I am getting ready to roll out shortly.. I am currently boiling water for oatmeal. When I started my new job, I decided to invest in equipment that would allow me to cook on the truck,( plenty of trucker friendly appliances out there) and help save me some money from not eating so much fast food. I also invested in various appliance's for cooking, boiling water and making coffee because you never know , where you might have to shut down or get stuck at because of the weather

Last night I went to Walmart, I decided to finally get a second set of bedding, originally I just grabbed a full size fitted sheet, and one pillow case or two pillow cases, also grab another pillow. Think the total cost was going to run me $25 not bad. But then I was going by the clearance section and found a discounted set including fitted, top and two pillow cases for $6. Major upgrade from what I was using, of course my sleeping area falls far short of Kearsey's five star sleeper

She's currently touring the country in her Freightliner "Bed & Breakfast" suite. Rumor has it that she has a Jacuzzi tub concealed under the bed. smile.gif
