    Nice article. I'm glad I am on the road system and can drive into Fairbanks every couple of weeks to get food. One thing to notice is she was able to call home on a telephone .....that's what I've done for the last few decades is to povide telephone service to villages and the bush in Alaska.

    My first reaction to this was, "It's nice that she can just go shopping as needed." My location (in the Alaska bush) does not have that option. As to the cost, I pay normal city prices, but must charter a plane to bring everything to the homestead - add about 30 cents a pound to the price of the groceries in winter and about 50 cents a pound in summer (float planes cost more).

    Welcome to reality.
