I will be moving to Alaska, like others in this forum, due to military transfer. I've been facinated by AK since I was a young kid! I will be stationed at JBER. I DO NOT want to live in Anchorage. I'm moving to AK to enjoy the AK outdoors. Not become a "city slicker". I'm going to have to rent vs. purchase because I already own 2 homes in the lower 48. I only need space for myself and my furniture. Any suggestions on rental properties in not-so-condenced locations with good mountain views and close to good fishing/hunting but within 45 minutes or so of JBER?
I will be arriving in Whittier via ferry in early May. I already have reservations for the boat, but does anyone have any advice for the 4.5 day ferry ride? I've been on ferries before, but never longer than a couple of hours. I'm actually driving cross country from NC to WA, then hopping on the ferry. I CAN'T WAIT! Any suggestions would be appreciated to make my transition a smooth one.
