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.

John Schnabel Turned A Young 93

Well folks, next week is the last show of the season 3 for Gold Rush.  It is time for all the hard working gold miners to hit it big. I don't see how a season 4 will be made....what would they do to make it interesting?  Well, I can think of one way.  I think it would be interesting to have young Parker Schnabel go work a gold mine in the Yukon and be in competition with that young Yukon Gold Miner Girl we saw on Gold Rush Dirt two weeks ago (I can't remember her name).  Maybe they could have a love/hate competition and then fall in love and get married on top of a wash plant.  Hey, that would make it good TV......for women.  This show has been all grease and dirt, where is the romance?  Just kidding.  I know Gold Rush is a MAN SHOW.

Quitters Never Win - We Are In The Gold Now!

Gold Tour to Porcupine guests hang out with Parker Schnabel in his
new 4-wheeler at Big Nugget Mine


Yeehaw!!!!  We are finally seeing some rich dirt in everyone's pockets.  I am so happy for all 3 (or 4 if you split Todd Hoffman's crew up) of the mining crews of the TV show "Gold Rush" on Discovery Channel. I just love this show because it is teaching us very profound lessons.  I am a huge fan of the Law of Attraction and I think this show promotes that belief system.  The Hoffmans, Dakota Boys, and the Schnabels all have dreams and goals of finding gold.  Yet a large amount of the time they are faced with machines breaking down, the season being too short, MSHA coming down on them, communication troubles, money issues and the environment in general........but do they quit?
