I've sold my cabin and land down in the Kenai near Soldoltna and just bought a new property near Trapper Creek. I've never stayed the winter before. I've only summered up here going on 20 summers in a row.
I now plan to live year-round on the new place. It's about 3/4 mile in off the Parks Hwy on a gravel road that's more or less maintained year round. The couple of folks I've talked to say that it can go unplowed for 2 - 3 days after a big storm though. I'm a little concerned about not being able to get out after a big snow and am planning to leave a vehicle near the road and snowmobile in and out. Am I asking for mischief? I suppose so.
Also, I'm wondering just what kind of changes to expect as a year-round resident?
