If you decide to go on a treasure hunt, you need to prepare yourself physically and financially as well as mentally.
• Physical Fitness.
It is important to make sure you are in good physical shape. You will usually be required to travel for long periods of time in the forest, mountains or on the coast. It is therefore advisable to start exercising daily in advance to get your body in shape.
• Preparing the outfit.
In addition to the basic things: clothes, shoes, tent, sleeping bag, camping mat, map, compass, flashlight, knife, matches, dishes, food, it is also necessary to bring a metal detector and a shovel. Before leaving, make sure that all these things are in good condition.
• Information retrieval.
Before going to the search site, it is necessary to study all the information available on the Internet and in libraries about the area where the treasure is supposed to be found. Explore maps and historical data, and, already on the spot, talk to the locals. This will help you decide more quickly on the right place where you will have to dig a deep hole (perhaps someone's grave!).
• Moral Preparation.
The important point is to convince yourself that you have enough time to carry out the treasure chest search. The trip will usually take a lot of time and effort, and you need to be prepared for that. You need to make sure that you have the financial means to purchase tickets and necessary items. And also, while still at home, realize that most likely you will not find anything, but only lose: time, money, strength and health.
Know that hope is only a postponement of disappointment. And if you come back from your trip alive and well, that will be your reward.
