While I live in a dry county (and vote to maintain it), I should inform those interested that the city of Athens is now wet. Few Alabama counties that are dry are dry all over today!

 If you really like this work, not a bad place to do it. Dirty,dirty, dirty plant but great people. House tech's treat everyone pretty well. Not arrogant like some plants around them. Laid back! Did I mention dirty?  Well, maybe not that bad.
  It is in the middle of nowhere. cotton feilds mostly. Still, everyone here seems to work well together. I'll be back. With a "dish". No cable here.

Some sites you can sum up in three words.
Browns Ferry can be summed up in three letters: BBQ.
It's a great place with some of the best BBQ in the bedroom communities.

Stanlieo's Sub Villa (2 in Huntsville) has great cheese steak subs (and other subs I hear from reliable sources, but I can't pass up the steak!)

I can't remember the name, (but there's only one BBQ in Town Creek) but a little BBQ place in Town Creek, AL is South of Wheeler Dam on AL-101 about 1/2 block North of Alternate US 72 / AL 20.

They had good white sauce or red sauce for their BBQ. The slaw had lots of vinegar to really make a good sandwich (another SC trait I acquired!)

RomE is the salt of the earth. Do nothing of what he says though because we will all get a good laugh at your expense. And yes, Jimmys is a food joint or is that 'meat market"? Anyway, Mexican is big here too. Can't remember the name but never go to the one right on 72 across from FOODWORLD. The one down town athens near Krogers is best.
 As for The hungry fisherman, good but small portions and a little expensive(relative) The catfish cabin is good too and great hushpuppies. Also much soul food......Hey RomE!!!!!!!!!!!!  Love ya...............mean it.............Give us a hug :P

So how many contractors are there working at Browns Ferry these days?

I hear all my old friends have found their own little corner of Paridise down there!

Could you clarify what you mean by working?

Quite a few contract HP's here. There is no provision for house techs to cover Unit 1 Restart, so there are enough slots for all the restart work (though there is a little swapping back and forth between house and contractors in between plant lab and Unit 1.)

I can't give you exact numbers, but there are about 100,000 cars in front of me at the gate house each day!

2 in the cavity and 2 out of your clothes in the shower maybe! But you HAVE to work there at least once! The plant is rather crapped up (hee hee hee) but the folks there are fantastic to work with. They're used to dealing with hot stuff and pushy project managers. Ask to work the refuel floor with Wild Bill. It'll  be a hoot!

You can get a lot of really valuable HP experience there. For instance, you can learn how to crawl on 5 RAD smearable shield blocks without getting any on (or in) you. Maybe you'll get to find out how long YOU can go without a bathroom break before you start whizing blood. Like I said, you have to work there at least once. Think of it as a sort of boot camp for HPs. You won't regret it.

As a bonus, that part of Alabama is beautiful! Bring your fishing gear!

We will be glad to have you. Yes we have alittle bit of that Alpha thing here too on Unit-1. Bust your butt here and show them your a good worker and they might ask you to stay on for Unit-1 restart. Alot of experiened techs here - you can learn alot for some of the old timers. Wild Bill is the man on the refuel floor, that the place to be. Get your self some yellers, get in the zone and drag some smears. See ya soon! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Been to the Ferry multiple times. Good plant to get HP/RP experience at. Also will help Nukedog with that 2R/lifetime exposure. I won't make this refuel there, so everyone have a good outage!

Great group of people to work with. It's 60 miles from the house, but I got caught with the 6 - 10's 4 years ago and haven't been back. The bank tellers giggle when they see a 60 hour, no diem check from the Ferry.

I've worked Watts Bar and Sequoyah and I have to say - never been treated so good.
I mean 2 in and 2 out and they never mess with you when you're out. I would imagine being a sister plant they would treat you as good. Or would they not?

Don't you get spoiled by the plants up the River, Nukedog.   No such thing as 2 in and 2 out here.   It's all shift long!
get a drink, go potty, and back you go. (unless, of course, you need a shower.... >:()  If it's work and experience you want, here you will get!   Come on down............show em what you got.   Don't forget your puppy chow...you'll need it!
