Either boondocking or cg is fine as long as we are spending quality time with family and friends away from the mundane environment of house chores and/or work. Every chance we get, we take the trailer out to enjoy the beautiful places around. We are so blessed that this country offers so much in terms of National , State and even County parks that are reasonably priced, safe, and available to all.

If staying in a State Park without hookups on the shores of Admiralty Inlet on Puget Sound is boondocking then that is us (-: 90% of our outings are here. 1.5 hours from home.

I've been living in my rig for 4 years now and have boondocked 90% of the time. I now have 3 solar panels on top with 4 6 volt batteries, enough power to get me through the night. Since I'm full-timing I have TV and computer that I use regularly, if I was just going out for recreational use I would leave those things behind.
I don't like being parked like a sardine.

We traveled for 10 months last year and stayed in 64 campgrounds. Never once boondocked. We had a nice time in every campground, never felt to cramped, enjoyed visiting with other people and it gave us a nice safe place to stay. We have a 5th wheel and maybe if we had a class A we would boondock. Not sure why I feel that way about a class A. So another question to add to this thread is "What do you boondock in?"

Excellent point Tom!!!
I think it's much easier to get off the beaten path when you don't have to rely on anything else or anyone else. A MH makes boondocking a smidge easier rhan a TT or FW. But man is it nice to be out and away from it all in your own little slice of heaven if only just for those brief two week periods and then to move on to another slice of heaven. I can't wait to retire in 30 years and go full time!!!

Have pretty much only ever boondocked (can only think of one time that we had hook ups) and thats what we prefer as we are off roaders. Its nice to find a nice secluded spot to call your home for the weekend or a week.

Was your pic by any chance taken at Potholes Reservoir in Washington State? Sure does look like the WDFW access area there...

Several posts mention CG's as "nice, safe places". Being an ex-cop, I think that's a valid consideration. I do tend to think in terms of situational awareness and worst case scenarios, where people are concerned.

So, for you folks who are truly out in the boondocks in splendid isolation, are you packing heat? Yeah, there are a lot of considerations - guns are evil, illegal in places, there might be an AD, kids could get hold of it, you might get mad or drunk and shoot the wrong person (including yourself), whatever. But the nitty-gritty is, when you're out there beyond 9-11 coverage, are you good to go if Mad Max shows up?

Just curious what most of you are doing, really....

For me at least rule number one is to never ever be without a gun. I ALWAYS carry a pocket pistol.
