    Default What different method of transportation would you choose?

    Taking a break from working on bears.... since I can seal them I get to ask the question 'how did you get to where you started walking?' I know most folks in Alaska have some means of getting themselves into hunting country. River boat, ATV, plane, snow machine, etc...Even hwy vehicle is a good choice!

    But if you could change or add another means of transportation besides what you already have, what would you choose?
    I think if I could, I would choose river boat - with a jet outboard...or maybe snow machine (except I am no fan of cold weather, thank you Tok LOL)

    About the only two things I don't have yet is an airplane but that's next on my list. And of my 5 boats I need to get an outboard jet for one of them. I'd love to get a 25hp with a jet on it that would be perfect for my duck boat

    I would really like to get set up with a palanquin and some porters.

    I'm with Brian on this one...but if I had give an answer, I would say river boat since that's something I don't have.

    Fat-tire tricycle. Something like this, but with 2" wide tires. http://assets.inhabitat.com/wp-conte...argo-trike.jpg

    I'm serious. I've hauled meat out on a bike before, and it sucks. Too tippy.

    Also, Larry's pack raft.

    The older I get, the more I think, given plenty of money, I would have a good, well-manner, gentle, tall saddle mule. With a smaller pack mule trailing behind. Of course that is after a Cub on floats and a suped up 175 or 172 converted to tail-dragger, ooh, and the Hewescraft Searunner. I'm already working on the skinny water jet boat.
