Ed's an absolute peach, and y'all are angels!

Recovering (forget about restoring) the Golden Nugget must have cost 100x what it was worth, maybe 1000x. If you don't have extended-range fuel tanks (36 gallon+) in your truck you better carry extra fuel when driving thru eastern Nevada (while towing).

Just got my Golden Nugget tee shirt. Think I'll be getting a call soon.

Well heck I thought Ed was blood related.
I'm sure he's considered family at this point.
Great story!

Busy you haven't even talked about all the business regulations you have to follow in these Democratic county's and state's.

In this day + age, it's so refreshing to see a group of people come together + really work as a team on a project like the Golden Nugget. Matt, I really admire you + your crew, Paul, Robby + their guys, as well as the Bikes + Beards guys, who all gave so selflessly to do this for Ed. Your hearts are obviously all in the right place! You folks down there in Utah are a special breed! Thanks for your hard work and terrific videos!

What a great episode this was! 🤩 Hearing the whole story behind it was really fascinating, entertaining and enjoyable.
One of my best friends owned and still owns a Suzuki LJ, he got this car from his father, and restored it a few years ago. But back then (we‘re talking about 1996-1998) the car wasn‘t restored and had a few dents here and there, the engine probably produced less than 30hp, but we had an amazing time driving the tiny LJ offrad.
So thx for bringing these memories back.
I found your channel maybe 10 days ago, since then I for sure watched at least 15 to 20 videos, and they all were amazing to watch.
And one thing is for sure, I definitely will try to order the „Golden Nugget“ book.
Again: Thanks to all the people who were involved in this project!
Have a good start into the week and very kind regards from Germany 🇩🇪,
Philipp 👋

New subscriber... this has to be my favorite episode.

You guys are great. Showing Ed love and respect says a lot about you all. Thank you!

You have answered a lot of questions about Ed, especially how he became a part of your lives and went on many recoveries. Just a thought, although it's too late, but, if you used a couple 6x6s and slid them under the LJ, with 20 people you could have carried it out. Or maybe not. 🙃😁 Thanks for making this video and for making Ed so happy.

Michael Richmond Michael Richmond . 3 days ago
Thrilled to see this come so far! I met Fred through a mutual mining friend, and he told me about the recovery shortly after it happened. I found the MORR channel, and that led to this whole community of great people that I have grown to love. Hopefully I can meet you all in person someday, but if you ever come back up to Tooele, I'll buy you some real Mexican food...

What a great video and such a labor of love.
Is it just me or could you have stripped the vehicle and carried it out under people power. It seemed pretty light. Just curious.

Wonderful experience watching this whole crew of folks provide a very special gift to someone that means so much. My hat off to all that had a hand in making this happen. Robby needs to slow down some, but I also remember my drive at that age. Thanks.

so nice to hear the whole story ( again) I follow you from almost the beginning. I like to see you drive through my favorite country ( and states) , I travelled 3 weeks a year for 30 years and visited 48 states but the south-west is de best. For the Nugget you travelled over the exterestial road with the little pumpstation, Tonopah, the loneliest road. I have driven and seem them all . So nice to recognise al those places. Hope to visit you soon,

Every single one of you involved are amazing people. It means the world to us that you respect and care so much about Ed to make this a perfect experience for him, not just for the content!!! Cheers Ed and get the nugget back to the claim, hopefully she'll be your lucky charm

The Golden Nugget episode was my gateway hook, now I look forward to seeing all of you every week. It's wholesome, fun, educational entertainment. And I can't be the only one. You guys are great to watch, the content is great, the editing, the everything! Thank you. Good job!

Hmmm! I would ask about an hour's rental for an air-crane and a pre-set hoist. OR ... OR ... OR build a skidding sled. A couple sheets of 5/4 plywood laminated to 1/4" of UHMW poly, a cordless circular saw (or a good sharp little chainsaw with spares) and a cordless drill/driver and a winch to build the thing. Of course, you used a trailer (Good!). A-a-and, I'd want a bit of "powder" to break those rocks. A bit of Powder and a drill can do an awful lot of work. There re very few problems that cannot be solved with the proper placement of explosives. and your mining neighbors would always appreciate it if you bust few rocks for them. Just my half-cent. But I draw the line at the poison oak.
Either that or go 3rd world, build a raft, and disassemble the thing ...
Lizzie is a great sport! Maybe "It's a man's world ..." but you GOTTA have Lizzie!
And above all, thanks for treating the Old Man! May we all have such great Friends! Don't take too long ... friends like that take time, and we only have a limited amount of it.

This is an epic story. I had tears of joy for Ed. Your family is is awesome Americana. What a beautiful job your team did restoring those machines. 😂

Well, in addition to all that work on the vehicles - you're not sending the footage to a editing and production crew to put together and publish to YouTube, right? You're also doing all the editing and publishing yourselves.

Yeah, the timeline to deliver the Nugget was insane.

Thanks for doing a great round up video. . Watching all you guys working so hard on the Nugget has been truly awesome.

If you find a lot of switches between dislike and like, that was me. I like your content so much!

I was listening to you on my way to work. Because it's pretty warm in Germany my shirt was a bit wet and started to randomly press some buttons and links on the YouTube-screen. So, sorry if I have distracted YouTube algorithms or created dislikes. It was not my intention. It was only my wet shirt, trying to learn how to use a mobile phone.
