The partner and I live in Alaska. I work for an environmental engineering firm, and she’s studying to be a PA. Even though we are in Anchorage, and fairly far south by Alaska standards, it is cold and dark here for about 6 months of the year. Even for those of us with active lives, the climate does lend itself to a lot of time indoors during those winter months. So you can drink yourself silly and watch movies all winter, or you can take advantage of the seasons and spend as much time as possible playing with friends in the backcountry and fueling your adventures with incredible quantities of good food, while sitting around the kitchen table with friends, and also drinking lots of wine. Not a bad lifestyle at all. This site is an attempt to capture some of this. Thanks for stopping in.
