Hello everyone. Iím new to the forum, but have read just about every post on AOF. I am Interested in buying land near the Mat-Su and have been doing my research. The area seems to have all the needed things to make bush life possible. One thing that has become a concern for me after several months of internet research is the amount of subdivisions there seems to be. Most of the land I have found for sale in Alaska is in this area and almost all of it is part of a subdivision. Most people like myself think of retreating to the Alaskan bush to get away from civalization not to live in a subdivision.
How many people are there in this area? Can a guy buy a piece of property where he can get away or are there cabins around every turn? What about hunting, fishing, trapping pressure?
Iím sure no matter where I go I would have a few Neighbors but im not interested in living in the middle of a 100lot subdivision. Am I looking in the wrong part of the state? Any thoughts would be great.
By the way this site is a great wealth of knowledge Thanks for all the input everyone.
