About me

Barry and Linda

We have been RVing since our early married life in the 70's. I am a retired General Contractor (wood butcher extraordinaire) and Linda retired from a career in Cosmetology (hairbender). We still have a stix & brix home, but travel extensively throughout the year whenever we want. Thus RV-Anytimers. We will be posting our travels so our family and friends can ride along. view my complete profile.

      Computers and human beings don’t speak the same language. So, to make interaction possible, we rely on graphical user interfaces (GUIs).

But with technology evolving and language recognition and […]

RV Boondocking or Dry Camping – Basics

December 1st, 2014

Tired of living in an established campground? Want to try a different taste?

 

Boondocking, also known as Off the grid, Off the cord, Dry Camping or Wild Camping is simply living in your RV without the use of commercial campgrounds and hook ups (water, electric or sewer). It is a free camping, generally out in the boondocks. For some people, wild camping is the ultimate reason to own an RV. In many areas of the west, you can simply move your RV into the desert, and stay free for up to two weeks. This is the situation on most BLM (Bureau Of Land Management) and national woods grounds. You may not stay more than two weeks if you want to abide by the laws.

In this article, I will answer commonly asked questions on Dry Caming/Boondocking that may come in the mind of readers interested in Boondocking.

 

Is it safe, legal and sanitary?

It is most likely safe, because there is less chance some creeper would drive all the way out to the middle of nowhere looking for unsuspecting campers. It is perfectly legal, as long as you stay in designated dispersed camping areas and believe it or not it’s even encouraged! And, yes, it is sanitary as well. Usually there are little or no camping fees. Many great boondocking locations have good cell and internet data coverage.
