New guy here from Alaska. I spend 8 months of the year at sea and the other 4 at my cabin. 13 miles as the crow flies from the nearest town, 24 miles by snow machine or foot. I usually helicopter in and out. My cabin has solar, wind and generator. Water catchment system which works great when the cisterns aren't frozen solid. Snow is plentiful most of the year so that's how I get most of my water. Propane stove and refrigerator. Oil drip heater in the cabin and a wood stove in the sauna/shower. Cabin also has a nice detached workshop and detached ATV shed. Outhouse. The cabin foundation is a huge outcropping of rock which the cabin is anchored to with cable. Outstanding views of Mt. Denali and the Talkeetna Mountains. Access and bears are my only major problems besides not being able to spend all my time there.
