I'm in the process of purchasing a hard-sided pop-up and want to boondock south starting in January. Being totally new to all of this I'm up for any information or helpful hints. Like how do I find free or real cheap places to park and can I stay in those places for a while. I'm not too worried about television I just want to be able to have my cell phone to keep in touch with my two oldest children as one will be with me. My 18 year old races bmx and wants to also be able to travel to the national races they have are there places to park in every state down south? I don't even know much about the pop-up yet. I don't want to go to campgrounds with high fees. What does everyone do about getting their mail? Or jobs for extra money is that even possible?

If you go southwest, you can camp on most BLM land for 14 days. Get yourself a map that shows who owns what for whatever state you are going to.
Just about everything has been covered in this forum. If you have a particular question, do a search for it under "find".
Good luck.

You can move after 14 days in one place on BLM land 25 miles away on BLM land and stay 14 days there. You can stay in 'dispersed camping areas' in the National Forest for 14 days then you have to move to another National Forest. You can't keep doing this continously or the National Forest people will claim you are HABITATING on the NF land. However, you don't really have to worry about that until they come up to your unit and say something to you.

I would mix some time spent in other areas than public land, like an RV resort a town park or truck stop or....? It is up to you to be inventive. I have spots all over the southwest where I can stay for free.
