hoggarth_riverport posted a topic in General DiscussionI'm just taking on the task of taking a camping trip to the Catskill Mountain range. I'm planning on camping out for 5 nights. From what I have been looking at on maps, to me the best route is to go through Denning and park my truck north east of town at the end of Denning Rd. Was wondering what special equipment if any, that would best suit me for that terrain/area. Does this sound like a good spot to really experiance the Catskill Mountains??? And correct me if I'm wrong-----> Backcountry Camping- Backcountry camping is allowed on Forest Preserve lands in the Adirondacks and Catskills as well as State Forest lands outside the Preserve. Camping is prohibited on Unique Areas, Wildlife Management Areas and a few other categories of state land. Hiking is generally permitted anywhere on State lands, however, special restrictions apply to both mountain biking and horseback riding." http://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/7872.html Looking forward to any insite any of you guys/gals might have to help out on having a well planned trip. Thanks for your time!
I currently have a Humvee Assault Pack. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004SI0Z50/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_1?pf_rd_p=486539851&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B004SI0Z9G&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=12JHPGM88XE321DQQTSA I received it as a gift, so I'm not complaining about it at all. It's a great backpack and can handle anything I throw at it. It's just not the right backpack for hiking. I need a top loading backpack that I can put my compression sack Hammock in, hang my compression sack sleeping back from the bottom of and hike with.Right now, I have to hang a lot of things off of the ALICE straps on the back, and it's fairly awkward. Does anyone have any suggestions for a camping backpack? Also keep in mind that I don't want to break the bank on this. Thanks!
