Hi....I'm surprised that with all the hullabaloo about Sarah Palin that anyone doesn't know about Alaska.

Temperature depends on where you are. Some places 30 degrees, some places -60 degrees.

Cost is always a big problem. Especially in most places when the only link to 'civilization' is via plane. Last I heard milk could run as high as 7.00 a gallon and gas 11.00 a gallon.

The nice thing is that there is no income tax in the state and that every resident gets a check each year as part of the oil revenues. Some places do have sales taxes to get a bit of extra revenue.

Because of high prices hunting is a big activity to provide food and wood is probably the main source of heat.

Check out The History Channel - Home Page for the History Channel. They have been running 'Ice Road Truckers' which is a real eye opener about Alaska. They also are going to be running one called 'Tougher in Alaska'.

We cruised to Alaska a couple years ago and it is truly a wild and beautiful place.
