6-7 hours. But I take naps. So it is more like 4-5 sleep and then 1-2 hour naps.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

usually 8 or so. Naps are the best.

Althought my after work naps sometimes turn into me sleeping until the next morning. I'm a crab ass w/o 8 hours of sleep

I don't know how anyone gets 4-5 hours of sleep and then go to work. If i get 6, I'm falling asleep at my desk by 2pm

5-6 for me. Been doing it as long as I can remember...I usually get through the day without being tired.

On the weekends I do enjoy a good 10 hours sleep though

3-5 at the most. And Ron is correct, I typically go to bed around midnight, get up around 3 or 4.

As far as Ron is concerned, he needs 7-8. When we are at the track, it seems as if he is asleep about the time his head hits the pillow.

We have been doing a lot of trips to various tracks together with a bunch of other guys. Having a great time... of course, as Ron says, beer is just to make getting to sleep easier. Everyone sleeps well trackside!

4.5 - 5, weekends or weekdays. I'm always tired. No time to sleep.

zzzzzzzz .... wha! wha! Oh, I'm at work. I'm always afraid I'm gonna dream that I'm on the toilet, and the "toilet" becomes my office chair.

5-6 tops... and i think 6 is optimal for me. 5 and i'll be nodding off at work, 4 and under i'll be sneaking naps on the shitter

Anything more than 6 would be nice, but definately not necessary.

6-7 hours. Could be 8 every night if I chose, but I like to go to bike nights, and rides with folks in the evening. Then get home and watch all TIVO recorded TV shows from the day from about 10:00PM - 2:00AM, and then wake up around 8:30AM

I consider myself to be fortunate - I can sleep any where, any time. Normally, I'm generally ready for bed by 10:00, and am up between 5:30 and 6:00. I don't normally use an alarm clock, either, unless it's an especially early day (like on Monday, when I'll have to drive to Green Bay).
