Winter clothing items

Do you think people in southern states don't need winter clothing? Even though we live in South Carolina, it can still get really cold here.
Last night (January 6, 2014 going into January 7), the low temperature plummeted to 12° F. That was just one degree above the record low on that date!
When my husband Mike and I were on the road together, we packed
a variety of clothing with us. Of course, in the midst of the summer months, we didn't take lots of winter clothing, but we have been in Wyoming when it snowed in the summer!
I suggest packing winter clothing items that you can layer. For example:
* a long sleeved shirt under a t-shirt;
* a sweat jacket;
* a winter coat; and
* two pairs of socks;
are all items that you can layer.
Then, there are the knit hats that one can pull down over one's ears and gloves. Depending on where you travel, you can also wind a scarf around your neck and face to keep warm.
To save room in a truck closet, think about putting the sweat jacket under the winter coat on the same hanger. You can even arrange to hang the hat and gloves on the same hanger with clothespins.
Also, don't forget to take care of your feet with appropriate shoes. Swapping out your shoes will help the worn ones to dry out or just last longer.
