Toad isn't exactly a big picture thinker is he?

Not so much gold rush or the crab fishing show, they are in their own little world and tend to stay there. So I don't tend to see either as representing alaska. But in general from what I have seen of IRT, bearing sea gold, the Palins, flying wild alaska, tougher in alaska, alaska state troopers, have all disuaded me from wanting too go to there.
The Bering Sea Gold people make the Goldrush folks look like geniuses. I don't understand why anyone would employ that Steve guy - he's mentally unhinged, obnoxious, and is absolutely terrible at his job.

I'm thinking next season, if there is a season, that Dave and his crew cut ties with Toads group and do their own thing. Dave is a civil engineer and its apparent he knows his way around a large scale construction operation such as mining - Toad has shown zero competence in anything he has done.

Dave should definitely strike out on his own. I don't think they'd include him in the show much after that though. Like we talked about earlier with Tony Beats, its awfully boring to see a successful gold mine pulling up dirt, running it through the process, turning a profit.

How exactly is Toad maintaining his weight living in remote Alaska, presumably cooking for himself, while working 10 - 14 hour days?

Toad will have to have some new equipment next season, I'm sure the goal will be 10,000 ounces.

We should all pitch in and make Toad a tromel out of tin-foil and popsicle-sticks. And sell it to him for 3 million dollars.

We'll ship it 6 months late and it will use rotted rubber bands for a motor....oops- they all broke!

I hope Parker nails it this week. He seems to be the only one that tony Beets has any respect for.

Tony Beets said in a interview that he likes Dave and is impressed with his crew, He would Hire them, they get things done.

Well, when your 10-14 hour days consist of stuffing your face and riding around on a modified golf cart yelling at people I don't think it's too hard to maintain fat bastard status.

Also, he's not cooking for himself. His wife and kids are there so he gets home cooked meals.
