Badger milk Rocks!

Ripped:  George Herbinko looked solid when he was training ...Hair..Donny is always in shape!

Hottest: My honey CC

Laziest: You pegged that one Radbas

Hardest worker :  The Grip is in a league of his own

Hardest Partier:  Can't remember 8)
 
Best coordinator: Catfish was pretty solid...Badge wasn't ready, see ya tomorrow!

Intensity level during a conversation: Yeah you Romo !

Baddest Rocker( next to me of course ): Lee Harvey cause he plays a studio light.

DT jr came over and played the first three songs on 5150 ...pretty impressive..then he got a computer
Jack u loyd you can't forget about some of the intense discussions me and gary lightfoot would have at ft calhoun with some of those tree hugging ,hippie, liberals that don't watch fox news,and like al frankin, and want us to hug the terrorists and the middle east countries so they will like us better.They could get heated.
so I think we should be on there too.

You need to have todd on there for best work out form for sure.

you are dead on about the Grip I love watching him a mike tabber seeing who was right and who was wrong when they were working together,it was quite entertaining

As we've already seen, you could probably make a "Top Ten List" in all the various categories. Rather than taxing my admittedly addled brain, I'm gonna just make a list of my all-time favorite "characters". These are the folks who always made me laugh and don't include those who became famous for being disgusting or slackers. In no particular order, they are:
       - Bill Mahoney
       - Wyatt Wood
       - Ray "Wildman" Perry
       - Billy Sullivan
       - J.R. Box
       - George Basquette
       - Dave McDaniel
       - Chris Brevig
       - Lou "Chin Loo" Lyons
       - Jack "Gonzo" Conrad

Some pretty fine techs on this list, as well!

Best Party Host: Tied between Bobby & Gary Leonard



I would have to put Eli Crosby, Jr in for this category also.

Sorry to tell you that there were MANY Hippie rent-a-techs years before St. Lucie existed... complete with the long hair, beards and beads. I knew a few of them very well. Some are still in the business and some are not. One memorable encounter in a bar near Kewaunee in 1976 had a 275 pound boilermaker turn and plant a kiss on the cheek of a 125 pound long-haired tech and call him 'sweetie.' The tech calmly turned to the boilermaker and said 'F***ing Faggot!' I thought I was going to die along with the tech and all of our friends. The boilermaker smiled and said 'I like this guy' and they were friends for the rest of the outage (a few months back then.) Da bidness was a lot different in the good ol' days...

Aint it the truth. I can recall the plant maintenance guys at Pilgrim ( who were generally older, more "stable" types) saying "Lock up your daughters, the techs are in town" when the bunch of us would stumble into GET. Good times!

Are you shocked because you didn't know that or because I can remember it?

Shared an apartment with Mr. Abar in '76 and worked Salem's startup through first outage in '77. I still remember bits and pieces of it.

Well if any of you keep up with the calendar here, then you'd know that yessss I was around when those long haired hippie type nukes were around... I remember several that I had huge crushes on and once my dad sent me back home via a free ride with a couple rather than put me on the plane by myself. Needless to say this was wayyy before fitness for duty.

Unfortunately I was under water during all the Long Haired days.   I did manage to let my hair reach my buttocks after leaving the Silent Service.  But I chose to keep it cropped  now.

 I have run into a number of those seemingly tripping techs over the years, mostly at dirt jobs.

If we are going to have a hall-of-fame we need to have an outage category.  I suggest the Duane Arnold Crack Repair in 78, Trojan in 1980 (Mount St Helen's eruption) among many other eruptions, the San Onofre Sleeving (Sleezing, Sleeping) Project, TMI Recovery. Gosh I can actually remember that far back.

How about a company category - Rad Services, IRM, Numanco, Allied, Chem Nuclear, NSS.
on and on.

Of course we need a recuiter category, tech category (house and road, both accomplished techs and the partiers).
