Visited on a benchmarking trip in Oct. 2001.  Friendly people, very clean plant.  If we ever do labor-sharing with them I'd have to go at least once.  There are some things I'd like to bring back to Callaway from there, like the lake & the lodge.

There is many lodging around Wolf Creek. Some to save you money.
In Osage City, Ks (which is about 40 miles away) there is a Bed and Breakfast called "The RoseMary Inn" located at 210 Market St. phone number (785) 528-4498
It is a nice place and you might even get a good rate for weekly to monthly. Just ask them.
In Lyndon which is about the same distance. There is Lamont Hill. It's a motel with a resturant near by. Some of their cabin's have kitchenett's in them. (785) 828-3131
There are some in Lebo and at Beto Junction as well. But these are probably your cheaper ones. In Osage you might be able to even rent houses/trailers/apartments cheaper as well. You can call our local paper to find out what might be opened for your time of arrival. Osage County Chronicle (785) 654-3621.

I hope this helps.

I've worked several outrages at Wolf Creek. As for Burlington ks. All I can say is Burlington is an excellent example of why a limited gene pool is a bad idea!  (i)

Seriously, every time I went into a local shop for something, the clerk/owner would look at me puzzled like for a minute or two then invariabley say " You ain't from around here are you, you in for the outage?"  ::)

Wolf Creek is a fine place to work or visit, but don't go house. They hired Chicken George. You get hired for your offsite drinking abilities, work performance is secondary.  :o

http://darkmatter.nukeworker.net.istemp.com  this will get you there, but I can't update it anymore. Maybe nukeworker will host personal sites eventully

Worked at WCNGS in 1985 during Initial Plant Start-up and our first child was born in Burlington, Kansas. Kristen Kanoelani is now 17!

Luthers Smoke House and the Rib Joint in Williamsburg; I will not forget.

I now understand that there are some of the finest folks in the Nation after traveling abroad. We rented the cheapest housing to date and two came with property in excess of 20 acres. When we traveled away from Westphalia or Melvern it took just about an hour to the big stores and 1 1/2 to Kansas City home of one of the finest baseball parks in the AL.

I was there for the I-70 World Series and wore my KC cap even when down 4 games to one. George Brett!

Learned how to hunt ducks from my pal William Parks and learned the way of life out on the Prarie. One the greatest experiences in my life because the people were like those I was used to in Hawaii with their hearts wide open. There is a lot of predjudice feelings across the globe and these folks looked beyond that.

At the Burlington Bowling Alley, you could purchase fried green pepper rings from a fellow RCT s (Steve Trembel?) grandmother or drive to Williamsburg for the greatest ribs in the world.

Many played pasture pool at the local nine hole course.

At the plant, we had a great time. I have never worked with a harder working group of people than I have on the prarie. Many of the folks came from the "country" where hard work was expected.

It was a great experience for my family and I because we learned a great deal about life from many in the local community.

This is where I am so, so greatful. The road has taught us more than that contained within the Radiological Sciences and to hear that BIMBO, Nuke1, spout of the other day??? Hummm? We will forget more. ::)

Many, such as Nuke1, fail to realize that college or grade school is only one example of a learning institution and that there are so many around us! As many of you know, the road is the best institution if you can handle the heat.

The road is an extremely violent atmosphere when you are young and these folks in Kansas, I tip my hat to, because of the tremendous amount of knowledge they passed to us not to mention the hospitality that in some cases can cure any kind of homesickness one may possess.

I now know what Milo is!!! Hehehehehe. And that a Meadow Lark (Kansas State Bird) is not a Quail!!!! OOOOPS! I got one. You can't eat a coot! Shoot! Ed, boil the coot with a two by four and eat the 2 x 4! ???

Mahalo for a wonderful experience! ;)

It's the only other nuclear plant I've ever been to besides Callaway. It's a beautiful plant. I had the chance to go back for a week this fall to help in their Performance Corner. Friendly people, sure it's in the middle of nowhere, but so is Callaway. If they invite me back, I'll go without hesitation. Great people out on the prairie, many of whom I'm proud to call my friends.

Sounds like a reasonable rate of pay, but I'm sure they hate like hell to raise the bar! Maybe this can be the sequeal, Field of Dreams II,  "If you pay it, they will come"!

(Almost) Everybody knows there is a problem but does nothing about it.

True, to a certain extent - we, Bartlett, have watched the industry turn itself inside out so to speak going from more techs than slots now to more slots than techs - we've preached to our clients, prospective clients, and past clients for years about the state of the "road tech" supply out there...we've preached JHP programs, growing more JHP slots at outages, string'n outages together, better wages, diem - overall compensation packages, etc...I firmly believe the plant folk all agree that all of this has to change but when it comes down to it the power is with those that control the money flow...plants are scheduled to shutdown when they shutdown for 1 reason and 1 reason only - opportunity cost - or to say it another way - what time frame can we shutdown the plant so that we lose the least amount of revenue- not much we as a vendor can do except preach what we know, push for core groups, JHP programs, consecutive outage runs etc…its all in the hands of the Utilities.  This season most utilities that are going down will feel the crunch and not just on HP/Decon folk but also on Mechanical Maintenance, the Professional’s (CHP’s, Instructors, Engineers, Procedure Writers  etc…, and others.  This isn’t your daddy’s pre-deregulation nuclear power industry anymore.

I am sad because I could not make your outage.  I am sure I will make it next time and I do missed a lot of my road buddies out there.  And the house techs RP are the best I have always love that Plant and it is a pleasure to get back every outage.  Hoping to see you guys next time around.  Miss you all......Laurie
