    Steel Tanks 34'D 40'H 80,000 Lbs. climbing steep 18% grade on Baffin Island in Arctic Circle

    Add in the howling wind and the location, about 2,000 miles straight north of Toronto. How far north? They contract ice breakers... for the summer. o_O

    This is for the Mary River iron ore mine on the north end of Baffin Island. We hauled the shacks for the camp in the lower picture from Fort McMurray to Montreal to be barged up.

    The good news is that you're not likely to encounter much traffic...

    Does a driver need a radar detector?
    What happened with the oncoming truck at the end of the video?

    Holy crap. One tri drive that’s impressive. I love it when you don’t have to worry about powerlines, traffic all the things that make it so wonderful some days. That is some beautiful country. Thanks for sharing. I noticed he’s weighted up pretty good over that fifth wheel.

    18%. I am surprised they didn’t add a little help in the front or back.

    Yes that’s what I was thinking. I figured there would be one or two pushers.
