We are considering moving to Kodiak within the next month or so. I have a 16 year old and a 3 month old. What is it like there? What is there for a 16 year old to do? How easy is it to meet people?

Hi, We moved to Kodiak last August. We love it! Did you check the Kodiak Daily Mirror for jobs? They have a website: www.kodiakdailymirror.com .

Kodiak is a small town with many friendly people. We have a Wal-Mart, Safeway, a building supply, a hardware store, several outdoor outfitters, limited restraunts. Many times it is difficult if not impossible to get off (or back on) the island due to the weather - snow, sleet, heavy rain, thick fog. It is also very expensive. Housing is high and there is very little selection. Few rentals. Groceries are costlier than the mainland as well. Diesel fuel for our truck is STILL $3.29 a gallon!!! We pay about $500 a month in utilities alone.

With all that said, I have seen the most beautiful scenery, hiked incredible mountains, fished where there was "no water" - the fish were so thick that water was hard to see. The winters are milder than the Alaskan mainland. Summer is incredible.

We do have internet for shopping for clothing and toys, etc.(Expect to pay high shipping from most places.) Cell phones, comprable to CONUS. Internet and satellite tv - cheaper than some CONUS.

Population is mainly white with some Alaskan Natives and a large influx of Filipinos.

Good luck!
