    Ok, my actual pay difference from my first sleeper run: $1,000 take home.

    If you have been wondering about how much sleepers pay, that's it for me.

    My normal run is about 55 hrs.+ every week(non mileage) and I'm full pay etc.

    So, say I usually take home $1,700 per week, this week: $2,700.

    So, for those wanting to pay off their house or something like that, it's about

    $4k extra......per month. $48k per year for the challenged.

    Now, IMHO it would be a tough way to make a living. A whole other topic.

    Well, I'm only 57. "Normal retirement age is 62-65. I've had free insurance all my life(UPS) and I'm making the most money ever, for me. I can't get Medicare for10 years! Or SSI for 5 years. And I will take a 70% cut in pay. I was fortunate enough to go full time at 19 yo. I'm just not ready to lose everything.
