[QUOTE=Gringo;1068995][QUOTE=Airxtream;1068986]My wife and I lived on a sail boat, often in remote out of the way anchorages, for 2 years in Mexico and elseware. We never heard anyone call it the "boondocks" or "boondocking."

Maybe you were gunkholing instead?
Gunkholing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


I did that a lot when I was growing up. Actually, I still am, growing up that is. There is not much gunkholing in Colorado. Although some of our lakes are kind of gunky.

Puget Sound (where I started growing up), and northward is a great place to gunkhole and boondock.

Rockdocking always struck me as a bit arrogant. Its like, "My camping experience is so much more pure than yours that I had to invent a new word just to symbolize how much better it is." My vote goes with just camping.

On the other hand, boondocks means something. Plenty of boondocks around here.

Besides, I thought Freestyling was when you drove around in the country looking for junk/antiques to buy.

If Rockdocking is too highfalutin for you then how about boonholing or gunkdocking.

Those sound down to earth.

Yeah, all good.

I'll have to admit, everybody's camping experience is more pure than mine anyway.

Somebody on these forums said they never use their toilet. They just go in the surrounding area. Anyone want to invent a term for that?

Not me.

I like that.

For instance:

This weekend we're going boonypooping in the mountains.

There is a song about that.

"She'll be boonypoopin' 'round the mountain"

And sometimes, it's just wizzdocking behind the sagebrush.

I was boonypoopin' and whizzdockin' behind the ole sage brush,
When I saw a snake in the grass coming in such a rush.
I said to the snake, "While you're rushing in the grass,
Please, as you go by, don't bite me in the ass."

OK, put that to music.

Ken

Never mind,

I just figured out it will work fine as a new verse for "Turkey in the Straw".

Should I copyright it before it goes viral?

Whatever you call it, Airstreams should never be taken off road. They are simply to fragile. In fact, its best to never take them off paved roads for any reason......

I believe I have a common law copyright on the terms. I'll share the proceeds from the song 50/50.

Once we got a MH, never liked the term camping, when you have a microwave, satellite, toilet, heat and a/c how can you relate it to camping. Gunkholing we did when sailing and power boating, referring to the anchorages that didn't provide anything but a safe place to anchor. Using that parking safely can happen at Walmart or in the wilderness, so to me boondocking would be setting up without connections to utilities or paying somebody for the right to park, hopefully with a good view or quiet wilderness serenity, not a parking lot.
