With my wife in the medical field we must locate within an hour driveof hospital and be on roads that are maintained for her to be able to work. Ihave always grown large gardens and been able to put up enough vegetables forthe year for my family and even a few others. I also put up enough fish, andgame meat to do my family from year to year. We also raise dairy goats for milk,hogs, meat rabbits, chickens for meat and eggs as well. My concern is I havenever been to Alaska and from my understanding there are parts of Alaska thatare better for gardening and harvesting game for the table as well. We plan torent for a while and take the time to look around before purchasing anyproperty.
