Our road trip in the campervan last year, it is something R wants to forget. Gone is the conversation that we used to have about becoming grey nomads, although it was always a rather one sided conversation. I was never keen.
I didn't mind campervanning. Our hired campervan was relatively cheap, for good reasons. A lesson in you get what you pay for, I guess. Don't I do a lot of guessing.
I guess these two guys are gay and partners. They have never said so, and no real need to know. They are known as the https://www.youtube.com/user/RVgeeks While we went campervanning, they go Recreational Vehicleing...., ok, that doesn't work well.....RV'ing. Still ugly.
I have watched many of their videos, post our RV'ing. I like the guys and they have heaps of useful information in their videos, as well as a good bit about when they visited Australia.
I have a vague memory (I have lots of vague memories) of a song that was either titled Down in the Boondocks, or had a line in the song like that. Australians of my vintage probably have a good idea of what the boondocks are. An undesirable place? Out of the way? A place where there is nothing? Correct me if I am wrong, as always. Maybe similar to our outback?
But if you are talking about boondocking in an RV, it would best understood by us as being off the grid. No power, no water, no sewerage, no facilities.
We only boondocked once while we RV'd, in the driveway of a friend's house. That really does not describe boondocking, especially as we stole our friend's water to fill up our tanks.
But isn't boondocking just such a great word? As for the practice of boondocking I assume you still have heating and cooling....and lights, a phone signal, and wifi. No? We need batteries.
