HF Mobile in the far north and to the Arctic Ocean.
I have been HF mobile on the Alcan many times including one winter trip. Alcan Hwy in 1966 was almost 1000 miles of rough dirt road and infrequent fuel availability. It was wonderfully remote. I've been HF mobile on the Yukon/Northwest Territory Dempster Hwy 454 miles of dirt road to the arctic VE8-Inuvik (along the way was /VY1 and /VE8). Also HF mobile the 300+ miles dirt 'Dalton' Trans-Alaska Oil Pipeline Road to Arctic Ocean at Prudhoe Bay, Alaska.
HF rig was occasionally taken when dropped off in remote wilderness by bush pilot for big game hunting or wilderness fishing. Below are a few HF mobile/remote trips, I frequently used a 20/40 meter alligator clamp jumpered dipole when remote tenting.
Contesting interest is limited and the frequent geomagnetic realities (and aurora) of Alaska's location so close to the magnetic north pole with the burden of high-latitude effects on radio propagation.
Some years I was active low power category in ARRL CW Sweepstakes weekend trying for a 'Sweep'.
