Well sometimes I "feel" like a nut and sometimes I don't, but do most times.

Nothing like NYC, trust me, it is the complete opposite. NYC has skyscrapers and buildings galore, and people and traffic galore!

I would not bury anyone in that nome graveyard. Its completely gornw up. Most civil war graveyards are better kept out in the woods than the Nome cemetery is. They ride 4 wheelers through it as a shortcut to get into town and it has abandoned "Porter Potties" laying around it. Lots of the graves are just knocked over and the old cribs are scattered around. I found that some of the graves arent even on the cemetery parcel. So please dont bury your dad there who ever said they were.

Nome is off of the flat hills from the mountains. Climb Anvil and you can see mountains. It is flat = sea level. The housing is very close. There is an area "Icy View" about 2 miles from town with another housing development. There are some roads that lead out of town, to the mine, to a different village. But there is no way to drive from Nome to anywhere in the interior (*Fairbanks) or Anchorage. The winter is cold, wet, & windy similar to the midwest with the wet cold. Nothing like Fairbanks. Just like anywhere in Alaska - dark & cold winters, light & mild summers. The people are very friendly, and reminds me of a small town from the midwest. People wave to one another, and it is NEVER hard to find a helping hand. Be prepared to see Musk Ox, Caribou, and bears. The wildlife is amazing! Please do your own research on it, because it seems that many people would like to only lead you astray. Good Luck!

One of the TV cable channels has an occasional show about the people digging for gold around the Nome beaches. I think a lot of the land is owned by the GPAA ....... let me see if I can pull out a link from back there .......... GPAA Alaska Gold Expedition At Cripple River Camp

Well there ya have it, an 8 week gold prospecting vacation in Nome. If you're lucky you might find enough to pay for it all!

I am with you in that one Stiffnecked, watched that under the ice show and it is not for me either.

The dredge in the summer that they use the loader on is more my style. I cannot sati would ever rule out suction diving, but that seems like a lot more work for not as big a pay out. Granted I have zero plans to go to nome...
