Boondocking A.K.A. dry-camping
I noticed while scouting out future campsites to move to in the west, there are a lot more dry-camping places, meaning there are no water or electrical hook-ups at the RV sites. They may have a water-station and wastewater dump, but some places won’t even have that. So you have to know in advance and come prepared with a full water supply and empty sewer tanks. These places usually still have water spigots (not always) and pit toilets. You must also have a generator or solar panels (will need both on cloudy days) if you hope to survive with any lights at night or to charge your electronics. The refrigerator can fortunately run on propane gas, which is how it stays cold while in transit between sites. The stove and oven are both gas as well. We bought a good Honda generator and we can recharge the batteries, run all our electronics with the exception of A/C, and we can use our microwave if we keep it under 80% power. We just become much more conservative with water-usage and power. This is how we were able to camp near the Grand Canyon for two whole weeks - the campground was in Kaibab National Forest and we only paid $10/night! The view was so peaceful and many elk wandered by.
Our neighbors had quite a surprise visit - notice that two of the campers are sleeping in a red and a blue hammock, right where the elk decided to walk between! They were sleeping the whole time and didn’t even know they had a visitor until I texted them these photos. A few of us spectators were giggling the whole time taking our photos.
