My fiancee and I have been planning to go off the grid for a year now. After researching many lower 48 states I have decided that Alaska would be perfect for us. Can someone lead me in the right direction on a good spot for the beginning Alaskan?
I found this site that offers cheap land. http://dnr.alaska.gov/mlw/landsale/otc/ But I need help finding something that I might be able to live through.
Would like a pre-built cabin or hire locals to help build.
I would like to have a garden in the summer months,canning - fishing - hunting would be primary source of food, I don't mind the cold but might need a milder cold, would like to use solar, wind and hydro power, I like my space but would like to have neighbors within a mile of me, seasonal road to the property...ect.
I know this move will not be easy to start...going into this with my eyes wide open.
Any help would be appreciated.
