SAN LUIS OBISPO, California - A group of Boy Scouts recently camped on the infamous San Andreas Fault, which runs roughly 800 miles from the town of Monterey to Bakersfield.
Scout Leader Roscoe Loxahatchee stated to American Spotlight Magazine that his boys wanted to experience the thrill of camping right smack dab on the infamous seismic fault.
As they pitched their pup tents one of the young scouts looked down at a crevice and saw a very shiny item. He got closer and noticed that it looked like a piece of gold.
He showed it to scout leader Roscoe, as the scouts call him. Loxahatchee studied gold prospecting at Left Coast College in Carpinteria, California, and he verified that it was indeed gold, pure gold
They quickly got in the scout leaders Cadillac Escalade SUV and drove over to a gold store in San Luis Obispo. The clerk examined it and told the scout leader that it was definitely gold.
Roscoe asked him how much it was worth. The clerk raised his eyebrows and said that the piece of gold was worth $7,835.
He asked the scout leader where they had found it.
Loxahatchee grinned as he paused for a moment. He looked at his pack of Boy Scouts and replied, "Ah, we found it in Texas."
