Layers. All the clothes should fit in a duffel bag or medium sized suitcase.

Keep in mind you can go to sleep in Donner with 2’ of snow and awake in a far warmer, milder climate.

Dress for success!

If you can spring for it I highly recommend Carhartt long sleeve shirts and jackets. They are more expensive than most other brands but definitely worth it in my book.

Thanks ya'll. I sprung for a sleeping bag liner. I generally sleep warm and a small travel blanket would be all i need as long as the cab doesn't get below the 60's. Mostly just trying to make sharing a bunk as easy as possible. I don't want to share my bedding so don't expect anyone else to either. Teaming should mean the truck is mostly running so I expect some climate control most of the time.

Been looking at a couple jackets at Rural King. A Carhartt and another that's fluorescent yellow. Don't care much about fashion, but the Carhartt has a hood and the other is a bomber, which I generally like, and plenty visible. Son has my car, I'll find out later which feels better.

I'm not a gamer so my only entertainment needs will be my Surface tablet and my phone's hot spot. small enough.

Hey Mark, I thought you might be interested in this old conversation about the top 10 things to bring on your truck. It is for entertainment purposes that I am including this link. It isn't exactly what you are asking about, but I thought you might enjoy reading it anyway.
