Well, you certainly stirred up "interest", and now you will have to contend with some VERY FRUSTRATED folks since you suddenly got very secretive!!!! :rolleyes:

Thank Gawd that at least you shared with David---------I look forward to hearing about whatever you guys/gals find--------and if not, a contract may be issued on you, or at least the black helecoptor boys will be sent.

No matter what it is you id'ed, it is fascinating, to say the least. I got to see the original post, tho briefly, and that did it for me-------has to be checked out, for sure.

Jack and David---if this is for real let me know if you could take another person and when the trip would be.

So, is the security of the "place" that important that the picture can't be shared here? If it exists, what steps would be taken to secure it? Or, would a select few keep its existence to themselves.

I almost wish I hadn't started reading this post after the pictures were removed.

DavidK is THE Baja trekker and historian on The BajaNomad!

His politics are irrelevant and his genuine love for Baja and his personal explorer's history are for real. He can be trusted!

Sounds like you have already made the security check and contact that you are requiring with David. Best of Luck! I hope it turns out to be what you are hoping for.

Sorry Barry, but the only reason I posted at all was to try to get somebody to go to the site and see if I'm just crazy or if it's actually there.

I haven't heard from David K. I'm very interested to know if he can see what I am seeing at the site. By now he knows that what I posted earlier is not a joke and is really just a small fraction of what I think is actually there...and what he DOESN'T know is that the stuff I sent him is actually a fraction of what I --think-- is in the area around it. I'm waiting to hear if he is buying into what I sent already before I send him coordinates and descriptions of a feature that will completely blow his mind :)

Trust me, the stuff I haven't sent him yet makes finding Santa Isabel a minor news item.

Hmmmmmmmmm, now I am a little suspicious-------sounds "to good to be true". Only time will tell----------

David K can be trusted, as well as Jack Swords---------and I agree with all that ToneArt says above.

This IS exciting!!!

I couldn't agree more. That's why everyone who's seen the pics, including myself, says the same thing: "How can we get some on-the-ground shots to see if this is for real?"

Might be worth it to do a fly-over and get some good photos from the air before you do any ground work

Yep, but I don't have the $$$ for a charter. If you do, I'd love to see what you can find. Otherwise, this can be a single-day trip for David or anybody else in San Diego and you'd get better photos from the ground.

Because I don't want somebody finding out where the site is before it is verified and the authorities are contacted.

It's not like it's some secret spy op. If you're antsy to see what's there, just think what it's been like for me sitting here 26 hrs away calling Archaeology professors and news agencies and not even finding anybody interested in looking at the images.

At least you guys care enough to want to see if I'm crazy, or blind, or right, or whatever, and I do appreciate that...but seriously, archaeological sites should be taken care of, and I'd feel irresponsible if my post led somebody else to loot the site, if it's even really there and not a trick of the eye or something.

Please, be patient, or try and talk David into showing you. It's not like I'm the only one with the coordinates anymore.

BTW, I haven't heard from David since I sent him the KML file...anybody know if he got it?

I'm in Sn Felipe and available with 4x4, camera, GPSr etc. And 11GB of satellite shots of northern Baja on the computer in my 4x4.

Think David is working today and he will respond after work.

edited to correctly spell David

DK is most likely working at a job site today...he'll get back to you for sure. He does with everyone here.

Could you re-post the Google map without the coordinates? I have an imaging software that can "see" better...actually highlights man made items.

I highly doubt there is any secret site out there with something to loot. Honestly, this isn't 1946, it's 2011. You're not the first person to use Google Maps.

I think we are all guilty of being tricked by someone with their first post today!

If this was a trick, you would have heard one of two things from David k: either I never sent him the coords, or the thing in the pic wasn't at the coords.

I assure you I did send him the coordinates and the thing in the pic is at the coordinates along with a whole lot of other oddly man-made-looking old-looking stuff. Like I said ALL ALONG, I have ONLY looked at satellite imagery of this stuff myself, there may not be anything there at all, but there may be. Just be patient, you'll probably all be packing your stuff for a trip with David tomorrow or you'll be loading your weapons for a hunting trip for a codo tomorrow (yes, Vandenburg did finally tell me what that meant). Either way, it should be exciting for me :)

Whatever. If you try to start selling timeshares at this "place" then I will know you are full of caca. As it stands, I only think you are.

What's a "codo"???

Vandenberg did not include me in "the know".

This is exciting enough that I am more than willing to give you the benefit of the doubt, so carry on. I agree with Lou that David is most probably on a job, and will respond tonight.

Codo means elbow in Spanish, but also means "cheapskate".

Not sure what David was referring to though. The new poster name sounds like elbow (elbeau).
