    If you're interested in California, Holland also located in Fargo runs out there frequently.

    When I was doing OTR I stayed overnight at the Love's in Barstow and the Petro in Ontario a good number of times. I ran my APU every single night and other trucks idled and ran their APU's too. I've heard about the APU thing in California but like I said, I've never seen it enforced. And at the Petro in Ontario they have a guard that'll circle the lot at night and who checks the reserved parking too.

    It's not enforced, but because it could be some companies stay away. Also developing relationships to find good paying outbound freight is challenging.

    This is true. I just wanted to offer perspective for drivers who may never have driven a semi through California before.

    The only NEGATIVE thing I can say about Magnum is I left for health reasons and they would not rent me a car home. They made my dispatcher pay for the rental car and I had to payback the dispatcher, I find this very LAME.

    I think it’s super RARE that a company pays your way home when you leave. You should consider yourself lucky the dispatcher helped you out. MOST companies forget your name the day you turn the keys in….
    I had my issues with Magnum… but I didn’t have an unrealistic expectation they would pay my way home. That was my responsibility.

    Most of the trucking companies I have worked for have paid for the transportation home. Only the ones that there was a unfavorable departure did they refuse to pay for transportation. So I was a good employee for Magnum, I left because of health issues and I expected them to pay for my ride home. So for all you newbies, a trucking company will pay for you to get there because your an investment but don't expect a ride home after you bust your a-s for them because now your worthless.

    As someone who is still considering this occupation and is looking at Magnum as a potential company I wouldn't be offended if I had to pay my own way home after I quit. I'm sorry you had to leave for health reasons but I don't see where you can have a beef with them.To put this in perspective do you think all companies in all occupations should just give an ex employee a few hundred bucks when you leave just cause? The cost would be astronomical and not feasible. Sounds like you had a good dispatcher there to help you out. Do you not have a credit card to cover a rental car or another form of transportation?

    I also doubt that they think you're worthless either. That seems a little dramatic. Did they wish you the best, tell you thanks and tell you if things change health wise to give them a call?

    Good luck and I hope your health improves.

    Wow that is weird, we rent a car for drivers who return their trucks to Duluth, it's sort of an incentive.
