Have you prepared for Winter Truck Driving?

There are some good tips from one of our drivers:

 

TOOLS TO HELP TRUCK DRIVERS WITH CONDITIONS

There are some things I carry on my truck every winter to help deal with winter conditions. From helping to deal with visibility to getting unstuck, these items, in my opinion, are essential.

  • A shovel. Accumulating and blowing snow can snow you in. Being able to shovel this snow away will get you rolling faster. Helping out the truck driver next to you isn’t a bad idea either.
  • Ice Melt. There are several brands that do an excellent job. Kitty litter also does a good job of melting ice. Warm tires can melt into ice, which can then refreeze. Rolling forward or backward a few minutes after parking can help prevent this. If that doesn’t do it, Ice melt can help get you unstuck
  • 3 lb. sledgehammer. This comes in handy if your brakes freeze. A couple of firm taps will usually break things free.
  • Ice Scraper. For obvious reasons
  • Chains/Tire Socks. Even if you don’t plan on “Chaining Up” these can also be used to get you unstuck.
  • Washer Fluid. Just in case you run out with no truck stops nearby.
  • Wiper Blades. A broken blade can easily be replaced if you have one on hand.

TOOLS FOR SURVIVAL

  • Winter Weather Clothing. A heavy, water-resistant coat, gloves, boots, a winter hat and coveralls help keep body heat trapped. If you have to spend any time outside, staying warm is essential. Don’t forget loose layers work best.
  • Extra Blankets. In the event of a breakdown where you have no heat, having extra blankets will help keep you warm. Even in a day cab, a blanket can help.
  • Coffee Can. A coffee can can hold snacks like peanuts or protein bars. It can also be used to shovel snow in a pinch. A metal coffee can can also be used to produce heat. Place a wide base candle inside the can and light it. Make sure to open a window to prevent carbon monoxide build-up. The flame from the candle will heat the can and the can will radiate heat. It won’t turn your cab or bunk tropical, but it may take the bite out of the cold.
  • Food. Peanut butter, bread, soups, baked beans, nuts, protein or granola bars…anything that is easily prepared and has a decent shelf life.
  • Water. The most important item of all.

  6. GO!!!
    This phrase was said by the first cosmonaut on Earth – Yuri Gagarin. (Yuri Gagarin)
    He was the first astronaut on Earth. He was Russian! …
    Now Russia is becoming a strong country, gas pipelines, a vaccine against COVID-19, an army.
    Is this very reminiscent of the communist Soviet Union?
    How do you think?
    Now we have total control in our country. I am interested in the opinion of foreigners.

    Do you know any techniques to help prevent content from
    being ripped off? I’d definitely appreciate it.
