Looks like NASCAR translated. Other than location, it's a good post.

Great place to work.  Unlike PVNGS, they seem to appreciate you and the work you do.

How does one actually get into Diablo Canyon?

Where do you apply for outage work etc.?

Help would be much appreciated, thanks.

While at work during my plant's last outage I was told that you can sit on top of the turbine building and watch whales swim by.  Man if I could afford to live there, I would apply for the NLO ops positions that they have open.

I was there for big blue's last staffing. '91 I think
During training, which was held in the evening for the upcoming night shifters, the instructor called a break because the whales were visible out the training building window. We weren't due one, he just thought we should take that opportunity to contemplate our place in the world.
Definately the finest place I ever went.

   ..."before 1973 the sierra club had been in favor of nuclear power...the sierra club was one ot the main reasons the diablo canyon facility was built. after 1973  the united states did not need additional plants, and the sierra club and the environmental movement supported only solar and wind power. the fact is that from 1973 to the present day the united states has had no need for new power."   nuclear power and the spread of nuclear weapons, leventhal, p 226

Second highest in the country last I heard...

We paid $2300 for an okay two-bedroom condo last time I was there.  (...2003?  ...2004?)

Batman,
Check out the Rose Garden Inn in S L O.  They had great weekly rates when I was there ('97) and the place was clean.  It was a lot better than it looked from the outside.

Batman,
The Rose Garden Inn in Pismo Beach/ Arroyo Grande is cheaper than SLO.  If you are looking to motel it, there are several with kitchenettes in Pismo Beach, and most give outage rates.  If you want a furnished condo, check out Coastal Vacation Rentals, http://www.coastalvacationrentals.net/rentals/index.php, they have a lot of furnished condos.
Looking at anywhere from 1400 a month and up for a one bedroom, most have washer/dryers and you have to pay a cleaning fee and security deposit.
They all charge a room tax unless staying over 30 days.

If it is your first time there, check with other techs when you get to training.  Usually, there is someone looking to share a condo.
Hope it helps. Let me know if you have any questions, I am going there this outage.
It is what it is!
