    This is way cool. Life is so cheap there, safety is simply nonexistent. Lisa is working on learning the language and making relationships. The guys are flipping out about how different everything is.....

    Alex already left!!

    Yes I've been on their heels since IRT started a couple weeks ago!

    Tonight, not sure who will be the one that rolled off the road. Hopefully not that Alabama driver!

    It was neat for that sweet gal to take on a puppy, even that fouled mouth mohawked guy had a liking to the pup!

    I hope its not Lisa!! [​IMG]

    That 'bama dude is really stuck on how different things are instead of making any attempt to learn. But he does know his trucks doesn't he??

    I didn't even know this existed until tonight - now I am really psyched. The kids and I have had great discussions over ice road truckers and now we have had a few great ones with this show. (They're in bed now but I'm still watching LOL!!) This is India unvarnished. A really good way to see another country.....

    Yea not very safe. I don't blame that guy for leaving at all. Very well could have saved his own life.

    Well the death belongs to a driver and spotter. Definately not Lisa.

    This time, Rick Yemm, the mohawked guy had to go home for his 21 year old daughter who was very very sick with CF. He had tears in his eyes and trying to be a man about it, it bothers him. He wants to go back home to be with her and to heck with the driving thing.

    If that is the case, Lisa really coming out good so far!

    Now if someone has to replace Rick, I would love to see Polar Bear Hugh do THAT type of trucking along with his blue streaking cussing words. He probably would mow them all down!

    I dont watch the IRT but am watching the Dangerous Roads one. You couldnt PAY me enough to do that. I used to be married to a trucker, and some of the runs I went on with him made me not want to be a trucker let alone try driving those roads!! One mistake is your last mistake. I know I was worried that one of the truckers went off the side but was glad no one did. Feel sorry for those who did lose thier lives and hope they catch that coward who ran off after surviving the crash that killed 5 others. I'll certainly keep watching this one.

    I am watching it. I watch IRT...love the show... Am glad Alex chose to go home, he followed what is right for him. For me, I wouldn't want to ever drive that road.

    What has stunned me has been the attitude of the other drivers!! Dag I thought new yorkers were bad! (Sorry NYers but driving in NYC scares the bejeebers outta me!)

    And the idea that those buses are paid for speed is scary as all get out!

    And the whole mob mentality thing?? I wonder how much of that is really a possibility or hype by Americans who really don't do the whole no personal space stand around shouting thing. India is not the only country by far that has no personal space!! We get crowded in and we get scared...... Do they really burn trucks and hurt drivers??

    I am SO watching this program!

    I really wonder how it got set up, y'know? Hey Alaska drivers, the season is over, wanna try something death-defying and earn some bucks in a foreign country? We'll pay your way....

    Anyway, I'm fascinated with it. I saw the promos and kept trying to set it up to auto-record on my DVR and ya can't do that until only 2 weeks before it airs. FINALLY got it set up. I, too, am glad Alex went home.

    You couldn't get me to even WALK on those highways!!!!!
