Cons: the climb and the elements
Well after leaving the staging area it was ether raining or snowing.
Or hot or cold, or a combination of any of the above elements. Management was pretty much out of the picture unless the turbine was not running by the end of the day, otherwise you had a team of roughly 4 people including your lead.
