Some years ago (he died a few years ago), there was a full time real boondocker (no established campsites) that went by the handle Tioga George. He boondocked throughout California and then migrated down to Mexico (before the drug troubles). Sometimes he would boondock in urban areas as he was passing through and had a scheme for avoiding the police.

Google Tioga George and you will find his website that gives blogs over a ten year period.

As I recall, George did have significant social interaction during his travels. I followed his blog religiously and stopped by once to meet him at a spot on a back street in Newport Beach, Ca.

We traveled full time, 11 months to a short year of only 4 months one year for nearly 17 years.
I am looking for a lady to travel beside, I really enjoy the West and really prefer Boondocking, no crowds, just Nature and all its beauty surrounding us.
I love to ride bicycles and motorcycles, I recently bought an ebike and really enjoy riding it.
I also have a very small 250 cc Kawasaki Super Sherpa, its small enough for me to handle, over my 78 years I have owned some 60 different motorcycles and many RV's from truck campers to 40' motorhomes, I really enjoy the traveling the United States, what a great country we have.
[Mod Edit]
I love the WEST, not crowded and beautiful, but I am open to your ideas as to the traveling you are wanting to do or places you want to see, I am open to see new places, are you?
I currently have a 31' Desert Fox Toyhauler and a F250 Ford Diesel 7.3, supercab, (4door) and will be heading north in a month or two, if your in Yuma and heading north I am in Kingman, maybe we could meet for coffee?
I don't smoke and don't drink, I smoked for years and quit about 30 years ago, never was much of a drinker.
I was in the Navy, I suspect the Asbestos might have caused the lung cancer that I have, but then working in a shop as a kid in a machine shop and that may be the issue but who knows, no one. Enjoy life while you have it.

Good luck Charlie! I think you'll find there are lots of ladies who would love to travel in a nice rig like yours. As we say in the South, they'll be on you like white on rice!

I am younger with a young family. I always wonder if the wife and I will be doing this when the kids are gone and we are old and grey. I then thought when she goes before me, will I still use the MH if we have one? I couldn’t answer it one way or another. I would like to think I could, but the emotional part might be too hard to tame, at least for a while. I wish you the best and hope to see you out there. I like to think I will never give it up either.

The emotional part of me couldn't take continuing to RV in the Phaeton we bought for our retirement travel that was now not going to happen as planned. It was too heartbreaking. So I sold the Phaeton, but downsized to a coach sized just for me alone.

As others have posted, it's only as lonely as you want it to be. I would think boondocking in isolated places could get lonely, but if you have enough to occupy yourself it wouldn't be. I haven't tried that yet.

There is great need for a sarcasm font.
