@Reeda1414 the show "ice road trucker" depicted the drivers in a bad light. diavik threw them out after the first season because of their attitude and mouths. guys who go on and on like billy bigriggers like that make all the drivers look like fools. those guys werent following speed limits on the ice which could cause the guy behingd to break thru due to the wave they create causing the ice to break at the shore. i have made a few trips, but have a lot of friends who do it every year.

That is truly amazing. Thank you for your sincere response and for not trolling like you get so much of these days. I'm gonna go read up more about these brave souls that do those remote communities a great service. :)

@SuperHyperOverdrive yeah I've spent most of my career up in the arctic driving on ice roads. It is a dangerous job but its not that dagerous. As for the ice the rules we go by when building an ice road are 36" of ice will hold hold a ton and for every inch after that another ton is added to its capacity so a road capable of holding 63,500 kilograms is 63.5 inches or more thick .

Wow, that's pretty amazing. I was unaware of these ice drivers.

I have a lot respect for these guys, not many people would even think about working in those conditions! I worked a whole winter loading 60 foot long conveyor belts for mines on trucks, not up north, though, but I still had some -40 weather and a lot of wind. Working in the cold is a hell of a lots harder since you gotta keep warm so you work your ass off like a maniac! Respect to all the truckers and mine workers of the Great White North!!!

"I drive a truck on ice, i'm courageous and dangerous" ........alright. In reality like the "top comment" is saying, they made this show out to be a LOT more dangerous than it seems. Yes obviously there is a danger to driving a truck over ice, but nearly every episode was the same thing "omg Omg OMG...oh nothing happened but it COULD HAVE HAPPENED!" psh.

I would never drive a big truck like these in the canadian coastal regions, It gets humid here and the snow gets slushy and slippery and it could be extremely dangerous in a big truck.
Report spam or abuse
This is really quite something. I think it would be cool to go on a few of these trips, if I was the passenger in a truck, but not the driver haha. Until that happens though I think I like my little sheltered life here in southern Ontario. Keep all those truckers up there safe though! :) I know I wouldn't have the courage to make those trips myself way up north.

I`m totally proud to be one of those drivers to experience the demster 30 yrs after my Uncle broke trail with the masses of men to conquer the north --- Montreal to Inuvik for supplies for the township every trip N.I.C. GREAT EXPERIENCE no phone booths on this trail for 5 hrs Eagle plains --.

Well.. Ok, these are extreme conditions for you. But.. This is our life in Finland :) I have always wonder why you drive so big and heavy trucks? We have the most powerfull trucks in the world and tonnage per consumption/mil. If i had a Scania youl be in trouble :D Still, nice to see you trying your best, thumbs up for that

I agree with SuperHyperOverdrive, but I still think you need a little bit of guts to do it. I'm not sure I would (Deppends on the pay :D)

@getachefupya It's not worth it. The communitys that these roads serve are very remote, even with the mining operations up there it wouldn't be economically viable. In summer these places have no road access and everything is shipped in by boat or air. In the winter the ice on rivers and lakes can support a semi rig and the "hops" between the frozen waters is firm enough to make a temporary road (in summer the land is boggy) there's plenty of these in finland and Theres a famous one in Estonia.

@SuperHyperOverdrive Even so, 27 inches should be enough to support a semi shouldn't it? agreed on the comment though,

@tampabayismyhome Yeah,that was my point exactly you stupid moron. The reason i had to write this is cause i was reading some of the comments and some of the people on here were saying that there is no reason why we have so many trucks on the roads, that products should be shipped by rail, ship & air. Anyway, hats off to all truckers, keep up the good work :) and those of us who aren't idiots appreciate the hard work

?courage? or just bad ass, balls tough men and in need of cash ? i wonder why they don't have a roof escape hatch on the tractor . if they wore a mustang suit they might have a little better chance if the rig blows through the ice.

Driving heavy on frozen water! mmm. Awesome guts guys and girls. It's something not thought about here in Australia. We are at the other end of the scale with road trains in desert dust storms. Love your work. Cheers.

@biggrigger332 actually its from all the seasons of the show except the himilayans one, due to the fact the young guy who hauls alot of the oversized cargo is only in the one where they haul to the diamond mines. this show got these truckers kicked off the diamond road and the oil road up there not exactly sure why but i know they arent allowed to go back, and this isnt that bad of a job, i been up the dalton and up where they were drilling past inuvik. beautiful country up there for sure!!!!

@wbctruckin ...OK..You could be cut off from you market from Canada. But then you would have to import things from China. Canada is you best trading partner. Why would you wan't to cut Canada off and yet demand that you still could transport goods too Canada? We pay $500+ a load to sell the USA goods. The USA pays in the final price. OK, let's cut off the Gas, Oil and electricity too and the electricity as well. The usa gets it oil imports from CANADA AND not from the Arabs! Same for Gas!

@sinbadvett: And spelled is spelled 'spelled', not "spelt". Looks like you were one grade ahead of whoever wrote that.
Report spam or abuse
You may want to consider enrolling in a spelling class on your off time. All sentences start with a capital letter. Living is not spelt "livin", it is spelt "livinG". Going is not spelt "goin", it is spelt "goinG'. Last but not least, UNEDUCATED is spelt as ALL ONE WORD, not "UN EDUCATED" such as how you spelt it in your opening sentence. Take this as not belitteling you or truckers for that matter, but consructive critisisim. Thanks for the job you do.

@sinbadvette. You spelled criticism wrong also, you dumb ass. Learn to spell yourself before you berate others.
