Ok fellow truckers. As I am getting ready to go over the road after the first of the year, I am starting to ask for gifts that I need/ will use on the road. What types of things should I get? I have a few things already like maglite, satellite radio, truckers atlas. I need some ideas. Thanks guys and gals

Over The Road:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

I have been legit thinking about getting some sort of portable toilet for the road because one of my biggest worries has always been to get the craps in the middle of the highway.
