50 miles from Wasilla if you take Anchorage out of the equation isn't going to leave you with much as far as stores & amenities are concerned.

I was thinking of how to say the same thing, but you did better than I could have!

Thinking "sociologically", the community I feel most part of is the one we've created for ourselves here - defined by the friends we've made, the activities I enjoy and the other connections I have - work/church/outings, etc. Anyplace can stink if you don't get out and become part of it.......

Very true. There are times we've been to Palmer and it was extremely windy and then got back to Wasilla with no winds at all.
