People ask me about boondocking in our travel trailer. How do you find a location, what do you do, how does it work, etc. We do have a directory of places that allow RV's to boondock, but since the recession, I notice there are a lot more abandoned businesses that make perfect boondock locations.
We were able to find a place just outside of Danville for our first night of vacation. It was quiet and peaceful. We were even able to park a little way away from the road so we didn't hear street sounds.
We have a generator we used to provide air conditioning, but otherwise we had everything we needed contained in the trailer.
Boondocking isn't really a vacation destination, but if you are trying to make distance and all you need is a place to lay your head for a few hours; boondocking can be just the ticket to keeping the trip on schedule.
