in all seriousness, Alaska is great, but anchorage and the “valley”, (which consists of Palmer and Wasilla) are not garden spots. But these places are a microcosm of the Alaskan motif of “you are responsible for your own safety”. Which is a bit cliche, but very true in Alaska.

If you are the kind of person who doesn’t make eye contact with the occasional tweaker in your suburban shelter, Alaska is not the place for you. But if you stare them down with little fear and refuse to be a victim of any sort, then you might just get along well here. my kid and wife are very aware of their surroundings and are well prepared, if you get the drift. Once you can learn not to be afraid, Alaska is one of the best places on the planet. You and your family will learn more about yourselves than you thought possible. The environment itself is very serious, not just the crime or people. Alaska is not for sissies.
