Congrats! Well indeed, the Coleman thermoelectric cooler is brilliant. A decent MP3 player will do for me.

Not sure i was made for trucking

Agree with DiverDriver. It's just temporary. You're gonna be fine. Just do what you have to do. In a few months time, you'll look back and be confident than ever. Good luck man.
