@Wings - the Alaskan coast is actually a temporate rain forest, so I don't think it'd suit if you're looking for really cold, or dry. Temperatures in the summer are high 60s to low 80s, winter temperatures are 20-30s. However, interior Alaska might suit you - Fairbanks gets to -60 regularly in the winter, although it is quite warm (80s and 90s) in the summer. Anchorage is cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than Fairbanks. The Denali area is about perfect, if you ask me.

I am actually seriously thinking about moving to Alaska now...thanks ccoa :) However I checked weather.com and looked at the averages for the months, it the hottest it has gotten in Fairbanks so far this year was 79. The humidity really kills it though.

Plus there is a house I'm looking at up there in the N. Fairbanks area. ;)

Just be aware that there is only 4 hours of daylight midwinter, and 4 hours of darkness midsummer. Summer is wonderful, with long days, midnight activities, and Denali with its hiking and camping, and Kenai with its fishing, rock climbing, and boating. Plus, you can hardly turn around without seeing wildlife everywhere. But winter is a recipe for SAD - bring a happy light. :P

Depending on how far north you go, there may be no daylight/night at all. In Dawson City (yukon) there are two weeks at either end where the sun never sets/rises. It is eery coming outside at 2 am and having no way of knowing it isn't noon.

Welcome back chief!

I'll be seeing you, in all the old familiar places

All day through
