I regret that I haven't been keeping up with my blog. After all, it is my business to do so. Please forgive me. There have been legitimate reasons for me not write and keep you up to speed on the goings on in Nome. I loved being able to research and report about the dredging business in Nome! It's exciting stuff... There are a LOT of ups and downs in the business, and there have been many realizations on my behalf during my time researching it.
Last summer (2013) The Kentucky Boys, on their dredge Goldenrod, actually reaped reward. I won't say how much, but that they didn't go home empty handed. They plan to be back this coming summer and are looking forward to getting on the gold again!
The Discovery Channel's Bering Sea Gold is always so awesome to watch and so real in it's depiction of the business of dredging for gold off the coast of Nome. Congratulations to the Pomrenke's for the incredible year they had in 2013! From what I surmise, their payoff has been a long time coming, as they've lived and breathed the business for many years.
Not many people have what it takes to be in this business...
