Pirate Gold of Adak Island is a compelling new series that follows a team of committed treasure hunters on the remote, eerie island of Adak, in Alaska. In 1892 Russian pirate Gregory Dwargstof buried over $300 million worth of gold coins in 150 tin cans throughout the island, but only two have ever been found. To help, the mayor of the dwindling town of Adak has assembled a team of professionals, including geographers, technologists and equipment specialists, to try and find the remaining booty.
The team enlists the help of a local expert in the field of unexploded ordnance. But navigating the dangerous and unpredictable island isn't easy. As the crew struggles to make progress, they'll have to contend with a variety of obstacles including a treacherous sea and an island full of live munitions.
While the ADAK Trailer may look military-inspired, especially when painted in available olive drab, it's designed for comfort and adventure. Its panels are reinforced with honeycomb fiber and sit on an aluminum I-beam frame, and the cabinets are bonded together so that any shake or rattle won't damage the internal layout. Additionally, the use of a torsion bar system means that there are no hanging components below that can snag on rocks and other obstacles.
The group behind the ADAK trailers wanted a better way to embrace their outdoor pursuits without giving up on modern comforts. After testing everything from tents to pickup campers and motorhomes, they landed on a design that combines ride-anywhere grit with comfortable, spacious living. We had a chance to check out a prototype at Overland Expo 2014 and can't wait for it to hit the market.
