I don't believe anyone explicitly pointed this out, but the reason you are getting ribbed is because Alaska isn't exactly the place to move if you like bigger city living. The biggest cities in AK would be considered medium-sized in the reast of the US.

I didn't mean HUGE cities, but cities with about 100,000 people or less. But you're right, I should have clarified that beforehand.

Also, asking such a generalized question makes it difficult to give any serious answers. You'll find that the best threads are the ones where posters are asking about specific things and areas.

I think the best threads are when Met rips ManMountains head off, and spits down his neck.

So maybe Fairbanks if you include the whole borough and Anchorage...

I ding think anywhere or any other city would fit your definition.

Why don't you ban that flipping idiot? He only comes around here when he's on a weekend pass and drunk out of what passes for his mind. I noticed "highlife2" got whacked with the ban stick; Costco must have had a sale on PBR.

Well there are people that say that, and when they get here and the daylight is measured in glimpses, the temp's are in the -50 degree range or in other locations the snow doesn't stop falling until spring... Those will drive some people to depression or worse.

In spring, the snow in some places turns in to a constant rainy drizzle for much of the summer. The Mosquitos can also drive the unknowing into franic insanity as well.

You really need to pick a place and visit it for a bit, with full expectations that you may in fact not like it. There are others that love it. But to drag up anchor and just move here can be a pretty tough gig to pull off if things are not what you thought they would be.

I rather like it, but I do at times enjoy going other places for a bit as well, not often, but now and then.

Was the picture taken in Fairbanks? I assume the mosquitoes are worse inland than along the coast.
