If you
(1) have any hookups
(2) own the land, or
(3) are in the middle of civilization (pizza delivery range),

its not boondocking.

#2 is important, because on your own land you have the option of stockpiling supplies you can't carry in one trip in your RV. You're also tied to that spot through ownership, and essentially using your RV as a primitive cabin.

Not wrong with it. People just get fixated on labels.

Cwsqbm - I do stock pile firewood.

And I am not within pizza delivery but can get pizza with a 15 minute drive one way.

3G coverage until I have the cable and wifi turned back on.

I am out with coyote and black bear so I have to burn all scrap food and pizza boxes. DW and I are just like Duo Survivors. (Except we have campfires to cook mountain pies).

We use the term boondocking for no hookups and free no matter where it is. Wally world or BLM land. Dry camping would be the same thing although that can be with a fee at a no hookup campground.

We're not purists with the term. We use it in our blog. Helps non RVers understand without describing the nuances.

I like the pizza delivery rule though 8-)

Call it boondocking, dry camping, camping with minimal hookups, or whatever you like, you still can learn things from this site and I bet you have some insights to share.

Dealing with conservation and heat and electric generation (solar, generator, catalytic heater etc) is the same where ever you are if you have no hookups. Weather is the main difference. warm and sunny is always best of course. We're going to do a lot of BLM out in the southwest next winter. This year we're mostly doing OWL (outter Walmart Lot) 8-) except when we hit one of our membership campgrounds. We have found that Walmart can be quieter than a campground sometimes. Going to shop there anyway so it's kind of a no brainer for single night stays (occasionally 2 nights)

Wallydocking is another thing altogether. That's why there's a name for it!

+1. I "dry camp" far more than I "boondock".

I also frequent a site that deals with expedition travel - driving through multiple third-world countries, where boondocking is the only option. Its not something I want to do, but there's tons of good information that applies to any form of camping.

Done Walmart at least 30 nights over the last year.... never heard that term before on any site or forum. Nice to add to the vocabulary of "moochdocking"

Wallydocking. Hmmm

Barreldocking
Bed Bath and Booning
BestBoon
AppleBoons
TGI Boondays

Lots of places where you can be right smack dab in the middle of a great big empty at night, without a fire ring.
