For the average person, my experience today is not worthy of a "conversation". But, even tho I have plenty of appetite for moto-ing, my personal default setting is human propelled.
When I moved up to Alaska from Utah, I had these romantic notions of backcountry skiing and backpacking. All it took was one time at Hatcher Pass and I realized this was not really fun and certainly beyond my skill set.
My eventual social group were all long time Alaskans who hunt and fish (I do neither) and on a couple of occasions they invited me out to go out snowmachining with them on one of their extra sleds.
Not much of a learning curve with the throttle but certainly plenty of learning curve negotiating deep snow. Anyway, it took me 4 years living up there before I finally bought a snowmachine and really regretted not buying one sooner. If you don't own a bush plane, having a snowmachine in Alaska gives you the greatest access around the state which is what I am always seeking.
