Nope, there is something hidden in the sand. a clever way to ward off would be thieves. Gotta dig deep into the sand

you have two options.
1. dig until you find gold
2. dig until you can crawl in the hole and bring back some egg foo young.

either way you're still digging.
if it's going too slow, rent a backhoe.

Keep digging. The yellow sand is used to keep wood from deteriorating. Now I really think you're onto something. Seriously.

Holy shit, I cant believe you found the yellow sand! I thought it was myth? I think you had better get a hold of someone from the historical society in your area and have them come out and look at it, you could really be onto something!

Where is this house located at? My uncle works for a relic company who specializes in recovery and purchase of old heirlooms, coins and other old items. I was talking to him about this and he said a few years back there was another big discoveryj made like this in the D-town area. He said it netted almost 3.2 million when it went to auction since there were a bunch of old spanish coins in it. They used the Granite to make it harder for it to be detected with the Stick test. I guess it was a device to see if something was hidden in the ground. The granite absorbed the waves like normal ground would, it read normal and no one would investigate it. The yellow sand was also used to help draw the surface moisture away from the wood underneith it. Yellow sand was commonly place 18-24 inches thick ontop of the hidden crate with the goods in it without the sand the items would be all shitty and rotted in a few years. He told me to let him know as soon as you find it. When you do get to it gimme a call and I will get with him on the contents and address.

pictures are probably too big to host them here. Shrink them or host them somewhere else and link.

You should be glad you don't make a living as a treasure hunter because you suck at it.

Really, this makes complete sense. Burry a concrete box filled with yellow sand in the middle of no where for no reason whatsoever.

Try again, there is something in there! Use your noggin.
