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 HISTORYTM 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.

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.
Hugh "Polar Bear" Rowland is back in action with his Canadian style of humor taking the roads as a rookie. I tip my hat to him, saying, "Not bad!" when you consider he conquered the roads his own way, but unfortunately, not as the top scorer as he was in the first two seasons, which were done on HIS home turf if you consider the reason why. And the reason also because he had to spend a week training for the risks in what to expect while truckers like Jack Jesse, the Virginian who takes to heavy-hauling on the Dalton Highway like a pro, and Lisa Kelly are already on the roads battling the elements.
Alex is one of my personal favorites.Read more ›
I was expecting to see 16 episodes available in package, and failed to see the product details further down its page on Amazon. That was MY fault, obviously, but what really angers me the most is how small the picture is when played from my new optical drive. Season 4 does NOT have this problem, and there are all 16 episodes in that package. However, I've played that season so many times I thought it was then time to watch a different season. And since Season 3 was my original favorite of the "Ice Road Truckers" series, I chose to go with that. Amazon needs to improve the quality of their DVDs based on TV episodes, in my opinion!
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!
