I'm watching, I like seeing people take chances, I like pondering the possibilities. I like seeing people succeed. I try not to get caught up in the sensationalization, be cause I figure that is created by the producers. "Gold Rush" is actually what got me into prospecting. Think what you want about the Hoffmans, but they took a shot and seem to be doing ok for themselves. Big risk knowing so little about mining and going for it. They all have messed up and overcome big mistakes, not an easy thing to do. I like seeing Parker kick their butt and Mature a little bit. I like seeing the big piles of gold lol. There are a few really good people on the show, as well as some characters. Such is life.
