So I posted this in the wrong spot before...lets try again......



Hi friends!! So I was wondering if there are any veg*n people in Alaska on this site?? I have been planning to move there for a while, and always noticed on lots of packages and commercials not available in Alaska and hawaii. So my question is..... what to veg*ns eat in alaska????? Are there really any other choices than growing and canning your own food? What about winter?? I am very curious and appreciate ANY feedback....thanks



~Peace~

I was before I moved far away (well, not so far but i ****ing hated alaska). I ate... pretty much what i eat now. Everything is available there as is down everywhere else unless you're in the Bush. What area are you talking about? I lived in North Pole, Fairbanks, Wasilla, Palmer, and Anchorage.

Seriously, as someone who lived there for five years, WHY?

The people, the weather, the scenery isn't pretty at all the trees are all bottle scrubber ugly trees, or plain birch trees, the animals are cool, don't get me wrong, but it was teh worst five years of my life. Its awful up there. The people are insane, at least by my standards. Depending on where you go, the climate can be insane (you just said a small town, not really the location), but if it's in the interior, get ready for -45 to -60 below in the winter, and 100 degrees in the summer. If it's coastal, get ready for feet and feet and feet of snow in the winter and rain all summer.

Really, the only nice thing were the animals, and then you get to watch moose ride by in the back of someone's truck. Seeing as the second favorite (no, first favorite) activity up there right with snow machining is hunting. Hunting and fishing really.
