Isn't that the strong point of HF APRS?
A number of years ago, I traveled cross-country from the Pacific 
Northwest to upstate New York.
Wanting my family to keep apprised of my progress both to and back, I 
ran 30 Meter HF APRS.
Back in those days, (and somewhat still now) there were numerous 'black 
holes' across the northern tier of states.
My HF transmissions worked well getting into HF Gateways.
