Gold Rush Alaska DVD

In the face of an economic meltdown, six men will risk everything to strike it rich mining for gold in the wilds of Alaska. Todd Hoffman of Sandy, Oregon, along with his father, are leading a group of greenhorn miners in search of the American dream and a new frontier. Gold fever is back, and the rush is on. While leasing a gold claim in Alaska, Todd and company must ward off bears, build homes for their families, and keep the operation running as they take fate into their own hands with a make or break venture that will change their lives forever. DISC #1 Ep. 1) No Guts, No Glory: Todd Hoffman and his father Jack have hit hard times. They run a small aviation business in Sandy Oregon but it's not doing well and the planes have stopped landing. Todd and Jack aren't the kind of people to take problems lying down. Back in the 80's Jack used to be a gold miner. And with the price of gold going sky high, he's decided it's time to start digging again. He and Todd lease a gold claim called Porcupine Creek in South East Alaska. They recruit a band of unemployed friends to become rookie Gold Miners. The recession has hit the team too. Ex sheet-metal worker, Jim Thurber is about to lose his house. Realtor Jimmy Dorsey is so broke he lives with his mother in law. Mechanic James Harness has destroyed his back in a car wreck and needs money for surgery. Greg Remsburg's last construction job was a year ago. The team of mining greenhorns beg, borrow and build all the equipment they need to mine for gold. Loaded with supplies, they leave their loved ones behind and drive from Oregon to Alaska in a Klondike convoy. They have just five months to set up a gold mine and strike gold before winter closes them down. They face, bear attacks, flooding, constant breakdowns, infighting, fatal illness and many more adventures as they struggle to get down to the gold and save their families. Ep. 2) Gold, Guns, and Bears: Six unemployed greenhorns continue risking it all to strike gold in Alaska. The stakes get higher at Porcupine Creek as reality sets in about just how little time they have to get to their gold. The miners start to rebuild the ghost town but the bears aren't so keen on their new neighbors- and they let them know it. They visit their neighbor, John Schnabel, who is a 90 year old mining legend with pockets filled with gold. Meanwhile, Todd and Jack can't even agree where or how to start digging for their own gold. Then Jack drops their 22,000 lb rock-shaker off a lowboy and the accident threatens to shut down the mining season before they've even begun to dig. Ep. 3) Running Dirt: Tensions mount as the greenhorns become more desperate to find gold in Alaska. They've built their camp but now must set up the hand-built mining machines called the wash-plant. They are behind schedule and were supposed to be 'running dirt' two weeks ago. They must see some gold soon and begin to make money or lose everything. The stakes couldn't be higher. T
