Any suggestions? The only thing I left out of the first pic was the blanket/pillow/baby powder

Even with as light as I normally pack, it was hard to make this work

Working for a nudist friendly trucking company? Could the world handle such truckers? What have I missed in my time outside the US?

All major truck stops provide towels for showers. A couple of small hand towels will come in handy from time to time. You may need a larger duffle bag. Shoes, shower shoes, gloves. It's getting cold around the country. Be prepared for cold, rain and snow.

Speak for yourself, I've heard of drivers driving in their birthday suits.

What kind of winter clothing do you find that you realistically need while on the road?

What kind of winter clothing do you find that you realistically need while on the road?

I try to keep enough clothes on me to stay warm in the even I break down or become stuck on the side of the road for hours, which happened for 5 hours back in February when I-65 was closed due to accidents from frozen rain. Also something water proof incase you have to roll around in the snow, sleet, ice. I drive a day cab so it is a little more difficult to carry stuff than it is if you can leave it in your sleeper.

Day Cab:

A tractor which does not have a sleeper berth attached to it. Normally used for local routes where drivers go home every night.

What is a neck gaiter?

Bob is right though, a couple of years ago, the NY Thruway was shut down for at least a day, and possibly 2 or 3, I can't remember, with trucks and cars all sitting in knee deep or deeper snow. My daughter parked her Suzuki SX4 at her apartment, next morning, she couldn't find it. Not even a lump showing on top of the snow.

Happens every few years here, so pack food and clothing to keep yourself warm and fed for a couple of days at least, and also water. You can live a while without food, but you must have water
