Miscellaneous Information:

Background: He and his wife Hope have been married for twenty-nine years and have two children, Travis and Colin. Rich started his treasure hunting back in the late seventies while wreck diving off of New Jersey and bottle hunting in the Saint Lawrence Seaway. He graduated from PADI College in San Diego, CA in 1978 and opened Sunken Treasure Scuba Center (STSC) in Jersey Shore, PA. He earned a PADI Master Instructor in 1988 and in 1992, a PADI IDC Staff Instructor. The year 2000 brought changes to his life when he started prospecting and in 2001 he helped start the Bald Eagle Chapter of the GPAA. 2001 also brought about a new form of treasure hunting above water with a conventional detector. Today if he's not selling diving or prospecting equipment from the store odds are he's out somewhere in the wilderness looking for the elusive treasure.
