BOONDOCKING

From day one, we've boondocked in our bus Ellie. We've stayed at a few campgrounds over the years, and Harvest Hosts really comes through when we need them. However, our preferred method of travelling full time is boondocking. For the newbies, that's simply being one with nature; no hookups, no neighbors, and complete freedom.

One of our favorite things about boondocking is exploring the cities we stop in. If we're lucky we have a car in tow, but most of the time we use our motorcycle to get around. We've camped at Flying J's, Pilots, BLM (which stands for Bureau of Land Management - basically government land that you can stay on for free for up to two weeks). Staying true to the off-grid lifestyle, our solar powered bus can handle any stops we decide to make along our travels (most of the time).
