    I never had a heater on my vehicles while stationed there. They are nice, but not required. There is an awesome auto hobby shop there for personal use. Once you arrive, you will meet a lot of people that can help you install it. Living in Kodiak, you become self sufficient very quickly!

    Congrats on the assignment!! I am jealous.

    We had an engine heater when we lived in Valdez. But the only reason we had it was because we bought the car in Anchorage and it just came with. We never had one in all the years we were in Kodiak. I used it a few times in Valdez, I'm not sure we had to. We did use it when we went to Faribanks a few times during the winter. If it wasn't in the car, we never would have missed not having it. So I wouldn't worry about it.

    I'm with Chukles on this one... So jealous! I would love to go "home" again. Kodiak was some of my poorest but some of my best years as a Coastie wife!

    You'll get to tell all those at home what a great time you are having in Kodiak and something they'll probably never see!

    One thing... It might be a little difficult when you first get there. I moved there in December myself. When you get there it is going to be cold, dark, if it isn't snowing it will be raining. That might be pretty tough to get used to at first. But honest, spring will roll around and it will be the most gorgeous place you have ever seen. Then if you are still there next winter, it won't seem nearly as bad. So if it does seem like it sucks when you first get there, don't give up on Kodiak. It really is a great place. Have a lot of fun!!!

    It's called the emerald isle for a reason. Come spring you will learn what sunshine liberty is! When the sun breaks, people vacate their abodes and hit the wilderness.

    PM me, I'm here and I'll help you out. You definitely don't need an engine block heater (I have yet to see one here, did see them in Anchorage though). I can't wait for spring and summer. I got here in September and missed the best time of the year. But even in winter I absolutely fell in love. You'll enjoy it.
    Honor: if you need it defined, you don’t have it.
