The Boondockers Welcome team got together last week at the RVillage "Spirit of the Road" Rally at the beautiful Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida. We had such an amazing time! For those of you who missed it, here's the summary.
“Year in review” posts seem appropriate for the end of December, but it’s not just the end of a year - it’s the end of a decade! And Boondockers Welcome has existed in some form - even if just in our dreams - since 2010 (or even a little earlier). So, for posterity’s sake, here is a timeline of Boondockers Welcome and how it’s changed over the decade.
