Google Street View captured another street view car in Chicken, Alaska:
https://www.google.com/maps/place/64%C2%B004'15.0%22N+141%C2%B052'30.0%22W/@64.0729452,-141.9336536,3a,19y,207.13h,83.67t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1s1pC0TxmAA9t_v1hkO5_Khg!2e0?hl=en

I'd think it would be a lot closer to crazy if they were driving StreetView in remote Alaska without having a partner vehicle.

I've seen multiple cars, usually in the north. It's probably due to lack of roads to cover, so multiple cars travel on the only highway to the next community.

On many Alaska roads, you'd be stupid to go alone, especially in a car like that. This way, if one breaks down, they can get to a settlement. You'll also see a Google caravan on the Dalton Highway imagery.

Exactly; so, definitely not a crazy thing found in Street View. :-)

I'm guessing hops or something.

Street view, on water!
https://www.google.com/maps/@42.5659631,-73.7522737,3a,66.8y,0.28h,77.97t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sipumYq9EpkG9JLYIYB0tZA!2e0

So the Port Authority (likely) raised a stink about GSV getting shots on the the GWB but now there's high-definition pics of the underside of it... (plus some pics of the most famous nuclear plant built over an undetected fault line)
