    I've had this crazy idea for numerous years to try and produce or have a major TV network to help. Just to let the general public know of what we go thru, during a winter. And of course I'd like to include not only commercial contractors but state road crews, all over the globe.

    I've been saying the same thing for several years. I think the name should be a combination of all the popular reality shows...something like "Deadliest Dynasty of Snowplow Stars".

    I wrote to discovery channel 2 years ago and they were quick to say no. I think if I got a variety of contractors from all over to get some shots with a go-pro or similar and make a video resume. I "think" they would bite, but who knows. I got pusher cam footage, pretty cool if you ask me.

    It'd have to be entertaining. A crazy boss screaming and freaking out about everything, some hot women in it, that rebel employee that's always getting in trouble that the boss wants to fire lol. Kind of like that Lizard Lick Towing show thats been on a few years

    Would you let Todd drive your truck? I know I wouldn't let him drive my truck.....might have a spot for him on the shovel crew. :laughing:

    I have also always thought a plowing show would be a great idea. The only problem is most of it would be exaggerated and things would be blown way out of proportion.

    Its that most of general public thinks it's a cake walk plowing. Yes it isn't a hard job until you get the breakdowns, staying awake and working longer than an office jobs. And its a whole lot more than us the ones behind the wheel. We run 11 trucks, 3 snowblower crews, and 8 backhoes, and were a "small" company.

    Think about all the things you could stage that would make the show enjoyable. You could bury a car with someone inside, knock down a few light poles, rip the hose off a gas pump that suddenly ignites, drop a plow on someone's foot, have 2 guys fist fight over a job and then you could fill in the space between by showing trucks running into each other. I think it would be a hit!

    Was thinking the same thing. But he forgot back into a flag pole, get stuck in a ditch, have your plow fall off driving down the road and spending hours starting ridiculous threads on PS. :laughing:

    Do you guys actually think Todd would fit in a plow truck? Might have to put him in a loader.
