A place people spend thousands of dollars to visit-Alaska

When my husband first found out he was going to Alaska, he was livid. He'd been stationed at Bragg for 4 years, and before that, came from Ft Sill, OK. Originally from Michigan, he had vowed never to return to life about the Mason-Dixon line. That was fine by me. I loved southern living. Not so much in Fayetteville, because that place is the butthole of North Carolina, but out in the country southern hospitality thrives, and I met some of the most amazing people alive.

After a while, the idea of Alaska grew on us. Like I mentioned, he's from Michigan, and I hale from Upstate, NY. We were both raised in the wilderness of the North, so Alaska seemed to be taking us back to our roots. Hunting, fishing, mudding. It all happens here. Yes, it snows a lot, but we're both used to that.

The only thing that is truly different than the lower 48 is the sunlight. It's crazy how it'll be light out long after we go to bed, and before we even wake up. Summer in this place is spectacular. Hopefully, the winters won't make us regret our new found love for this amazing state.
