Why would you do this with your own treasure?
I’ve been trading gold, silver, diamonds & antiques for over 23 years. I am a jeweler by trade apprenticed under my father since I was a just a child. Although I enjoyed being in business for myself and have been blessed serving our wonderful customers, I’ve discovered that I was never truly happy.
This epiphany occurred after being forced to shut down my business for several months during Covid-19. At first I was going stir crazy being at home with nothing but time on my hands that I’ve never had before. I began adventuring outdoors up and down pure Michigan with my fiancé. We went through woods, rivers, streams, mountains and waterfalls even got married!
I have buried thousands upon thousands of dollars of gold, silver, diamonds & antiques in various locations in Michigan from the bottom to the upper peninsula. I want families across land to experience the Quest and experience the adventure of a lifetime!

Why is there a fee?
Well, I could have sold everything I owned and retired but what fun would that be? There would be no adventure quest for anyone. I had the time of my life hiding the treasure but even more excited about hearing the stories of those who are about to venture out to seek it. Even more so the ones who find it! The small registration fee helps me maintain a living and provide for my family. I have put out my entire life investment into the ground with an ideal hope and dream to give all fun, adventure, bonding with each other and the memories that will last a lifetime. There are also administrative costs associated in running the Quest, and it helps us to maintain those as well.
