Years ago, on our first RV trip, we found ourselves boondocking on BLM land in Arizona in a place that fits the description, “the middle of nowhere”. The story of what happened there is one I’ve often repeated since – whenever we’re asked if we've feared for our safety or had any bad experiences when camped so far from civilization.

A few years ago, while visiting one of my 80 first cousins in Holland, I found out her husband had just returned from a two-week RV trip in Canada with his adult son. With so many cousins, we often have overseas relatives come to Ontario to visit, but their trip had a different purpose. They wanted a unique father-son adventure.
In search of the perfect stocking-stuffer for the RVer in your life? Or maybe a gift to give your host after a stay? Here's a quick list of some great gifts to finish up your holiday shopping.
If you're concerned or hesitant to join as a host or to become a guest, we hope a bit of knowledge will help.
Hosting Boondockers Welcome members is an amazing experience almost every time, but there are always ways to improve the experience for both guests and hosts. We'd like to thank two host members for allowing us to share their tips for ensuring guests feel welcome, and enjoy their stay.
Thank you to SmokinSoleResort, who sent us this story and the photos to go with it.
As you read it, I'd like to draw your attention to this line: "It's different each time you host. Some guests like to hang out with the hosts for part of the time while others just park and say thank you and then go do their own thing."
(We wouldn't want guests to expect this level of hospitality from every host or, in fact, from this host on every occasion).
With more demand than supply, campsite reservations are becoming harder to land than ever. We need creative solutions so sometimes we just have to think outside the box.
Most RVers would not give much thought to equipping their rig for boondocking unless they plan to actually do it - go boondocking that is - in the traditional sense of camping out “in the boonies” with no services for days or weeks at a time. But there are many added advantages to being boondocking-ready!
