Boondocking in Caribou National Forest, Idaho

What is boondocking? There are many words that define boondocking: dry camping, free camping, camping without hookups. It’s freedom!

From June of 2009 to May 2011 I practiced the freedom of boondocking. It was the time of my life. This is not to say it was all fun. Believe me, living in a converted minivan camper, in the winter, without heat, was not fun. But it was a challenge I’m thankful I experienced.

The first week of each month I’ll post an article about my experiences, info & links, challenges and I’ll address your questions.

Leave a comment or email me:

  • If you have tips or links you’d like to share
  • If you’ve boondocked and would like to share your story with a guest post.
  • If you’d like me to answer a question or address a topic about boondocking in the next post


The Boondocking Life: Preparation

  1. We had a different take on boondocks when we were kids. There used to be this place not far from our house where we would ride our bikes and it was full of dirt hills to jump and trails to ride on. It became known as the “boondocks” to us. It was our getaway place to have fun and ride our bikes together.

    • Thanks, I’ve shared your site, I wish I had found it back when I was on the road. I’ve saved you site and will be adding it to my links section under boondocking. Good to meet another adventurer

Been there? Done that? Wanna go there? Tell me about it!
