So, as my introduction stated, I'm in the Army, currently in the trash can, and my wife and I are pretty set on moving to the Kenai Peninsula a few months after I get out this coming summer (8 months, 1 week, woo!), potentially either November 2013, or March 2014, depending on financial situation. We don't intend to show up broke. I've read about the other happy southerners being ripped to shreds by you all. Anyway, I plan on taking a VA loan for a house with some property, and am currently getting more information about doing so through the VA, and my mother, who is a loan officer/real estate something in Florida.
Other than the fact that I'm currently in the trash can, and have been here once before, I'm stationed in Italy, and I've been to Germany a ton on training rotations, and I've spent a good portion of the past bunch of years straight sucking at life, so I'm quite familiar with the concept of hard work, and overall bad quality of life. My wife is from Maryland, as well.
So my question(s) would be, what's the job market like for someone who can, for all intents and purposes, jack of all trades it through life, what's the hunting like, is anyone here from the Soldotna/Nikiski area who can give me some insight, and anything else I might be missing.
This isn't an into the wild, mccandless, andrew the 17 year old hero, etc story. I'm just trying to buy some land with a house, that I can raise animals on, go hunting, and not see a human being for 6 months if I choose not to.
Thank you. I'm 22, by the way. I decided to retire from socialite civilization.
