Ice Road Staking?

3 posts in this topic

How are the roads staked originally? Is GPS used to keep the road fairly straight? I'm wondering for the sake of getting some waypoints of access starts and finishes of the main roads to decide which access I want to go out of. I wouldn't think this would be possible during a year with many ridges but it sounds like there are some straight roads up there this year? Does any of this make any sense? confused.gif It would be a first for me. Thanks for any info guys.

Hillmans road heads due west 8.3 miles as it has for many decades. The Hillmans are born with a GPS in their brain that sends them in a perfectly straight line west once they hit the ice. To give you an idea imagine an airstrip leaving N 48*10'01.57 W 94*30'55.74 and heading 8 miles due west.
