I know there have been similar threads, but all a bit outdated.
I currently live on Kodiak with my wife and 3 young boys. Not immediate, but we may look to relocate to Anchorage in around 2 years time for my wife's professional advancement.
The need is for her to work in Anch itself.
We would like to buy land and build our own place.
I know it won't be anything like Kodiak, but what are best surrounding areas that are commuteable (40mins), good for boys (they will be 11, 7 and 6 when we move), good schools, good outdoors access (for Dad!) and reasonable land prices.
I know that is a big list, but some pointers so I can start the research would be helpful.
