I asked where we could go in the mean time and she told us to head down the highway to East Thousand trails Road and find a spot to park in and to come back the following Saturday morning. We did that and when we couldn't find accommodations after that second we went back to the Forestry lands and stayed until our booking at Dead Horse Ranch State Park was open. While we were there a man came into the area where we were booked and explained to us we had on 14 days to stay there and then we had to leave to another jurisdiction and stay there for their 14 day maximum and the go to another jurisdiction for a further 14 days. So we used Coconino National Forest, Prescott NF and Sedona NF when we couldn't find RV sites open.

(a Canadian, eh?)

That would be:
"U.S. Forestry lands",
"Coconino U.S. National Forest"
"Prescott U.S. NF"
and
"Sedona U.S. NF"

You're welcome.

BTW Were can I boondock for free courtesy of Canadian taxpayers?

To the best of my knowledge there are plenty of places but not as open and as easily accessed as in the states. Around where I live there are many open camping areas but you have to know where they are. BTW I thought by stating I was in AZ that the NF would succinctly indicate I knew it was US owned when I used the National Forest Moniker.

The Canadian equivalent of BLM and NF land is Crown land, free for Canadians, but about $10/day for non residents

Camping on Crown land

That seems unfair.
But then nobody calls Canada "The Land of the FREE"

The BLM land I've stayed at in Arizona and the National Forest lands in Colorado all limit you to 14 days at a stay. Legally in Az at least you are supposed to move 25 miles but nobody does. Go to another area until tanks are full then go back. Unless something about your rig really grabs their attention-they all look alike.
