It is hard to say how many times I have seen the movie, "Dante's Peak" in the 18 years since its release. While a bit on the cheesy side, the one thing that keeps me going back is the modified Suburban equipped with what I have come to refer to as, the Lava Snorkel. Watching Pierce Brosnan fumble around to get the rig into 4-wheel-drive while already floating down the river is hilarious. He finally engages it, and the big red Sub emerges from the river unscathed and running like a champ because, "it’s okay... this rig has a snorkel".

I do remember seeing a lot of smiling faces, and I am positive I was grinning from ear to ear the entire weekend. This weather helped me, at least, slow down and really take my time to talk to the instructors, vendors, and attendees.
What is Rock Therapy? It’s a Moab adventure created by wheelers for wheelers. It’s an outlet for many to get away and clear their minds. It’s an excuse for many to take their rigs out in one of the best known off-road trail systems in the country.

You probably saw a few photos of this very nicely built 5th Gen 4Runner from our SEMA 2014 coverage last year. Toyota was kind enough to place this truck in their outdoor featured vehicles area and it was very well covered.
