Publisher's Summary

Boondocking has gained an incredible amount of popularity as more and more people tire of overcrowded campgrounds and take to the backroads of America's public lands in search of peace, solitude, and free - yes, free - camping.

Your RV is your key to accessing the remote yet highly sought-after seclusion and tranquility of camping in the wild outdoors. Knowing how to get off the grid is crucial for successfully navigating your boondocking adventures. But going off-grid requires serious preparation, planning, and even practicing before you take your first trip. This book is for newbie boondockers as well as those who have been out of the circuit for a while.

In Boondocking Secrets: Adventure on the Road Less Travelled, you will discover:

  • The one resource boondockers overlook and end up missing out on the best sites
  • The key to finding the best spots boondockers are welcome, including government-managed free public land
  • The number one (surprising) item boondockers insist on for saving water
  • A list of the necessary gear for a successful boondocking experience
  • The difference between wallydocking, casino camping, and stealth or pirate camping
  • Fifteen tips for making the most of your on-board systems
  • Insider's information about specific geographical areas that require extra consideration and planning
  • No-trace principals and why the best boondockers follow them
  • A bonus section with the top states where you can find free boondocking campgrounds, where the top campgrounds are, and the lowdown on each one
  • And much more...

The number one reason boondockers fail and turn back home is lack of preparation! This book will help you succeed where those others have failed.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

The narrator had a pleasant voice but she mispronounced many words

I enjoyed the book
it was well written and the narrator had a very pleasant voice.
very easy to listen to……
but there were locations out west that she mispronounced and it was just a little bit distracting from what she was actually reading out loud because you would want to try and correct it but you couldn’t!


however, I’m not going to subtract that from the fact that it was a really informative and well presented book….it had a lot of great information and I’m very grateful for it.

Informative with some strange pronunciation

I appreciate the information, and plan on using a lot of the provided information for some of my trips in the future. While it doesn't take away from the relevant points of the book, the narrator should have researched the proper pronunciation of some of the location names.

Woah

So, with everything getting more and more expensive, I thought I'd try my hand at staying in an RV and working remotely from there. So, to prepare for this, I decided to read up on RV camping since I'll pretty much be doing that full time after I sell my house. Let me tell you, this book is exhaustive! I have been watching videos for a few months now but this book still taught me a few secrets that I hadn't come across yet.

If you're like me and are looking to live the boondocking life OR you just want to boondock for vacation, this is a must have book. Pick it up and join us!

A new view on RV Camping!

This book has great information if you are planning to travel in a RV. I always wanted to go cross-country with my family in a RV, and "Boondocking" seems to be the way to go. I love the handy Boondocking Secrets PDF included with this audiobook as it covers key essentials you should be traveling with. I would not have remembered to bring all of these items and this is a good source of reference. The bonus chapter: "Top States for Boondocking" also covers excellent information as I had no idea that some of the states mentioned were considered a top state for Boondocking. I highly recommend this book!

Boondocking Adventures Unraveled & Made Simple 👌

This book is a boon for boondocking enthusiasts and wannabes. I had no idea that there was an exact science behind boondocking and I could never imagine myself doing it. But after reading this exhaustive book by S. K. O'Brian boondocking makes sense and doable. The advice & suggestions given here can and must be followed by campers in general. What I loved about the book is that the author explains everything there is to know before you set out on your adventure. The author suggests to first start by camping in your driveway, then a little further away from your home, as dry runs to see where you stand in your preparedness before you head out into the wild. Excellent advise. Even the make and model of stuff needed for your ultimate success is mentioned in the book along with loads of tips & hacks. I loved the tips on how to conserve water, without sacrificing hygiene and the chapter on 'No Trace Principles'. Noteworthy thing is the author wants us to have a good time in the wild and also wants us to respect Nature & Wild Life. The narration of Sherrice Williams is fun to listen to and will transport you to different places! Highly recommended.

The Most American Way to See America!

Bought this as our family is about to get an RV, and we've been trying to learn different ways to park/camp affordably without relying on RV parks wherever we go for lodging. Boondocking Secrets not only shows you how to avoid RV parks, but affordably AND legally! The best part is that it shows you where you can stay near some of America's great destinations/national parks, in areas where dispersed camping is allowed.

The narrator is engaging and enjoyable to listen to, and the author has an abundance of first hand experience so each point shared feels truly valuable. Would recommend to anyone who already owns or is about to buy an RV, and is looking for a lodging alternative to RV parks where they can truly see the country!

Exactly what I needed for my next adventure. RV camping throughout the lockdown has been a great alternative to traditional trips abroad but I've now got great insights to add for next time :)
