Imagine a life in which you wouldn't have to worry about money for another day? Well, quite an impossible goal to attain, especially when you have so much to buy and you are always short on money. So..what now? Oh, wait! You can always go treasure hunting. I am not kidding! Just imagine the endless wealth which will be at your disposal if you succeed.
However, the main issue here is which treasure should you go Sherlock over? As you might be already knowing that I am a very nice person (so not kidding), here is a list of American Treasures which are still open for a human claim.

Forrest Fenn was a treasure hunt enthusiast and collected a huge number of artifacts in his lifetime.

Two of them are "I know the treasure chest is wet," and "The treasure is not associated with any structure."
Apparently, Mojave Desert has millions of dollars of pearls buried under its layer of sand. All thanks to the runoff water which collided with the Gulf of California and took a ship crashing to the Salton Sea. The undiscovered treasure is still out there. Maybe, you'll get lucky.
Treasure Hunter Doc Noss found thousand of gold bars in a mysterious tunnel in the Victorio Peak. But as the Noss family scoured the area, Doc Noss was able to secure 200 gold bars and hid them in the underground tunnel. The unfound treasure is somewhere out there.
