their eternal monument to their wealth and empire. The tombs are scattered over the countryside and seen from great distances. The Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, Assyrians, Byzantine and Ottoman Empires were some of the more notable conquerors of this famous land. Some kings built elaborate crypts as a tomb for their treasures. Wealthy nobles spent fortunes on a sarcophagus for their eternal resting spot. Much treasure was buried with them.

Tomb raiders and grave robbers have been busy for thousands of years using every technology available to them to find the secreted treasures of the dead.

In all the countries that I have operated the long range detector, I never seen as many “dug holes” as I did in Turkey.

The food was fresh, delightful and wonderful. The people were gracious, kind and generous even though the economics there have been depressed for a long time. Even though the Turkish residents knew I wasn’t Muslim, they invited me to Mosque with them 5 times a day for their daily prayers and were amazed that a non-Muslim would agree to pray with them in a Mosque.

I had a previous meeting in Dallas TX with my client who happened to be a US naturalized citizen from Turkey who had lived in the US for over 25 years. In our meeting I explained that I didn’t want to “hunt close to Syria, my fee had no guarantee as less than one percent of known treasure stories are still to be found. The reason is simple: the person that buried or hid the treasure had no intentions of you or I finding their treasure. THE EARTH WAS THEIR BANK, period. They had full intentions of digging up their treasure or having their representative dig it up for them AND THEY DID!!!

The prospective client said he guaranteed me that his treasure spots had not been dug and that I would want to stay permanently in Turkey to hunt treasure.

I assured Mr. X that I had been all over the world and the percentages for treasure that had been written about, televised or known in the area for many years was less than one percent chance that it was still there.

Mr. X had an entourage of contacts, a government secretary, a ruhani, “a seer”, business men, a military officer, an imam, a mayor, numerous groups of men that the US Government said were unfriendly to US citizens and many “men of the night”. We slept in their homes, summer homes, mountain cottages and condos.

WE HAVE NEVER BEEN TREATED AS NICE AS THE HOSPITALITY We received IN TURKEY!

One by one the treasure targets were debunked, dug and confirmed that the treasures were gone. Many dug holes showed that the treasure had once been there. Only one target was confirmed in 2 weeks that once again proved the equipment was accurate. (The person that had us check was the person who had buried the treasure, knew where it was and how much that was there.)

Unbeknownst to us, Mr. X had solicited our fees from all of these wonderful people that we met and GUARANTEED them we would find their treasure!

We never agree to contract to search for any treasure without a written contract with all those that put forth money.

We never guarantee that we will find anything. If you want assurances that the equipment works, bury your cash, jewels or metal and call us after 360 days. We will tell you what it is, how deep it is buried and approximately the amount of mass that is there.

Mr. X became very agitated as the two weeks were running out and no treasure was coming out of the ground. Finally Mr. X drove within 25 miles of the Syrian border, and demanded that we give him back our fee or he could not guarantee our lives, He said, “you will give back the money or these people will kill you.”

We were seven hours from the airport in Istanbul, without a map, could not speak a word of Turkish.
The conundrum was perplexing, how did this happen? A call to the English speaking government secretary, calmed the locals and we were driven directly to the airport after returning all our fees to Mr. X.
There was an attempted coup in the country soon thereafter. We don’t know if Mr. X made it back to the US or not but officials were made aware or his extortion.

This story is true, Mr. X has not been identified as we believe his justice awaits him in a higher court than ours.

Unfortunately none of our hosts could speak English, we hope that this story will be relayed to them so they will know that we still value their friendship and hope we can meet again without Mr. X in the future. We sincerely hope that Mr. X. gave all of our hosts all of their money back.
