    Thanks for posting that, very cool! Feels like the first season of Ice Road Truckers where they merely played up whatever drama they could find instead of creating scripted fake drama everywhere.

    Why can't they hold a single camera shot for more than half a second? It's like watching a strobe light for 45 minutes. I want to get a good look at some of the stuff but the only shots they held were a phone call and a non-moving weather map image. :realmad:

    What's with the wheels on the plow? They seem to lift when the plow is lifted so it's not like they are taking some of the weight off the truck's front suspension, it seems like all they do is prevent the plow from scraping the pavement...only to follow up with a belly plow.

    Notice the headlights mounted to the blade? Neato!

    Why do they seem surprised that the weather is different 300 miles away?

    Why is a 53' box trailer sent into a blizzard to haul what would fit in an Econoline or Sprinter? That trailer looked empty.

    Sweet GPS with great resolution/accuracy but it might be better if it was a Heads-Up Display instead of a flip-down screen that they merely call a Heads-Up Display. A picture of the truck's position, rather than just turning stuff red, might make it a bit easier to use too.

    If "spin out" means loss of drive traction/getting stuck, what phrase will they use to describe a vehicle that got sideways and spun around? "Roll over"? (This complaint applies to Ice Road Truckers too.)

    Pass the plow truck? Yeah, that seems smart. [​IMG] There's nothing like going faster where the plow hasn't been yet.

    The couple who got stuck in an avalanche: The guy opened the drivers door, crawled out, and dug through to the rear door, then the girl crawled through to the rear door. Why didn't the girl crawl through the already-open drivers door?

    Their mountainsides must be littered with loads of Howitzer rounds. :jester:

    How is there no pile of snow around Ben Dinardo's truck after waiting overnight?

    I think I saw his roll of TP in the windshield from a momentary head-on shot. :laughing:

    At 35mph Ben "crawls" around the switchback?

    Why did he drive into the unplowed lot? Would he have done that without the cameras around?

    What does horsepower have to do with being stuck? It doesn't take 600hp to spin tires on snow, not even 8 chained tires.
