Moving to Alaska

Alaska... "The Last Frontier"

    at over 1.7 million sq km it is the largest state in the union
      (i.e. one fifth the size of the total lower 48 states)
    it has one of the smaller state populations
      ( with more than a third of that population being in Anchorage)
    the large area, limited population and the distance from other states, impacts all costs and often any shipment delays
    travel to Anchorage is a 2000 mile trip from Vancouver, taking up almost 2 days of nonstop driving (i.e. the same distance as Vancouver to Chicago but with very different road conditions)
    weather and in particular, the winter weather from September through April see days with only 3 to 6 hours of daylight and -30 and -40 temperatures are common
    there are roads that are not plowed October to May and communities that can only be accessed by water and air.
    spring, beginning in late April ends as the muddy conditions easing in May
    June through August offers as much as 20 hours of daylight and temperatures in the 60's and 70's. This best time of year to move.

   Alaska attracts folks who love outdoor living. Less than 10% of the state is inhabited by humans. Mount McKinley, the highest point in North America, plus a dozen of the other tallest mountains, join over 3 million lakes and tens of thousands of square miles of glaciers as home to Kodiak bears, caribou, moose, whales, salmon and other wild life. More than half the states revenue comes from oil and those moving there tend to have careers that develop and work with natural resources, while loving nature and possibly prefer solitude. It's values include natural comparisons; functional and performance versus style and image, people to love it or hate it as they run into others there who are friendly or who want to be left alone.
