Pasted from my post on another forum: > This Summer while camping at the south edge of the Rocky Mountain's San Juan Wilderness, on our time off, we will prowl. We will look for old homesteads, sawmill sets, wagon and haul roads as well as settlers trails. We will be camped at Trujillo Meadows campground which is high enough and far enough into the wilderness that there is no electricity. Jeep trails sometimes are difficult, but the old settler's trails can be the worst, with very few clues remaining as to their existence. We installed a Garvin Industries Wilderness Expedition Rack to help get all of our plunder out there to the campsite. Once there and unloaded we need to use the rack to continue to carry such necessary things as a High Lift Jack, a Shovel and an Axe. Extra fuel will be on the Trail rack over the Spare Tire. These items didn't need to take up valuable space on the Expedition Rack during the trips out to Colorado and back. Compacting their installation was in order, and here is how we decided to do it: (Click photo for a better view.) ... Suggestions for ways to further compact our recovery gear, you know, those nyrlon straps and so forth, will be appreciated.
