Leaving sunday Morning for a 3000 Km drive !!! 100 Km= 62 miles = a long 2 day Drive!!! My old '79 E350 Vanguard 23 1/2 ft with it's 545 cid C6 backed motorhome is making it's last trip as I'm going to leave it there in Dawson city so I can Fly back up , in the future !! and have a place to stay . That old old Motorhome has pulled it's guts out over the last 25 years pulling my 26ft enclosed Trailer !!@ most times running late to get to the track at 120+ mph with the trailer on behind!!! this run will be an easy run for the old girl!!

when I see the gold diggers in the TV show I´m always wondering how much money is left after all the costs for machines, energy, other costs..

Gold Rush . Parker Schnabel and Tony Beets make out like Bandits as there paid Big money!! Discovery channel has big money !! $1/4 mill an episode , notice all the new equipment on parkers claim ? Freebees for advertising, Yukon Gold on History channel ,Marty knutson and son Karl (the guy's I went up and worked for ) $5k an episode , and Marty hated them being around !! But I know one thing If I was 40 years younger !!! I'd be up there !!! Gold mining !! But there is Big expenses just like me farming ! like $30k a day for your diesel fuel bill !! the guys working there are not making big money , $20 -25 an hour . Start at 7 am shut down at 6pm and grease and fuel your equipment you used that day! But being a Farmer and being use to working 400 hour months it was like te best Holiday ever !!! Partied like a rock star !! Drank guys under the table !! went to Monica Beets wedding , Played escort to a Bridesmaid that her boyfriend missed a plane ! May have got married , honeymoon was fun!! Loved pranking Tourists !! Shit I could find Gold nuggets by scratching my foot on the ground in the parking lot outside Diamond Greties Casino , Them German tourists are gullible!! LOL, as were the UK tourists with their Land Rovers with UK plates at Claim #6 on Bonanza creek !! Pan out a cubic yard of dirt after I found about 3/4's of an ounce of gold in 3 pan's from the Pile!! It was hilarious watching them while sitting in my old motorhome drinking Captain Morgan Spiced Rum , and then back at Claim #33 , me pull in with my Alberta plated Motorhome , go wander threw the museum and then go rent one of the pans( $2 rental) and pan for gold in the troughs they have set up for the tourists to pan for gold ! and if they get lucky they may find a " little color" flour gold ! When I left after panning out some nice gold Nuggets
the nice lady came over and asked if I'd come back tomorrow as she was out of pans for panning for Gold in her trough's!!! lol!!!!
