3. Away from Home (I just know some of your abodes would otherwise qualify as "boondocking"!)
4. No RV park, no matter how sparse
5. Parks and Forest Service camps OK, ditto for similar improved campsites in other countries.
6. Extra points for remoteness
7. Double extra points for revealing nifty and "unknown" boondocking locations
8. Triple extra points for being remote with other Airstreams
9. Tents and campfires always add value...

Have fun and good luck!

Zep
So, it's no limit of pics?

Only one limit! There ought to be an Airstream, Airstream part, Airstream reflection, or group of Airstreamers, or maybe even a photo of the boondocking site that an Airstream could get to. I thought this would go without saying.

Resubmit previous "losers"! Maybe they were winners, but just not in that month.

Ok, I'm in on this one.

This photo was taken during elk hunting season in Oct. of 2006. Location, (Cough . . . now whispering) . . . is near Garden Valley, Idaho.

Had a SOB move in behind me after this picture was taken. The owner was telling my wife, at about 9:00 PM that night, that he knew the location of my ATV and could go get me (he was concerned) - she had to tell him I had my elk down and was on my way out.

Poor guy: he had never harvested an elk in his 15 years of pursuit, and I had one down in lest than 2 hours . . . I had an instant fan.

Saw this trailer parked on up on the hill when camping @ Casini. Couldn't figure out how he go up there, but I'm sure there were no facilities!

One of our favorite campgrounds at Taquamenon Falls Michigan, River Bend Campground, right outside of a little place called Paradise. Last time we were there we had it to ourselves and you could hear the bubbles break on the water. No hookups and no generators allowed. This is one of the reasons we wanted the rear wrap around windows and dinette of the FB.

Second time out

Ok, I'm not in some remote campsite. But hey, we've only had our trailer, our first trailer, for a little over a month and I thought my wife got the essence in this first shot.

And of course the second shot is why we bought the trailer to begin with. To take our two boys on the road! That's a shot at the Chattanooga Aquarium.

That looks like a great location for a rally!

This is my version of the same kind of place. Well, it does have one big tree.

Looks like a great place to watch flying saucers and space aliens!
