The first Truckers News and Overdrive Trucker’s Gear Guide of 2019 is loaded with ideas and equipment to help make 2019 your best year yet whether you’re a company driver or an owner-operator, a veteran of the road or new to the profession.

If you’re one of the many folks who see the new year as a way to make fresh start, especially when it comes to your health and well-being, then the Trucker’s Gear Guide can help. Professional driver Jeff Clark suggests building a 30-minute walk into your day, and there’s an article by life coach Carolyn O’Byrne about creating a plan to help you eat well while on the road. The guide also has exercise tips truckers can use.

To eat well while on the road, it makes sense to have the right tools. The Guide shows you how to outfit your truck with some kitchen essentials: portable stove, non-stick frying pan, saucepan, slow cooker and coffee maker.

And, just to prove that a trucker cannot live by kale alone, the Trucker’s Gear Guide includes an easy recipe for one of the great comfort foods of all times: macaroni and cheese. And, this version of mac and cheese is perfect for your truck’s slow cooker.

But, the Trucker’s Gear Guide is not just about you and accessories for your cab, it offers tips for your truck as well. Specifically, there’s help on how to ensure your truck is ready for the winter weather you may encounter.

Finally, the guide offers some insight into the world of the trucker’s wife.
