    You might check with Schneider.They have a 2weekon,1week off program.You have to leave your truck at the terminal on your week off.I believe they have some part driver positions.That is the only company I know off that has what you might be looking for.

    With any of these companies, I'm sure you have to have some proven experience to be a slip seat driver.

    info off the Roehl site;

    Roehl 7-on/7-off Fleet
    The ultimate home time, exclusively from Roehl. Drive 7, be home 7. 7-on / 7-off Drivers are paid at the National Fleet rate (in 2004 7/7 drivers averaged 85,000 miles - $34,000). Please check with a Roehl recruiter to see if we're currently hiring 7/7 drivers in your area. Space in the 7-on / 7-off fleet program may be limited in some areas of the country. *Must have minimum of 50,000 miles experience

    knight has an express schedule. you're on for one to three weeks or longer, and off for a week. the only downfall is that you'll be slip-seating. you may get a truck that goes 65mph, empty it out for your time off, and get into another truck that does 61 pedal, 59 cruise. i've had a LOT of those trucks. they're no fun.

    Why yes..... but that doesn't make a difference in what the post is asking for.

    Instead of working 7 days in 2 weeks, they would work 8 days in 2 weeks, but still have a paycheck for each that would be descent. Honestly, you will get more $$ and miles with a 4-3 than a 7-7. At some point in the 7 days, if your running hard, you will need a 34 restart. With the 4 day run, you can avg a good 2000-2400 miles, take the 3 days off, then run another 2000-2400 compared to the 3000 in the 7 days.

    Gotta look at the big picture.

    Hmmm....that's a good point, however for some--like me the 7-7 might still be a better plan:

    a) If you don't live that close to the terminal, then travel time to home and then back to the terminal has to be factored in.

    b) Due to personal/home/family reasons it just seems less disruptive and smoother to take off once instead of twice per 2 weeks.
