In a series of videos, she revealed how she has to travel five hours to get to her nearest supermarket — meaning she only makes the trip once every five to eight weeks.

In one video, she says she spent 400 Canadian dollars (314 USD, £235) on one grocery, but that she can easily spend 1000 Canadian dollars in one store.
The five-hour journey is nearly a full day of daylight in the winter months — and many sections of the road can only go as low as 30 miles per hour.
“We have a good supply of canned and frozen food, so we didn’t need too much this time,” she explains.
“We don’t get a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables, otherwise we have to eat them quickly or prepare them for freezing.”
She went on to say that the prices are comparable to much of Canada – but her groceries are made expensive by the five hours we drive and have to get a hotel room.
“It’s like a mini-vacation,” she added.
She went on to tell them to split the trip over two days to avoid a “whiteout”

“Visibility is limited even in bright conditions. Animals can run onto the road or you can break down. You may not see a car and have no cell service. I have to drive around 30 miles per hour in some areas,” she added.
“So no, the hotel room is not a waste of money.”
In the clips, she also explained how there is a small supermarket in town where you can get snacks and all sorts of things like bread, peanut butter, milk, but added that you pay a premium for this.
She also reveals how the long nights in winter are “not good for her mood” due to lack of sunlight, but that she has a SAD lamp.
Hundreds of her followers have also asked about her lifestyle – where she has revealed that her city has a police force – the Royal Canadian Mounted Police – often known as Mounties.
In one clip she tells how she has no home address and that mail arrives at the main post office once every three days.
From there she goes to pick up her mail from a locker.
“We don’t have a home address, we’re all just 1202 highway in Alaska,” she continued.
