Hiking & Backpacking with Military Surplus Camping Gear in the Adirondacks Eastern High Peaks Region
For this 2 day, 1 night adventure, I’ll be returning to Wright Peak to continue my search for the B-47 wing. I’ll be using the same milsurp backpacking load-out (with some additional cold weather gear), along with MRE (Meal Ready to Eat) food to keep me fueled up while I search for the remnants of a cold war era B-47 bomber that crashed on Wright Peak during the night of January 2nd, 1962.
My “big 3” for this backpacking trip are a medium sized ALICE pack, USGI Modular Sleeping bag with USGI Term-A-Rest sleeping Pad, and a USGI Poncho for shelter / rain gear. I scored each of these items for around $30. A gear list can be found at the end of this post.
No permit is required to camp in the Adirondacks, but there are rules and regulations regarding backcountry camping. You can find more information here.
