Boondocker's website

Motorhome magazine has a small article in the August 2012 issue about a new website called boondockerswelcome.com, an online resource for boondockers to find and offer boondocking or overnight sites to other members. For now membership is free, according the site, members who offer a boondocking spot will never pay a membership fee.
This site looks like it may have potential for those looking for safe and reliable boondocking sites.

If something of value is offered for free, a large portion of the takers will not be the type of person I'd associate with.

IMHO, those offering the space put themselves in harms way, and if they have children, they are fools.

I would rather be at their home if something happen to my kid than at a CG were there are 50 sites. I won't have far to look to see who did it and were they live.

Your kidding aren't you Ed?

If not:
Thank you very much. I'll let the kids know what kind of father they've been living with. I'll also let my passing thru/overnighting friends know we can't do this anymore. Take those threatening RVs to WalMart. Almost twenty years and we've had no problems. Suppose I should check every car coming down the road?

I've belonged since the beginning. No one knows exactly where you are until you 'screen' them and let them know they're welcome (or not).

A superb idea, and I'll have an occasional spot myself. I didn't realize when I put the concrete pad in next to the garage that the water, power and sewer cleanout were in a perfect spot for an RV. It would be a waste to not use, and is in a residential area next to 800 acres of wild woods and close to downtown Portland, Oregon.

As for undesireables, I'd kind of enjoy Chevy Chase's brother-in-law for a bit. It's not as if anyone is moving in with me, and if they're boondockers they've learned how to leave a light footprint.

I've been a long-distance thru-hiker, and there are "trail angels" along the way who will do anything from leave water out in dry areas to have a place to take a shower and sleep. Very nice people, always, and they have the opportunity to meet a lot of people they wouldn't otherwise.

And there are always slobs, who will try to take advantage of any situation. Very clever, articulate, scheming slobs. Well, I have a good friend who drives a tow truck, where would you like to go?
