I definitely pay if it meant I'd be living in Alaska!
If you move up here to join all of us nuts who cling to religion and guns, whatever else you might decide to do, don't choose Fairbanks.
Fairbanks winters are almost as cold as Minneapolis / Saint Paul winters are (lived in The Twin Cities 3 years and couldn't resist a wisecrack at same).
Rather settle in Anchorage or, way down in our "banana belt", which includes Sitka, Juneau, Ketchikan, etc.
You surely would be welcome here if I had anything to say about it.
