Help find my precious minecraft seed?

It seems there is so much churn, how can I find a seed from maybe 5 or 6 months ago? Beautiful savannah hills/valley, big ravine right in front of you at start, many many caves.

I got this seed off of one of the popular sites, but mucho searching has turned up nothing, there is too much new stuff. It was such a beautiful world and I would so much like to go back there, but I have no access to the computer I was using.

Start on a gentle slope, looking into a savannah valley surrounded by high hills. To your right is a forested hill, and a small group of horses right there.

The valley in front of you is dominated by a huge ravine.

The hills around the valley are riddled with caves.

To your left after a moment you'll be at a river, other side of it is a desert biome.

Behind you after a few minutes walk you'll be at the sea coast.

I know it's a long shot... any ideas?

Doesn't sound familiar by description, but if you got it from a high-traffic, public source, I think your odds of finding it again are good.

-This sounds like you mean you just got tired of going back through the archives after a while, not that it's actually missing. If so, give it another shot later when you have your search stamina back.

-What sites are you referring to? Do they have communities or owners you could ask? If nothing else pans out, I know /r/minecraft is a large, busy and knowledgeable place, so someone there could probably point you in a good direction at least.

-If you have a list of candidates but it's tedious to load and explore them all, AMIDST will quickly generate color-coded maps of any seed. (I use this program and can vouch that it is safe.)

Good luck!

Do you know roughly when you found it and on what site? Using Google's search tools, you can limit your search to a specific site and time frame.

Have you tried r/minecraftseeds?

I was able to get a very patient person where my computer still exists to send me the save file.
