Sharing information and helping others out is a defining characteristic of the RV industry. Whether you’re buying an RV, selling your RV or looking for somewhere to take your RV…RVers tend to be helpful. RVers everywhere want to help others learn to love and enjoy the RVing lifestyle. RV lovers from newbie to veteran to travel addict find ways to maximize comfort and enjoyment using the many tools, accessories and opportunities of travel by RV. RVs come in many different types and sizes. Some find the smallest RVs too cramped, while others find the larger RVs too cumbersome. Most RVers will benefit from making an RV trip before actually buying. Larger Class A RVs offer luxury, spacious floor plans and plenty of storage space. Smaller RVs allow travelers to stay at more “out of the way” RV campgrounds and RV camping sites.
RV travelers who are really looking to get away from the crowd often prefer boondocking. Boondocking is for those who want to see what others miss. Some sites will be peaceful and quiet and solitary while others will offer the opportunity to explore the more remote areas. Experienced RV boondockers recommend frequenting any number of popular forums and/or websites that are dedicated exclusively to this style of camping. They provide boondocking RVers with the information they need to enjoy and discover the most remote and amazing RV campsites. Diligent searching can result in fantastic adventures and amazing sights and sounds that will generate unique travel memories. The trick is to take advantage of every tool available without becoming a complete RV boondocking research addict. Spending every minute online researching how to boondock and where to find the best remote RV sites can really cut into the time that is available for actual RV boondocking.
Think of it as another hobby from the long list of those that accent the RV lifestyle so well: geocaching, rock climbing, metal detection, hiking, photography, etc. Boondocking is a normal, healthy hobby. There’s nothing wrong with choosing it as the means of adding more enjoyment to what is already a full and happy RV lifestyle. Spending some time planning (and enjoying the planning process nearly as much as actually following through on the plans) is a great way to assure your adventure to be a success. Individuals who find themselves in this situation should probably consider looking into groups dedicated to the hobby, like Boondockers’ Anonymous (BA). This particular group is dedicated to boondocking aficionados. Members share all kinds of information that they have each gleaned from their online researching and personal experiences. It increases the amount of information prospective boondockers have at their disposal, while decreasing the amount of time they have to dedicate to gather up the info and go through it in preparation for a great trip.
Everyone has his or her own obsessions, loves and hobbies. Some are obsessed with social media. Others are obsessed with bar hopping. Some can’t stop playing Words With Friends on their smart phones. It doesn’t matter what your hobby is as long as individuals are able to successfully incorporate their hobbies into their life without disrupting any of the important areas like work, family and health. Boondocking is no different. Different people enjoy different things. No one should selfishly expect all others around them to enjoy exactly what they themselves find irresistible.
Researching new RV campgrounds that are great for boondocking? It’s definitely a hobby that some may not find as enjoyable as others, but it can also be a great time for others. Enjoying the research aspect of boondocking will actually greatly increase the RVer’s ability to succeed in their chosen hobby, as many great boondocking RV campsites aren’t visible to the eye from the road. Unless drivers know where they are, the RV will fly right by and never know what’s been missed. Spending time exploring online can result in the discovery of some great “off the beaten track” sites and info that will take the boondocking hobby to the next level. Check out these recommended resources online and off line:
Check out a few resources and supportive sites until you find your favorites, then frequent them often. You never know when you’ll stumble across a new member or a new post that leads you to a site that you’ve never been to before.
Boondocking is an excellent choice for an RVer’s hobby. Do it alone. Do it with friends or loved ones. Do it often.
