will include home cooked meals made for a gold miner's appetite. Our cook has
an intuitive flare for coming up with just what you crave with 3 hot meals a day,
desserts, cookies, pies, muffins, homemade bread. Hot coffee is available 24 hours.
Bring back the berries you pick and enjoy a freshly made huckleberry pie with
huckleberry pancakes for breakfast! Be prepared to share your pancakes with our
camp mascot the arctic fox named "Dog" that frequents the cook shed.
There will probably be some bad weather including rain, snow, and wind
- one of our seasoned miners said that Sherette Creek is the only place in all
of Alaska that he has seen the wind blow the water out of the sluice box. We mine
in all kinds of weather so bring your boots, rain gear, and sunglasses.
Expect to run your hands through pounds of gold, toss a few nuggets around, and
sense the exhilaration of accomplishment with your fellow miners. Kind of like
being on the winning team in the superbowl - in our case the "superpan".
