Ice Road Truckers is a reality show that is made by the History Channel. It features truck drivers who drive large loads of cargo across the ice in Alaska and Canada. The crews are made up of mostly men but there is one female truck driver named Lisa Kelly
. Some of The Other
truck drivers include the following: Jay Westgard
, Drew Sherwood
, T.J. Wilcox, Alex Debogorski
, Hugh Rowland
, and Rick Yemm.
One of the most dangerous roads that the ice road truckers cross is the Dalton Highway. This is sometimes called the ice road and allows the truckers to get from Fairbanks, Alaska to the oil fields. In the winter, the oil fields need vital supplies and these track trailers need to deliver them their supplies.
Ice road trucking is a very dangerous job to undertake. Many tractor trailer drivers have suffered serious accidents and even fatalities when making their trips. During the show, we often see a tractor trailer tow truck operator. He often has to tow out tractor trailers who have gone off the road.
This show makes you become connected with the ice road truckers and feel what they feel during their everyday lives. It is a great show to watch for people who love action and adventure.
