    Thanks to everyone giving suggestions as what to pack for NLR. I have a couple questions. What kind of coveralls is everyone talking about? I have a pair of Carhart insulated coveralls that are great in the wintertime, would these be okay till warmer weather? Boots, I have a pair of steel toe boots that I wear that are in good condition, but do I need a pair of PAC waterproof boots? And lastly, what are the best gloves to use? I have leather work gloves, but they don't keep your hands warm in cold weather.

    Jim, thank's for posting the numbers, it really helps someone new like myself.

    Thanks and Happy New Year to everyone!

    I have two pairs of coveralls, one thin that I wear most of the time, and one insulated that I only wear if it gets really cold. I have found that if you keep moving at a good pace, you will stay pretty warm...even sweat.
    For gloves I use ones just like they give you at orientation. They are over sized leather gloves, not the good rawhide ones. No sense in getting the better ones because they all fall apart sooner than later. I have the jersey inserts to put in them when it gets cold.
    For boots, I have my hunting boots for when it gets really cold or if I think I am going to be out in it for a long time. Other than that I have my leather work boots from Wolverine which are also Gore-Tex so they keep my feet dry. I also have a pair of steel toe boots for places that insist that it be steel toe.
    Typically you are not going to be outside for more than an hour if you are doing steel. If you are doing lumber tarps on a lumber or drywall load, you will probably not be in sub zero cold weather.
    I always wear my ski cap under my helmet, because I have a shaved head and it gets cold really fast.
    Best of luck to you!

    Is the office open on Monday as it is the Observed New Years Day since it falls on a Sunday?
    I have been off all week and was planning on calling in on Tuesday Morning.
    I would think that most places are closed on Monday.

    My numbers for they end of the year.
    FUEL BONUS 2,772.65​
    GROSS PAY 51,123.49 net per mile .56190

    I ran 91,000 miles.
    Miles would've been better but I took I'd say 4 to 5 weeks off last year.
    Three weeks of vacation time and say 2 1/2 weeks at Freightliner for recalls and repairs. I could've took a loaner truck but I would just as soon take the time off. My bike loves it when my truck goes into the shop. Hope everybody has a prosperous new year.
    Have a great holiday, drive safe and enjoy the ride.
     
    JimTheHut Thanks this.
