If you are a boondocker, there is something to glean, even from a newbie. If you are not a boondocker, you may be curious because you have heard whispers around the campfire. Or have you not heard about boondocking yet?
What is boondocking? That depends on who you are. You might be a boondocker who does it just for the freedom of taking your RV into the middle of nowhere and camping alone with nothing but the wilderness. Maybe you are a full-time RVer looking to keep your monthly camping cost as low as possible – so free or nearly free camping as a boondocker is the answer. You may use your RV for more freedom, flexibility, and privacy. You might be all these types of boondocking RVers.
My spouse and I had boondocked a couple of times on family land, narrow plots generously offered up to us. I think that is a great way to get started because you can test the limits of your systems and have family as backup in case of the unexpected. To branch out, we had friends offer for us to join them in boondocking and that is a great second step for easing into the adventures.
