Ok, I'm 44 and have been Ak for 5 years and love it. I teach, my health does great in teh dry, cold weather...So, I need to think about retirement and start building. But, I want off the road system.
So, I'm ignorant on the laws about purchasing land through the state adn also, I've heard that you can make a gold claim and put a movable cabin on it?
If you have any leads on where to look at teh AK state website for land for sale, please let me know.
Also, I'm looking at the area near McGrath to teach in, so, is it as easy as staking a claim to where I can put a movable cabin on it? For how long? Is this a decent plan?
I"m 44, so, this would be great for at least teh next 20 years...after that?
Lastly, I would consider looking at something on teh road system, especially if my health is not doing great. Any ideas on good areas from Anch, to McCarthy, up to fairbanks? I guess the road system is not bad if it is in the sticks....Gold near by would be great!
