    I have a CB and Ipod connector for my plow truck. How often do other plow guys have CBs in their truck?
    That'd be cool for some guys to talk on the CB...

    The minute it starts snowing my mother calls me and yacks my ear off.

    This year my wife bought me a puppy and i hope he is up to it this winter. Otherwise i work well just listening to the radio/ipod

    I'm thinking of putting a cb in the truck this year. Music is good, hell music is great! talking/listening to others would be awesome too.
    what do you have for a cb? I'm thinking of a Uniden pc78xl.

    Also bringing the dog is fun too, until you hit a bank a little to hard and they end up under the dash! hah

    When I have to plow at work I take my Bluetooth head phones that I bought to use with my Droid and listen to Pandora or any of the music I have stored on my phone.

    I just got the Cobra 29 WX NW BT. It have NOAA weather built in so its perfect for the Snow! I definitely recommend this one! I have it in my 6.4 diesel and LOVE IT!

    Cobra is the way to go.

    I agree! It's a nice break from the home, but why plow snow? Is that what were supposed to be doing when its snowing? Guess I should start doing that then. :eek:

    I dont do too well when im on the phone so i use my handsfree mount for my evo and It works like a charm. Its nice to give me plowing buddies a call during the storm. I also bring along my kid rock cd's, And and chug mt. dew to stay up. My old intern comes in alot also hes 16.. hes a cool kid loves plowing.

    The only time it gets lonely is in the middle of the night, on the far side of the property, when the snowblower runs out of fuel! :rolleyes:

    You hit it on the head. When I go out, it means the wife and kids are at home. Turn up the tunes and enjoy the beautiful snow in front of you!

    Sounds good guys, When you plow do you do sidewalks too or just drives?
