I am close to finishing college with a dual major of exercise science and business management. I am an outdoors junkie hunting, fishing, camping, rafting, hiking, and general exploration. I currently live in the North Georgia mountains. Here is my dilemma, For the past two years I have been obsessed with the thought of Alaska living. Trading the 9-5 everyday grind for a real chance to live. I read so many post about how people wish they would have made the jump and never did, now they have a miserable desk job in the city and the most exciting thing related to the outdoors is mowing the lawn on Saturday. I have a great family and serious girlfriend. I just do not know if my girlfriend would ever go for it, I do not exactly have the funds to fly her out there and let Alaska convince her. I just have this constant itch telling me "just do it, who knows what could happen!" The fact of never seeing my family is making this decision even harder.
My ultimate dream would be able to convince my entire family and girlfriend to move but that's doubt full.
Just looking for some insight and to all you Alaskans, I'M JEALOUS!
