camped in all types of rigs, tents are our favorite. both from michigan, have family all over country. will be using an Aliner camper pulled by a honda ridgeline for full timing. our goal is Alaska the first summer, then up and down the western states following the weather for as long as our health allows (many years we hope). we have succeeded in these goals in the last nearly two years with priceless memories and have now upgraded our rig for many more boon docking memories with a little more comfort.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Interested in Arizona and New Mexico in winter. Washington and Oregon in summer. After nearly two years of full-timing we love it more than we ever imagined. Loved the Aliner Expedition we started out in, but are thrilled with our new 2016 Arctic Fox 25Y!! Our two favorite spots so far are KOFA BLM in Arizona; Deming New Mexico area; and Hell's Canyon, Imnaha River corridor in Oregon.
