    You tube mine guy gets a request to look at an abandoned mine in Utah - Price $40M

    Him buyin g the $1M mine seems somewhat feasible upon reflection in how he is geting volenteer (slave ) labour to help, has a faie youtube following and is starting to see some revenue with day tours apparent.

    What business model you would need for a $40M mine, other than producing gold itself, I can not imagine..

    Today's is an audio piece.

    Stuart McLean was (and still is) the quintensicial Canadian bard - Starting his career in middle 70's as a feature presenter for growly voiced, hard drinking, 3 pack a day smoking, loved by all, national morning radio show icon Peter Gzowski on Morningside.

    By the Middle 90's Stuart had his own radio show called the Vinyl Cafe. It had a almost religious following. The Vinyl Cafe followed the factious couple of Dave and Morley who ran a record shop in Toronto. Not stories of the store, although the story factors into story line for sure, but stories of people and interactions between people. The show was recorded live from venues across the country - From down town Toronto to Fut Buck New Found Land.

    He also did yearly Christmas shows , to which I managed to see the last of the series in 2014 - Stuart succumbed to Melanoma in 2015.

    The actual story that triggered this post "The tree of Heaven" is not on youtube, but it can be found on spotify says google - it is a good listen as well. It is a reflection of life manifest in how Dave nurtures a seedling found by humorous happenstance.

    "Dave Cooks the Turkey" is one of the most popular stories of the series and is a yearly staple.

    Shoestring Hobo is now in Alaska - Apparently a bunch of his Facebook group managed to get a ticket together for him.

    The man really knows his stuff e.g 1) Composition of Alaska coal 2) Which trains go where, when, and more so why - 3) Geography of the area and on and on.

    RVerTV is a rather folksy hokey fellow who drives around the US in his modified van..

    A lot of "Will you look at that" and a semi annoying laugh - But he does a good cross section of the southwest and using his videos, and others, to load the visit list for one of our road trips.
