    yea they took those down for some reason. Those are the original vids. They were good till about the 3rd 4th one. Then too fake for me. Still nice videos though. Better then the Yukon ones..

    The yukon ones were a big disapointment. Kind of cool for me seeing them in areas I've been to or have been wanting to visit though. Also how has it taken me this long to find this thread?!

    I was super disappointed with the Yukon ones as well. When is that other show supposed to air filmed here in AK? I seem to recall this October or November on History Channel... Let me dig a little

    Here is the thread from alaska4x4network (which for some reason glitches and I cant register for!)

    He explained in one of the cruiserfest threads around here. Something about going too fast, horse trailer, and everyone being okay.

    Yep, family of 4 lost control through a corner pulling a horse trailer. Flipped the truck and trailer and the trailer landed on top of the truck with the horses inside. Micraculously, nobody, including the horses were seriously hurt.

    SO I mounted my National Luna single battery monitor to keep an eye on my group 31. Mounted it in my sunglasses holder and the best part is I can still fit a pair of shades in there :cool:
