    Looks like a lot of fun

  2. Lanky Tor on March 12, 2023 at 3:12 am

    Before pandemic we go rafting American river! Part of the fun is bonding with friends, especially kids! Finding tiny specks of gold in the sand. But the best part is the magic and a nice dinner outside and a campfire!! And helping each other out with cleaning up dishes and looking at the stars!💙 it’s an escape and it helps bring me back to earth!!

  3. the Antichrist on March 12, 2023 at 3:12 am

    Where is the location that you were at

  4. Brad Stoner on March 12, 2023 at 3:13 am

    I’m surprised that the governor hasn’t sent armed troops out there to confiscate your gold and fine everyone for having fun and exercising your constitutional rights. California is such a beautiful place so rich with natural resources its ashamed to see such liberal and corrupt government in such a wonderful state.

  5. Diablo Soto on March 12, 2023 at 3:19 am

    hello how are you good video where is it from california ?? I go to the river

  6. Rod chris on March 12, 2023 at 3:19 am

    Mountain mike cooks professionally. Those aren’t home knife skills

  20. Shawn Dilley on March 12, 2023 at 3:40 am

    I’m happy everyone had a great time. There’s tons of flood gold locked up in certain zones through the gravel bars. Jerry was correct, the best gold is in the upper bands of sand. I’ve found areas as rich as three tenths per bucket. Next time you come up I’ll show you the best areas. Congratulations to all.

  21. Alfonso Ramirez on March 12, 2023 at 3:41 am
