In our latest episode, we discuss boondocking and free camping tips. Boondocking is camping that is self-contained and off-grid. You might also hear it called dispersed, primitive, wild, or dry camping. It all means the same thing – not connected to commercial power, water, or sewer.

We have spent 85 nights boondocking. That’s 85 FREE nights! We’ve spent roughly 44 days boondocking since we installed our solar array three months ago.
