For the past several decades, two months out of every year, a truly historic event occurs: truckers in the world's most dangerous tundras carry vital equipment to remote outposts located hundreds of miles north of civilization... all over roads temporarily created by frozen bodies of water. The mission is to transport thousands of loads before the road literally disappears into the sea. Like their trailblazing forefathers, these truckers continue to carry on the lone wolf entrepreneurial spirit that built America, taking huge risks in the hopes of receiving huge rewards.
Ice Road Truckers is a classic story of adventure, perseverance, human ingenuity and, most importantly, danger. Every day the truckers are taking their lives into their hands. One miscalculation of the road, bad weather or an unseen road hazard can mean the difference between life and death. No matter who the driver is, taking frozen roads is a unique and harrowing experience and even the most seasoned truckers will find themselves challenged by polar conditions, isolation and the lack of creature comforts.
