American Loggers
« on: August 02, 2009, 02:15:10 PM »
Anybody caught this show on Discovery? I watched an episode a few weeks back, now the DVR records it every week for me. Made by the same people who make Ice Road Truckers, but exponentially better! I absolutely love the daycab starcars.

Yep. I love it. I can't believe how many of them get rolled over though.

I enjoyed it very much as well. I lived in the area for a little while and the conditions depicted are actual as opposed to a certain show that has bearded, laughing men driving on a slippery surface... :roll:

Hey Mike, I live in Falmouth, ME. just down the street.  They say that the show was taken off the air with 4 episodes left because the landowners were upset with the "content" of the show, whatever this means.  I didn't think it was too bad, a lot better than that stupid Ice Road Truckers.  The old French guy, Randy Bergoin, who tipped his truck over in one of the first episodes, he recently was crushed by a falling log and was thought to have been paralized, but from what we can find out, he is not parilized but very severley injured with many broken bones, and a broken back, but is expected to recover fully after many many weeks of work.  This just happened a couple of weeks ago.  He sure is a tough old bird, though.  He has a couple of trucks in the woods plus dump trucks hauling asphalt, I got this info from one of his drivers.

Totally agree with the others about this show, it's much better than Iced Road Truckers. Alot less pretend drama and more down to earth characters. It was on Friday nights around here and i was wondering why it had suddenly disappeared after about 4-5 weeks. Good show. I'll tell you one thing though, i wouldn't last on that job with all those blown tires they get!
