Was there '92 / '94 - always stayed at Port Paradise - 3 bars - no waiting.

The Head is going to be on site sometime late this summer.
Should be a fairly good outage, unfortunely it will be right in the middle of the fall outage season.
Hope to see ya'all there!

SloGlo,
It's only for a month, she'll never even know your gone. It has been said that it's a bit more interesting with me moving fuel, but you'll just have to see for yourself! It'll still be warm there in Oct, I'll even get you a little Ice Cream! ;)

How's the new RPM working out at CR?

I have been here a year and have had my doubts at times.  
Overall the people are nice but have some problems adapting  to change. :-/    Given a choice I would have perferred a REAL INPO 1 plant.

 In Crystal River, you are either part of the gene pool or part of the food chain.

All I will say is it is a different company since CPL took over.  Production is first.
INPO RPM = trouble

It was a VERY interesting outage.Hard to believe they have done it 12 times before, as this was less organized than some of the first outages in the 70's.HP site coordinator quit because of problems with the new RPM. Fortunately I never had the opportunity to meet Mr. NEW RPM. so I was able to escape with part of my sanity and a little pride.
On the positive side I lost 10 pounds during the outage due to heat and CR3's new paper anti-Cs. Definitely not a user friendly site. Having worked there before it is now in the list of " been there don't want to go back again plants.

Progress Energy runs it now? How does it compare between now and before they stepped in?

Crystal River was the first plant I worked after Uncle Sams Canoe Club. That was before FFD. At the time if you came thru the gate straight, on time, not holding, and made a reasonable attempt to do your job, you were considered a "Super-Tech" We were supposed to be working 3-10 hr shifts, but the house lead always let us go early when the oncoming shift arrived and beat us to the end of the access road for the "one for the road" beer tailgate held at the end of each shift. We had a rotational list of whose turn it was to bring the beer. I got to sample so many kinds/brands cause we all tried to bring something someone else hadn't.
There once was a nuclear protest group at our tailgate spot. We found out why they protested there---you couldn't drive to an oil slick, and most of the guys were there cause most of the girls were T-shirt/braless. I think a bunch of them became nukes after they talked to us.

Heard there were LHRA violations and INPO had a field day.  House Puke, didn't he work with you at Calvert?

Yep, he worked at Calvert as a Health Physicist, Assistant General Supervisor and then on to INPO.
Initially we did not get along well at all.  We eventually reached an understanding and by the time he left for Crystal River we got along fairly well.
I don't know what the issues are at CR, but I wish you the best of luck.
I hear they are looking for a new HP Supervisor.  True?

Do your yourself a favor and go to the Rainbow River, I promise you that once you jump in the cool, crisp, clear water of this river your life will change for the better.

This area, Homassas Springs and a few other isolated spots, are what Florida used to be like. Believe it or not (forget Ripley's) we took our children on a vacation a few years back and never once visited a theme park and we spent a wonderful week seeing FLORIDA.
