    Whats up with the Dozer Dave show?

    Not a fan of Parker's spin off but I was liking the Dozer Dave show. First it was on Tuesdays, the not on this week and then over to Fridays. Now it seems to be gone. Not enough drama? Not competition so they can the weekly Coors crab count total?

    I'm pretty sure it's all just staged for drama, they've been doing dumb stuff like that since the first Gold Rush show. There was never enough paydirt in that area for more than one day.

    It is still a bad idea to put on T.V. for a example of theft being O.K. !

    I will say though that in episode 3 it was the most application of actual mining basic mining practices the Gold Rush saga has ever shown. Mining not drama trumped the flavor of the episode

    I started watching but have stopped due to the typical Discovery channel spin on things. I had high hopes for this show, I should have known better I guess.

    Yeah. Iím not so sure why he was so thrilled with 80 oz when his goal was 100oz. How much did each miner go home with? How much did each get from Discovery? Is this one of Toads spin offs? So heís cashing in too?

    I do like the whole emphasis on teamwork and hard work and mutual respect.

    He handed a quarter or so filled vial to one of the guys. I assume the other guys got the same so several grams or maybe an ounce each depending on it's size. When you think about equipment rental, fuel, royalties to the claim owners, etc. the economics do not add up. If Dave recovered the $80,000 he said he had invested in the venture then it was because of what the Discovery Channel gave him/them for filming the episodes.
    If it can't be grown, it must be mined!
