I'm up for touring Alaska. Couldn't live there (no IT industry), but would love to come hunt and trek up there.
If I want cold though, me and my wife will move back to her homeland.
I guess ‘cold’ is a personal definition, we go sunbathing at 60F...
As far as IT jobs, I know of several folks who telecommute from the L48 to “work” here. No big business tho.
Come on up and enjoy, in the winter the skiing is super and with very few tourists.
