I've been watching Ice Road Truckers for some time now, and alway find it interesting! At first glance, Lisa Kelly would seem to be more of a model than a trucker! But much to my surprise, and delight, she has proven herself to be a fair match for any man behind the wheel! Lisa Kelly! My hat goes off to you! You are not only a beautiful lady, but a skilled proffesional as well! I hope we will all be able to see much more of you over the months to come! Congratulations! You've made my day, and… Continue

Ideally this person will write because they love the show and want to help spread the word, but I can possibly pay a little for a good quality writer. Please send me a message if you're interested in writing and helping… Continue

Hugh got a bit too cocky not listening to the trainer when he was told to slow down... he needed to be put in his place lol having him sit in the passenger seat....good for him lol....he is an accident waiting to happen to my point of view... Alex very smart guy ...if I had to choose witch person I would feel safer driving with it would NOT be Hugh that is for sure. Alex I would feel safer driving with him ....he is smart not cocky and does not have to prove anything to anyone unlike Hugh.

Feb 28th's Convoy went extremely well.
The Crew From 40FM.NET did a sensational job of running the Truck Show as Did Lights On The Hill with the rest of the Event and Boomer Bullbars Ute Show was a great addition to the Convoy, UTE's and Truck's are synonymous with each other.
The whole day went without hitch, with some very shiny rigs indeed turning up for the event and showing support for such a great cause.
We as 40FM were there on the day too… Continue
