If I lived out in your neck of the cacti, and could get a committee together, I'd be looking for lost silver mines, or mother lodes of turquoise to wholesale to the hobby jewelers.
With modern day lights, metal detectors, cordless tools, it would seem plausible that a team of three to five folks might just discover a vein, hit the lottery.
Part of the mystique is being able to go under the radar, and quests for "El Dorado" are always a good thing to rally round.
If I was closer to that Crater of Diamonds in Arkansas, thats another place I'd get a team of MBprospectors headed for a weekend, one lucky find, and everybody gets free gas.
