Tougher In Alaska: Electric Linemen

Airdate:
What does it take to keep the power on in a state where more than half of its people live off the grid, and where plunging temperatures, high winds and heavy snow loads can snap even the hardiest overhead electrical wires and transmission towers? Geo flies out to the remote village of Kasigluk to help install power poles and string electrical wire by hand (there are no bucket trucks in the bush) and he'll dig in with the linemen of the Golden Valley Electric Association during the infamously bitter winters in Fairbanks as they brave temps as low as minus 40, just to keep the lights on and heating systems going in the state's second largest city.
