#1 Yet another example of a tyrannical police state and lost freedoms. The growth and abuse of the RICO statute is well known. The advent of the computer age has enabled an individual's private assets to be catalogued, reviewed, and monitored in record time. I was amazed when I received SSA Form LC99 forms(Potential Private Retirement Benefit Information) in the mail following my registering for Social Security. Why should a 401K or a small private pension be of interest to the payer of an accrued benefit? A rhetorical question of course. Mason jars in the barn, not a bad idea. Just make certain it's not your barn.

#2 How deep would you have to bury your gold to keep them from finding it with a metal detector?

#3 If you bought it on the internets, don't bother. They know, you know, they know. If you're very, very careful and deliberate, multi-site utility masking may be an option. Don't forget to document your work, and be advised; newly disturbed earth and tamping is bad juju.

#4 What on earth is multi-site utility masking?

#5 Fireplugs, utility lines, things of that nature. Hand-held detectors will alert on them, and thus mask other underlying anomalies. Small and vertical is good. Many is better.

#6 My personal favorite is a heavy old piece of agricultural implement or automotive scrap iron. the heavier and rustier the better. Sends a large signal and the operator will be reluctant to dig it all up, and simply move on. Makes an excellent reference point for recovery as well.

#7 Could be fun just "salting" large areas. A way to get rid of old cars, etc.
