Mountainman, I though you felt safer living self-sufficient in the bush? Just curious why the change of heart?

He probably is taking into consideration the fact that he has to work for a living, like most people, so he'll need to be in a more populated area.

We always seem to think that changing scenery will change our life. The only problem with this idea is that we bring ourselves along. Our family is considering a move up to Alaska as a place of refuge from the coming collapse. We are Christians and want to raise our family in a secure environment where we can grow our own food and harvest what God supplies from His earth. Any thought on where to locate, mild climate, good soil?

I appreciate your analysis of the collapse of our financial system. Though man implemented the collapse God brought causative agent as He hates unjust weights and measures.

Here is a place to consider if you want your own garden.

It looks informative.

But if all else fails, you can fall back on this:

Mild Climate?

You can grow your own food in Alaska but you will need a greenhouse to get much of a variety I think. Root crops grow great, as does broccoli, peas, cabbage and some others. But it is harder to grow some other crops.

If you work at it you can definetely grow your own crops here. Potatos are always a good bet.

I think Rance grows most of his.

Of course, you can allways by canned crops...ooops.
