    Default Information Alaskan outdoors

    Goodmorning all,

    I've been searching for a good outdoor forum for a long time, and finnaly found one with some expert outdoorsman!

    Let me introduce myself first. Im Danny, twentytwo years young and currently living and working in The Netherlands. The Wilderness is always on my mind, so i've finnaly come to the conclusion i need to find a place to really enjoy and experience this, to the fullest, and Alaska must be the wildest place these days to do so. The wildlife, wilderness and beautifull surroundings are a real spirit booster!

    So my plan would be to safe enough money to buy a small piece of land and build an cabin on there. Supplying myself with the use of a garden and some small farm animals like goat and chicken. Buy a basic supply of food before winter falls so that im still alive when spring arrives!

    After reading this you're probely know this requires a huge amount of experience and knowlegde. So with this first forum post im asking yall to share any experience, knowlegde and tips to do so! Any information about this subject is welcome and very appreciated!

    There is a learning curve here. There are different levels of awareness.I consider myself an alert heads up sort of person. I think it took me about three years to get a full grasp of the Alaska situation.
    I'm suggesting that you rent and live here for a while before you buy and build.

    One other thing, not mentioned before, does someone know the bear populations in the different regions? Which regions are the highest populated, and which poorly. Would be good to know!

    Thanks,
