There's now a show on TV about a group from Oregon that lost their jobs because of the economy and are now trying their luck at gold mining. Hopefully they don't strike it rich, otherwise there's going to be a ton of idiots thinking there's gold in there darn hills and all rushing to Alaska. Sure there's gold, but for everyone 1 person who gets rich, I'm sure there's 50 who don't.Strange where? I am kickin it w/ Whalers and Gold Miners in the last of the wild west Nome AK. Man there is a lot of old iron around this town And some big dredges, tonight I saw a remote controlled rig on a excavator undercarriage 200 hitachi size it crawls on ocean floor w/ a 40 foot exhaust stack and floating dredge. It gets light at noon and musk ox come right into town. Next stop King Cove down on the chain.
