5 Simple Winter Survival Tips for Truckers
- Get A Great Winter Jacket and/or Snowsuit
- This is a must for all truckers and well worth the investment.
- Make Sure You Have Plenty of Gloves & a Good Hat
- Having multiple pair of gloves enables you to wear a fresh set while drying a wet set.
- Wear Boots That Are Right For You
- Thick boots with lighter socks or thinner boots with thick socks - pick what works for you.
- Stock Up On Food
- Have at least 2-3 days worth of non-perishable food on hand just in case of a breakdown.
- Keep Unfrozen Water
- Frozen water is tough to drink, so always keep some bottles in warmer conditions during Winter.
