No not really a day off. Most other truckers look at log truck drivers as the bottom of the food chain in the trucking industry. I drove over the road for a year didn't like being gone from home for a month at a time. It some of the big companies that hire the driver right out of school so I'd say they are the ones to watch out for. Most of log truck drivers have been at it a while. No logger will hire someone just out of school. Got to have at least 3 years driving first.
