Welcome to

The Adventure Bookstore

Important Note for later in 2017!

The Adventure Bookstore and the entire website is currently being remodeled. We are in the process of creating a whole new exciting lineup of interactive, multi-media products.

These new products will be both fun and highly instructive. They will include life-like simulations and games designed to help you learn faster and easier. We are using state-of-the-art technology to do all of this. Many of the products will have a free version so you can "test drive" before purchasing.

Most of all, our mission is to help you become free and independent of "the system" as quickly as possible. We want to help you live the life of fun, adventure and flexibility that you deserve. Here is some of what we will be offering to you:

1. We will help you to quickly find & acquire more gold and treasure than you ever have before. You should stack (hold on to) these assets for the future.

2. We will suggest specific portable, freedom machine income systems that allow you to live and work from anywhere in the world. You can depend on your income system to pay your monthly bills and to pay for your lifestyle.

3. We will help you to prepare for the difficult and turbulent economic times that are just around the corner. These preparations will help to keep you safe and comfortable during changing times.

Thanks for your patience as we

get up and running this year!

These articles are both fun and informative to read. However, even more importantly, they show you the reality of how much gold is really out there to be found.  (120 pages) is a worldwide leader in online payment services

This e-course takes you by the hand from A - Z when it comes to finding lost coins, gold jewelry and caches. Of course Research is where it all starts. If you are not regularly swinging your search coil directly over the good stuff, you won't be nearly as successful as you could be, even with a great detector.

I started metal detecting in 1966 in Michigan with a Heath Kit model I built. I literally recovered 10's of thousands of silver coins and pieces of gold jewelry before I was 18 years old. Metal detecting quickly became my passion and I loved every minute of it.

Let me help you learn where to go, how to hunt and what to do with those beautiful treasures once they are safely out of the ground.

Learn exactly how and where to metal detect for gold nuggets. This e-course teaches you how to discover the very best "coarse" gold-bearing rivers (both ancient & new) to search. What's more, you'll learn where in those places to look.

You'll also need the right recovery tools to turn those hot signals into tangible recoveries. Once you get the hang of this, you can pay for your detector and then some, in pretty short order.

The cover photo is of me in the desert near Quartzite, Arizona. I have recovered some great gold nuggets in the Western USA, Brazil & Ecuador. Most of them were collectible and worth much more than the price of gold.

You need the right detector, know how to run it and be in the right place to enjoy success!

You can run this "gold buying" method as a business almost anywhere in the world. The bigger the city, the more opportunity there is for volume. That said, I have had good success buying "junk gold", even in small cities.

To be successful, you need to know how and where to "put the word out". Then you need to know exactly how to quickly and correctly calculate the value of what you are buying. Finally, the negotiation process makes all the difference.

With this proprietary method that I have developed, once practiced properly, you should be able to buy at least 1/2 oz. of gold per day at half of world spot price, if you are diligent and working full-time at it.

It never ceases to blow me away how so many people either lose or forget their gold valuables in their home, their hotel room and in parking lots. Actually, I have a list of about 25 of the most likely places people are apt to lose their "goodies". If you know where and how to look, you can almost always come home with something of value.

Now, I will share an amazing secret with you that takes all of this to a much higher level! I have studied this phenomena for years and it continues to work for me daily. Unfortunately, I can not go into too much detail here, but I will send you in the right direction. Reticular Activating System.

Because I have trained my brain in a certain way, I easily find lost coins, jewelry and cash wherever I go, and that is without even trying. It happens as if automatically. Look it up. Do some research. See if I am not sharing a great secret with you.

Better yet, buy this e-course and get busy finding your own treasures right away!

This may be my absolute favorite method of finding gold. I love it because I can go on a day hike with only a small backpack and come home 1/4 oz. richer almost every time. My very best day was nearly 3 ounces.

As with all of the other methods, for this to work really well, you need to know exactly where to go and how to search. Once you have your favorite spots and know what you are doing, this is better than an ATM card from any bank. You are totally free! You never have to worry about money again.

This is an art and a science. It is not super easy to learn. It takes time and patience to get it right. With that said, spending that time was one of the best investments I have ever made.

I am going to be brutally honest here. This is definitely not my favorite gold finding method. It can be dark, dangerous and boring. My own track record shows 2 substantial successes out of about 300 attempts. The 300 attempts took more than 10 years! Not great odds.

However, it takes only one good result to make a lot of money if the situation is handled properly. You need to know who owns the mine shaft you are searching and how easy or difficult they may be to work with. You need to have geology, psychology, electronics and luck all working in your favor for this method to be worth your time and trouble.

That is me on the cover detecting an old Arizona mine shaft. The famous gold prospecting photographer Jim Mulkey took the shot. I remember that day well. I didn't find a thing.

I became fascinated with gold dredging in 1977. I opened a small retail store called The Prospector and began selling dredges, Keene and Gold Grabber models. I joined the GPAA and went to the Italian Bar on the Stanislaus River where George Massie taught me how to dredge for gold.

Not many years later, I dropped in on David McCraken in Happy Camp, California for a few days, just after he had written his first book on gold dredging. He went on to become a very well-known and successful gold dredger. He is still at it.

It took me a lot of searching to find some of my own little hot spots. But, once I did, I found that I could return time and time again for a substantial withdrawal from the other kind of bank. I have always loved SCUBA diving from a young age. I took to gold dredging easily. However, it is not for everyone. Do you like being underwater like I do?

My latest dredging venture led to a major gold discovery near Tena, Ecuador about 15 years ago. I ended up profiting very substantially from that 7-year adventure in the Amazon jungle. If this might be your thing, I can certainly show you how to get started.

This is a pretty cool business model. It can make you rich if you play your cards right and are kind of a "chemistry person". To make this work, you need to live near a gold-bearing area where small miners and gold dredgers are throwing away their black sand concentrates without realizing the values they hold. This is way more common than you might think.

In California, many years ago, I regularly came across piles and piles of black sands that had been thrown away by the miners. When I offered to haul them away while paying them a nominal fee, everyone thought I was nuts. You see, I had learned from the GPAA how to process those sands and pull ounces of gold out that nobody even knew were there.

I went on to learn some even more secret techniques from a small group of "old timers". They taught me how to use some inexpensive chemicals to burn black sands and complex ores at high temperatures in non-oxygen environments, unlocking the gold and making it easy to recover. Ever since, I have just loved chemistry!
