I'm surprised Gold Rush hasn't been mentioned. I try to watch it when I can.
They have done a couple episodes devoted to the production of the show.
I gotta say, there are a lot of people and cameras at the site during filming

There used to be a good show on that was similar to Ice Road Truckers where the drivers, one of which was a woman, drove trucks on some very
dangerous mountain roads in India. That was pretty good too.

I think that was a spin off from Ice Road.
The city driving was as bad as the mountains.....

Yes, the city driving was bad too. I think they had to get special permission for the woman driver to be able to drive a truck there.

I love driving in the mountains, but you couldn't pay me enough to drive on the roads they used in that show.

I was watching that show, I couldn't stand to look, that was just crazy. I didn't use to be afraid of heights, I could walk the top plate on a three story building and not think anything of it, not now.

Man did I get this thread off track, sorry.

That is Lisa Kelly from Ice Road Truckers and she has her own web site. Probably right now she is out on one of those roads as 1/2 of the show is now made in Manitoba where I am. Lots of remote villages and native reserves up North and the only economical way to get freight there is over those roads. Apparently in the future we may have airships doing the same job and they are working on them now.

The off shoot show was in India or Nepal I believe and wow those roads are crazy and the truck she drove or they drive are ridiculously unfit to drive IMO.

I stopped watching Ice Road truckers when they let one of the big burly guys drive an independent road in Canada and he was hotdogging for the camera the whole way.

When he got to the destination the owner of the trailer was almost in tears from the unnecessary damage - the route he took was deliberately the roughest, worst road in the area.

I won't buy car insurance from companies that wreck things in their ads, and I won't watch Ice Road Truckers for the same reason.

Take all the drama out of most of those programs and you would have nothing, some are not much now. We watch less and less TV all the time now days.

I only watch a few channels: A@E, Discovery, Smithsonian, History but find quite a bit more good stuff nowadays. Especially with a high def TV it is great.

Moonshiners, Swamp People, Gold Rush, and there is a new one coming called Shelby the Swamp Man who is that wacky guy from Swamp People or Ax Men 2 yrs ago. After that I surf the net
