It was a joke, fcol. Once again I learn that I'm not as funny as I think I am.

Get rid of the q-tips, they take up too much room

? I love my q-tips. Iā€™d get rid of the towels, truck stop guide (trucker path), reading material (kindle app), neck gaiter, and half the writing instruments before giving up the q-tips. šŸ˜

I suggest 2 major things that have saved my life twice on the road..

1 and most important is 2 fat candles.. During winter if stuck in snow and cold and APU or truck is out, you can use to keep warm.. They can keep a cab warm, just remember to crack a window a bit to allow fresh air in..

2nd would be a good Sleeping bag.. Can serve as an extra form of warmth in winter, and also if there is an issue with truck and get put in a slip truck long enough till yours is fix..

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

APU:

Auxiliary Power Unit

On tractor trailers, and APU is a small diesel engine that powers a heat and air conditioning unit while charging the truck's main batteries at the same time. This allows the driver to remain comfortable in the cab and have access to electric power without running the main truck engine.

Having an APU helps save money in fuel costs and saves wear and tear on the main engine, though they tend to be expensive to install and maintain. Therefore only a very small percentage of the trucks on the road today come equipped with an APU.
