Hello people. Long time survival student here starting back in 1973 when I home steaded Alaska (a story in it self) learning from the Native Alaskans as well as from my own Native American background and from every source I could find and still learning new idea's/techniques. Having moved from god's country to the desert I have been polishing my skills in the most hostile enviornment to date and it has indeed taxed my skills to the limit. Hopefully this is a active forum from which I can not only learn more but also impart that which I have learned from years of experience to others.

Hello and welcome from Alaska! I imagine you have something some great stories of your time in the bush. I have my little piece of heaven an undisclosed location somewhere between Sutton and Glennallen.

Alaskajohn mine was in the mentasta area..bear valley to be exact. Anthonca as for leaving after 19 years....2 months shy of 20 had a rather nasty common law marriage deal and needing a break I came down to my home town in Wa state where I met a lady from California and dang iffn I didn't get caught in the oldest trap in the world :)

Yes Alaskajohn I certainly have some stories and memories only those who have lived in the bush can have or ever hope to have.

Chiggertick, we looked at a property 5-6 years ago probably not far from bear valley on the Tok cutoff. Nice place (it needed some TLC) but the misses wanted to be within 2-3 hours from a city with shopping. I always thought the cutoff was a nice defendable area to live in.

Which bag? No way I'm carrying all this stuff, that's why I turned my F150 into a bugout truck.

Welcome from the upper Mojave, the desert has it's own attraction. Going back and forth from Northern Wisconsin to Mojave I totally understand not only the Climate shock but the culture shock as well.

I divided my time between Kenai and bear valley. Summers I spent in Kenai in a place I bought working and prepping for the winter growing a garden, canning and smoking salmon and clams and when the work season was done be it cannery fishing boat set net site or a oil field turn around I would then head for the homestead and spend the next 5-7 months in quiet solitude :) and of course moose hunting and trapping fur along with improving the cabin. Story to be told there now lol!
