Were you there when my dog shit on the floor at OGC? Haha, James had Nelson clean it up.
probably over budget and overkill(?)…but there was a rule that the first mod is a winch. but a jack-all is handy with a tow strap. tow/tug points front(most likely) and rear(like a hitch receiver tow shackle). safety first and preparedness and all that…have fun
I'd carry a good saw (24" bow saw is usually good enough), two 4' 2x6'. real spare or 2. shovel, axe, and a good strap before a winch. Not all straps are created equal. Farm jacks are awesome, but dangerous if your a noob.
Make sure you have people needs too. Water / food to spend the night. A military surplus wool blanket gos a long ways, its handy to lay on if you need to make a repair under the truck too. I always plan like I'll need to hike out, that way your good to go.
I usually have 20L water container too, helps cool a heat soaked rad in a pinch, and you can snub out a fire some dumbass left burning when you stumble on his campsite.

You have a different experience to me then, but saying that we had some less gifted superintendents running the show on my last job with Mott
I normally work sites with between 4-8 sparkies, I can generally go to any man Mott has on my the site (obvious juniors exempt) with an issue and its taken care of.
I do systems furniture and modular walls, we generally fuck the shit out of a site when we arrive. It makes everyones life easier to accommodate us I guess. Since our product is the visual end of a project, it has to be aesthetically perfect… We can't accomplish that unless the other trades pull their weight. Our ace in the hole is the fact the General Contractor usually dreads dealing with designers and the end user, so we get what we need.
My wife completed her pre-app this year and has recently joined Mott for the 1st year apprenticeship. She plans to go to BCIT next year.
I've also heard mixed reports about Mott.
My experience them is on site, as I work closely with electricians on a regular bases. They are always accommodating and quick to help out. Status and Powerpro's I'd have to say are on the bottom of my list for contrast.
I have no idea how it is to work for any of those companies though.
How come they don't teach sparkys to clean up their mess? Constantly catch them standing on finished surfaces or using them as work benches aswell.
Side note, on a site I worked some sparky built a super shady extension for his hammer drill to get into the ceiling. The guy used siesmic tie so he could pull down on the fastener to keep it seated on the bit. Something happenned and the wire got caught and wound around the extension and his hand, he accidently kicked out his own ladder. He was dangling from the ceiling, feet kicking freely in the air with siesmic wire tangled around only one finger haha. Poor fucker, at least he was just a little guy or that would have just ripped off.
