Campgrounds and parks are starting to open up and we realize that recreational travel is beginning in some areas. The health and safety of our members is, and always will be, our top priority especially during the pandemic. As such, we have implemented a few guidelines, for both hosts and guests, to ensure everyone is staying safe yet still having fun and enjoying each other.
I can hardly open Instagram these days without seeing a photo of another vintage trailer restoration or a skoolie conversion in progress. What fun! With this trend obviously growing, we hope this cautionary article might be timely and helpful.
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.
If you're concerned or hesitant to join as a host or to become a guest, we hope a bit of knowledge will help.
It's summertime and boondocking is easy and free - until we need to run the A/C!
Boondocking is camping without hookups. Yet 80% of Boondockers Welcome hosts generously offer electric, water, or both. Let's be sure hosts know how much we travelers appreciate this option!
