I honesty am really disappointed in this video. I’ve lived here my whole life and I haven’t had a single problem with it other than mosquitoes and the temperatures. It’s doesn’t get as cold as he says. And so what is we have “ the worst fashion sense in the country “ like we are just trying to stay warm so we don’t get frostbite. I love it here because you know everyone and everyone is super nice. If you’re thinking about moving to Alaska then we welcome you and hope you have a great time on the hikes trails fishing hunting and picking wild berries. Back to the fashion, we don’t have the worst fashion, I mean, have you seen L.A ?

Some of the mosquitoes in Alaska get so big, one of them landed at an Army airfield and the ground crew went out to put gas in it thinking it was a scout helicopter.

Most of these points he’s making are about northern and central Alaska. In Anchorage the weather is fair, and the cost of living is affordable. I moved back to Anchorage from Oregon and the cost of things weren’t that much different in comparison. When you live out in one of the villages that are only accessible by plane that’s when you find things are extremely expensive.

This is fun to watch, but most of the 400, 000 residents of metro Anchorage-Matsu would laugh at this. Most of these criticisms are either childish, funny, distorted, or simplistic hyperbole. Here are a few facts:

1. The populated areas of Alaska (like South Central) have all of the infrastructure that you have in Seattle, Portland, Spokane, etc. This includes highways, expressways, broadband, malls, colleges, rail service, and every form of retail and service.

2. The Midnight Sun in the summer is no hindrance. Close the drapes and go to sleep. No issue. Most folks like it.

3. Thirty percent of Alaska has milder winters than Minnesota, both Dakotas, Montana, Wisco, Wyoming, etc.

4. Yes, the cost of living is higher, but so are the wages.

5. Bears on your property? If you live in South Central in an urban neighborhood, that would be very rare. Maybe an occasional leave him/her alone. No issue.

The rest of this is not worth a comment.

7. Allot of the points are true but most are not in the extreme the video makes it sound. At least not in the developed parts of Alaska. Road kill is an exception though. Moose act suicidal. Think of Alaska's bears like Florida's aligators. You hear all about them but when you visit the place you usually only see them if you go out of your way to find them.
6. Yep. Alaskans are armed to the teeth. All the rumors you've heard about Alaska's lax gun laws are probably true as advertised.
5. True as advertised.
4. There is some truth to this but not anywhere near as bad as it sounds. At least in the matsu valley and kenai peninsula. Men like to wear cargo pants allot and women like to wear leggings in the summer time. I haven't quite wrapped my head around shirt trends. Winter dress is like any place where it snows. Overall Alaskan fashion is a mixed bag.
2. Due to Alaska's lax rules and regulations, Alaska's cost of living can be all over the board. If you wanna live the high life, get ready to shovel out some serious cash. But if you are careful with your finances and invest in things that reduce your monthly costs (solar, buying land, building your home etc.) costs can be ridiculously low. I can probably live on $300 in a month if i want to. Here are some videos from my Alaska channel showing actual prices here including milk.
1. This point is mostly true but; as pointed out, not all that bad. The vast majority of the population lives in the matsu valley and kenai peninsula. Fairbanks and the Juneau area are the only other real population centers. There's not much reason to travel throughout the rest of the state unless your job takes you there. Life is pretty normal and mundane in Alaska's population center. Alaska's rape rate is mostly in remote native villages. In the developed parts of the state, women; including the young and pretty, pack heat. The rest is obvious.

Overall, good video. More accurate than most of the stuff i see.

This is all crap im going to say some good things:
1. The mountains are beautiful
2. You get paid to live here
3. Yeah sure its cold, when your hot you can only take off so many layers in the cold you can add as much as you need
4. At least you can see the mosquitos here and there not invisible
5. The sports♥️ (skiing, snowboarding) a lot of states cant do that
6. Direct flights to Hawaii
7. Studded tires are a thing
8. We are bigger and better than Texas
9. Salmon
Alaska’s great dont hate!

The statistic you presented at the end is skewed by the ungodly high numbers of those occurrences in Native villages.
