Storyline

During the harsh winter of Canada's Northwest Territory, remote villages and work camps are cut off from the world. To keep them supplied, a tenacious group of long-haul truckers drive their rigs over hundreds of miles on ice roads cut across the surface of frozen lakes. Sometimes the ice cannot support the heavy rig, and driver and cargo plunge through the ice and sink to the bottom. Hitch a risky ride along with the Ice Road Truckers as they drive headlong into bone-chilling danger. Written by History Channel

strange
17 January 2009 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I am from Norway and don't think the temperature is so extreme , if i calculate it right -32F is just at water freezing, and they show it as terrible at -42. Also i think the trucks are so different than we are using, many things looks like its been around since the early 80's. Who in his right mind uses steel-wire to load and unload the trailer on the rig. That's my opinion,you're technique and solutions are strange for me. And to use alcohol on air tanks was a system we used 20-30 years ago, now its just air drying system, so many different ways to the job. So I think its a good series but some of the characters are a little over the top for me,they are a little full of themselves :)
