Anyone a fan of Ice Truckers?? Dying for the next season to start...but I imagine it has to wait until this next winter....(yes I am a fan of Project Runway and Ice Truckers)

Knitting Guy...you're a trucker...watch that show? Ever want to attempt Ice Trucking?

We loved that show!! I keep waiting for the History channel to show a preview but nothing yet.

There is a show coming this weekend, I think, about Ax Men. Looks interesting.

I've never wanted to try it. I'm a Southern boy and not overly fond of cold weather. I get enough of it driving the Northern and Western states during the Winter months.

I listen to the trucker's channel on Sirius satellite radio every day and a couple of the guys on that program have been on the channel a few times. According to them a lot of what you see on that show is totally scripted and basically a lot of bull.

Darn it! ....but I guess all "reality" shows are somewhat scripted....so is Ice Trucking NOT that dangerous? Do they REALLY pay truckers that much money to do it?

lol - my 17 year old mall going, aeropostale and ambercrombie wearing, can't get out of the house in time because my hair isn't right daughter LOVES that show :rofl: She sounds like a commercial when she talks about it. "on the next episode of Ice Road Truckers drama unfolds when newbie T.J. has a heavy load to haul . . . ." She literally uses that wording!! :rofl:
