Because normal people are not interesting tv. Who would watch a show about a family who works hard and acts responsibly?

That's why I don't watch reality TV, almost ever. When they came out with Ice Road truckers, I watched a couple shows and.. quit. My StepDad was a truck driver on the Haul Road and the Arctice Ice back in the 80's and I rode with him some around the state. The stories he could tell.... if I had written a book I'd have made a fortune. But Reality TV makes stupid things and drama more important than telling the real story. So tired of American TV.

So, I missed all the flying Alaska and deadliest catch and ????

But man, I love spending time in AK.

There is always contrived conflict between characters as well as exaggerated danger and hardship. If you believed Ice Road Truckers you would think there a dozen or so deaths a month on the haul road. I do like the Alaska State Troopers show.

Yes . That is somewhat true about him. He likes to wheel and cause as much little damage to the trails as possible. I think they just exaggerated the whole scene tho. Hahaha.

One of my video on YouTube has us wheeling out by kings river. U can see him in front of me with his older Rover.

Hey Wayne when did you run with wild Bill? I too raced with him and the gang from Delta in the 90's, I helped Tom build Mudzilla...I had the black Dodge on Boggers. Small world

NO WAY, really? When were you in The Banks? I was at Eielson from 91-98. The ONLY time in my life I didn't have a motorcycle........ Was the longest 7 years of my life not really, but I got into mud bog racing though and had a blast with that. Tom and I have known each other since 91.... REALLY small world.
