Ahoy there, ye hearties! Are ye going to join me in the quest for the buried treasured, or are ye a bunch of land lovers? If this sounds like another one of those Long John Silver clichés, then shiver me timbers, you're in for an exciting adventure.

Have you ever heard of the saying, "One man's trash is another man's treasure"? Well, this simply means that treasure is subject to individual interpretation. That's an important maxim when it comes to burying treasure.

Find something in your possession that's of sentimental value. If you think it has become clutter over the many years you've kept it, then such an item is a prime candidate for treasure burial.

Look for a suitable plot of land in which to bury your treasure. It doesn't need to be anything fancy, and neither does your treasure chest. The use of a rusted up old toolbox should suffice.

An ideal treasure burial spot would be a place that you frequent but which no one else visits. It could be a special self-reflection spot in the nearby paddocks, or a beach-side forest.

Just make sure that your treasure box is sufficiently sealed. Perhaps wrap the item up in newspaper or a towel for added protection. And if you want to play pirates, draw up a treasure map and maybe include it in your Will and Testament.
