The new season is starting up on June 3rd. However, the surprise of the day is.... no Lisa Kelly. Whaaaaaa?

I was wondering when it would be back! Thanks for the update!

As for Lisa, I had read a while back that medical issues might end her trucking carrer. Let us hope whatever it was is only temporary and she will be back for season 7. :)

Thanks for the reminder. The program is a bit predictable, but it's good fun late at nite. Hope everything's alright with Lisa. I always thought that doing the IRT in various parts of the world was an unnecessary risk. Hope she wasn't hurt in one of those.

Ok, who else here thinks Porkchop is twice the idiot Dave (Season 5) was?

What do you think of Season 6 so far with no LK? Austin needs to be taken out back and have his a** beaten. At first I thought Darrel was going to be another Dave blowhard, but it actually seems he knows what he is doing, especially when he jumped in with Jack to get the aforementioned Porkchop's brakes fixed (while Porkchop sat in the truck confused).

Not sure what I think of the whole Canadian side. Hugh and Rick are 2 people I would probably not be friends with, but I like Alex.

My Setup

 

Why can I get to the "Adult's Only" area faster than I can get to the "ToDo" List?  DirecTV, that is messed up!!!

"As portrayed on television", Dave was a consistent whiner who didn't want to listen to his bosses. In my experience, when you are first learning the job, STFU, listen to your trainers, and ask pointed questions, not be a thorn in their side. As for Pork Chop, it was inattentiveness and laziness thats going to cost him.

As for Hugh, he has a mouth and ego so big you can drive a triple-trailer through it. The guy, however, is able to back his words with actions.

+1,000 - Pork Chop needs to go home before he kills himself or someone. Dave didn't come back this season, so everybody"s safe there. Hope it's permanent.

I miss Lisa, and I hope its temporary.

Peacocks Hugh and Pinky (Rick) are a waste. If it weren't for Alex, the producers could forgo the Canadian side of the season and I would never miss it.

Uh, Dave was fired from Carlile due to his performance and his attitude towards other drivers.

C'mon Mark, you know the producers can overlook little things like that. Pinky (Rick) was written off too, and he's back. Don't forget there are other carriers there or that the producers can change things a bit like they did for Pinky. ;)

If you recall when Dave left IRT:Deadliest Roads he stated while walking away that he was through with both shows & never wanted producers to ever call him again.

At least two or three. It started with a road(Tibbitt to Contwoyto Winter Road, according to Wiki)containing all of those portages, then the Dalton Rd and now the Dalton and whatever Canadian ice roads (Dempster Highway for one) they want to show us. Season 6 has three different roads, highlighting three different crews.

I wonder if Maya will replace Lisa in Season 7?

Does anyone have the gut feeling that this sixth season of IRT is going to be the final season?

Hard to say as cable networks like to keep their 'original' shows well past their prime.
