Dude, it's flat out amazing. My brother in law works for Kern. He says they'll take mid-week 5-day trips to Disneyland and never even have to claim vacation or even do a duty trade.

My favorite schedule I've ever seen is 1 on - 2 off - 1 on - 4 off. Good balance of not having to be draining if day 1 is busy and still getting a good chunk off the second "off" period. The long 8 days does sound nice but if I didn't use it for a vacation or plans I'd go nuts. Would have to go on a lot of overlanding trips.
