don't bother going to fulton most of the motels are filthy.
and the drive / drivers  to the plant on 00 road are unsafe.

south on hwy 54 is holts summit, about 5 mi north of jeff city.30 + mi to callaway going the river road( hwy 94.)

the best value inn is a newer (former ramada limited)clean hotel.1 800 909-8770 .
nice fanmily owners and approx $200 wk (last outage).
call early they only rent half the hotel weekly.

kathy and her husband prefer renting to hp techs .(bni)

[smiley=wave.gif] OK, the outage is over & the fine group of techs that came to help us are gone. How did we do in your opinion? I didn't have that much contact with many of you during the outage but did before it while building pre-outage scaffolding. Asa Wallace & Paul Pointer were the 2 I had the most contact with & I just hope you both come back next time. Nothing against any of the rest of ya'll, I just didn't have any contact.  :)

Did we do OK  ;), Really Good  =D, or do we still have a lot of room for improvement  [smiley=tp.gif]?  It's only my 3rd Nuclear Outage so what seems OK to me might not quite measure up in the rest of the industry.

If the scaffolding was built without anyone getting hurt badly....without destroying any plant equipment, then it was a good outage...it takes about 6 or 7 before ya realize there really isnt "good" or "bad" outages just "different" outages. ask 5 different people how the outage went you will get 5 different answers:) leaving intact always makes it a success.

Safety-wise I think it might be our best outage yet. Last I heard we had 2 recordables, 1 company & 1 contractor.

Scaffolding went pretty smooth as far as nobody getting hurt & no plant equipment hurt by it. Still had a few who needed some coaching on wearing fall protection but I fear that problem will be around a little while. I understand the desire to get the job built & move on to the next one but the wrong fall & you're laid up for months, life, or you're dead.  :(

I appreciate the feedback Dainjer. Still new to this part of the company. Worked at a few dirt burners & some other parts of the company before going nuclear. I'm impressed by the fact that it almost seems we're a plant that just happens to be part of a larger company & there seems to be a great camraderie among fellow nukes that I didn't see at the coal plants.  It's really pretty refreshing except the Navy-way-is-the-right-way attitude that still seems prevalent on many levels. I'm still glad I ended up here, kinda wish I'd come here years ago, but that's another thread. ;D

The house people are really nice and helpful.  Sometimes they get set in their way before the outage, but when the outage starts they are in there with ya.  The worse thing about calloway is getting to work with the roads being so curvy and the deer that you have to miss.  I know one thing the dayshift generator techs were "Pitiful"  espicially the two short ones, but other than that it was great outage and my card game has really improved.

It's nice to hear that the folks at Callaway are nice, at the same time, I doubt if the drive into and out from the site will change in the near future. Worked at Callaway during the first refueling outage and had a blast.

Many of the "Migrant Workers" did well at the local night clubs and especially with Westminster College in full swing.

Can you still fish for bass with live Gold Fish?

Have a Great Holiday Season.

Aloha,

Hey man, the 'river road' from Jeff city was under constr. last fall, 2002 outage, should make the long drive alot easier. They seemed to have the best of intents there as far as ALARA goes, with permanent shield racks on the loops and back flushing hot spots. They had quite a bit of problem with their power uprate and an axial offset anamoly that created some dose problems in the can but they are coming along nicely. A little behind in some respects and they could use a little more experience in the contractors  that they bring in but they get what they pay for.

The construction on Highway 94 is done and it does make the drive a lot nicer.  

Please give any suggestions you feel would help us "catch up" from being behind.  If you'd prefer to IM me that's fine.  I have no doubt that we have some catching up to do.  I know I don't have the knowledge or Nuclear experience to pick up on it all.  All help is appreciated.  I keep hearing about how at one time we were #1 in America, #2 in the World.  We may never make it back there, but I'd like to think we could.  Thanks for any help.

Dont get me wrong Nascar, you guys have an amazing track record for run time and you have a good looking plant, but from an RP stand point you guys are a little backwards.  There was a large recognition there about RP mission standards being low and the need for a better program. Being an INPO rated 3 plant (for RP) was a bit of a joke to some of the house techs, and once you get down to brass tacks an efficient RP program is one based on a strong philosophy about health physics. No written procedure or program is gonna do anybody any good without it. Made my job a little harder without a good perspective coming from the people there and it just rubbed me the wrong way.

Thanks Radghost.  I don't doubt we need to improve & appreciate any suggestions you can give me.  If anyone else has suggestions please feel free to IM me or post them here.  None of us has all the answers but between us all we can come up with the best way to do things.  I think our industry's future is going to depend on it.  Thanks for any help that anyone is able to give.

I'll do my best to swing this back to on topic. While I lived at the Lake of the Ozarks one of our Doctors down there was a guy by the name of Sam Brayfield. He had a gold record in his office from when he was a member of the Ozark Mountain Daredevils.  

Now to swing it back on topic, was the RP supervisor a house supervisor? Gerry, Cary, Keith?  I'll check when I get back to work Wednesday & see if somebody knows.  PM me if you want.

I've worked several outages at Callaway until they became outrages. I really liked the plant, the people, and the area around the plant. I wouldn't of minded going house there if it wasn't for some of the boneheads in management. but I guess thats everywhere now. I hear you guys got the ex-RPM from Cooper, why is he the EX?

Well, CC Store has its old name and owners back.  The phone number is still 573-676-5711 and the burgers are as good as they ever were. If I find anything out on prices I'll get them posted.
