Having spent most my life camping (tent) I see it this way.
1. Staying in a RV at a location that includes water and electrical hookups is called RVing.
2. Staying at a developed campground with numbered campsites that has a community water supply and vaults or flush toilets is called camping.
3. Then there's backpacking, no luxuries and sore feet.
4. I supposes RV boondocking would be staying in a location without easy access to sanitized water/electricity and without numbered campsites. Generally in remote places potentially infested with zombies. Since Walmart and Cracker Barrel both have easy access to water (bottles) not boondocking.

Thats my two bits which is worth nothing.

That makes no sense. Everybody knows zombies are walking dead people who eat live people's brains— AKA "long pig on the hoof"— and so will be found where there are (or used to be) lots of people, not in remote areas.

Check out the CDC's Zombie Preparedness website…

I'm glad this was brought up, because I've been curious about something. I've seen ladders on a lot of SOB trailers, which you'd obvious need when the zombies come around. What are other Airstream folks planning to do?

Hole up inside my Airstream with the doors locked, with my "Walking Dead" DVD collection, along with season 1 of "iZombie" and downloaded episodes of "Ash vs. Evil Dead" of course!

Side note, in episode 1 of "Ash vs. Evil Dead," Ash lives in an Airstream, though it comes through the episode somewhat worse for wear. Most of the damage to the trailer is done by Ash and his allies while defending themselves, not so much by the evil dead. There's a lesson to be learned there— do NOT use a chainsaw inside your Airstream!

Interesting how so many folks have such different opinions on what "boondocking" is.
I started googling the subject and found similar opinions on various RV forums.
It seems we humans see things as we want to, or what ever suits our particular point of view. Maybe not what they are in reality.
So I broke down the word to boondocks, which does have a definition.

Merriam-Webster : defines "boondocks", 1. rough country filled with dense brush 2. a rural area : sticks

Oxfords : Definition, 1. Rough, remote, or isolated country:

So do Walmarts, truck stops or RV parks or even some campgrounds fit these descriptions? I would have to say, no.

So to be "boondocking" one would have to be in the "boondocks".
Once again another opinion, the best description for me would be:
Dispersed, Dry Camping, Self-Sufficient in a remote or isolated, ruff country.

So if the boondocks are also the sticks, does that mean boondocking can also be called "sticking"?
