You must have adequate winter clothing with you. With unexpected halts or waits, you may have to be out in the winters for extended hours or unexpected events. With other truckers in the logistics chain being delayed you could also likely be affected.
Consider having a couple of extra phone battery chargers and even charging cables, atleast one spare one! With long hauls and winter conditions, you must be able to keep your phone in running order at all costs. Consider buying a charger cable from retail stores which offer this product. You may also find cables at Gas stations, convenience stores too. Also, keep an extra USB phone charger or two with you at all times.Make sure that your plan with your phone company is active and in good standing. Unexpected phone shutdowns can happen if you have not made your payments in time. Be sure you do not land into such a situation while you are in a trip and need the phone, the most.
Keep your truck interior organized and tidy. This may seem very simple and basic but it goes a long way in making your trip a pleasure and delight!
