Default Stuff to bring

Hi guys , could just do with a little advice on what to bring over at end of this month ... was just bringing light clothing and buy warmer there for winter ... or is it still cold there ? also i have a good sleeping bag is it worth bringing that or better buying there ?
As for sat navs i have a garmin and a tom tom can i get the maps there for these ? or better sell them and also buy there ?
Any good suggestions on essentials to bring with me from UK ?
I will be based out of Lethbridge and mainly living out of the truck will just hotel it on time off ... cant see point in renting a place if away all the time


Im sure there will be many questions from me and maybe you guys too so thanks in advance for any ideas you can give me
hope to meet up with you all eventually and soon !
Cheers lads ! ... Dave

Im in Calgary at moment and its warm here about 18C ,Winnipeg was 7C today.Clothing ,probably better buying here for winter ,long johns are essential wear in winter when its -40C ,Scotts are the best make (serious).If its a good sleeping bag and you dont mind bringing then bring it,alot of drivers use blankets or duvets,I used to have a sleeping bag.Your sat nav (GPS here) ,I think you can download the maps for North America ,dont know cost.I have a Tom Tom it cost $130 but its just for cars,the truck GPS start at $240 to $500,some give you weather forecast!All depends on how money you want to save or spend.Bring ,school records ,birth certificate,previous employers references from last 10yrs ,army service records anything like that you can think of if you are applying for PR.

The usual size of a bed in the trucks is 40 inches x 80 inches so a sleeping bag tends to cramp you when there is no need. A queen size bed-set fits quite well and comes with a thin comforter [duvet]. A couple of fleece blankets will keep out the worst of the Winter cold.
Also when you are living in the truck all the time, its easier to wash and dry a couple of sheets than launder a sleeping bag.
