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

    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.

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.

    Good luck!
    I'll take a vacation 1st before any major decisions... Thanks for all your help.

    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.

    Lol. I almost mentioned hippies...

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

    Shhh. That's my retirement spot.

    Homer is great. I spent the majority of the summers there either working or on our boat for about 10 years. Bunch of quirky people that live there, with the common theme being everyone wants their privacy.

    Homer is the place for you. A decent amount of snow but still has pavement. You can be 20 minutes from the grocery store/movie theater/McDonalds while still not being able to hear a car or see a neighbor. The land outside of town is cheap.

    Yeah, that's pretty darn cold.

    Don't move to Fairbanks...they have snow but the temps keep lots of folks inside for months at a crack. I have a picture of the thermometer on my porch from Dec 26...temp reads -51.
