Okay, okay...I have split this thread back apart so as not to loose the specific intent of Mello Mike. Although, I feel the original thread had some very pertinant posts as well.

Cause we can

We like it, have gone three times in the last two months, twice to the Adirondacks and once up to my Father In laws farm, the pictures, to get away from it all. Much more private and usually quiter...plus with the Solar Panels, and our two onboard batteries, and the luxury of the 34', Life's great!

Missing a post? I goofed.

While refiling posts from this thread that belonged in the earlier thread on the same subject (Boondocking/Campgrounds - what's your preferance?), I goofed and sent the older thread into cyber oblivion. It's gone - although I'm not sure where.... and I aplogize (hanging head now).

If you posted to that thread, feel free to repost here - it was an interesting subject.

I love boondocking and the best part is being able to camp where you want. To me its the freedom from being attached. Remote independance.

Pictures to follow.

Uh confusion...is this that thread or is that thread this thread are they the same then split then the same again or were they both lost and only one found followed by a split then a merge?

<---- someone ate his silly flakes...again

What if I add to the confusion by asking: What size trailer do you love to Boondock in? Is it better in a smaller trailer or a larger trailer?

Close to my favorite swimming hole

Boondocking allows me to access my favorite swimming hole. It is peaceful and refreshing. I have the place all to myself.

Check out this site to find a nice spot for yourself. Add any that you want to see listed.

We like to camp in National Forest, State Forest, and National Park campgrounds. Most of these have no hookups... so I assume they qualify as boondocking. The scenery is incredible, the campgrounds are usually wooded/shaded, it is quiet, the sites are large, and it just feels like camping (comfortable camping).

We do not like developed campgrounds because they often look awful, frequently have minimal shade, are noisy, crowded, and feel like a mobile home park. I can't imagine having one of those $250,000+ motorhomes parked in a crummy KOA! I'd rather stay home.

Many Forest Service and State/National Park campgrounds have a length limit, often 25-30 feet. Our 25 foot Safari is a perfect size. Park, unhitch, and explore.

pst....the picture is going to sell better on eBay if you tell everyone that the "Loch Ness Monster" took the picture. Don't worry. The truth of your daughter taking is safe with me. No one will be the wiser.

Remember....Nessy took it.

The best thing about boondocking

is the neighborhood. Where I am, does not define who I am. Friends met on the road often give you the opportunity to travel in a different direction.
