I have been doing this for over 15 years now.
Thats nice and all.. But he definitely was not suffering. I was taking home up to $500 a week at most (This may be low pay, I dunno. It was just to help me out for a couple months), $75 a day for gas - if that. He had insurance to cover us.. We had very few equipment failures over the time I worked with him. I don't know all expenses, but I'm sure he was taking home no less than $1500 for himself every week out of 3k.
