    If i was to drive for over 340 days and only take a weekend off every 2 months, realistically is it possible to earn 250,000 after all expenses ??

    That depends on a bunch of things. What type of freight. Your lanes and your expenses. But in theory it's possible.

    Are you talking about being a company driver, an OO, or a LP?

    I'd assume o/o based on the forum choice.

    A lot of LP drivers wrongly consider themselves to be OOs.

    You would need to earn roughly $1300 to 1400 dollars a day in gross revenue or $6,500 a week.

    Gross or net? At 8 hours a day, which roughly how many hours you'll be able to drive at 60 mph is 163,000 miles a year. If you're getting $2.00 a mile, you should be able to get $250,000 gross.

    The OP wants to make 250000 after expenses. I don 't see any way that could happen.
