Alaska is my home and has been for a long time, but I'm tired of living out in the bush. I'm thinking of taking a job in Anchorage... But I would rather live out in the valley... I've driven the road between Palmer and Anchorage several times but I don't know how it would be to travel this road every day for a commute. I have horses so I really need the space the valley would provide.
I would sure appreciate some advise/recommendations from those of you who live in or around the Valley or Anchorage. Do they keep the roads good in the winter? How long a drive is it during rush hour? Much traffic? Do people do this long term or it unrealistic?
