I've been considering moving to Alaska.

I've been considering moving to Alaska. I currently live in Florida and as soon as a graduate college I've crafted a plan to travel across the country as I move. Where in the state should I move to? What are some important American landmarks I should visit on my journey? How should I budget accordingly, and what time of year should I attempt this 30+ day adventure?

    right... have you ever dealt with -30 degrees and days which are between 3 hours long and just non-existent? Yeah... a big change, I'd visit it first for a trip in October/November and get a feel first. Talk to the locals about your situation and they can tell you more about what you need to more than anyone not in Alaska tbh.

      Not all of Alaska sees extreme cold like Fairbanks. The Alaska Panhandle has surprisingly mild temps due to warm ocean currents - it is the cloudiest region in America.

      This is good advice thank you. So it won't be possible to drive my way up? I have a car I'd like to hold on to... sorry if I sound stupid I'm very naive and have never relocated before

      Driving to Alaska is very doable, but gas is expensive. Everything is expensive in Alaska. Bring a reliable car.

      If you're serious about moving to alaska go there in december or january. That's when the weather is the worst so you can find out if you're willing to endure this shit every year for several months

      Dumbass. Move there in April or May, get a summer job, THEN see if you are willing to stay the winter.

      You have a pretty common thing where you know what you DON'T like (you are frustrated with your current situation) but you don't quite know what you DO like. You've built up a fantasy about this place that is the polar opposite of your current world, and you assume that since it is so dramatically different, your life will also be the polar opposite of what it currently is.

      This is entirely normal and pretty much everybody goes through a version of this. Sometimes you get lucky and make a huge change and it works out, you fall into the amazing career, you meet the right girl, and you talk about how great it was to pick up and move across the country. These are the stories you actually here. Unfortunately, most people who make a desperation move wind up dealing with the same issues there that they did in their current place. Your environment matters but it can't fix everything.

      I'm just saying this because you should understand what is motivating you. Your early 20's are a time for experimentation and I think you absolutely should move out to Alaska or Wyoming or wherever the frick. But don't expect the place to do the work for you. Ask, what will make YOU happy? What do you feel naturally drawn to? Do you want a woman? Do you want an outdoorsy job? Do you want to make money? Do you want to find community? Start there and work backwards to find the right destination...

      Maybe OP does not believe in happiness if he wants to build a cabin innawoods and live like a mountain man. It is a life of brute, stolid endurance and patience.

      I think he just wants to move someplace to Alaska, not the woods but maybe just the urge to be on the last frontier. Anyway OP, consider that unless you are in the Anchorage area or Fairbanks, you are going to basically only be able to leave via plane and/or boat but a plane is preferred anyway, especially in the southern thumb.

          Yeah, you CAN drive to Alaska in general, but the parts reachable by car are mainly Anchorage and Fairbanks, most other places are by boat or plane. Hell, you could relocate to Kodiak Island. Basically, In a good bit of Alaska, Southern Tumb, and Kodiak, you can take a Ferry but as you can imagine, frequent trips can become pricy. Alaska DOT does provide a ferry service but sometimes it might not be available due to rough seas.

      I'm not a chud and I'd like to do this too. Is it really so ridiculous? Nature is beautiful and I would like to be immersed by it.
      There are hundreds of youtube channels of young women who moved out into the woods alone. It's not really a thing specific to one group of people

          Thinking about moving to Alaska as a pilot. Might just become an airline chud though.

          >moving to alaska = leaving civilization
          homie what? Anywhere you can get Amazon Prime to deliver whatever the frick you want straight to your door counts as civilization in my book.

      why are you so obsessed with "civilization"?
      there are many people that are happier living alone in the woods. thousands of people like this in montana and alaska. what's wrong with that?

          I just want to escape my current shithole situation and I’ve always felt misplaced in city environments. The few times I’ve managed to get a break from my garbage state I’ve always enjoyed the cold and I want to put my roots down somewhere kinda isolated and up north what with the way the earth is heading. In a way I’m the opposite of a chud - I’m moving because I believe in things like the hole in the ozone and rising sea levels are going to make living around the equator intolerable. I understand I sound like a dummy… that’s why I’m here asking questions.

      Yes. Fish has many proteins, omegas, and oils which are good for me while also being low in fat.

    I'll try to hijack this tread. I'm looking into working the summer season in the fishing industry in Alaska. Apparently the money is really good. I've been doing some research and apparently the easiest thing to do would be to sign up with one of those on-shore plants that ship you in, give you food and housing, have you gut salmons non-stop for a few weeks and then ship you back.

    That being said I would be more interested in working on boats as deckhands, so I can meet people and make experiences and make more money in the next few summers. But jobs like these are more difficult to find on the internet. I've met some people that did so but I wouldn't know how to contact them.

    Anyway, anyone has experiences?

    • 8 months ago

      I'd recommend it, but I'll give you the negatives. The experience is a miserable job, and you might be responsible for some amount of travel. Which will suck if you're only on a 60 day contract or whatever. Everybody that does it is a huge drug addict, prostitute mongerer, drunk, and will probably want to fight about something. Not that I judge that, but all this comes with the warning that you can get caught in a bad loop pretty easily. They blow all their money. If you don't do that and keep the degeneracy in check you can make it back without STI, GSW, or months of grueling money without a buck to show for it. Just get on a ship, the rest will come naturally.

        Have you tried personally, or know someone who did? I'm still looking but I can't find many offers on the internet, is it too early for the season? Also all sites I'm looking for info in, including the .gov one, mention the fact that a boat with too many vacancies might signify that their secuirity equipment is shit and people got hurt/wouldn't go back for a million dollars, but I can't really find further details.
