I was wondering what people thought about Living out in the woods in Alaska. I grew up on a farm and love the woods and hate the city and suburbs.

I moved to Florida, St. Petersburg area about 4 yrs ago and hate it here. There are people upon people and I hate to judge but most in 6 blocks sqaure of where I live are Alcholic's, drug addicts, or criminal's of some sort.

My goal would be too find a place out away from city's and have a small cabin (basic) and chicken's, and other animal's. Do some Hunting, and Gardening. Basic living alternative energy sources, off the grid!

Only going into town once in awhile to buy supplies I cannot supply for my self. I am older now and in the last 12 years have tried communal living situation's and those were very unsatisfactory.

Does anyone think Alaska would be a good idea?

We have a few members from the far-north here and they seem to be doing well enough. One thing that a member from another forum that I frequent has said - there isn't enough to do in Alaska (he lives there) so drugs and booze flow faster than the water during spring-breakup ..

If you want rural - maybe talk with SurvivalNut who if I remember right is in Washington State .. the weather is good for growing plants, raising animals and there is still lots of rural-areas that you could probably move into.
