This is the area of Pike national forest where I was looking for Boondocking spots
I had planned on going out to my property today but I changed my mind and went looking for some Boondocking spots instead. I always feel better when I've got a backup plan as to where I'm going to stay. And when it comes to Boondocking my plan always involves checking out spots in my truck first.
This Boondocking spot is only 100 yards off a paved road
I checked out some spots that are only a few miles down the road from where I'm staying now. There in the national forest so they will have a two-week stay limit. But that's okay by me because I'm usually ready to move by then anyway.
This site is a quarter-mile from a paved road but too shady for me
I drove down two dirt roads that were only about a mile apart and only had to go maybe a quarter of a mile off the pavement to find some well used areas. The hardest part for me is finding well used areas that are out in the sun. Most folks want to be under the trees but I need a little meadow to keep my solar panels happy.
I saw 3 other RVers Boondocking in the area where I looked and that's usually a good sign that Boondocking is okay, fire rings are another sign that Boondocking is allowed in the area.
I found a couple of spots that look just right for me, so I guess I know where I will be next week when I leave 11 mile state Park.
