Ice Road Truckers season 2 episodes list:
Truckers venture 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle on the most isolated and dangerous ice roads in North America to deliver vital supplies to natural gas and mineral exploration sites.
It's a new season and a new set of challenges for the ice road truckers--the drivers of the tundra who carry vital equipment to remote outposts
Before the first storm of the ice road season strikes, Davey Lennie is called to rescue a stranded trucker.
MGM breaks camp to move everything to a new base, including its rig; a storm strikes.
After the storm clears, most of the truckers are ready to roll--all except Rick, who is on the verge of quitting and looks to Hugh for advice. For a second time, Jerry attempts the MGM camp move, including the transport of an expensive 50-ton derrick. He's assigned two of his best truckers to the task, which includes a risky practice called "Two Trucking," where the cargo is simultaneously loaded onto two trucks--one to provide the main power, and the other to keep the derrick from fishtailing around curves in the road. This awkward and massive load could tax the ice to its breaking point. At the same time, Alex embarks on a run to an unfamiliar location, Aput. When he misses his turn off, he is lost, confused and out of communication in a place where one wrong turn can find him on fragile ice.
The truckers have delivered the fragile 135-foot derrick to the new MGM exploration site, but before it can be erected, they must also transport the 80-ton substructure that will form its base. At 160,000 pounds, the base must be broken into separate loads, the combined weight of which make them the heaviest--and most dangerous--loads the ice will face all season. Veteran trucker Bear Swenson and Arctic Ice Road rookie Alex Debogorski are entrusted with the challenge. This is the heaviest load of Alex's ice road career. Compounded by on-going and increasing health problems, the pressure on this trucker is rising fast.
Bear and Eric must haul critical equipment to Langley at the same time a polar bear is spotted in the area; Rich is irate about a five-day trip he has been assigned; Alex's health deteriorates and he must be evacuated to a hospital.
Alex receives a grim diagnosis that might mean it's the end of the road for him; Rick threatens to quit if his boss won't let him take time off to see a doctor; the veterans haul the final loads of the rig move.
Scientists are on the verge of breakthrough, but the truckers must race against time to dismantle the Mallik Research site before the ice road melts; Hugh trains new driver Isaac; a truck in Rick's convoy experiences mechanical trouble.
Everyone mobilizes to haul away drilling sites before the ice road melts and they are swallowed up by the Arctic waters; Kurt encounters a convoy of "highway maggots"; a trucker volunteers for a dangerous mission.
The crew breaking down the Langely site races to the finish line as rising temperatures melt the ice road; Hugh's back-heavy load makes it difficult to get traction on the slippery surface; rookie Devon Neff makes his debut run.
Warming temperatures cause cracks and flooding in the ice road, making the truckers' work a lot more dangerous; Jody and Brett take on the challenge of moving a 66-ton derrick; Hugh runs full steam ahead.
Hugh and Eric are neck and neck in their race to claim dominance over the ice road, but time is running out with the ocean waters closing in; the truckers race to remove equipment from the Langley site; an Arctic whiteout threatens operations.
