    One of my Favorite shows is Expedition Unknown, i saw a good one last night about a guy Byron Preiss who started a big treasure hunt where he buried 12 treasure boxes in parks around America about 40 years or so ago and only 2 of them have ever been found.......... i'm ordering the book off Amazon. I love treasure hunts and this seems like one of the biggest ones, the show is hosted by Josh Gates.... I was curious if anyone else has heard about this ?

    I saw a program on this a few years ago. 12 boxes buried in 12 different parks across the United States, only two boxes have been found
    So ten boxes remain.
    So according to Google and Wikipedia the 12 boxes were allegedly hurried in 12 different parks across America.
    1 box was found in Chicago
    The second Cleveland.
    There are probably hundred if not thousands of parks these things can be at.
    With time and research you can eliminate a number parks. Cities keep records on parks when they open or where built
    A person could probably eliminate a great number of parks that came along after 1982.
    My theory is Bryon Pressis buried the boxes in parks within.driving distance of his home.
    While I think some of the boxes might still be recovered, I think others never will be.
    Simply because .parks come and go, construction of new building and playground equipment, tennis and basketball courts, skate parks

    Tune in next week. They said, this week, that a "fan of the show" became obsessed with The Secret, and supposedly knows the location of one of the remaining treasure caches.

    It's the first time that the show has actually been there when anything was found.
    Good season finale though
