There is a good chance I'll be moving to Anchorage soon. I applied for a job that I'll probably get and be moving in a month. I'm pretty experienced from my past jobs, but Alaska scares me.
I'll only have a car so I'm not planning any huge trips for a few years. To be honest, I'll probably only be able to do things around Anchorage or take a short paddling trip or two. Here's what I plan on bringing. If you think I should leave it, or have a better suggestion, let me know. I won't have room to bring everything I own, so I pared it down quite a bit. I put or on some items that I was wanting some thoughts on the most appropriate item. I'm flying and shipping my car, so I want to take as little as possible. This is not all I'm bringing, it's just what I'm wondering about.
