Product Description

Product Description

Just when you thought trucking couldn't get more dangerous, the new season of ICE ROAD TRUCKERS brings you to the most treacherous landscape on earth: northern Alaska.

In Prudhoe Bay (250 miles north of the Arctic Circle), a network of ice roads in the tundra crisscross river systems and open ocean to connect America s booming North Slope oil fields to dry land. Every winter, truckers have less than three months to shuttle critical supplies over the ice. The only problem is that there's just one way to get to this remote location: 400 miles of ice-covered, mountainous terrain known as the Dalton Highway. The Dalton is the lifeline to Alaska's oil industry. It's also the most dangerous road in North America and has claimed the lives of more than 400 people since it was built just 30 years ago. The next chapter in the hit HISTORY series returns this season with veteran drivers Hugh Rowland and Alex Debogorski, new drivers including the show's first female trucker and more heart-stopping adrenaline than ever before.

Chain up! Season 3 of this gripping History Channel series gets plenty of traction from its setting, the more than 400-mile "gauntlet of terror" known as the Dalton Highway. Said to be the most dangerous road in North America, the Dalton has reportedly claimed a life for each of its miles. "If the curves don't get you," the narrator intones in a dramatic John Wayne-like drawl, "the avalanches will." The drivers, a right-stuff bunch ("They don't pay us this much because it's easy," one proclaims), have 12 weeks to deliver more than 6,000 loads to the Prudhoe Bay oil fields before the ice roads thaw. Along with familiar grizzled ice road veterans Hugh and George from the show's first two seasons, season 3 shifts gears with its first female driver, the attractive Lisa Kelly, a motocross champion determined to prove herself as a heavy hauler in this male-dominated profession. The competition between the drivers to see who can make the most runs really takes a back seat to the potential calamities that await beyond every curve and over every steep incline. "Pick the wrong gear, you wash out," the narrator cautions, "hit the brakes too hard, you end up in a ditch." The road, it is said, never lets up, and neither does Ice Road Truckers. Photos of horrific crashes and computer-generated re-creations of serious accidents amp up the drama, but (spoiler alert), beyond tense moments driving through blinding storms or experiencing equipment malfunctions, the drivers emerge from this punishing season unscathed. Ice Road Truckers will especially appeal to truck enthusiasts who may have grown up with the Road Construction Ahead and There Goes a Truck videos. These drivers do some serious hauling (45,000 pounds is considered a light load) and it is fascinating, for example, to watch how 16-ton pipes are loaded and secured onto a flatbed. A feature film inspired by the series is reportedly in the works, but there's nothing like the real thing. --Donald Liebenson --This text refers to the DVD edition.

Format: DVD
Better than season 2. Either you like this kind of stuff based on real reality or you don't. If you do, this is season is a lot lighter and more upbeat than season 2. Once again we learn about another geography where trucks and ice, and the weather that goes with it, make resource extraction possible. Its fun, and we learn a lot about the climate, topology, and economy of Alaska.

Whats next ?? Russia ??

Good Reality Show June 15 2010
By George S. Augustas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I watched this show on the History Channel and decided that I would like to have a copy of it so I could watch it again.
The show follows several truckers who haul freight in Alaska. They mainly follow the Dalton Highway from Fairbanks to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. The show is primarily concerned with trips taken during the winter season when the roadway freezes over. Sometimes, freight is hauled over frozen lakes and rivers, and there is danger of the trucks falling through the ice.
The worst thing about watching the show on the air is that just at a very suspenseful moment, the viewer is abruptly thrust into a commercial. Consequently, the best thing about the video disks is the absence of commercials.
At the time of this writing, there are four seasons of "Ice Road Truckers," of which this is the third. Season four is currently being shown on The History Channel. If you are a fan of the show, I recommend this collection.

Ice road trucker 3 April 17 2010
By J. R. DuRocher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I'm hooked, I'm a trucker and I watch these all the time. I have made some changes in my own driving decisions since watching those who work hard and are professional. Finding slackers and trouble makers are a dime a dozen. Its all about getting the job done, Hugh and his ol friend get it done. Its tuff work and he is a tuff worker. Know many aspects of your job and you will be a valuble asset to your employer.
Don't complain do the job, when your the best of the best then you can talk smack to others. Hugh has his act together.
Ice road truckers is a video that anyone who has a place in their heart for big rigs, big hauls and edge of your seat excitment needs to see this. Its awesome!
