My new home away from home

Right now I am the only one of the staff that is sleeping in the main lodge building. The traffic is quite steady on the highway. Lots of motorcycles, motor homes towing small cars, freight trucks hauling prefabs buildings to set up at mining camps, and long haul freight trucks heading to Alaska. For most north bound traffic, this lodge is the place to fill up on fuel.  The last fuel stop south of here is at Kitwanga, nearly 250 km, and the next one north of here is about 150 km. Nearly all tourists stop and get fueled up here, where gasoline is $1.12 per litre. There is a team of biologists camping here now and they go out by helicopter each day to check on some mountain goats that they had radio-collared.
