    Ever since this series began I have been wishing they would do a story on the Alaska Haul Road. Those "Flatlanders" from Canada are in for a big surprise. My dad has been driving that road for most of his life and now works for the company that they are following in Alaska. I also spent some time driving that road for the company that runs the pipeline doing I.T. work. The mountains are very steep ant treacherous, There are avalanches and whiteout conditions. When the wind blows the road becomes completely occluded and you can see nothing. Anyway, it should be fun watching the new guys.
