one thing that bothered me about season 1 is how they made Jay (Mr heavy haul) look dumb when he was pulling that dryvan on that special mission and he didn’t know how to slide his trailer axles .I would have liked to have seen T.J Tilcox come back for more seasons but he turned it down
Can anyone help me get ice road job. I currently live in Colorado

He certainly loved driving a truck, his wife and daughter were living in L.A. and he'd gone back to work for an outfit in Canada as he missed otr too much.
Stop rolling up yer windows when you shut down for sleep time in yer truck, especially when raining or snowing.
Listen to music YOU HATE while driving a good long trip.
Park for an HOUR at a fuel island, at a crowded truck stop, for no discernible reason.
Drive slower than normal between pick up and delivery and take other routes to increase the journey.
Stay out of Top Gear on any highway and stay under the top limit in grannie lane.

Lots of Challenging Things to do while not leaving the Family or leaving for a wee bit of time.
What about these ideas "keeping you busy with/without Truck Driving and some "time away from home":
LOG TRUCK DRIVER?
Logger or Tree Cutting?
Search & Rescue?
Ski Lift Operator or Maintenance?
Bus Driver = options.

It seems I made a mistake. I was silly enough to ask for help. I received in return an sol attitude and was told to go somewhere else. And to top it off my post was hijacked by folks talking about a TV show. Not 1 person asked about my experience. Who cares. Right.
Those posts told you what to do, what you need to have and if it's worth the effort to even apply.
Unless you go to Alaska to work there, you'll need a work visa to drive on Canadian Ice Roads.
Even if you get it by some miracle, the chance you'll be disappointed is very high.
Ever heard the expression: That juice is not worth the squeeze?
This is Canada today, my friend.
Another thing about Canada that I found out in early 2000, IF one has A certain Disqualifying Offence/Offense in the U.S.A., like a Class C D.W.I., such is a FELONY in Canada and required submitting an application for a Premiers Permit along with, at the time, a $250.00 NON RETURNABLE Fee.
I never went to Canada, nor did I travel into all Lower 48 States yet I had MANY CHALLENGES that kept away the "BOREDOM".
