About Me


Hello! I'm Hannah and I am the writer behind The Middle(tons) of Nowhere. I am a twenty-something teacher with a knack for adventure, who lives in Alaska with her husband (Cody) and two dogs (Specks and Luna). 


I began blogging way back in 2010 when I decided to accept a summer job in the Alaskan Bush.  I accepted the job off of CraigsList, much to my families concern, and took off for an incredible summer of working in the commercial fishing industry.  You can read about my journey on my original blog, Naknek Grime: A Summer in Bristol Bay Alaska. 


Two years after my initial journey to Alaska I accepted a teaching job in Juneau.  Luckily, my wonderful husband Cody agreed to follow me on the journey that would take us 3,000+ miles from home.  For the next two years we spent our free time exploring Juneau. This blog began as a way to chronicle all of the adventures we had along the way. 



After a couple of years in Juneau, we decided to tackle a new adventure and headed to an island paradise in northern Lake Michigan called Beaver Island.  We spent the next two years living in a teeny remote village on the island, only accessible by boat or plane.



Now, we are back at it again and heading out to start a new adventure in the Alaskan Bush.  Cody and I will both be working for Lake and Peninsula School District in a tiny village (population ~70) called Pilot Point.

As for next year, who knows where we will end up.  After all, we are the Middleton's of Nowhere and the adventures never stop!

  2. I stumbled upon your blog by accident and am so glad I did. I lived and loved in Alaska for 5 times, each in Fairbanks and once in Anchorage. When things settle down for me some, I intend to immerse myself in your blog. I will send you some recipes and answer some of the questions you have posited.
    You are indeed brave and probably smarter than most of us down in the lower 48! Best of it all, Sandi
    PS: Here's what I am doing right now if you have some time.

  3. What a great story. Ours is very similar - after living in Alaska for 3 years we decided we needed to move back home to Toronto. It was a hard decision but we will always have Alaska.

    1. Alaska is really a magical place! We decided to head back closer to home about two years ago, but this summer we are heading back. The 49th state just gets in your blood :)

    2. Oh wow, amazing! If we weren't both Canadians, and it was easier for us to work there (and it wasn't so far from home - our families would kill us for taking away the new babe) we would be back there in a heart beat!

  4. Love your blog Hannah! I am a teacher and my family and I currently live in China. We plan to be here 2 more years. After that I sincerely hope we relocate to Alaska. Thanks for your blog!
