Most noteworthy, I am the “Local Expert” on Travel Channel’s © Dig Wars – Ruby Arizona © in the summer of 2013. As a result, my role on the show takes approximately 8 hours of time to produce 3 minutes on the show. Our particular portion of this episode takes place inside of our Antique Mall in Tucson, Arizona. We are located about 71 miles north of Ruby, Arizona.
Ruby, Arizona is a ghost town 50 miles southwest of Tucson and 4 miles north of the Mexico border. It is surrounded by the Coronado National Forest in an area of rugged mountains, semi-arid deserts and abundant wildlife.
During the show’s filming, we have to cordon off the rest of our store from the general public. *Consequently, the show is entirely done with a script with the sole purpose to entertain the viewer. *Most relevant, the items on the show have “extra value” due to the fact that they: (1) “find” them in a Arizona Ghost town and attain that providence. (2) Appear on a national treasure hunter’s television show and attain that prestige. Finally, I hope you enjoy the show. My role starts at 16:38. Thanks for watching!
