What artspe said!!!!!!

Although, if I can convince my husband that camping doesn't mean "bored", would like to do that, too!

I do it all. Being self contained and set up for any situation.

I boondock and then when I might want hookups, I hook up.

I rarely just spend one night at a time only when I'm on a time schedule, rarely, Or if there is absolutely nothing interesting in that particular area, rarely.

If I ever get to the full timing step I know I would spent weeks/months in one area until I exhausted anything there that interests me. As a full timer I would not have the need or inclination to just travel/move on until I was ready.

For me depends on the trip, I prefer full hook ups cause I don't care to use public restrooms, but am able to boondock for a few days if the place we are at is worth it. But to go park in the dirt somewhere just cause it's away from everything........................................ ...... Is just not me! We have been fortunate to have lived in small towns on beautiful acreage most of our married life so camping is not about getting away from the city for us, it's about spending time with friends and family enjoying great adventures the great outdoors, tourist traps, etc and not worrying about the a nasty Hotel room................

We're all of the above, depending on the trip. During our annual working trip as reporters for the Race Across America we stop and sleep wherever; at the event's time-stations, WalMart, a dark side road, whatever works.

After the event we take several weeks to get home and always do some major 'sploring of the USA.

Sometimes we'll get a real campsite for a night or two, especially if we need to do laundry, get real showers, etc or if it's really hot and humid and we need to use our air-conditioner. But we'll more often find an out-of-the-way place to drop anchor. Kathy is real big on using our "FREE USA CAMPSITES GUIDE." We've found some real gems in there, and the price is right. Actually not all of them listed there are free; most are and those that charge are usually under ten bucks.

I also use our beloved Trail Mite as my home when I'm off doing my other gig as a bicycle event promoter. The past two weekends for instance, we had events a Whiskeytown Lake near Redding, CA. I stayed at one campground (no hook-ups, just pit toilets and a water spigot) for a week to put on a California State Championship Mountain Bike Race that used the campground for the start/finish. Then I moved to a nicer, cooler site right on Clear Creek for the following weekend's 24 Hours of Whiskeytown. I was fully comfortable with using our sun shower for myself and for doing dishes. After five nights I'd used up one battery with night-time reading and running the fan and switched to the second battery and still had juice left at the end of two weeks...the weather was much cooler the second week and I didn't need the Fantastic Fan as much.

we use our 13' trillium for everything---boondocking (we have a portapotty that we only ever use if there are no other facilities), we use "regular" campgrounds but only need hydro..i have zero problems getting a bucket of water to do my dishes in....and when we head south each spring, we live in it for 4-8 weeks..at everything from flying j's. walmarts, campgrounds ....and love every minute.
for us, it is the "getting away" that is the attraction. we pack lightly, live simply and just enjoy.

Sounds interesting, your guide...what guide are you referring to?

I just Googled and discovered this gem of an internet site for "Free Campsites Guide" that I have never seen before. Is this it?

http://www.allstays.com/c/camping-free.htm

It even lists the sites by type and by a map which is immensely handy when one is planning out an itinerary!

I am mostly a traveler. The Fiber Stream is our portable motel as we use it to take our own bed with us for a more comfortable stay wherever we find ourselves. We cannot seem to get sleep in motels, and Robert can have difficulty sleeping even at home. I have decided to stop flying just because the gauntlet of airports has become problematic for me. When I was young I used to stay with relatives in their homes; even that practice is no longer viable. Dad is in a small apartment in a retirement community, my sister has a small condo. My brother is disabled and living in a nursing home.

On weekends we like to come to rallys to be amongst like-minded fiberglass folk. Whether boondocking or not, we are comfortable.

We don't boondock at all. Most of our camping is on weekends & we prefer some of the comforts of home, like air conditioning! We have a screen room & only use the Scamp for sleeping & cooking.

I prefer camping with someone, sitting aroung the campfire with friends, and family. Those out of the way out in the wilderness boondocking places bother me. I would fear for my life in them out in the wilderness.
I want someone I know to be close by(security). I mainly do State Parks, or campgrounds with electricity. Don't need a sewer hookup, but do like air conditioning when it is hot out or furnace on chilly nights. I would love to travel in the south in the winter, but fear of the unknown does bother me. Therefore I would need to plan my trip ahead of time and visit a friend or go to some recommended area.
Yep, I love camping with friends or family with or without hookups. Going alone so far has not been fun.
