Had a great year. When I first started trucking I was worried if I'd be able to make good money. Last year answered that question. Deductions are blue cross blue shield (family). How'd you do?

That's great money Bird! Here is how I did. This paycheck only reflects 49 weeks as I started January 21st.

I just managed to sweak past 90k, had I not lost the one run I had to a extra bid I would have broken 100k. Hopefully next year

Speaking of numbers. I'd be curious to see some total dispatched miles from some of you that are OTR drivers.

I ran 130,000 miles this year. Honestly, I didn't push as hard as I have in some years. I made good money, and I never felt like I was pushing too hard. I'm curious how that compares with others. Any feedback is appreciated.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

I did 123,000 in Southeast regional and home at least once a week. Many weeks I was home more than once. It also included two weeks off for vacation.

Regional:

Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

I got between 40 and 50,000 miles.

Nothing to write home about this past year. 2020 will be much better.

I'd say that IS something to write home about. The fact you turned that many miles after being sidelined for so long, and what you went through I'd say that's DAMN good

I totally agree with Rob. Superman is way too humble!

My last check isn't showing here so add another 4k to gross. First year hauling cars and with training and getting my routine down, I didn't start making "good money" until about April(started 1/6/2019). Ran about 70-75k miles or so. Hopefully 2020 is an even better year! Happy new year to all.
