There is already a site you can upload your pictures of outages and outage t-shirts, called NukeWorker.com

Why can't you use the 'upload picture' button here?

Seems like outages used to be different. We would show up and re-unite with old friends and make some new ones. Many of us were less than 30 years old and looking for a party. The outage seemed like more of a party than it does now. I think the majority have grown and don't think the same about an outage, we are here to make money and support our families. The outage shirt used ot be a fit, it was a great way to "remember that outage when we made a bon fire with the rental car on the last day and drank our bodyweight in beer".
Those outages just don't exist anymore...Thank goodness!

I agree that most of us have grown up and gotten wise to the world (thank goodness) but I am a firm believer that the short outages have been caused a ripple effect in our lives. Money aside, think about it. We used to spend 8, 9 months even a year working with the same people, eating out with them, partying with them and traveling to the next job with them. We were like a clan, a big huge family. Wives and children went along, so did girlfriends, moms (ours) as babysitters, it just didn't end.

I miss the old days and sometimes think we lost a lot more than rent a cars, paid hotel rooms and flights and long work hours.

Anyway if I've dampened your mood sorry but hey I'd still love to see some reprints of those old shirts ....

I think I still have a bunch going back to the late 70's.  When I started on the road (he said while tamping his pipe and fluffing the cushions on his rocking chair), outages were only a few weeks long.  We traveled as a crew - the same guys (with a few additions and subtractions) worked together where ever we went.  Following TMI, the outages grew longer as mods were implemented.  Something happened in the mid-80's where plants seemed to forget how to get of their outages.  Now we're back to shorter outages. 

Next time I get home, I'll have to brush the moth balls off the old shirts and start taking pictures.

Soooo true Camella, in some ways I miss the ole days too but glad I lived through them!
I worked peach from 86 to 88, had some wild times. Was there for the FBI raid and the operators sleeping in the control room. I think I still have the T-shirt.

Got to Calvert in 89 for a 60 day outage and they shut both units down for 2 yrs.....must have been 150 techs working together. Best times ever!!!! If I had to do it all over again I wouldn't change nutin!

could you format a page just for that purpose?  would it be practical, or used do you think?

What would be neat....if you took all of your tee shirts and made a quilt out of them.  Cut the sleeves and necks off...Let's say you have 30 shirts.. place them 6 wide- 5 deep and then add a border. Besides selling Longaberger baskets and knitting ,  I can sew.

Just wondering if anyone has any shirts from the eighties that Don Erwin designed? I can't remember which plant he was working at the time,  I know Robinson (S.C.) was one. If you guys have any info, please let me know. Thanks.

Tgerk, I have a few outage shirts from HB Robinson from the 80's.. ;D,, Goodtimes and many good people.. All though many people hated that place I loved it.

Sorry to say both my Nuclear grade road HO shirts fell victims to the cavity at ANO, they are probably in Barnwell, dig deep enough and you might find them..

Ya'll have a great outage season and stay safe.

Thanks guys. I would love to have any shirt he designed. I remember one was when the movie Rambo had just came out. He changed the name to Radbo!  I  have most of his oil paintings, but would love anything artistic he did. He was the best. If anyone is interested in his paintings, let me know. I have prints of his work. Mainly wildlife. Thanks again for the info.

The best outage tee I had or ever saw was one Don had made up at Waterford. Had a drawing of someone dressed out in one pair and a full face rising out of a swamp with sea weeds and mud all over him, holding a teletector as he looked back at a nuke plant. Thing must've had 10 different colors in it! I'll bet he sold hundreds of those t-shirts, every morning and night he was out front selling them, plant never said a word. I wore the thing so much I wore it out, I'd let ya have it if I still had it.

If you're still at where I heard you were, say hey to Mark D. for me and Cricket.
