i don't particularly enjoy it...i always have to wait on my parts, even OEM ****, and shipping really sux...9 month winters at -50 aren't much fun either, mosquitos are a bitch in the summer...i've heard the anchorage area is a helluva lot beter than here though, so i can't speak for the whole state
I lived in Kodiak for 4 years when I was younger. We moved there from Miami. Talk about your culture shock. I've alsways said, Alaska is a great state to visit, but it sucks to live there. The Mosquitos, flip flop night and day, slush and the cold, way outweigh the beauty of the scenery and culture, IMHO.
