    Finished off the year at $121k. First year I've made the club. Next year with my longer run I should be a perennial member.

    Six figures... In 12 months??? When I was still trucking OTR it took was about 20 months to cross that line. Then I decided I was tired of all the BS I saw on the road and came in off the big road to do some local work... That knocked my annual down by roughly 10k.

    Then that company screwed me in favor of a couple of contract operators.... Which made ZERO sense to me as they were getting paid $135/hr, where I only cost the company maybe $30/hr after all the employers cut of the taxes.

    So now I have hung up the keys (probably for good) and work a 10 hour shift, 4 to 5 days a week, under a welding hood. (Read as knock about another $10k off my annual gross income).

    An old friend (who is no longer a friend) heard I was welding again. And had the crazy idea that I had come in off the road to weld for more money than I made trucking. And tried to say he "told me so" that trucking wouldn't pay the bills. I don't even respond when he messages me, but I would love to see the look on his face if I told him that in the last 2.5 years I've taken a $20k cut in gross annual income.

    So now that 6 figures will take me about 28 months. But I'm happier and healthier than I was when I was making much more.

    It aint all about the money...

    That, sir is a very important point!
    It's about quality of life, and contentment. We can't take money or material things out of this world. As a wise man once said " I'd rather be poor and happy, than rich and miserable..."

    I agree with you 100%... Health is the real wealth. I was chasing the money hard until my first real burn out. Worst experience ever...
