Hey everyone, I'm going to be relocating from upstate N.Y to Kenai Alaska in a year or two. Ive got a few questions first though. My plan is to buy land before I relocate. I will be driving my 78 Ford 4x4 pickup and hauling a 28 foot enclosed car trailor. I've been looking on realator websites and I'm seeing alot of parcels for sale. 4-6acres of land for 8-12,000$. Does this sound right to you guys or does the price being that low mean the land is unbuildable? My plan is first year to build a barn that the car trailor will fit in. So I can sleep in it and use a wood stove to heat the barn and the trailor. Also I want to build a chicken coop as I plan to still eat eggs daily. Can I legally sleep in my car trailor if its on my owned land in kenia pennisulia?
Second is jobs. I know with layoffs within the pipeline as well as military being pulled jobs are scarce. I have experience in machanic(not certified), house construction, basic wiring, roofing, drywall etc.. I'm willing to work in the lumber industry. Pretty much any job I'm willing to work. How is the job scene in kenai? I will have 10-15,000$ in my pocket after my property is paid and all expensive getting to Alaska. That should hold me off for awhile as I plan to go dry cabin living for now to establish a foundation of living. Food will be eggs, fishing, hunting. Only store bought food will be vegetables(first year), canned food, spices etc... I just want to make sure I will be able to find a job, I don't want to die from starvation, freezing or not paying my taxes.
