I swear.. I locked my keys in my truck yet for a second time since I went solo... it's terrible, I noticed it as I was shutting the door but I couldn't catch it in time... embarrassed.gif

It's weird because yet again I some how got my phone just like last time, like I knew... rofl-3.gif

Thought I had a key zipped tied outside the truck, but it's not there. So yay me.

I did it once in my yard, I hit the button getting out and locked myself out. Had to do the walk of shame to the terminal to borrow a key to get in lol.

You might want to invest in the ol spare key around the neck, so you cant keep doing that. smile.gif

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.

Put spare key in your wallet :) lol had that happen years ago at work, pulled up to shop at quitting time 1 night, left my car running, while I ran to my locker, co workers thought they be funny and lock/close my door! took a bit with coat hanger to pop my lock! After that my spares went in my wallet!! They didn't get me again! haha

Funny thing is, I have one in my wallet... But I left my wallet in my truck as well. rofl-3.gif

I had to use the restroom and didn't really think about anything, beside putting my shoes on and got out. Big mistake. shocked.png

I'm sure I'll be paying for it this time, oh well. rofl-3.gif

I'll put another key on the outside of my truck once I get it unlocked.

Zip tie a key under the hood on the passenger side somewhere not obvious, but where you can find it.

I keep an extra key around my neck along with a key to my padlocks I use for securing loads with no seals or the cheap seals that can be torn off...

I have four keys. One stays in the ignition, one under the hood, one on my keychain, and one old key is what I hand to those few live load/unload places I’ve been to that require you give them a key.

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

I thought I had a key zipped tied outside the truck but must be thinking of my old one truck. Got this one not to long ago.

My wife was the first to lock us out of the truck down in Calexico. Company gave us a freebie lock pick service. 2nd time, my dog decided to lock me out of the truck, while i was trying to get something out of the sidebox. Luckily wife was sleeping in the truck so just took about 10mins to get her up. Finally got a spare made, next up were going to try and train the pupper to unlock the truck just in case haha

Jamie, I figured that fancy new truck you have would have a keypad entry system. Then all you could forget is the code. Better get several hide out keys placed in locations you can remember. I've already found one that the previous driver of my truck left under the hood. Although if I could find it, maybe it wasn't hidden well enough!
