It was good to see her briefly, know who she is etc. The Beets are the less religious and are filthy rich. When he was at big nugget he wasted a lot of money and never got any gold. He's ungrateful and never satisfied. Stuff like that happens, but not often enough to create a problem and also, resetting the equipment may be a headache, but you set it up to prevent worst case scenarios which would be an even larger headache anyway. Well that's great, do you have any tests to prove that? He was a terrible worker who got kept his job because Parker liked him. Like if it were me, I'd out a sensor on the conveyor belt that would cut things off if the belt gets pinned, rather than have the belt torn to shreds or burn a motor or strip a gear.
I think the best Todd would make with Parker were just Todd trying to prove to himself that he's a miner. What the hell is going on?? He would be if he had the brains to stay consistent like Tony and Parker. Anyone know how his crew gets paid? Just stuff for crucial items. This season the miners will take on even greater risks in hopes of finding more gold than ever before. Can we test drill to prove that? But Discovery doesn't seem interested in following through with that plot point. At least Yukon can taste the gold. Gold fever is back, and the rush is on.
You see Parker getting in the mix all the time as well as Tony. He's restoring them so he can use them only once. She's not important to his operation or the show. Let's revisit The Cheese Man for a minute; he was initially billed as the guy in charge of moving the new dredge. I'm surprised none of the crews has utilized the findings of these studies in their sluice designs. It's a great show I just get really annoyed with Todd.
Where's your agape love, dude? And working on some tugboats. They both know exactly what's going on with their operation. Parker's crew feels authentic and is actually interesting. All the tests they did turned up big gold. And I'm sure Tony is monitoring his progress like a hawk. So Tony puts him to work. And let's not forget the big one.
Tony is comical and seeing the dredge work is unique in itself. Maybe there wasn't as much thawed and it's being left to thaw further. He was supposed to ve transporting a new dredge. Funny thing, Todd is the most religious and is having the most difficult time. It would be amazingly cheaper to to hire a proper tug and barge for the short trip it has to make. Why are we not seeing Cheeseman in almost every episode?.
So he knows how to mine, what he hasn't learned is that people lie. It's insulting how fake and scripted that whole side of the show is. I have been a fan of the show since the original first season. There has been some very good studies done both in the Yukon, for the type of gold that is there, and in the states for the type of gold usually found which is finer. You don't play around on the waterways.
As you pointed out: Parker's girlfriend, Parker's second operation. He is not a leader, he is a horrible boss. Todd should have spent some money test drilling in Oregon before spending so much time and money mining very poor ground. As flaky as Todd seems at times, he couldn't still be mining 7 years later if there was even a hint of a rumor of him cheating claim owners. I'm sure some of their wash plants do have auto cut-offs. There's a lot going on in a washplant, you can't just kill everything instantly all the time, or you'll cause more problems. This season they keep introducing these little plot points and then forgetting to follow up on them.
But it's not a regular occurence where water pressure drops to nothing. It's a race against time as the water is quickly freezing, but with food sources running low they are forced to pause and go hunting or face starvation. Todd needs to start walking the Christian walk or get another shtick. I'm not saying go out and get some 2016 Bayliners. The easiest thing to do is have safety and auto-cutoff sensors to make your equipment last longer. I've yet to see any improvement in Parker as a personnel manager.
