I was wondering if anyone does enough boondocking
(or is project-happy enough) to rig up a way to collect water while boondocking
My wife and I just got a Boler
, and are in the process of de-craping it to make it livable. We plan on full-timing (i want to full-time boondock), and I can't get the idea of water collection out of my head. My goal is to be as off-grid as possible with solar power
, but that's not enough for me! I've boondocked before and usually find water (and propane
...hmm) to be kind of annoying to run out of and have to make a trip to the nearest water tap. I'm not planning on boondocking
in deserts obviously, it does SEEM like a practical idea for me. I was just wondering if anyone had done this before and had some wisdom, or if anyone can tell me it's a terrible idea so I can put it to rest and think about something else...like paying my taxes or something.
I've thought of a rigging up a hideous awning
and hose type monster to a filter water and collect rainwater in a tank (not sure if I'd use the existing tank or do something else).
I'm out of the country right now (my wife tells me we're on vacation) otherwise I'd be out rigging this up.
Anyone have ideas!
