"There are rubies, sapphires, over 140 beautiful diamonds, silver, gold, rare collectible coins dating all the way back to the 3rd century of the Roman Empire, a 24 karat gold plated "Alice in Wonderland" charm bracelet, and more. If you can find the golden key, you can have the treasure chest. During these crazy times, I wanted to give people a reason to turn off the television sets and get back out into nature. I wanted to create an adventure. There are clues and hints in my book, 'The Hatter's Hat,' which will lead you straight to the golden key. Whoever finds that key can claim the treasure. I didn't want to just leave all the treasure out in the wilderness because I didn't want any legal battles over who is the rightful owner. The first person to solve the clues and find that golden key will claim title to the treasure."
