Us, too.  Still can remember Shooter (best plant services I've worked with up there) coming out of the shower, pointing a finger at Bruno, and going, "You're the greatest!"

Anyone have any suggestions?

Someone was asking me whether a moped/scooter would be adequate transportation at PI during this fall's outage.  I've driven thru Red Wing in the spring and it seemed nice enough, but...

Anyway, how will it be?  ...weather-wise?  ...traffic-wise?  ...tolerance-of-slow-scooter-wise?  ....?

It would be OK if you are staying at the casino or the casino RV park.  It's a little long for anywhere else.  Weather should be good, we don't get first frost until late October or so and the really hot weather is gone, most days will be 60's to 80's for highs.  It's really a good time of year.  Red Wing and Hastings are each about 15 miles away.

Excellent!  I'll pass that along!  :)

Hey Dustball,

I just had my staff date pushed back to the 24th of August. They are saying outage will start around 9/15 with expected first layoff's around 10/02.

thanks keith.
You'd think we'd know that stuff up here!  Someone like Oly probably knows, but this is the weekend.
Wonder if they're staffed up.  We were so short last outage.  Did they change the pay at all or hand out any incentives?

Dusty,

I'm pretty sure PI is staffed. The early start dates usually fill up pretty fast. Package is a little better, but the best thing is MN in September. It will be slightly warmer than it was at Monti. If I get Mondays off, I may try to get up to Monti for Sunday night wings if Kruse still does it during non-outage. They do feed pretty well at PI on night shift. Hopefully the new RPM has been working wonders since last year. I still don't see the California to MN switch, but to each their own. Later.

I'll be heading up to the frozen lands on MINI-O-POLIS in April. Let's hear about this place, and what's it's like to work there... ;D

Should be an interesting outage considering I just heard the house techs rejected their contract and are currently working without one....

I am working at PI.  When we left work on Friday they told us that the House RP techs would work 40's when the outage starts.  That is what happened last outage when I/C voted down their contract.  This place has a long way to go before you can start saying positive things about working there.  I go to PI because the working people who work at the plant are good people.  The utility that runs the place does not want to pay them for a fair wages and benefits.  Sometimes I wonder why I come back...LOL

Maintenance (including I&C) did vote in a new outage agreement, as did Operations.  RP may still be waiting.  We're on our way to 80% for SG safety testing, outage starts in a few days!
