I now live with my first born daughter, two grandsons and my son-in-law. I help them pay off their mortgage so they can fulfill their lifelong dream of . . .
ugh! MOVING TO ALASKA and living in some god-forsaken wilderness in a cabin they build for themselves.
I kid you not. Can you imagine?
Actually, I think this dream is great. If you build your home right, it can be efficient and completely off the grid. Imagine having no gas, water, or electric bills? Have a simple 4WD Jeep to get into town. You wake up every morning, and look out onto nature's incredible scenery from the security of your chalet. No nosey neighbors (except curious bears and animals). Sounds like a slice of "Paradise" if you ask me. Also, I've heard Alaska's taxes or very low to non-existant. I wouldn't live up above the Arctic Circle, but Fairbanks, Jeunoa, or similar parts would be fine. I'd also settle for areas of Oregon and Washington state.
