Just a few words to help you get to know the RV Boondocking authors
This pair of RV Boondocking westerners have been married for 27 years. 27 looooong, looooong years. I just can’t get her to throw me out!
Truth is, without her and my daughter this life would be a pretty miserable thing. Even if I could go RV Boondocking and dry camping!
A Bead store we own in Colorado keeps the wolf from the door. I frequently joke that “give me the tools and materials and I can make anything……….except money!” Heidi though, with her store, is a pretty fair hand at keeping us from financial ruin as well as out on the road RV Boondocking!
My passion has always been dry camping deep into far country, preferably in our fifth wheel or an RV of some sort. Besides my wife and kid, there is just nothing finer than sunrise in a Boondock camp in really empty country. The silence just soaks into your soul.
Heidi has dual passions. First her Beading and secondly, the last couple years, training our Australian Shepherd dogs and herself to do Agility.
As you can see, we personally prefer a little more moderately sized rig. I don’t begrudge anyone their big rigs though. Those 45’ motorhomes and 40’ Fifth Wheels with their MDT and HD trucks are sure enough sweet rigs. They just simply won’t fit back into most of the places we like to go! Heck, there are plenty of places we can’t drag our rig! That’s what feet and horses are for!
A body needs to be a little careful though. Being a little too rigid when it comes to saving money is sometimes a false economy. A fact proven by the screw ups the engineers have made, trying to save a few dollars, when they built the “design flaws” in the first place! On occasion a fella just needs to spend a few dollars doing his RV upgrades to get the best value.
We have taken many a long extended trip, staying mostly back in the bush, pretty near as far back as we could push or drag the rig. Now, we are getting ready to step off on our new adventure. Starting some time this summer (’06) we are leaving for a year or two, RVing and Boondocking Fulltime! The only thing holding up the works is getting our house sold. As soon as that’s accomplished, we are outa’ here!
It’s our thought at this point to leave the RV Boondocking adventure sort of open ended. Some time, down the road, we figure to have three ways we can choose to go.
