I should be coming up there between June and August. Which is better? To drive or to fly? That is the question! I am coming from Arkansas. Will be moving to Wasilla. I was told the only way to really get there was to fly in. Is this correct? If so is it even worth shipping my minivan once I am there. Better to buy once there. Any other info would be awesome. Coming by myself so not a lot of tag along stuff. Mostly booksI was also told to fly and just ship every thing. That would be preety expensive right

Thanx! That seems to be everyone's consensus. I plan on loading the van and going. Is there anythingI should bring along? Don't have any family or many friends to be able to have anything sent that I should have remembered. Some things that might be cheaper here.

Be aware that you'll need a passport to cross the border with Canada then. Also, Canada has restrictions on guns and past convictions (including DUI).
