We admit, our very first boondocking debacle absolutely sucked! We were so unprepared and inexperienced that we failed miserably! Since, we’ve learned, practiced, and mastered it (and still learning!). Now, we seriously can’t think of any reason why we need to go to a park or campground especially now that we’re more mobile in our 24′ Winnebago View. Read why we enjoy boondocking in our RV!
Since the Boondocking Bug bit us in January 2017, we’ve grown to love the lifestyle more and more. There’s nothing like it; setting up our RV in the middle of the Arizona desert amongst the prickly giants or in front of the red dirt canyons and mountains as the backdrop.
In the past year, we’ve absolutely fallen in love with the boondocking concept and off-the-grid parking. Nothing beats parking out in the middle of BLM areas, desert, mountains, lakes, and even farms not having to rely on a power pedestal for our electrical power.
There’s lots to be said for being ‘totally self contained’ and truly meaning it!
In the past few weeks, we’ve connected with Battle Born Batteries to form a partnership through a social media collaboration. We are excited to take on this relationship with this amazing company. We will be utilizing our blog and social media venues to share our experiences and feedback to not only, Battle Born Batteries but also nomadic and boondocking RVers, Campers and the boating community who are seeking greater energy storage options.
The whole point of RV boondocking is to camp in quiet, remote places whether it’s on BLM land, on the beach, on a farm or in someone’s driveway. However, that comes with a price. Six months into our newfound boondocking enjoyment, we decided to upgrade our fifth wheel with solar panels and an efficient energy management system.
Whether you’re a full-time RVer like ourselves, or a weekend camper, van camper, automobile traveler or even a boater, you’ll want to take some tech toys with you so you can be plugged in. However, if you’re like us, once you go off the grid, you’ll need to rethink your electronic peripherals because not all can work without being plugged in to a 120 volt outlet.
