So, fellow Alaska newbies, what is the best advice you have received prior to or since moving here? Since I' wondering about proven results, I'm asking mostly about the advice you have actually taken.

My favorite so far, received just the other day: remove and warm/dry the felt liners in your boots every night. Even if you don't think they are damp, they probably are.

LOL, this was for advice people *did* take.

And yes, I agree, even if it means saying "do as I say, and not as I have done."

When you think you have enough clothing on you don't put more on LOL


I can only speak for the Fairbanks area. The winter coat that you have will be good in the spring and fall. Get a winter jacket from a local supplier.
