That was an exciting fall on the 40 Mile Ridges. It quickly became a test for tents. Not cold but the wind was clocked at >100 at a nearby airport. When we did get a switch in wind direction, we couldn't fight the wind to Tok so we landed on the Alcan Highway. There's a few locations along the Alcan where you can see that the trees were all flattened as williwaws broke over the range.John, is your friend a traditional longbow hunter also? My buddy Mike and I ran into you and your hunt partner back in 2014 I believe, on an intermediate ridge that 40 Mile uses to stage hunters to their hunting spots. You were kind enough to recall a little of the 2012 adventure for us, I wanted my buddy to hear firsthand what the weather can do up there.
