I think that this is my last chance on 1-12-2009 to make a decision to move up to Alaska. I don't have very much left in my savings, but enough to make the move and rent a place around $700 or less. I have enough money to last me for about 3 months up there. I don't see a problem getting a job within that time, but I'm having problems getting a place to rent. When I contact places up in Alaska to rent they seem to stop emailing me when they find out that I'm in a different state. This makes me wonder how people move to another state to rent a place then.
I was wondering where do you get that plug in thing for your car when the temp is in the negatives?
I have a 2wd 1997 Nissan XE Truck and was wondering what should I have on the tires? stud tires or snow chains?
Another thing is I'm confused about the gun permit. I was wondering if I bought a .22 rifle in my state and then take it to Alaska would I need a concealed weapons permit? I'm sure my concealed weapons permit is no good in Alaska anyways.
What do you guys think I should do. This is pretty much my one in lifetime chance to make this move. I know I'm taking a chance, but that might be the thing to make my dream come true or it might break my dream and put me in a sucky situation.
