    Hello to all,
    Iam starting school next week and Iam wondering if anybody has a list of things every trainee needs with them when I first head out with my trainer?I know its somebody elses truck so I dont want to over load but I dont want to forget something I realy need to have with me.
    I realize money and a sleeping bag is a given. What else should I bring so I can keep it simple but I can be prepared also?
    Are there any grips among trainers that they wish every trainee should know or think about?Besides saftey and just knowing how to handle a big rig.

    Thanks for any input
