Kokopelli Trail Trip Report | April 2014 TCT Magazine

I never really considered myself to be an impulse decision maker. I’m as spontaneous as the next guy I suppose, but I’m also a responsible husband and father. Every decision I make affects my family. So when registration opened up for Cruise Moab 2013, I did what any responsible father and husband would do. I signed up without consulting my wife at all. Surely she would understand, right? In my responsible, think of others first mentality, I also signed on for the 3-Day Kokopelli Trail expedition prior to the start of Cruise Moab. Once I reached the “pay now” portion of registration, I paused.  I called my wife and explained how epic this trip was going to be. Would she mind staying home with the kids while I traveled the back country of Colorado and Utah?  “I’ll only be gone for 5 or 6 days” I said sheepishly. “What about us?”, she asked. I promised her that next year we’d do Moab as a family. Complete with comfortable accommodations, indoor plumbing and hot showers. This year however, I need to get away on my own. It's important for a man to venture out into the wild on occasion and  it’s refreshing to know such places still exist in this country. But was I prepared? Was my vehicle ready? This isn’t a trip to the store. It’s 150+ miles of backcountry expedition travel. It was time to take a hard look at what I needed.

Aftermarket roof racks are a popular outfitting modification for 4Runner owners. One of the benefits is the ability to mount essential extraction tools to the rack for ease of access. Shopping for a shovel or axe mount system that fits the rack securely can be a bit daunting. There is a way to make a perfect fit, and to do it all for around $15.download_now
