Well done!If your are planning to apply for PR bring your school records (if you went to school ) ,very important that,job references for the past 10yrs,in fact bring all your documents that you can think of, you might need them and make photo copies.When you get here you can buy a GPS ,maps ,cell phone and long johns ,Scotts are best brand ,seriously.

GPS i got a Tom Tom $130 but its not a truck GPS you just use commonsense.The truck GPS start about $240 up to $500,i think Rand McNally are good .Cell phones I have are pre-paids ,no contract 1 for Canada its Telus and 1 for USA a Trac-phone, the roaming charges will kill you,for me the cell phones are just for emergencies as the truck has satellite system to communicate its up to you if you want a contract but i dont blether on the phone

Congratulations Slippy on the job. Regarding GPS, I just use Google maps on my phone and it works a treat. Although like Neil said, you can't follow it blindly.

Cheers guys, yeh I'm heading to winnipeg cos they asked me in the interview where I'd like to be based and I said winnipeg, it worked out treats cos they need single drivers for that depot yeh jimmy sorry for not phoning on Friday but went out for some celebration drinks and it got a bit messy lolol. First things on my list is to get a phone sorted out cos am taking you out jimmy first chance I get to get drunk lolol. Think I'll need to get a contract phone, bought myself an iPad to Skype my boys but if for any reason I can't FaceTime them I'll still be able to phone them and not worry about running out of credit. Will phone ya tonight jimmy if that ok?
