  1. That's an exciting move. Our home is water access only. Fortunately we bought our cabin already furnished, but getting a new fridge, stove and sofa up the lake by boat were a challenge. - Margy

  2. If the cannery on Adak gets going again, there will be regular barge traffic--otherwise it depends upon government and university workers doing cleanup or research. Luckily there is left behind furnishings from the Navy sold by the Aleut Corporation--beds, furniture, appliances. So we only need to bring food, cookware, clothing bedding and personal effects. However, simplifying one's life is vital. USPS shipping is exorbitant and the mail only flies in twice a week.
