Season two of Ice Road Truckers debuted on The History Channel in June of 2008 and fans were again fascinated by the conditions that these men face as they make their deliveries. Back again for Season 2 are Hugh, Alex, Drew and Rick along with two new drivers. Season Two of Ice Road Truckers is now available on DVD from The History Channel in a set with Ice Road Truckers: On & Off the Ice. We follow our favorite drivers as they travel even further north facing more treacherous conditions and ice roads to reach their ultimate goal of being the best ice road trucker.
Season two saw the drivers traversing the Mackenzie River ice road, which crosses rivers and the ocean. This road is more dangerous than the ice road they faced in season one and will test the driver’s nerves and abilities as they make their deliveries this season. They will be delivering heavy equipment for the Mallik Gas Hydrate Research Project and MGM Energy this season, which will require oversized and heavy loads crossing ocean ice road. With new ice roads and heavier loads, there will be dangers that are more perilous and different problems that will arise during season two.
During the second season of Ice Road Truckers, we see the drivers face more accidents on the road as well as a blizzard, which shuts the ice road down. The drivers face a new danger this season – – a polar bear is sighted along the ice road. Warming weather threatens to bring the season to and end before the drivers can complete they loads north because of overflows and weak ice. The drivers continue though even though the conditions are making driving more dangerous. It is thrilling to watch and you will be on the edge of your seat wondering I they all make it through this season.
Ice Road Truckers Season Two DVD set, including the special On & Off the Ice DVD, has features that are not available anywhere else: “About the Ice Road”, “Meet the Truckers”, “Life in Northern Canada”, “Dangers on the Ice Road” and “Artic Animals”. In these fascinating featurettes, we get to know the truck drivers better, see how drivers must deal with artic animals and get a better look at the ice road and the hazards that the drivers face when traveling on these unique ice roads.
The second DVD included in this set is the reunion of the drivers from season one. Ice Road Truckers: On & Off the Ice gives a glimpse of the drivers from season one a year later. They answer questions from fans, tell about their adventures during season one and tell about what they have been doing since the end of season one. This is a great DVD to have
