21+ years and she traveled with me to nearly every job with kids in tow. Tried to get her to stay put in the beginning but she said she didn't have these kids on her own and she wasn't going to raise them by herself. She seemed pretty determined so I just did like I was told.

My husband, Henry and I traveled with 3 children also from 1981 to 1988 when I came off the road. It has been very hard living almost 2 seperate lives for the past 16 years, we kept the phone company and airlines in business to keep in touch. It has been nice these last 2 years traveling with him again. Here's too all those wives at home . . .

I hope we last that long. We've been together 17 years, 2 kids, and he's been back on the road. It is hard. Congrats to you.

Hang in there. I promise you the best is yet to be. As I travel around with Henry, the world looks new again, its fun rediscovering yourself and your spouse after being "momma" for so long. Heck I even went back to college and am almost finished with my BA in Psychology, need it with 3 techs in the family  ;)

Pappy, I know your problem, you must be stubborn. Anybody that keeps trying to make things work out, is either too stubborn for their own good or a brick short . . . if you get my meaning.

I wish you all the best on the next 10 years and more, 3rd times the charm. My dad was married 3 times and his last marriage to our mom lasted 30 years before he passed away.

There are still a few of us old timers that have beat the odds and are still married after a career as a Road Tech. I just passed 27 years with the same wife. She was an HP on the road with me for the first 5 years. I just met up with another couple that I had not seen since Oyster Creek in 1978. 
It is easier now as I only do a couple of outages a year and we all know that it is hard to find a job that lasts more than 4 -5 weeks.

  First time around, I married Joann, my high school sweetheart. We had 14 yrs together before she passed away in 1995. Second time around, my current wife Earla and I have 7 yrs and counting under our belts.
  This spring I hope to celebrate 25 yrs of steady employment at the same plant.  I'm thankful for the stability this has provided my family all these years. If you can handle the road life, more power to ya. Enjoy the scenery while you can! 
  Merry Christmas to all!!  MM

2005 will mark 30 years and two wonderful children. Too many plants and too many sites, but the same great wife. Hey I'm getting off the road again, I promise! No really this time for sure!

23 years this Feb. 2 kids 2 Nuke jobs and still counting. There really is not much else to do in Barnwell. But if you try I here there are still many ways for a married man to get in trouble.

Forgive my ignorance...
what is a road tech (I assume you travel to fix stuff, but what do you all really do, how long do you travel) and what is an outage (again, when the power is out, but for a storm/disaster)?  Hub has been navy since he graduated hs and still is.  My uncle did line work in upstate NY, and used to travel when big storms would take out lines all over the state.

we have been married going on 9 years, all of it navy time.  2 girls.  it's wonderful to see families who have survived being apart!!

a "roadtech" is essentially a contractor or any one else that is part of the temporary labor force brought in during the outages which is a shut down for maintenance and refueling purposes.  Many consider a road tech HP or Decon but really the term can include any other profession that one would travel around and prostitute ones self to any given company for any amount of time generally for the most money one can find.  I know this isnt a great description but gimme a break I just worked until 3am.  Im sure some of these fine folks can go at it in further detail!

Almost 25 years of marriage with 2 added on before we took the plunge.  I'm so grateful that we do the same kind of work so that we understand each other's work headaches.  It makes it a little easier. :)
