"The Tripod could go out at anytime" The main channel of the Tanana River is open about a 1/4 of a mile downstream as well. Its supposed to cool off tonight to about 27 degrees with a chance of snow - we'll see what happens. As of April 30th 2018, The 2018 Jackpot is $225,000. This afternoon the Tripod tipped upstream, it sounded the siren however the clock did not stop. There have been cases when the Tripod has fallen over and an ice berg or a log has taken the wire out and stopped the clock. The ice is very thin and rotten. There are alot of open holes causing channels to be cut into the river ice. The Tripod could go at anytime!!! GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR GUESSES!!!
