Boondocking Sites

Whenever we boondock, we usually take a shot of the trailer in its natural setting.  (From now on, I will try to make sure that we take that shot, and I will add it to this collection.)  Here are the shots, in chronological order.  (This does not include photos taken in designated campgrounds.)

Nice idea for a photo collection, thanks for sharing some of your special places. Sure beats campgrounds...............but don't tell anybody. ;)

How on earth do you find these places and how do you know whether or not the road won't narrow you into a spot that you can't evacuate (turn around) ? Love the night sky shots as usual.

Neil and Yoly, we find the places on Google Earth and with a topo program. Then we scout them with the tow vehicle before pulling the trailer into trouble, just so we don't get stuck without a turnaround. It takes a lot of time and planning, but it is worth it for the privacy and the silence of remote boondocking.

Thanks for the link you gave me. I hope I get to visit these places you camped at especially the dark sky sites.
