They recently bought a small 8 acre homestead in south central Alaska (both are from that region, so it's more just going home). They are currently living in a 300 square foot cabin with five kids, three dogs and a couple of cats. (The dogs are needed because they are finding bear sign next to the house often. They make sure the dogs are out for several minutes before they let kids out to make sure they run any nearby large fuzzies off. I've told them they need to leave the dogs out at night, but they haven't gone there.
