Thanks for the good info! I'm getting a pretty good idea of what can be done to make my stay longer (or shorter) while in the woods, plus some great ideas that I didn't know could be done.
My place is a work in progress, I'm hoping to eventually get power, a well, and septic tank but for now its just a place in the country, lol
After I get out there and boondock some (learn all the in's and outs), I may not want to do much more to the place, lol

I am in the same situation but my boondocking land is in the north. I pee in the woods but DW does not. I have 50 amp electric plus cable/wifi. No water, no sewage. I am lucky because water is easy to get from springs or a city park. Sewage we call a pumpout company for $50 they pump out the trailer plus our 35 gallon sewage tote. We pumpout once a month. The sewage tote does not work that well. The original thought was I could somehow get it into the truck bed and take it to the dump station at the local state park. But as I kinda figured...it was way too heavy. The fix is either stick with the pumpout company or get a merceator pump. If you get 75 gallon of fresh water, can dump the gray, and have at least a 40 gallon black water, the man pees behind a tree you can Boondock 10 to 14 days. If you can get more water, like carry some with you can go longer. In my situation the black tank is my biggest concern and will probably be yours. Get a RV with a large black tank. Side note - most travel fuel stops have dump stations, like Loves travel stop or if there is a state park close.
