So I took the photos and put my ebay user name accross them to stop that happening, was getting ready to post it again, but now all the photos will have highly discriptive ownership rights of the photo on them so it won't pop up somewhere else again.

Buying land completely sight unseen is a horrible idea.

And you better understand what building on it will be like when it's 60 miles from any road... Take a hint from the video - everything transported in winter... and on snowmobile - not plane.

hmm where do you think your at?? I was only 8 years old just before statehood lived in Fairbanks Alaska
those were the best times of my live.
this isnt reno nevada. Dead man lake sits out in no man's land it's like wasilla was back in 1970 nothing there but hippies.
You have to be in dmm good shape to walk in or out.remember that no one is going come in to help you if your laying on
the floor from passing out. it gets down to 68 below sometimes for two or three weeks then settles down to maybe -25
oncw winter sets in i doubt if your going anywere so u had better have enough food and firewood to make it through to
may 1st.
then your be seeing bears and more bears!!! that area has more bears then mesqutoes to a square mile so keep an eye
open while walking or else your be attact and might become their dinner for a week.you might think about a electric fence
around your cabin for a while. solar powered 12v should do well.
good luck and remember dont feed the bears
pat

Do you get out much? I'm out in that area a lot over the years and have a totally different perspective of that area than you do. I built a cabin south of there in an even more remote place than Deadman Lake and did just fine.

Are you really from Alaska or just reading up on it and pretending to be?

I have read over this thread because I purchased a lot on the south side of Deadman Lake.

I plan on moving up there either this winter or next spring, whichever time is best for hauling things. I'd like to know how things turned out for you guys? I've got all kinds of questions to ask but it might be easier if I find out in person. I will probably be up there in Fairbanks around November, I might stay there for the winter a get things ready to move out to the lake in Spring. I'd very much appreciate any advice from guys who've already done so.

Just some background, I'm also an army vet. I've got seasonal work up there this summer, then the following spring and summer, and so on, though it is in a different part of the state.

Thank you, I will.

I just wanted to make contact here before you get a call from a stranger asking questions. I'm going to be up around Aniak for work this summer, after that I will head to Fairbanks and start figuring out how to get things out there to the lake and what needs to be done. So, may I call you around October? I can send you a PM beforehand as a reminder.

And thanks, I really appreciate any help.
