    hmm had to rejoin, wouldnt take my password, then of course forgot email password

    Briefcase is fine
    training is usually good, as long as they want to learn, i dont do it for money ....its the aha look you give when you finally get something
    Things to bring... for a van trainer
    Sheets, pillow, blanket... trucks all have heat and air so no need for an uncomfortable sleeping bag
    Magnifying glass for late nite map reading
    extra shoes, rain jacket ... it will rain
    earplugs ...lol Im told I snore
    food... truck stops get real expensive or cash
    a weeks worth of clothes... terminals have laundry and soap
    towel not needed all showers include one
    all material given you at RDTC or Orientation, cdl passport
    a spillproof cup if u do coffee
    gloves for fueling and gloves for working
    not 3 suitcases or duffle bags of clothes
    most of the time you will get a shower every other nite... depends
    flashlight
    whiteout for those logging mistakes ( buy stock in it) not the pen the foam tip one
    if you didnt get issued an atlas buy one at a truck stop large font
    sweatshirt... shorts this time of year

    I agree on the large scale maps. Those are nice. Only problem,large scale doesn't have Canada in them. Might wanna take that into consideration. Maybe u can get a seperate canada map. Don't bother with the paperback atlas though,those fall apart in a couple of weeks. If u wanna map that has Canada in it go with the deluxe edition. Large scale sure is nice though. Good luck!

    I'm wondering tho, is a briefcase really needed, or just something that is nice to have?

    To say the least I can't see myself owning a briefcase....lol
