Yeah, I've seen it before. And I agree with you. Better be one large pay check waiting at the end. If you make it.

Of course I live in a desert and the only good ice is in my drink.....

It is a whole mini series, kinda like a reality show too. Being the characters are in a contest to see who can have the most safe deliveries. They got some vetran drivers, some rookies, some drivers with experince. Over all I think it is a great show so far. I will catch it again next week. My wife even liked it. So maybe we can watch it every week with each other.

I think that would be a good spin off for this show. Sand Road Truckers, talking about semis going through the desert of like egypt or somthing like that. Having to deal with the extreme heat. I would not mind that as much as I would the ice. I mean you can still die in the desert but you can also survive alot easier in the desert just need lots of water.

I saw it, they are brave folks. I believe I would do it. A years salary in 8 or 9 weeks, heak yeah. You say it's to dangerous, well so is most of the jobs in this world. Just a chance I'd take. Looks like fun to me. Did you hear those trucks cranking up in that 40- weather, they sounded horrible.

They sounded like my truck in the winter when I forget to plug it in. But you Alabama boys would not know nothing about that extreme cold of the north.

I used to do that when I was in the military. I was in Antarctica, and the runway was built on the annual sea ice. C141s would land unitl the ice get to e 7' thick, then they would stop flying in. We would use LGP D8s to drag sleds out to the runway with fuel bladders on them for the planes. Keith
