Another Item to consider is a first aid kit to be carried in his truck. I carry one in my car in the trunk, a full first aid kit. I bought mine at Sam Club. I'm sure you can pick them up anywhere at the big box stores. Never know when you might see or have a Emergency situation on you son's travels. Again safe travels to your son on his journey to Wyoming.

I'd give priority to cold/high wind clothing. He probably won't be going camping in the wilderness anytime soon if he's starting a new job. Be aware that boom town parts of Wyoming have little in the way of cheap housing anymore, and plan for that.

Good luck to your son

Amen...yes, EH, I realize that with the advent of the tech-savvy generation, the good old fashioned postal service has taken a beating. That said, my 24 year old daughter in Alaska regularly WRITES hand written letters and cards to family, so I know I raised her well. Moms love to hear from their kiddlings, especially when they take the time to write

And now that you mention it, I do have one can of coffee (generic store brand that was on sale) that is unopened but in a metal container. I miss getting my mayo in glass jars...because at least those I could re-can veggies in them!

One small note. While a GPS is a fantastic tool, it should always be a supplement to and never a substitution for a good compass. My grandfathers and father alike always taught me that unless you had a very good reason otherwise that you should always trust your compass - and any battery-powered electronic gadget is very vulnerable to failure.
