Ice Road Truckers

Anyone here watch this show these guys are some crazy Canucks. I would go insane listening to the ice crack under my truck for 20 plus hours.

I watched one episode. It's a blatant rip off of deadliest catch. Same exact flow and opening credits as Deadliest catch. My wife and I laughed at it a lot.

I do love the Deadliest Catch, those guys earn every penny they make.

Done by the same people?

Who would have thought Deadliest Catch would have caught on?

I drive doubles. I don't have an ocean under me but I do drive on solid ice in terrain that those guys don't have to deal with. Last winter there were times when I actually had 8-10 inches stuck to the truck and mirrors. I was in Columbia , MO. after the BIG ice storm last winter. That time there was 12" of ice on the ground, trees, power lines and towers. There was so much that the high tension towers had crumbled under the weight, freaky. I also spent a lot of time on the big hills in Northern Wisconsin, Minnasota, Wyoming and a ton of other places that were somewhat of a challenge. I watched an episode of that series and I was able to relate to that woman driver that said, "There was sweat pouring off my gearshift hand.". It's nothing to see 5-10 trucks rolled over into ditches in one night. BTW, I do this day and night 6 days or more in a row. Usually 10-14 hour days with 9 -11 hours behind the wheel.

I feel much safer knowing that you are well rested and alert of my little car under your wheel.

Yes, ya might want to keep that in mind before you decide to pass on the right or try to cut in front of a truck to get to an off ramp or maybe not pay attention when merging onto a freeway.

I watch the show and it is interesting, not as good as Deadliest Catch though, maybe if they had Mike Rowe narrating it because he just doesn't do enough already.
