THE LOST WHISKEY LOAD
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
Where is the lost whiskey load?
The only way you would be interested in this lost
treasure is if you are a connoisseur of whiskey.
In 1880 a freighter was chosen to carry a loan of
100-proof whiskey from northern California to the mining camps in northern
Arizona. The tale does not start until the freighter stops for a few days to
rest at a ranch in Oasis Valley. When it left, it headed south but was forced to
stop once again when they came upon a storm close to the sand dunes just 23
miles outside of Beatty. Beatty is located in Nye county. The freighter could
not go any farther because the sand storm made it impossible to see so he moved
the animals and himself to a safe location using his wagon as a refuge.
The storm lasted all through that day and up until
the wee hours of the next morning. As he could begin to see once again, he could
not find any of animals and the storm had lost all tracks. Since he no longer
had any animals to pull the whiskey he had to find another way in which to move
the cargo. He headed off on foot to the ranch in Oasis Valley. After almost two
days, he made it there and borrowed some horses that he could hitch to load of
whiskey. By the time, he returned to where his wagon once was there was no sign
of the wagon or anything else. The sand had completed covered everything. He
searched for a very long time and then gave up, returned the horses, and went on
Another tale of the same load of whiskey places the
wagon outside Rose’s Well instead of Beatty. Many believe this story as there
was no one that someone could have walked 100 miles in a day and a half to reach
the Oasis Valley ranch from where the wagon would have been.
No matter which tale you believe, the whiskey has
never been found and is still buried under the sand somewhere in northern
