Why would you waste a million dollars on a condo in NYC? Nothing but neighbors above, below and on each side of you. For a million bucks you could buy some really nice digs in Alaska. Plus you could put blue tarps on stuff outside and no one would complain. For a million bucks you could buy a place with no neighbors at all.

LOL - for a million bucks you could get that place with no neighbors at all AND buy your own plane to get there Of course, you might need a few extra bucks to keep a pilot on retainer though.

Ditto Granny's Ditto. You sound like one of those rare souls who can actually get off the ferry with a backpack and dig right in. Even in the depressed little towns there's work to be found if you are willing to do it. There are people who will help you with anything, anytime once they realize you have grit - are "real".

Yeah, I figured it was time for your yearly fly by around here. Been up lately?

To answer your question again I think that most people who move to AK sight unseen are military, as the 2nd poster said.
