A couple weeks ago we made the transition from our travel trailer into a house for the winter time. We searched on craigslist for a cabin to rent for the winter months but were not having any luck as they were way out of our budget we had set. So, we put out an in search of post on there and within a week found an awesome family that has allowed us to housesit there home while they travel for the winter time down to Arizona.
We have finally moved in and are making ourselves at home here in Ninilchik, Alaska, the oldest settlement on the Kenai Peninsula. Ninilchik is halfway between Homer, Ak and Soldotna, Ak which is about 35-40 minutes either way. Which is a big change from where we were in Denali (4 hours from Anchorage and 2 hours from Fairbanks) a lot closer drive for things to do and grocery shopping.
Its a fairly small town with about 800-900 year round people, but has tons of history and character! And our favorite part, tons of atv and snowmobile trails right in our backyard! Needless to say I think we will have plenty to keep us occupied for the winter time.
