  • The ice road season continues with some tough assignments and increased competition.

    9.2
    It's hard to believe that there would be a traffic jam on a road that doesn't exist for most of the year, but there is. A number of trucks want to use the same limited space at the same time, and delays inevitably result. Time is money, however, and the intrepid drivers of the heavyweight vehicles must find ways to break out of the torpor. Hugh Rowland and Rick Lemm are competing against each other, and it adds to the drama that Rowland is Lemm's boss. One thing leads to another, and the two may find that Nature can still overtake any goals that mere mortals might set. As always, it's an exciting and witty show.moreless

    • Narrator: Some will hit the jackpot, some will jacknife, and others won't even get out of the gate.

    • (referring to his boss Hugh Rowland)
      Rick Yemm: If I can beat Hughie, I can brag all year long that I have beaten the polar bear and I can come up here next year and tell all these guys, everyone that we see up here, the guys in shops, the guys everywhere, and they'll all know, that the rookie beat the polar bear.

    • Rick Yemm: The only fear or concern I got is that Hughie is gonna beat me. I'm pretty sure its gonna happen, but I'm gonna try my darndest to not let it happen.

    • Narrator: Each day the truck is down, it can cost $1,400 for a lost load, plus the cost of repairs.

    • Narrator: Beneath a frozen lake in the tundra, lies a billion dollars of unearthed gems. This is the Snap Lake mine of the De Beers corporation.

    • Jay Westgard: The key is to be quick and then you don't get cold.

    • Narrator: These are not conditions that De Beers is accustomed to, it's the company's first mine outside of South Africa where it never snows, much less hits -35.

    • Alex Debogorski: You know what the good thing is about this weather? You can see your breath, that way you know your still breathing.

    • Alex Debogorski: Driving through a storm is kind of, I look forward to it once in awhile because of the boredom.

    • Hugh Rowland: I'm just happy to get back on the road and go make some money. That's what I do and I do it well. Everybody will be crying that I'm back on the road.

    • Hugh Rowland: Okay, were just gonna fire the truck up here and try her out, see if the fix is good. Cross everybody's nuts (crosses fingers).

    • Alex Debogorski: It was jammed for like five miles.
      Hugh Rowland: That's what happened? I heard about that. I heard it was closed for a while but, ey, it's a good thing I come by, they opened it up for me.
      Alex Debogorski: Maybe your smell that got them out of your way.

    • Hugh Rowland: Jesus, ice roads is a son of a bitch.

    • T.J. Tilcox: It's too f**king cold. I should have took the plane ticket home and f**king never come back.
