    yup, were hauling diesel into the Diamond mines in northern Canada on the ice, 85% of the 600km long road is on frozen laakes, almost up to full load weights, loading 43,000 Litres right now. first trip was 10,000 L hahaha

      That reminds me; iirc there was a program in Discovery Channel about trucks on some snow/ice route.

      I hope/assume someone takes regular enough measurements to make sure the surface is safe enough?

          Yup, they use ground penetrating radar to profile the ice along with traditional hole and measuing tape methods

                Thanks for sharing the pictures.

                The juxtaposition of a dark sky in one edge, sun in another, and the aurora borealis is quite something. Some people pay a lot of money to get the chance to witness such a thing.

                  I'm really loving these pics! It's so cool how they use water to fix the "road" like that. Just goes to show how different things can be in other parts of the world. I had no idea stuff like this existed. And as a road designer myself, this is right up my interest.

                  That is actually the moon. IMO, the Aurora Borealis is very overratted. I went to see it in Iceland, and it's so faint and dim, very hard to see. All of the pictures you see of it are incredible over exposed. That's the only way it looks good lol. Still cool though, especially how it dances around

                    That's a big ol negative, all has to do with the sun. I've seen plenty where they literally light up the snow. No camera trickery required. All has to do with the sun and how active it is. Couple this winter with purples and everything in them. Sicks you got unlucky on your trip.

                      Cool nice to know! Yeah seems like all the pics I see of it are overexposed anyway, so my experience with it IRL matched that. Then again, I don't see many pics of it. It's still really cool though!

                            • Well, the season is over. Time to pitter patter back to Edmonton and take the summer off work. And maybe get around to going through all of the photos i took over the last two months.

                                And a retrofit project or two?
