    Default Congratulations!

    Hey, Evan. Way to go! How did you feel when you pulled that token out? Your Dad is very proud of you, as he should be.

    Well done, starson!

    Your intuition about searching one more time and digging a little deeper than those before you is the stuff of Trove legend!!!

    Brilliant!

    It's like that notion that maybe the treasure chest is just ONE INCH DEEPER...then...thunk! the dulcet tone of spade striking wood...

    Good job!

    Hey, starson, I'm curious about some details that maybe you can share with us, with your father's permission. Can you describe in detail what you had to do to find the token in the knothole? Specifically, with your hand.

    Did you take stuff out? Move stuff around? What was the stuff like?

    Did you actually have to scrape away at stuff to make the token ring appear?

    It was reported that there was 2" - 3" inches of sawdust/debris in the hole. Is that your take on it too?

    What did you do differently in your second visit to the knothole that led to success?

    Anyway, some of us are very curious why the searchers that checked that tree before you walked away empty handed and you got the prize. Any insight would be appreciated and might help us in our future hunts!

    Thanks!

    well first of all to find the token I had to dig thru 2-3 inches of debris. I do not know what it was but mostly it was dirt. The second time I went to the knothole instead of looking right in the middle main part i looked on the left hand side. there was a little edge there that the token was on.

    Thank your dad for taking you right after school that day, otherwise someone else would have gotten it!

    Nice job, I'm very happy for you

    Persistence pays off; way to trust those insticts!
    Over 1,000 miles travelled in search of 1 token.

    Tokens found: zero. (no, I don't expect I'll have to edit this)
