    like ancient Abraham walking by faith, starting with a chainsaw and a promise, with God’s blessings on your family, you’ve build something great! Look forward to doing business with you!

    Great video. As a helicopter mechanic after military my aviation career started in the Tongass logging with a helicopter on POW island. I miss it there in Southeast Alaska and enjoyed your video that brought back memories of long hours and hard work but one of the best times of my life. That was 30 years ago.
