Synopsis: The meet at Dan’s house to lay out a Plan A and Plan B for the hunt. They talk about the coconut fiber and then discuss the swamp. Dan states the swamp is shallow, only around 5 feet at it’s deepest point. Oak tree stumps were found in the swamp, but the oak tree can’t grow in water. Dan believes the swamp is man-made because of that. One theory is that the treasure is actually under the swamp and the money pit is just a decoy. At the edge of swamp site, they start clearing some trees so that they can drain it. Rick actually jumps into the swamp to start clearing debris. He finds it strange that the swamp bottom is flat. Alex and Jack are moving through a clearing and a tree nearly falls on them. Rick yells at them for not being safe and staying alert. The narrator discusses the six deaths that have taken place on the island and how grisly they. At the war room they discuss their plan to drain the swamp and search it’s bottom. Rick gets a call from Lee Lamb. She lost her father and brother on the island in 1965. She’s going to come and visit. She arrives and they all meet at Dan’s house. She brought with her the man who worked with her father and brother, the only one who survived the tragedy. Lee talks about her resentment and hatred of the island. Her father and brother dying on the island and her husband dying a few months later. She says the island’s curse is that things always go wrong. The island changes a person. The survivor who came with Lee does his best, as he is overcome with emotion, to tell what happened. Rick talks about how the island has affected many families and ruined many lives. Rick and Lee have one last meeting. She gives him maps and information. She loans him her brothers journals. He wrote them when he was on the island. The journals indicate that there was also a mystery box being searched for. As well as notes about it being buried at the bottom of the swamp. There are also notes regarding a circular tunnel. They all meet up back at the swamp. They go over the plan to pump the swamp. They have to move the water somewhere else on the island because it is brackish. It can’t just be dumped in the ocean. They lay out all the hoses and connect them up to the two water pumps. Dan Henske is discussed. He has lived on the island and hunted for the treasure for 50 years. He tells a story of becoming possessed by a spirit on the island. A story about weird lights is shared along with other paranormal stories. That evening at Dave’s house, Rick has invited a paranormal team who’s investigated previously to get their thoughts. The group goes down to the swamp, where several of the investigators find it very creepy. They actually do a paranormal investigation while there. The K2 meter starts going crazy. The next day they meet up at Dave’s house to discuss the draining of the swamp. They discuss the plan for searching the swamp. And also safety with the poison gas that they could encounter. They adjourn the meeting and head to the swamp. They switch on the pumps and then go check the discharge point to make sure it’s working. Water is coming out at the discharge point.
