I stopped in at Swift's Lancaster (Dallas) terminal. The drivers were watching the Science Channel in the lounge!

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Maybe it was stuck there and they couldn't figure out the remote. (Not that this could ever happen to me)

As a rule of thumb, I never change the station LOL (unless nobody else is there)...which is never. 😋

Where you parked? I am farther away from the building pulling a veteran trailer. Probably the only one haha, has the big flag on the side.
