    i own some fingerless gloves they do have there place, driving a truck is not normally there place though.

    as far as wallet chains, i ride a bike and i still don't wear one, in my opinion it gives the thief a convent handle to snatch your wallet. when i ride my bike i put it in my pocket for my leather jacket and zip it closed. if im not wearing my jacket ill put it in the saddle bag or front jean pocket.

    sun glass's, get polarized fishing glasses, they are great for driving.

    hats personalty i don't wear them. i don't wear hats of any kind.

    shoes, tennis shoes are fine for driving but you should have a pair of steel toe work boots for when handling cargo.

    Man, how could you leave out the black leather vest?!! How about the cowboy boots (not the wussy low heeled ones that actually let you walk halfway comfortably, but the high heel ones good for nothing but keeping your foot from sliding through the stirrup of a horse).

    Also forgetting CB with a million watt linear amp and echo function.

    And the Batman starter kit utility belt with multi-tool, knife, cell phone, mini mag lite, etc. etc.

    At the TA in Harrisburg, PA, I actually saw a guy with the above to include the belt buckle and the chain wallet (CB cannot say), and, are you ready for this...
    HE ACTUALLY HAD A FULL ON 1993 era BILL RAY CYRUS MULLETT!!:biggrin_2555: NOOOOOOOO!!!!
    To the shoulder blades!! Any minute Rod Serling was gonna step out and say "Giorgio thought it was just another typical day in the TA..."

    That's why I've had nothing but problems. I don't own any of those. Off to Pilot.

    You know there is a very funny thread about fingerless gloves. I think you'll find it hilarious...

    Well I guess that counts me out.


    On a side note, I saw a guy at a T/A today wearing the head set while eating in the restaurant. Oh well, each to his own I guess.

    Guys, don't get too hung on guys wearing headsets eating supper... my hubby does it all the time. While I am on the other end eating my supper. It's the only way we can have supper together anymore.
