Hello Everyone!

Looking at a job at Idaho National Laboratories as an EPRO.

Seeing if anyone has experience in this area?

Moving from Seattle, WA if everything works out.

I don't know, but I'm gonna guess it'll be 17,000X cheaper to live there

I have been to Idaho, but not Idaho falls

It's just a couple hours from Grand targhee and Jackson hole, so that's pretty cool. I know nothing else. Idaho is a great state in general (I live in Boise)

It's pretty nice. Great access to the Tetons/Yellowstone and the Snake River is right there. It does have a heavy LDS population and Idaho is definitely an acquired taste as a place to live though. It's going to be a huge change of pace coming from Seattle.

My dad worked for the NRO out there and it is the place of my birth. Only good memories.

I'm getting out.

I guess they were looking to hire sooner than I got out. It's fine though, I am talking to Palo Verde Nuclear in AZ now. More money and warmer.

So I actually ended up interviewing for this job.

Just waiting to find out if they offer.

Also interviewing for a Solar Power gig in Austin, TX and a Instructor position at Entergy in Mississippi.

The Austin gig fail through (apparently, I met all their wickets, but they chose to go another route[Operations, training, and procedure writing])...quite unfortunate as my best friend lives there and I have heard many good things about that place.

Oh well, Mississippi is my #1 job because it is in my field of work and supports my degree.

So I ended up taking the Idaho gig.

Closer to the in laws and pay was pretty nice for the cost of living.

Been here a month and I like it so far. LDS hasn’t really bothered me much beyond the fact that damn near everything is closed on Sunday. Ha

Haven’t hit winter yet, so we will see for sure!
