  1. I really enjoyed this article, as well as Nick's books a lot of Nicks adventures are also in the book. They cover the time period of the 1980's treasure hunting in the Philippines for Japanese gold.

  2. This is a great article ,it really describes what it was like in the Philippines during the 1980's. The author does a great job in describing what life in the Philippines was like around the military bases and Jungles. I really enjoyed his books and a lot of his real life adventures are included in them. I would have loved to see those bunkers first hand.

  3. A great article on what it was like to be a treasure hunter in the Philippines during the 1980's . Many have dreamed of finding a treasure like the Japanese hid during the war, or exploring Japanese cave or bunker untouched since the war. You can imagine what some of that stuff would be worth now. Would have loved to see those finds first hand.
