... you guys are doing it right. Everyone we met was courteous, helpful, friendly, welcoming, and gracious. A few of them said they really loved working there and that a big part of it was how well their chief took care of all of them. And it showed. We were treated like family, the station was left unlocked for us the whole night, and they said we could stay parked there as long as we needed. Chief Rob even gave us a bottle of his family’s homemade maple syrup as a parting ...
