Boondocking (camping in the boonies)

If you’re like me, you like to just throw down a tent wherever the fancy strikes you, and camp your butt off.  Sometimes you don’t want to deal with the hassle of going to a campground, sometimes you don’t want to deal with the COST of going to a campground (I almost choked when I saw one campground near Santa Barbara, CA listed as having spots for *$70* each…in a campground??)…and sometimes you just want to get away from it all.

Now, thanks to Boondocking, you don’t have to search and search for a place to do it.  Grab a GPS and go!  Also check out for more lists of campsites that you might not need a GPS to get to.
