Veteran truckers know to be prepared for what the weather might deliver. Beyond having warm clothes and a good set of chains, it makes sense to have some tools you can turn to if you should get stranded by snow.
A decent shovel is a “must-have” for anyone traveling just about anywhere this time of year. This Eliverne foldable shovel is such a tool. Lightweight and sturdy. it folds, has a large D-grip handle and an aluminum edge. Its handle can extend from 13 to 26 inches to accommodate the sort of snow removal you have to do.
