RV Boondocking - The Road to the Good Life

Rated 3.00/5 based on 3 reviews
RV boondocking, the complete story... 19 chapters from my rv boondocking philosophy and finding good camps to work kamping and an rvers dictionary.

I may not have all the answers but I have a few... and maybe some advice you can use to help find the ones I don't have!

Not a big book... but a big little book! I believe it'll start you down the right road to finding shining times on the rv road!

About Brian Gore

Born in Ohio, and moved to Arizona as a young boy, B.K. Gore found at a young age on that Sonoran Desert, that along with the long views of Far Country, he had a love for story telling. That creates a problem for a young fella though. The trouble with youth, for a writer, is a shortage of experience. Life experience being the raw materials which a writer needs to build his stories, it makes writing a tougher go for the young.

As a teenager, his first love was horses and cowboyin'; with no way to make a living, telling stories, having occurred to him anyway.

The years took him from wrangling and cowboying as a teenager, through two hitches in the U.S. Army; from which he was evicted after he got busted up and the army claimed he was too stove up to soldier any more. So, he went back to cowboyin' for a good number of years, 'cause he was too dumb to do anything else!

Mixed in there, before, in between and after the army, was a stint in the copper mines of Arizona, the oil fields in New Mexico, more ranches and farms, and even a few runs at carpet cleaning, selling hardware, driving truck and producing custom leather goods. Whatever it took to pay the bills.

In between the town jobs, were the ranches, farms and bull studs, where the horses, cows and mules, always pulled him back.

All along the way, unrealized at the time, he was amassing a stock of experience from which to carve new stories, and honing his skills at spinning those tales.

It wasn't until he crossed over onto the shady side of the mountain, that he recognized that people seemed to actually enjoy his stories, and and at the same time, stumbled upon the vehicle he could use to present his tales to the public.

So now, he spends his time, building his tales of Honor, Betrayal, and Lonely Courage, wherever he sets his boondock camps.

He is a, Vagabond, story telling, cowboy biker, living on the road, and banging around the west he loves.

Review by: David Forster on Feb. 21, 2012 :
Good overview and introduction to boondocking, but would happy to see more in the way of anecdotes, personal experiences and opinions - what worked, what didn't, and why.

We are brand new to rv'ing and have a lot to learn. We have lots of simple questions that are probably obvious to anyone with experience - like what do typical boondocking sites look like in terms of access, how much of an issue does irregular ground create for connecting/disconnecting, where do you go for fresh water, how often is the water source drinkable from the tap, where do you get parts from, where can you have them shipped to (post offices?), etc.

The book is a good start and we would be buyers of a part 2 that provided more of things like the above.

Ditto for this one, see my in depth review on "Boondocking Tips". Hey I'm old, gotta right to only do it once.

Great job Brian.
