    I can see the other side's concerns in the whole deal.

    I run in this neck of the woods year round & the show did not demonstrate at all what it is REALLY like working in these conditions. Last I heard Luna Logistics (they own & maintain the Ice Roads) was very displeased with the depictions in the show & refused to let the History Channel come back this year.

    When I am able to post pictures I have a whole host of what the reality of it really is!

    I can certainly post them, but it looks to me that they have to be one at a time? I would much prefer to just start a thread & post them a few at a time with proper explainations & place for comment.

    I will post a couple now, & more later :biggrin_25525:

    I have heard a couple of times now that the show isn't realistic. Can someone that knows, explain what is not realistic and what is?

    I'll go try to see the pictures as well.

    The show is definitely NOT realistic. They made the work seem much more dangerous than it really is. Yes, it CAN be dangerous, the hours are horrendously long, the weather can be terrible, but on the whole it is as safe as any other job out there.
