Ice road trucking is what its name suggests. It’s trucking on ice - clever name for the next ice-skating show if I do say so myself. But being an ice road trucker is not for the faint-hearted or the inexperienced. You need to know how to handle your truck and trailer on dangerous roadway conditions. Because after all, the road is solid ice. And let’s just be clear, when I say road, what I am actually referring to is a frozen lake. Yep, these truckers drive across frozen lakes for a living - is that wild or what?
Known in Alaska as the Dalton Highway, this icy road stretches for 414 miles from Livengood to Prudhoe Bay. And truckers travel this route back and forth for about three to four months. Think you could do it?
