Sweat suit flip flops gold chain blue parrot

Sandals, black socks, pajama bottoms or track suit pants, an Adidas jacket, dingy, stained wife beater shirt, large fake gold necklace, gold framed mirrored sunglasses. #1 item is a tablet or cell phone running 19 hours a day.

If you're going to be in a white Volvo pulling a reefer , all the above are required.

Bwahhahaha and your truck must have Volvo written in 18 inch letters in at least 2 places.

But seriously, flip flops unless you're comfortable standing barefoot in the showers...I am not.

Reefer:

A refrigerated trailer.

Try to talk to your trainer, ask how much fridge space you'll have if any. If it's OK, bring half a case of water. I don't think you need steel toes unless you are with a flat bed.

If a person's already got them, they should use them here, whether or not they're doing flatbed imo. Purchasing them specifically for dry-van? Not so much, maybe. At the same time, quality footwear is not cheap, and worth every penny, and it's not a significant price point more for steel or composite toes. That one is definitely a reference by personal recommendation as opposed to necessity though.
