Hello folks,I am a retired from the US Marine Corps last year and would like to settle in Alaska.I love the cold weather and hunting .I have a lot of Arctic survival skills as I skied and spent several entire winters above the Arctic circle in Norway most of the time in tents with Yukon stoves or less.My Dad was living and working in Alaska when WW2 broke out and then left to join the Marines.After the war(s) in the late fiftys before I was born he went back for a few years to live but my mother did not like it.I grew up on stories about Alaska but unfortunately I have never got there (yet).Couple of questions;I wont need a job as I have a real good pension but how are prices for land and a cabin? Also can I drive my Land Rover up with my weapons through Canada? Or is it possible to take the ferry from Washington state and bypass Canada altogether? I really do not know where to begin and any help would be really appreciated.This seems like a real good forum and I am sure to gain a lot of useful information from it! Semper Fi!
