Armed with no more than their wits and a compass (the compass was by far the more useful tool) they sought the treasure that awaited them. This adventure was all the more impressive for Goldcont because only 3 weeks prior to this date he had broken a bone in his foot during a terrible gravitationally induced vertical collision with a hard floor (and not at all due to him being a complete idiot).
