I sure hope this is not one of those shaggy dog stories designed to drag you along to the end and then nothing. The object had better be pretty good with all this hype to it's eventual find.

Oh ye of little faith, no this is not a shaggy waggy dog story, though my dogs did become the true heros of last night's story. The loud bang however, was just me, hitting the bottom from the sheer stress of this whole thing and that eerie scream in the middle of the night was my psyche shattering into smithereens. Which is why I plan to switch to the Maze technique, when entering the maze, keep your left hand sliding along all walls and outcroppings, both vertically and horizontally as you make your way along the horizon until you return to your starting point.

Godspeed.

I was going along the lines of this: Rosebud

Do you have that much stuff in your Airstream. I think I do.

Hello,

Well it is not Rosebud, but it was and still is a tangible item. As I was running out of time getting ready to go to the hospital, I decide to take money I had received for a painting of mine and tuck it away in the trailer. I remember it was just a few hundred dollars, placed into a plain envelope. I wanted to put it somewhere that was in an obvious place, but not where someone that might break in would be thinking to look. At first I almost tucked it into a cookbook on the counter in a stand, then thought, what if I never use that book or I give it to the person who had loaned it to me without thinking...So I tucked it somewhere else. That is the small portion of time that still eludes me, I have gone over the places that were discussed and still it has not turned up. I still remember thinking later, I put it where money would go and for some reason thinking it was a funny sort of pun. However, I have a feeling that one day it will show up when it is least expected and I will be happy to share some of it with the person or persons who came closest. In the meantime, many of you made my slow recovery so much more tolerable, and had me laughing at the ingeniousness of your hiding places. I will do my best to send out some of my new art work to those I enjoyed the most. Thank you for trying to help me find my lost "Rosebud." The idea for the contest came to me when I figured I needed some help, but then a friend was worried if I flat out said, "Hey, I got a bunch of money here in my trailer and can't find it." I might possibly have some late night visitors who located my trailer and decided to scoop it all up for themselves. Fortunately that has not been the case, even friends who came and tried to find it, clues and all, went away empty handed. Sorry for the stalemate ending, I truly thought this one person had it all figured out and it turned out to be a big evening full of hot air…



Carol

Good, Lord; that stuff is happening to me. I hid a peticure gift certificate, a Christmas present to my DW, and still have not found it! She still gets a peticure....maybe two. Just look forward to the day you 'discover' the money in a pocket....and then it will be found treasure.

FreshAir,

Did you look at the big list that was compiled on this thread. Maybe you should try using it for you Pedicure gift certificate.....

Good luck,
Hope it works better for you,
I am still trying to find mine....

How about in the gaucho arm?

I know what's goin on here. Carol really lost something and figured the easy way to find it is to have us do the work.

I know I am a little late but maybe these places will help:

Did you check inside the stove or microwave? Or inside the cabinet the heater thermostat is located? "Money to burn"

How about under the flooring (rugs/loose tiles/etc.)? I used to hide money in flat envelopes there sometimes.

Carol, your memory may be confused about what large container you put it in. It could be in your truck or your house (you do live somewhere besides the trailer, don't you?).
