Good examples of true Alaska spirit

I was born and raised in Seward and only left Alaska a few years ago. However, my wife and I have maintained and live in a cabin at the head of Kachemak Bay for the past 25 years during the summer.

Due to health issues we sold our boat years ago and have used Bay Excursions for transportation to and from our cabin. Owner and operator, Karl Stoltzfus, and his nephew, Garrett, have always been very accommodating. They are always on time, have very reasonable rates, friendly, courteous and always going that extra mile for us.  

We also own a “beater” SUV to travel in while we’re in Homer. This past summer I had two different incidents with the SUV. Both times I went to Boog’s Automotive for help.Both times they dropped what they were doing and fixed the issues. They were accommodating, friendly and very affordable.

My wife and I would like to publicly thank both Karl, of Bay Excursions, and Boog’s Automotive for their true Alaska spirit. 

I would highly recommend both of the above mentioned businesses if you need a trip across the bay or need your vehicle repaired. Thanks, again, from my wife and me to two local Homer businesses who have the true Alaska spirit.
