Mysterious Writings treasure hunts

Get your Quest on!

Start exploring treasures and other fun mysteries and adventures from around the world!  Who knows what you might discover! MW is a site dedicated to the hunting for treasures, mysteries, and adventures, and encourages the quest for learning, seeking answers, and enjoying life while exploring.

I love how the following quote encapsulates meaning for this website:

“If there wasn’t anything to find out, it would be dull.  Even trying to find out and not finding out is just as interesting as trying to find out and finding out; and I don’t know but more so.”Mark Twain

A great place to start to get to know some of the other Treasure Hunts this site talks about is on the page: Treasure Hunt Summaries. This page provides a list of what Armchair Treasure Hunts, you will find here!  It includes what Treasures (IN GOLD AND CASH REWARD) are OUT THERE for you to find!  Wouldn’t it be great if you found the Million Dollar Treasure Chest of Gold hidden by Forrest Fenn or the $10,000 Golden Key treasure of Fandango?

But the site includes much more then just Armchair Treasure Hunts.  Explorations into lost treasures and other types of treasures are discussed here as well.  Along with mysteries, unsolved codes, ghost towns, metal detecting, valuable coins, puzzles and riddles, mysterious people, places, and things.

Destinations are not always known, nor always found.  However, the explorations are enjoyed and treasures of various types are always discovered during a quest.  Feel free to constructively comment, share ideas, or offer insights on subjects discussed.

To name a few, the site includes thoughts and perspectives on the million dollar treasure hunt of The Thrill of the Chase by Forrest Fenn, The Bossall Treasure hunt, Fandango Treasure Hunt, The Beale Papers codesRennes le Chateau Mystery, the continuous quest for the Holy Grail of the Maranatha puzzle, and much more. The Maranatha puzzle is what inspired my own serious search beyond the ordinary.  It was the original basis for creating this site, and instigator for Six Questions. For this reason, the site incorporates, and continues to discuss, material offered during the puzzle.  Consisting of an array of historical and unique subject matter, the puzzle encouraged a quest for wisdom and understanding.  I’m not sure that ever stops.

The site is an ever expanding source for mystery, adventure, and search for treasures.  Be sure to subscribe to the MW newsletter for exclusive fun.

When not out hunting down actual treasures or researching possible leads to answer life’s mysteries, I often enjoy playing games of similar themes. Pulling down one of the many Treasure Games  from my shelf  is always fun to do.  As a game collector of games from the 1800’s and up, I have many.  Besides sharing some of these old games, I will provide reviews for more recent games that you and your family could enjoy if wanted.

You may also notice the website features Six Questions.

‘Six Questions’ are interview-like discussions with individuals who, I feel, inspire each of us to go beyond the ordinary.  They are with people who are actively exploring and are willing to share their adventures with others. They offer intriguing insights into life’s journey.

The site hopes to strengthen and inspire you on your own quest for whatever you seek.  I believe we all intuitively sense a desire towards an adventurous seeking.  Is it so dissimilar to the search for the ‘Holy Grail’?; (defined as ‘something of immense worth and treasure’)

I invite you to share in the journey and follow/friend me on Facebook for thoughts and updates on quests.

WELCOME! and please feel free to look around the site and explore! There is a lot within!
