Rick Ness And Parker Schnabel Finally Talk

Gold Rush fans know that it has been years since Rick Ness and Parker Schnabel have talked. Parker is the one who found Rick when he was playing stand-up bass for the .357 String Band. He talked him into joining his crew. Rick had previously worked for his father’s construction company, so he knew his way around the big machines.

However, things got tense when Rick had different ideas from Parker. They butt heads many times. Then, Rick started his own mining team and the two became estranged.

But, based on this week’s preview for the upcoming episode, there seems like no animosity whatsoever. The two give each other a friendly hug. Then Parker tells him how he knew Rick would be back, and Rick really seems to appreciate his support.

Then Rick admitted that years ago, he gave his best work to Parker. Parker then admitted he was at his worst during this time. Parker also pointed out how hard they all worked. But, Rick was ready to do it again. He has put it all on the line and he is determined.

Now, Rick has a favor. He needs a loader. Can Parker help out?
