Question Working "Travelers"

Any Nuclear or Refinery "Travelers" out there? I've been working the"curcuit" for years and always looking to meet other travelers to talk work opps. and "outage" and "turn-around" schedules. Compare "war" stories...

Just Asking??

Grew up traveling in a TT. Father was a steamfitter thru a Union. Longest in one place was 5 months, shortest was 2 weeks from the age of 10-17. That was so many years ago....

Man this is a great topic, wish there where more folks that would pipe in. I am I treated in hearing about jobs one can do while living out of an rv or tt, work at your own pace and own choice of place would be amazing. I love hearing these stories when I meet folks on the road.

I have found a theme that there are a lot of i.t. Or tec workers doing this, some trade jobs, the possibilities are endless.

Here's my story if anyone cares. I have a steady full time job that allows me to take large chances of comp and vacation time and/or long weekends which I use to fuel my obsessions, kayaking and fly fishing. To sport those toys and travel expenses, I work as a factory rep, and on site equipment sales. Yah, it's fun, but it's a break even proposition, I'm happy as a clam if my travel expenses to killer places are covered during the season, but I do it to travel with the family and play. See you all on the road

Nope, not a traveler. However I worked for a company once upon a time that built the primary cooling pumps for a lot of those reactors. Does that count?
