Well, we've got the Alaska Airplanes thread, so I figured this could be interesting as well. I'll start, here are a couple from the other day - all parked for the season, waiting for the snow to return:

My Alaskan vehicle is a rust bucket 1981 Ford F-150 4x4. I only drive if to Chitina (dipnetting), and in September's moose season.

Well in addition to the normal modes of ground bound transportation like the car and truck, this is my "Imp" that I sadly just sold after a bunch of years of use.... It was made by Thiokol back in the seventies and I used it to haul freight and building materials out to my cabin which is about 40 miles out in the Wilderness, just North of Mt. McKinley Park... The area is best known for the guy that went out "Into the Wild" and died in a old bus. That was a few miles South of my cabin.

The Track rig was very nice at -30 and colder with a heated cab, it wasn't as fast as the snowmachine, but much warmer... It cruised along at about ten miles an hour without beating you to a pulp, top speed was twenty five MPH..

Getting ready to haul building supplies out to the property


Stopping on the trail (Known as a "Winter Road")


At the cabin getting ready to head to town for the last trip of the winter towing the snowmachine on the sled.
