140--Alaska: Good as Gold
@ CherieSpotting     Jul 28 2003 - 15:49 PST
cherie writes: In all the hiking we did, none of us ever saw another soul on a trail. We were truly one (or six?) with the wilderness. On one hike, Greg noticed a stream laden in gold! “Eureka!” He bellowed. “I’m going to make my first million dollars finding gold.”

“I thought you were going to make your first million writing computer soft ware?” I reminded Greg.

“Not any more,” Greg replied. “Writing software to make your millions is so 90s.”

So while we hiked countless miles through the state’s backwoods, Greg could always be found crouched next to a stream, his fingers blue, swishing a bowl with some sparkly dirt in it. Greg saved all his flakes and nuggets in a zip-lock for later professional analysis. Back at the boat, Rick examined the glittery rocks. “From these specimens it doesn’t seem that the stream was paved with gold. More likely, it was lined with pyrite.”
