Time to start the 2014 mining season! Had the usual first day hiccups. Had to take the big equipment hauling truck the shop for some issues we just discovered. All the atv batteries died. We forgot tools, had to make patch jobs, tempers ran high at times.
The weather was absolutely amazing. I have lived in Alaska all my life and I have never seen 80 degrees in May. Never.
Hoping to fire up our trommel for the first time tonight or tomorrow.
We are tired, sore, and incredibly blessed.
