12 Days of Christmas for the New Truck Driver

With Christmas coming up, I thought I'd make some gift suggestions that every new truck driver needs.  While I was trying to think of a theme, Rich Campbell (he's the Director at the trucking school I graduated from in Springfield) and I were talking and came up with the idea of trying to do something with the 12 days of Christmas - so we're going to give it a try!

Some are actual items you can buy and there are some links where you can pick those up.  Others are things that may be out of a truck driver's control, but we can certainly wish for them, right?  Anyway, we hope you enjoy the list!  Here we go...

On the 1st day of Christmas, my true love gave me (this new trucker)

1 good flash light and a compact tool set

2nd day: 2 plastic organizers

3rd day: 3 good black ink pens

4th day: 4 good books

5th day: 5 DVD movies

6th day: 6 pair of jeans

7th day: 7 pair of boxer shorts

8th day: 8 pair of warm socks

9th day: 9 months of good weather

10th day: 10 easy back ups

11th day: Rand McNally 720 Truck GPS & Atlas

12th day: 12 months of safe driving

Merry Christmas to all!
