Thanks MissingAllFOur! That is one of our concerns with the Minnesota/Wisconsin area, but at the same time, they seem like the best match in other ways. I don't know. So much to think about. What it will probably come down to is where I can get a job and where we can afford housing. It may not end up being what we wanted exactly, but we are getting to the point where we just want something, somewhere besides here!!!!

Hehe - maybe you'll get fed up with your family in a few years and move back to AK before the taxes get you But seriously, doing the math on taxes vs. regular cost of living, it might turn out to be a wash either way; and in that case getting a place near the folks that you can find work and affordable housing is probably the best way to go... just hold off on buying a house for a while to see how things go. I'd hate to have you get stuck somewhere with a mortgage if it doesn't end up suiting you!

Being a former hunter I'd lok at Wyoming ;idaho and montana. Many of the northern states have really limited hunting with alot of hunters in any given area. It also seems a better fit to someone who likes Alaska. My family is from pennsylvannia and hunters are really all over the place compared to if you are use to alot of open land.I'd also think that good property is less expensive than the northeast part of the country.The game is also of a much larger variety than many states. Colorado is ideal but too expensive now days. Good luck and good hunting.

Thanks for the tips! We actually would really love Idaho, it is beautiful- but doesn't seem affordable for land. Maybe we aren't looking in the right places? Also Montana, Wyoming, and the Dakotas seem great. I spent much time in those places as a kid. Thanks for all the input. We aren't any closer to a decision, but we are narrowing it down!
