I'm Holly Jo, I was the "Gold Girl" tour guide the last 3 years at Porcupine Creek in Haines, AK. Two years at John & Parker Schnabel's Big Nugget Gold Mine and one year at Dakota Fred's Porcupine Creek Gold Mine. Not sure what I will be doing this year as the Gold tours at Porcupine Creek are not offered any more...and I kinda got fired.

Living and Learning From Our Elders

Haines, Alaska shedding it's winter snow

 I liked all the air time Parker Schnabel received on last nights Gold Rush TV show.  He is a delight to watch because even when things aren't going right he makes it less stressful by saying something like 'I'm on a slippin' slide' when he was bogging down in the mud with his excavator.  Seeing John Schnabel is also a treat.  I read many chats about Gold Rush and everyone is a loyal fan of Grandpa John.  Me too.  He makes me want to give him a big hug every time I see him.  I got a little choked up when he told Parker that he did not want Parker to know what it was like to have someone die from a choice he made.  This tells me that John Schnabel has been through some hard experiences.  Parker is very lucky to learn from Grandpa John.

I took this last year - but it is one of my favorite photos with John Schnabel
