What is the most remote place on land that you have ever been in terms of accessibility and distance to other humans.
Interesting to hear some of your responses.

For me it is Northern British Columbia. Supposedly we were in the Northwest territory for a short period of time. Would like to go back there some day. When you get in a float plane and travel three hours without seeing a road or any sign of Man it makes you feel small. I have been to ten countries in Africa and never felt all that alone. I have never been to the Congo and would like to hear what some of you say about traveling that part of Africa.

Great question!

For me. The mountains of Kyrgyzstan while hunting sheep and ibex. Nearest town was 5 hours by truck. I have never felt more remote or tiny in the world.

I am going to test a new remote spot while hunting in Mongolia this fall. Smiler

Absolute most remote place would be middle of the Atlantic while in the Navy.

Most remote place I've spent any real time in would be brown bear hunting camp on Kamchatka Peninsula Russia.

B.C. 99k to the mail box.

Artic circle Quebec.

Even though I was in hunting camps for both. Outside of the people in camp. Very remote.


I have walked in the foot prints of the elephant, listened to lion roar and met the buffalo on his turf. I shall never be the same.

Capt.

I agree with Todd. When you're at sea and you can't see anything but blue water for 360 degrees all the way to the horizon you are remote. As for a remote feeling hunt I think our first fly out hunt in Alaska in '85 felt very remote but exciting and comforting all at the same time. The complete lack of any trace of other people is a special experience.

While hunting? ANWR here in Alaska. Outside of Alaska? The Naryn River Valley of Kyrgyzstan or the Selous in Tanzania.

Rhyme of the Sheep Hunter
May fordings never be too deep, And alders not too thick; May rock slides never be too steep And ridges not too slick.
And may your bullets shoot as swell As Fred Bear's arrow's flew; And may your nose work just as well As Jack O'Connor's too.
May winds be never at your tail When stalking down the steep; May bears be never on your trail When packing out your sheep.
May the hundred pounds upon you Not make you break or trip; And may the plane in which you flew Await you at the strip.
-Seth Peterson

My friend has a float plane . He has an outfitting business in Quebec. We have explored northern Quebec, and areas off the coast of Labrador ..
I've caught char and shot caribou off the pontoon floats ....

This is some of the most remote country I've seen and often compare it to parts of Alaska

Totally agree. Makes anywhere in Africa seem like civilization. I noticed you don't even see planes flying overhead; can't say that about Alaska or Africa.

Saeed, this reminds me of something. Some years ago, In Jordan, MT there was a standoff for quite a while with a group known as the "Freemen." Now Jordan, MT is in the middle of nowhere. I was driving through. Somewhere along the way, I saw a tee shirt. The had the following on the tee shirt:

End of the earth- 10 miles

Jordan, MT- 15 miles

I thought it was hysterical.

On land: Djibouti about 80 miles from town to go to the beach. Came across some locals that lived in a little village. We gave them all our junk food, water, they even took our trash.

They were living in mud huts, and child survivalbility was probably in the 8-10% to adulthood. Really skinny frail looking little people.

I have been places in Outback Australia that were 1000% more remote, but these folksw ere in bad shape.

Salt River, Alaska. Kind of remote, but easily reachable with float plane in decent weather. When I was there it wasn't so nice and the outfitter brought us out in an H-18 on floats instead of the Beaver that took us in. Nice ride...

I was deployed on the USS Enterprise, USS Nimitz and USS Carl Vinson made a total of 3 cruises in my 20 years in the Navy.

Middle of the Atlantic, middle of the Indian Ocean, or the Middle of the Pacific. You are way out in the middle of nowhere.

Another remote place I have been that not a lot of people get to is the British Indian Ocean Territory of Diego Garcia.

Detroit!

I was home on leave from the Navy to the folks house in Casper, and flying back to Europe. For some reason I had a layover in Detroit, followed by a layover in Minneapolis, then a flight to London, and then finally on to Madrid and then to Jerez. It was rough.

Of course Christmas time, and snow and all that and I landed in Detroit to find out that they had over booked my flight.

Lufthansa had a deal worked out and they gave me the option of overnighting in Detroit or flying to the Miniapple and staying there.

Took me about .0001 miliseconds to make that decision.

We drove through Detroit about 10 years returning from our honeymoon and got told by a gas station attendant that we needed to hurry up and get on to the other side of town.

I’ve been in a few remote places in Africa, but truly remote had to be in a high berry field hunting bear in Alaska.

In Africa there were usually some people within a day’s trip.

In the middle of the Togiak refuge, nothing... and when the wind blew, no plane could get you out.

It is hard to say.

Yes, Alaska has remote places. However, I vividly remember noting that I saw far fewer planes in the North West Territories. I tend to think it was far more remote.

I hunted the Qinghai province of China in the late 90's. I told someone that I believed it was far more remote than anywhere I had been in Africa.

A few places come to mind, including one in Africa...

We were hunting in far southwestern Botswana, probably 50-75 miles east of Namibia. Nobody else around at all for a solid week and I don’t recall any jetliners. The only plane I remember seeing was the one that dropped us off, then picked us up 8 days later. No roads, we just made our own trails through the sandy ridges. Our only contact with the outside world was a shortwave radio.

Alaska, out on the Alaska Peninsula, southwest of Port Heiden. Extremely wild country that we saw a huge amount of from a super cub. Flew inside the rim of Mt. Veniaminof, an old volcano. It looked like the moon. I remember thinking, when flying back from Port Heiden to King Salmon in a Cessna 206, that the land before me probably looked the same since right after the ice age, there was nothing but wilderness and no sign of man. Lots of Brown Bears and some damn big moose out there, tough country to hunt.

The other place was in the Alaska Range, up near the foot of the Yanert Glacier, the source of the Yanert River. Spectacular, rugged country about 70 horseback miles east of Denali Station, never saw another person but lots of game - grizzlies, sheep, moose, caribou. That hunt, nearly 20 days on horseback, remains one of the greatest adventures I’ve ever enjoyed. Shot a ram the first day and a grizzly the last day. Had a bad horse wreck on our way out, my guide barely escaped tragic injuries. He was badly bruised but fortunately, no broken bones. And then Lynn Castle damn near killed us in his airplane on the ride back to his main lodge.

185 miles north of Yellowknife in the NWT on a Caribou hunt. Saw no signs of human habitation, no air traffic, no sound but the wind. Saw thousands of Caribou, a Griz, and a wolverine, a few eagles, and thousands of caribou. The fish on that stretch of the Coppermine River acted like they had never seen a lure.

The most remote hunting was on a self guided moose hunt in Alaska. The most remote was in the Rub’ al Khali in Saudi Arabia.
