"Big Log is a mythical, extended metaphor for a lost love: "My love is in league with the freeway... My love is the miles and the waiting." A Big Log is common lingo of tractor trailer drivers.

It was one of the audio performers on our cross country road trip that my wife and I took years ago. The long road trip was supposed to go all the way to the Eastern seaboard, but was interrupted somewhere outside of St. Louis.
