I just found out today that you have to leave ALL NATIONAL FORESTS after 14 days in any one NF for a period of 17 days or you are violating the law against living in a NF.

I had thought that you could stay 14 days in one NF then go to another for 14 days and then another for 14 more days, then you could come back to the original forest; and you could continue to do this as long as you wanted. You are not LIVING in the NF. Also, most people would move on to an RV park or something during part of this time.

Also, the current trend in the NFs in Arizona is to charge a fee for despersed camping close to cities and to limit the stay to only 7 days. In ApacheSitgraves you cannot park along the road next to the Mogollian Rim without a pass. In Sedona and the surronding area you need a pass even to park alongside the road for a few minutes.

In Flagstaff and Yuma you cannot park overnight. The whole area north of Flagstaff is off limits to any kind of parking or camping.

It's a good thing you have so much BLM & Trust land out there. I camped in the NF by Prescott one night this spring and couldn't find a suitable place for a 35' class A that had Sprint network coverage, which I need to have. I have now switched to Verizon but that isn't the only problem I had up there. I recall that I had to drive miles just to find a place to turn my rig around up there.

It seems starting in 2000 the NFs have gone down hill as far as boondocking is concerned; just when Bush came on the scene.

Hopefully our next president will be different.

I voted for Bush but the evidence seems to be mounting against him.

Naw, It cant be because of Bush. The NF bureaucracy can't move that fast. Maybe something to do with Nixon

Yup, pretty soon they will protest against all campers. I am sure we are causing some field mouse anxiety.

Just tell the liberals you are homeless camping and they will protest for you and demand power water sewer and cable.

"Camping longer than 14 consecutive days is generally not allowed. At Corps of Engineers campsites only, camping at one or more campsites at any one water resource project (lake) for a period longer than 14 days during any 30-consecutive day period is prohibited."

If I remember corrctly (and I probably don't). I think that you can stay for 14 consecutive days, move to another campground and stay for another 14 days in a different NF. I believe the Don Wright book has info on the time frame. My book is in the warehouse right now, but I will try to get David to bring it home tomorrow to look and see.
