In winter 2008, we heard the local community gas station and garage, which was to be purchased by another local mechanic, fell through. Suddenly, the boys dream of opening their own repair shop became a reality. The first challenge was relocating the ridiculous amount of snowmobile parts the boys had accumulated over the years to their new working site – we spent the next 3 years clearing out parts from every corner of the property.
On May 14, 2008, the Baikie family took over the new commercial garage location with the intent of operating a seasonal snowmobile shop; summers would be free. However, it would end up working out that way. The long-time former owner of the gas bar, Mr. Edward Blake, had built two vehicle garage bays on the property, but never really used them for automobile repairs. We quickly found that the residents of North West River and Sheshatshiu, desperately needed cars and trucks fixed, and we were continually asking if we had vehicle hoists.
