Our oldest son, Mardy, was up in Anchorage for 7 yrs with the Air Force, retired, came to NC in 2003 and just went back to work for Shell Oil in 2014 and is coming back in Oct. I've been up there 3 or 4 times both in the winter, summer and last Labor Day. Scenery is absolutely breathtaking. I think I could live there, but TOWTA says "Absolutely NOT". Went 'snow machining' one winter and it is unbelievable. The lower 48 has nothing even close as far as snow machining or scenery.
