So my wife and I are considering a move to Ketchikan from the Anchorage area. We will have been living around Anchorage for two years. So we're just sort of wondering, is this a crazy idea? We'd have jobs (or we wouldn't go) and the housing looks more affordable, but we really, really like southcentral and above.
So what's the deal? No moose hunting? Do you absolutely have to have a boat to get anywhere? Does it really rain every day? Basically, we like to hike, camp, hunt, and fly fish. Is this the place for us or should we hold out for the Kenai or somewhere in the Bush?
