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.
