We hid 4 items in 4 US locations, and sold an e-book with clues to be deciphered which led to those items. The launch was in November 2020, the final coin found February 2021
Our second Hunt traveled to 6 US cities in 6 consecutive weeks in the Summer of 2022, in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Austin, Washington DC, Asheville, and Milwaukee.
We're working on something special, and hope to have news to announce real soon. We've been quiet for a while, but we're ready to make some noise again!
Our e-book was released in late November, and the first chapter was not deciphered until just before Christmas. Pittsburgh artist Beth Hovanec phoned her friend Nancy Zitko in Las Vegas, who found the Silver Z under a park bench in Eldorado Park.
The Kneisser Family all worked on decoding clues in the Great US Treasure Hunt, finally cracking a code which led Tony and Margo to Railyard Park in Santa Fe, NM, where they found a set of tiny angel wings.
World class crossword constructor (LA Times, WSJ, etc) Kristian House traveled from New York to Boise to find a token hidden under a children's slide at Lion's Park in Nampa.
With an ice storm bearing down on both Dallas and Nashville, Lauren Roberts in Dallas found a friend in Nicholette Rock in Nashville, who raced to Pinkerton Park at Franklin, TN, where she found the Griffin token taped under a drinking fountain.
Tony Kneisser, the best puzzle-solving truck driver in the US, became the first, and so far the only, repeat winner in the Hunt, driving from the East Coast to Las Vegas so he could be in position when the clues were released. TWOpeat!
Hunters were told they could find a coin within 50 miles of the Hollywood sign, and we took it to the limit, hiding the coin in Mile Square Park in Fountain Valley, where Jennifer Rao beat the second place team by mere minutes.
Jeremy Dobbins and the Aultman Family pulled into the parking lot at Stone Hill Park in Pflugerville, and Jeremy's hustle paid off for him and his team, as he found the coin under an ordinary picnic table.
Jeremy Lombardo and Awad Bilal took off from separate locations for Rock Creek Park, DC, without realizing they were playing for the same team, and arrived at Miller Cabin simultaneously, where the coin was hidden under a stone step.
Great TV news coverage from WLOS Asheville brought over 2,000 new registrants in 12 hours, and 14 separate groups to Leah Chiles Park within 60 minutes of each other, but Nasrin Azari beat them all, finding the coin under the red slide.
Bob Harmon is a local, but still had to drive over an hour to position himself near Milwaukee, and he ended up being the sixth and final Finder of The Great US Treasure Hunt 2022, at Wirth Park in Brookfield, Wisconsin.
We've got something special planned after taking too much time off from planning treasure hunts, and we hope to have some news for you real soon!
