As my wife and I weighed all the pros and cons of a move 3900 miles away we had a nagging worry: How on earth were we going to sort, pack and ship, all our stuff? Even after selling our snowmachines, four-wheelers, furniture, and tons of other things we still have 5,000 pounds of household belongings to ship. And its not cheap when your only shipping option is air freight (there are no connecting roads from Western Alaska to Anchorage). This ordeal has got me thinking about living a less cluttered lifestyle, owning less stuff. A recent Time magazine article analyzes living such a lifestyle...... How to Live With Just 100 Things - TIME So what do you think? Can less be better? And as a side note, my 5,000 pounds of household belongings arrived in Anchorage three days ago. However, I'm still waiting on my truck to be air freighted. So I'm living in a house, where the telephone has been turned off, no television (its in Anchorage), cells don't work in the area where my house is, no computer or internet (my computer is in Anchorage), and I have no transportation (my truck is in the possession of the air freight company). I hitch rides from my residence to town and return to my residence the same way. In the interim I hope an air cargo company will send a large enough plane that will accomendate my truck (a Tacoma King Cab 4 X 4). This has been my routine for the last few days.
