Well here we go! Starting the outage Friday night. We are almost fully staffed, just lost 1 that I know of, but 1 more group starts this week. I'm keeping my fingers crossed! Already plenty of Ice Cream in the freezer. (Hey it's buy 1 get 1 ) Lots of new faces, we miss all of our oldtimers, hurry back! Will try to keep everyone updated! :-*

Well, it's over.  Brunswick was a site to remember.  JJ kept us all up to our ears in Ice cream.  All the people were great.  I met lots of friendly people who I look forward to working with in the future.  The lodging, well, a house on the beach.... need I say more.  It was nice to get 2 others to share the cost with.  If you go to the Brunswick front gate, you can still see the claw marks I left on the pavement. I didnt want to go, but my family was missing me.  I would love to go back next year and hope I can get the same beach house.  I cant say enough good things about Brunswick, but hey, if I do others may beat me to the punch and get hired before me.  Thanks for everything JJ..

JJ,

Sorry to have missed your outage this year. Some of us opted for more money at other sites. Try to get the pay rates up a little and more of us will return. It is a little health physics formula; pay them well and treat them well and THEY WILL RETURN !
Anyway have a great summer.

     I remember the many horror stories of this site, back in the 80's and early 90's.  After 2 decades I made my first trip there and all seems pretty mellow.  Lots of decent house mice and the shared resource techs were pretty good also.  Enjoyed the trip, hope to do it again next year!

I tend to agree. Maybe that's why our karma's so bad. Maybe JJ can save us some ice cream?

I stayed on Oak Island for the outage.  The Lucky Fisherman was a good Restaurant.  In fact, there are plenty of good seafood places to eat.  There is a little coffee shop on O.I. called "The Flying Pig".  It has high speed wireless hookup to get on-line, and they make a mean cup of joe.

If anyone hits the flying pig tell becky and daniel I said "HI".  Belly Busters was the night shift outage bar of choice since it was open! plus the bartender in the mornings a cute lil thing.  Feisty though!  hmmmm if you dont mind the drive blue water point marina is a good place to crash and also has a restraunt.  Thai by the sea is excellent, try thier duck....as for any other sort of culture expect to drive to myrtle or wilhmington.  HAVE FUN!

I'll be heading that way this outage.  Never been but have heard all good from those that have with the exception of those few on this site.  Looking for a place to hang my hat and park my bike, that is, when I'm not on it.  Hows night shift??  I don't do days well.

Areosquirl, glad to here you are comming ;D, and Jess we're sorry you're not! :' You'll find a pretty good list of the local housing  with phone numbers in the Facility Information Lodging thread. The place Jess mentioned also has a real good resturaunt! :P Nightshift is OK here, I hate it but I'm always on it for some strange reason???  Now what Jess said about 70' TB is if you are a deconner, and it shouldn't be quite as bad there this outage. We aren't doing all of the MSR work that we have in the past. If you're an HP there isn't a bad assignment, you'll love it here either way. The people, the weather, the plant are all good! And the Ice Cream is the best in the industry! 8) Look me up when you get here, I'm in HP Instruments, do you have a report date?

Musta missed ya last outage JJ......send me some duck from thai by the sea I miss it I tell ya!

Hey Everybody,  I'ma headin thata way soon.  Yep, we had a good time last year.  The 40 ft Breezway stunk real good.  Chester said that was the smell of money, ha.  I bought a camper and will be staying at the Longbeach Campground.  Aerosquirl, mail me and I'll tell you the sweet deal on the beach house last year.  We had a carport, not a garage.  It was really exposed to the elements, with all the salt spray.  I have a cherried out 83 Magna 1100 muscle bike I wish I could bring.  Looks like your a harley rider, Cool.  There's a biker chick from Sharon Harris that worked with us last year.  Anyway, I'm looking forward to another great outage.  Night shift was good, maybe I volunteer again.  At least I got a little surfing in before going in to work.

     Well folks, thanks for all the info  ;D  Sorry hadn't got back here sooner.  I found a great little beach house in Oak Island.  Up on stilts of course, so that lets me keep my bad boy up under something, salt air is bad on anything but nothing that a regular bath won't cure.  I am reporting the 20th of Feb, Sunday, only other place I had to report on a Sunday was VC Summer years ago, whats up with that??? 
    JJ I will be sure to look you up when I get there, but then I'll probably be easier to find than you will.  Not many of us females ridin and I'll be on mine every chance I get.  8)
    Magna, mine is a 95 Softtail Springer Bad Boy.  Designed after the Cafe' racers HD put out many years ago. Not many of em around and they were only built 95-98.

Well we're about halfway, reload starts tommorow.It seems to be going fairly well, but we won't make our dose goal. Higher than expected dose rates and quite a bit of real high dose emergent work. But we still have ICE CREAM

First of all the house techs and house supervisors are great and they get better with age.  Brunswick is a great place to work and a great place to visit.  It stinks that the feeding frenzies have stop but we still do have the ice cream.  If the upper supervision takes that away then we will have serious problems.   If you dont want to make a load of money then Brunswick is the place to go.  People are friendly and the work load is not too bad.  (unless your in the turbine)  The one bad thing about Brunswick is whoever is negotiating the contract for  the ROAD TECHS is non existent.   We use to get two hundred in and two hundred out  cap.    Now with the great negotiating (we now get 40.5 cents per mile)  we get 300 dollars TOTAL for in and out.  So needless to say if unless you live fairly close to Southport you max out real quick so there are alot of people like myself who now get a hundred dollars less than in previous years.  Also 21 dollars and 85 per day seems a little low into days market, but I do understand I accepted that no gripes.  Just please whoever is doing the negotiating please think about the road techs once in a while and not yourself.    Take care  JJ and keeps those cameras rolling.   PS  Stay away from the RB people they are spreading the sickness

...We use to get two hundred in and two hundred out  cap.    Now with the great negotiating (we now get 40.5 cents per mile)  we get 300 dollars TOTAL for in and out...

 
I've been staffing the Progress Energy (formerly CP&L-Brunswick, Robinson, and Harris) since the early 90's(Crystal River joined the pack in the elate 90's) and I don't recall a "two hundred in & two hundred out" cap - I did some digg'n and this is what i came up with...
this is just a clarification, not a justification
...over 5 yrs ago it was 18.5 cents/mile up to $100 in and $100 out.  just over a year ago it was 20.5 cents/mile up to $125 in and $125 out.  Now its 40.5 cents/mile up to $300 total, you can max it all in or spread it between in and out.   
 
If it were up to me as a recruiter I'd pay the highest possible travel pay I could.  After all the lower the travel (and other rates) the less likely individuals will work those sites or even worse stay in the business.  As stated before I'm not justifying the rate, I'm just showing that it actually went up, not down.
