I have always admired the simple life in Alaska, from what I've seen.
Hard life but private.
Anyone feel the same?
Can we leave our troubles behind by going to live in a cabin?
I would try it for 6 months.
I think.
SPEAK UP. SILENCE IS DEADLY!

I am currently experiencing life at several WTFs per hour.

Too many East African "refugees" for me. In 1986 I loved Norway, now, too much Diversity.

Most of the "refugees", or more accurately asylum–seekers, in northern Norway are from Somalia or from Kurdish area in Iraq.
Whether or not there re too many is a matter of opinion. Many applications for asylum are rejected. I know personally many such people, there situation is unbelievably dreadful. Troms and Finnmark are wonderful counties and that fact is not altered by opinions about diversity. Finnmark is bigger tan Denmark and has always had a very diverse population. A lot of communists though which would probably be a difficult for any North American 'refugees'. Best go to Alaska.

Really? Bears, wolves, etc, keep loaded weapons and you're OK. I would seriously love to explore that kind of life.
I suppose I'd have to rough it, but its appealing to me.
I can almost smell the wood burning. Lol

Re: I'd love to live by Arctic circle. would life there be private and different? ALASKA
I lived in the high arctic for four years. I loved the place but I hated the job. The thing I noticed about the type of folks it attracts is that they are people who would be considered a little odd in the south. They're all fairly "a" type personalities, adventurous and loners. Most are highly educated. They love to read.

The high arctic is a little different from Alaska. There are no trees. There is four solid months of darkness and four solid months of daylight. Curiously, the daylight months drove me crazy.

Everything costs four times as much as down south. There's very little food to scavage from the land, but if you're into hunting and fishing, you're golden. The Inuit are an odd lot, but I loved them. They have a four hundred syllable word that means "people who are not the People", meaning aliens. Quite the adventure on the whole....

I then moved to the western arctic which is a lot like Alaska except not many mountains. Stayed there for three years. As I am Native, I just had the best best time. Still hated my job though....

You live seasons there. Lots of land food and hunting to keep you going. Wood to burn!!! and cut, huge work there.

Folks that come from away are still adventurous, but not in the extreme as in the high arctic. There is not the sense of extreme isolation as in the high arctic. There are roads so buying an automobile is worth it, as well as snowmobiles and four wheelers.

In both spots, there is a terrific sense of being close to the original ways and just the thinest veneer of "civilisation".

I treasure my time up north.

Cheers! Raven
Great Spirit, make me ready, for that last sunset, and my Spirit will come to you without shame.

How wonderful it all sounds!

I know there's an awful lot of work to it, but living this way would be a dream come true.

Cabin life sux. Boring and isolated. Been there, done that.
I love my life in Fairbanks, AK. Excellent (if funky) small city
with lots going on and a very nice climate if you like extremes.

^^^^^ When the need for civilisation would kick in, I'd make a day trip to Yellowknife. From your description, Fairbanks sounds like it is very much like Yellowknife.

Lots of funky shops - galleries, book shops, restaurants (((oooo just the best Italian family restaurant, just the best sigh), theatres, taverns and such. Funky is just the word too. Not a typical city, at all.

Cheers!
