Overlanding is not a new camping concept. People have been overlanding even before the inception of the covered wagon. Today, the overlanding lifestyle combines off-roading, outdoor recreation and off grid camping in some of the most rugged terrains. But, not everyone nor is every vehicle capable of overlanding. Are you?
There’s a fallacy amongst some RVers that boondocking costs nothing. Well, I’m here to say that there is no such thing as FREE CAMPING. There are costs associated with camping off grid but nobody will admit or be truthful about them. From equipment for your RV, basic survival supplies to certain fees, many RVers don’t think about or even consider them when planning their budget.
Who really wants to be tied up inside their RV cooking while everyone else is outside enjoying the outdoors? That’s why you need an outdoor camp kitchen setup so you can be a part of the action too!
Unless your RV is equipped with solar panels, ample batteries with necessary components to provide electricity to your camper, you’ll need to look into portable generators to recharge your RV batteries. But, which generator will power your RV or camper?
The best season to camp is Fall because the outside temperatures are perfect for campfires and campfire cooking! It’s also the perfect time of the year to bring out the fire pit and cook up your favorite Fall camping recipes. But these camping meals and campfire treats are different!
There’s nothing more euphoric than the smell of bacon and eggs frying in a cast iron pan over a campfire on a cool, crisp Autumn morning. Watching pancakes being poured onto the griddle completes the perfect Norman Rockwell camping scene. But you’re going to need some campfire cooking gear and outdoor grilling tools.
Knowing how to conserve water while you’re boondocking with your RV will enable you to stay off the grid longer. Once you monitoring your water usage, you won’t have to go to campgrounds or find potable water source as often.
