Ice Road Truckers Meet the Snow Flyer

by Willy Vinton

The 2011 Tired Iron vintage snowmobile rally has come and gone, and it was a blast. We moved our 1917 Model T Snow Flyer into the shop last week to get it ready to participate in the rally's festivities on the frozen Chena River last weekend.  The temp was in the -5 F range--not too bad when the sun was shining, but when a little breeze showed up it got rather cold.

We got a nice surprise when Maya Sieber and Dave Redmon, stars of the History Channel's "Ice Road Truckers" and "IRT's Deadliest Roads" and their film crew stopped by for a visit. We introduced them to our original "ice road truck" and gave them a ride.  I think their recent adventures in India made them forget what cold is, as they did lack a little in the warm clothing department. The cold ride no doubt gave them a taste of what the old timers delt with on the roads of the day.
