I own an RV. I have to go where the sign says Campers and Trucks should go so that makes me a camper.
RVing is possibly the best term. Sometimes I only see the sign that says RVs and Trucks. That makes me an RVer.
You must guessed it. Its the direction signs at the rest areas on the highways. Where we can't boondock for the night but truckers can.

I suppose one could say real camping is what we were doing 48 years ago as an 11B4PR: no tent, no poncho and Indigenous Rations for 2 to 6 days: I much prefer our 34' fifth wheel. We did get Helio rides in and out

Camping today is a campfire, sitting under the stars enjoying the outdoors and most of all cable tv, wifi, and air conditioning.

Turning GREEN. The water was too big for fishing while we were there, but I would love to do it again at lower flows. It was on the outside edge of our rafting adventure desires, and we had swimmers every day. It should be world class fishing if the conditions are right. Pictures are always welcomed.

I am offended, and I'm pretty sure my civil rights have been violated, too!

I consider boondocking to mean spending at least an overnight without hookups, i.e. self-contained.


In my opinion boondocking can be usually divided into urban or rural.


Yes Monacoach, I would like a full set of your signs, but I also want a tailgating sign, is that available?

I consider this kind of camping 'real' boondocking. Off the grid (generally), remote areas with no hookups. Staying in a Wal Mart parking lot just isn't the same thing.
Anybody else feel this way?

I'm with you.
I refer to Walmart/truck stop/rest area stops as "overnighting" staying in campgrouds and RV parks "camping" and staying off the grid in remote areas with no hookups as "dry camping", (aka: "boondocking").

I'm not worried about offending people, in fact my wife says it is one of my few highly developed skills.

Don't you offer a low cost alternative sign made in China with possibly harmful paints? (see, I did it again).
