ack in ’73 Alaska was a very busy place. We had just begun construction on the Trans-Alaskan Pipeline and since there were not enough Alaskans to do the job, the country was overrun with cheechackos and snow-birds. TAPS, as the huge project was called at that time, was the largest construction project ever attempted.
Now you’re gonna have problems with anything that big! Summer was well underway when the company who employed me sent me to Chandalar to rope the new camp that was sprouting up like crabgrass on the barren tundra.
