DASH SPHINX ADVACED
History has referred to him as “Texas’ Beloved Bandit” and “Robin Hood on a Fast Horse.” In 1870 he traveled to Texas to become a cowboy, finding employment with a local sheriff. Eventually, that same sheriff would hunt him once he became an outlaw.
Going broke after trying his hand at cattle herding, he turned to robbing stage coaches. A few years later he found the most lucrative outlaw business of all – train robbing. This culminated in him and his gang stealing $60,000 in gold coins north of Texas and him escaping back home with his share of the loot.
Thrifty by nature, it’s believed that Texas’ Beloved Bandit, or Sam Bass, hid most of his gold in different areas that he frequented around Texas. Bass would eventually take its locations to the grave, as he was wounded and killed in a shootout with the Texas Rangers in Round Rock, Texas.
Our Society has searched for Sam Bass’s treasure for years, wanting to protect this priceless piece of Texas history. But our efforts have been fruitless.
The trail has gone cold for our investigator. We need your help to solve the clues she’s gathered to two different locations around the Austin/Round Rock area that likely each house some of his gold. One location is easily accessible to anyone, including families that may have junior explorers, while the other location is better accessed by sure-footed advanced treasure seekers.
