      Lol. I almost mentioned hippies...

      I do love it there. I miss our boat, which my dad took south when he retired.

        I plan on moving to Alaska in a few years. I've always wanted to get away from the busy fast paced Southern California area and live a slower life. Only problem is I know absolutely nothing about alaska lol. I know I dont want neighbor's for a few miles. Price range would be around 300,000k. Want a nice sized house for this price. (where I live in california that buys you a 2 bedroom shack.) I tried to go online and look at some of the houses but they have all these different area's I know nothing about... Any imput? I would like to stay away from the larger city area's. Sorry if this is not the area to look but I dont what what area that would be.
        Your best bet is to take a vacation to Alaska and scout out some areas. One person's hell is another person's paradise: so what we may tell you is a great spot to live, you may hate and vice-a-verca.

        Good luck!

            Fairbanks isn't so bad. It's cold, and there's snow, but life moves on. It doesn't stop people from living. You could live in Salcha or Nenana or Fox, be out of town and secluded. Drive 20-40 minutes and you have Wal Mart, Fred Meyer grocery store, movie theater, restaurants etc. If you can handle a little longer of a drive you could go to Delta and be really secluded.but still be an hour or so from the city.

              And like most places in Alaska, you have to balance out the good with the bad. It gets cold in the winter, sure, but it's also one of, if not the hottest, parts of the state in the summer.

                My vote would be for the Kenai Peninsula, but I agree you should take at least one or two vacations to scout out places. My wife and I work in Anchorage but we'll probably move to the KP when we retire.

                    Hahaha...

                    But it's true, I swear! And it wasnt too hilly or snow up to my waist. Most of the time.
