Boondocking It

What it is: One dictionary defines boondocks as slang for rough backwoods or bush country. The term boondocking as used by campers (rv or otherwise) most often refers to camping in the boondocks without the use of commercial campgrounds and hookups (water & electricity). For some it might also mean overnighting in a Walmart parking lot. Universally it means FREE, which is always good. It's one of those things that takes a while to get hang of - but when you do, it's surprising how easy it becomes to find a free place to spend the night.
