Iíve been planning my move to AK for the last 8 months. Iíll be moving up from Montana. My original plan was to move in July. But....my wife and I will be closing on a house in Wasilla by mid March, and I have a three week window in April if we decided to move then. The wife and kids are pushing for us to move in April rather then July.
My question is; how are the services that early in the spring? We're planning on camping a bit on the way up, but I donít want to push the need for some unexpected services that arenít open that early; gas, mechanic, one flat tire too many, etc. Our truck and boat trailer are both new and well maintained, but you just never know. It seems May and June is about the time everything opens up for the summer rush.
I know the weather cannot be predicted that early (April) and there is a good chance of snow etc. Iíll be moving with a large U-haul truck towing my 19Ft boat, followed by the wife in our F250.
Iíve been reading this forum for months, and have received great info and advice on fishing and boating, thought I would give you all a crack at moving up in April versus July. Thanks!
