Just curious as to how many members are campers? If so do you have a travel trailer, 5er, or motor?  Any of you boondock?  Just getting to know people better.

The teardrop is officially complete: https://youtu.be/jdjLu6BYgg4

I tried to get my canoe in the back of the truck but didn't fit with the teardrop attached.  My heart was broken.  But the canoe and paddle now have to go on top of the teardrop.  Arcadia Valley here

I posted a link to my Facebook page on this but I will upload some pictures, here.  Now this is still not complete but usable.  The galley cabinets have not been started.  I have screwed in a piece of

What does boondock mean?

Money is just ink and paper, worthless until it switches hands, and worthless again until the next transaction. (me)

 Boondocking is camping off the grid. Without power hookups, water source, etc.  requires more planning, and usually a different "items we must have" setup, and thoughts of how much water to use, and more careful flushes of the toilet as to not fill up the black tank. 

 

Nothing like drifting for hours to a secluded place, and setting camp. Lots of memories over the years. Now it's more about taking "everything" but the kitchen sink it seems. And having a water source, AC/heat, and a comfy bed rules "as she says". I'm still a rustic kinda guy, but knew that in order to make it a family friendly event, we needed a camper. 

 

Ive owned a few over the years. Started out in the 80's with a tent trailer. It did its job many years. Upgraded to a 1991 Coleman 22' camper, and thought we were in heaven with the comforts. Upgraded in 96' to a 28' 5th wheel and realized that was the perfect size and tow type for me. Then decided to go with a 31' 5th wheel and that little extra room was very noticeable, especially with a growing family.  

 

Now that my older kids are out of the house, and we just have a little one at home, we downsized to a Four Winds 25' bumper pull. 1/2 ton towable as it's pretty light, tho we pull it with a 3/4 ton truck. Still haven't upgraded the rear bumper to attaché a hitch to tow our boat, but it's coming, eventually.  

 

We waited til the last minute, as we weren't going to go camping on Fathers Day Wknd this year, and kicked the idea around Wed.  After scanning all of the Corp grounds on TR, with not a single opening, we decided to reorganize things in the camper this weekend instead. Now time to plan for the next outing. Lake Texoma is coming soon.

We just called it primitive camping.  Usually with tents.  Can be fun, and miserable at the same time.  I am not a luxury camper, but I do appreciate running water nearby.

    Mostly boondock camping for us Ketchup,

Save for two weeks of it out West. Stay off grid all we can but there is times we need to resupply, get water and a real shower between places. Another reason the high country is the fishing and the cooler weather. Hard to get a good nights sleep sweating.

Nice setup Billet.  I agree 100% with the lack of sleep due to humidity. Tho I enjoy Boondocking, my better half loves the feel of fresh showers daily, lack of noise from the generator, and a store close by for the conviences in case we run out of something. Not much better than the camping/fishing lifestyle, especially in the spring/fall.

Hey Dutch. Do you pull a boat behind?  Where do you find yourself camping the most "areas of the Ozarks"?

No I don't pull a boat behind.  My wife pulls it with her Jeep.

Most of my camping is done at Stockton;  Crabtree Cove or Cedar Ridge USACE and State Park DNR.  I also like Dam Site USACE at Pommy.
