Free place to stop for the night.

I was just on another RV Fourm and ran across a thread about offering other in this case, iVR2 members a place to park for the night, rather than paying $50.00, or Wallyworlding it..
The thread has grown so big since 2006 (to be 12 pages) the moderator is going to set up a special section with a form to be filled out if you have a spot to park,how big, whats avail.(water,dump,electricty(20-30 amp).
Sound like a great idea, our members quite often ask if someone knows a place to park just for the night. I know I would rather make a friend than try to park in a rest stop or someplace alone.
What do you think??

I rather Passport America it for less then $20.

Unless the Free spot is within 3 miles of my route and comes with full hook ups and a drive through site. No thanks.

And I never have Wallyworld it.

By utilizing all the available information I have there are not too many places west of the big river ( I did not want to spell out Mississippi) where I am not near a free or almost free campsite. Mostly dry or boondocking but that is great for overnight. I have stumbled upon a few. My maps have red highlights where they are. My maps look like they have the Measles. No I do not do electronic maps. I use the real thing. Some of us seasoned citizens are set in some of our ways.

You can camp free at Camping World and some of the ''spots'' even have 30 amp hook ups and they are free. Great for overniting .....

God bless our troops

Lots of intrest, but I was talking about meeting people and making friends-sure we could stop at any number of places along the way and be alone. I thought travel was to meet people and make friends-I could stay at home and be by myself.
What difference would it make if you boondocked alone or stayed in the backyard of a new friend, talking to them or staying alone and taslking to yourself?

In order to make friends and meet people my suggestion would be to visit a campground. After all, campgrounds specifically cater to us (RV'ers) who profess to LOVE this lifestyle. Where would these mostly family run facilities be without us?
I have found that for the most part cg owners & their employees are a great bunch of friendly people. Not to mention all the potential friendships (& cold guys!) waiting for us if we would only avail ourselves to what these wonderful places have to offer rather than staying in a blacktop parking lot. Never have!! Never will!! jodann
