It's Still Alaska!

A recent event reminded me why I live in this great state. One of our crew was delivering some materials to one of our projects in Chistochina on the Tok cutoff this past weekend when he blew out a tire. He had already had a flat on another tire so he had no spare. Able to find a friend in Slana for himself and his family to stay while we sent him a new tire, he waited. When he finally headed back to his truck to change the tire he found that the crew who was working on the road (CRUZ CONSTRUCTION), had jacked up his truck, pulled the tire, fixed the tire and put it back on the truck without so much as a note. We had to ask around to find who to thank.
Do you really think that would happen anywhere else? I already new CRUZ CONSTRUCTION was a great company but an act like this really shows they are much more. If you see the CRUZ crew working on the highway, give them a thumbs up, we could all learn something from them.

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
