Moves to Alaska: A Driver and His Best Friend

May 25, 2011 by Editor

Twice a month, Lynn Erickson drives to Alaska and back. In the five years he has worked as a driver for Hi-Line Moving Services, Lynn has made the 5,000-mile round trip 102 times. 

The Alaska haul, or “running north” as the drivers at the Montana headquarters call it, is the job Lynn has enjoyed most in a long and varied career. He has been a corporate pilot, a police officer and owned his own company in the construction trades. “I could retire,” says Lynn, “but I donʼt want to give up that road.” 

Hi-Line general manager Art Groux thinks itʼs not just the road that Lynn wonʼt give up. “He really likes that red truck,” says Art. “When heʼs not working, Lynnʼs in the shop tinkering and polishing. Our fleet of drivers have a lot of pride in maintaining the equipment and Lynn is a driver that take great pride in his tractor.”   The same is true for those moving household goods to Alaska.
