Hey there everyone,
I am just here to introduce myself. My husband and I are relocating to Alaska next month. We have been planning on this for about 4 years and last year at the end of the year we purchased a home and we will be there in a few weeks! We are from NH and purchased a house a smidge north of Palmer. Currently we have a tenant but she is out at the end of this month.
We will be driving with our 3 great danes in 2 separate cars and coming up through North Dakota (unless you have a better way to go) I have tentatively booked some hotels in the smaller towns on the ALCAN because I need dog friendly places. My husband and I are driving on different days because i will be making frequent stops for 2 dogs and myself!
I am so excited but right now my current house is loaded with boxes and trash bags, piles of "keep" "toss" and "sell" to limit the amount we are shipping. It still feels very surreal!
We are both telecommuters and both hope to keep our jobs the way they are except we have run into a wee internet problem with the home we have chosen. We are thinking about answering a room mate ad in either Wasilla or Palmer. That way the person we are renting from will basically get the house to themselves and only have to deal with a room mate on work days between 8-4! The best roomies ever! lol
Anyway just a hello and maybe you can be my sanity when I am driving
