Trucks That Drive On Ice

Ho boy, John is just settling in for another episode of Ice Road Truckers, one of his new favorites. I find it interesting for about five minutes. It costs ten million dollars a year to keep this road open in the winter. They can earn a years pay in two months. It is a dangerous job. That is about all I want to know. My attention span wanders away pretty fast. I can't watch episode after episode of trucks driving over the ice road. All the episodes seem the same to me. They drive trucks...on ice...




He loves to watch Axe Men. I can not tell these episodes apart either. Just a bunch of trees getting chopped down by a bunch of guys episode after episode although I prefer it to the truckers. They don't swear as much as the truckers do. Those truckers sure do swear a lot. Beep...beeeep...beep. Good thing that I have a good book to read. I think I shall go do that...NOW.

LOL. I like Axe Men... But I don't think I could watch more than one episode a week.

(I'm going to fix that YouTube video so it doesn't hang out into the margin.)

Becky said...

(That's better.)

No way would I ever be driving on ice, what the heck are they hauling? Is it really crucial?
So, what book are you reading?

Christine said...

Thanks Becky, I don't know how to do that. I am reading Daniel Silva, The Unlikely Spy. It is one of John's books but still better than Watching truckers.

Umm are any of the Axe Men hot? Do they were shirts? Is there lots of muscle?

Get back to me on this.....

Christine said...

No, they are not hot nor are the truckers.

My hubby likes that Ice Road truckers show too - but as a trucker himself he can see through all the BS & identify the truckers with their names "fuzzed out"! We changed our tv package so he could get History channel - just to watch this show.

Oh dear!
So when does he watch the fishing show?

Momisodes said...

Oh man. 60 degrees below zero? No way. No how. I cannot, and hope to never, even fathom.

John sounds much like my husband. He would love this show. He can watch The Deadliest Catch over and over.

Men! They like the strangest television shows. Veto watches "The Deadliest Catch" on Discovery Channel about the fishing boats that catch king crabs, and he will watch hours of the Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction on the Speed Network.

I much prefer Ace of Cakes!

diana said...

i tend to agree. the show doesn't hold my attention.

but world's deadliest catch is a different story =)

I watched the ice thing for about five minutes once. I went to bed and turned the heater thing up to nine.
