What I've learned about Fairbanks in 9 months

Tips for living here as a military wife:

  • Wear gloves when getting gas.
  • Don't follow too close to the car in front of you, rocks fly and hit your windshield.
  • You can get anywhere in less than 10 minutes.
  • Live on post. Houses and utilities cost a fortune out here! Plus, the housing is awesome.
  • Shovel your driveway every time it snows.
  • Find a good church.
  • Be involved.
  • Have a good camera and learn how to use it.
  • Sign up for text alerts from the Aurora (Northern Lights) forecast. They'll text you when it's out.
  • Get a membership at Sams Club.
  • Sign up for Rewards at stores that offer it. It's free.
  • Get out and do stuff.
  • 15 above zero is no jacket weather. LOL
  • Visit Chena Hot Springs, get fully prepared.
  • Get good snow tires.
  • Get auto start.
I'm sure there's so much more that I haven't thought of, soooo... maybe I'll add some later.
