8×8 Heavy Haul Mine Site Move : Make it Snappy


Published on Apr 21, 2019

We have no choice. The mine site is collapsing. It is time to pull stakes and move the trommel on its new trailer to a more secure spot. With a different layout to the mine site I already know we have to move the shaker plant also. But.. that will be another day. First and foremost.. we need to shore up the wall, before a total and utter collapse. That would be a season ender for sure.

The Tamiya Ford AeroMax has a Tekin Roc 412 Motor being powered by 12v.. it is pulling approximately 60 Lbs. Im sure to run into some trouble.. after surveying the land. Im worried about belly drag with the trailer.

Hopefully, I can get a bed truck (bush truck) on site if necessary. They are pretty expensive at about 1000 hours per $1. Thankfully.. I know a guy. He has built an all Steel Bed Truck… which is only equipped with one winch. I know I shouldn’t call on him.. as his truck isn’t completed, but if I get into a spot I may have no choice.

YouTube Gold is a #Parody of the popular Gold Shows we see on TV such as #goldrush, yukon gold and others.. Yes, we are mining real gold.. and yes, we are full grown men using tiny machines to mine the gold. None of this is make believe.. as many viewers seem to believe.
There is irony in all of what you see.. and of course.. it’s all choreographed. THiS IS THE INTERNET.. #Canadian Do not believe everything you see.. #trending

Most everything is staged, such as scenarios, acting out our characters, comedy.. etc.. In fact, we are not even working for efficiency, as we are a group of hobbyists who are more interested in entertaining our audience.. than “actually getting gold”.

A few of the things that are not staged is our friendship, the laughter, camaraderie, and of course.. THE GOLD! (Yes, it’s real pay dirt). The true Gold is the experience we get as friends, what we hope the viewers get watching a group of goofballs entertain them with some very cool toys. One mans hobby, is another’s entertainment on YouTube!
