COWBOY is TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED. STAY TUNED.

We love treasure hunts: creating, organizing and even doing the hunting. And, so do most people.

COWBOY: A Treasure Hunt is an ongoing treasure hunt project inspired by an ink drawing of a mysterious cowboy done by an artist named Sheri Friedman.

$1,000 cash ~ 10 one-hundred dollar bills ~ hidden somewhere in the United States. The book is a treasure map telling a story with clues on how the reader can find the money and dig it up.

The Throwback Treasure Hunt: 12-12-12 is a hunt that remains unsolved.

Years ago, with the date 12/12/12 quickly approaching, a treasure hunt was created as a throwback to a favorite hunt of all time, The Secret by Byron Preiss.

A ceramic casque containing a gold ring with some stones and other valuable items was hidden with the hunt centered around the number 12.

Designed originally to be solved in 12 months it was difficult due to its calendar format at the time of the original release.

Never solved and never retrieved from its location, a new release was made into a downloadable book that is accessible to all who wish to seek.

There are 12 puzzles ~ ALL with the number 12 as their muse. These 12 puzzles are all you need to solve the hunt and claim the prize that ~ we'll admit ~ is buried.

Bonus puzzle to get you started: Let’s see if you can guess how many inches down in the ground the treasure is buried?
