cogdaniel (researched this town Within the last 5 years and is considering moving here):
"I am brain disabled.On Social Security - ok money wise, I would be looking for affordable housing - does not need to be subsidized. Just affordable. Am 61, tired of the busy cities, love cold weather, like peace and quiet - willing to live in Fairbanks!"
I am tired of the big city - Boston rat race. Turned 61. Love the cold weather. Only concern is transportation - am brain disabled - but able to get around very well. Need to be near a general hospital - looking for peace and quiet - need to be within walking distance of stores - supermarkets ect. On social security - so low rent in proportion to income is an important factor. I do ok on social security as my only source of income. New friends would be a prime factor in my life, as I am alone with no family - I chose Fairbanks because of its distance away from large metro areas.
How can I answer the questions below, if I have never been or lived there?
