Dirtbags77, someone had posted the following website a few weeks back,
http://rv-camping.org/
I found it very helpful with tons of info on everything. If you scroll down the page there is a bookdocking section. You can also find places by state. Great info!

I do not know about flying J, but none of the Walmart stores allow "CAMPING" per se. Some stores, depending on local ordinances allow one or two overnight stays to catch up on some ZZZ's, but not to set up a camp site with awnings out, camping chairs, portable BBQ etc.

'Mello Mike' pretty much hit the nail on the head. However, some true Boondocking sites dont't necessarily mean quote: "little or no (noisy) neighbors". Take for example: Quartzsite and Senator's Wash in Arizona. These popular BLM spots are the nations top Boondocking locations. You'll have thousands of neighbors out there. Although, everyone gets along and only the occasional barking dog and/or generator noises are the only (noisy) issues.

Dry Camping at Wal Marts, etc...I too think that it needs to have its own term.....Maybe like "Lot Squatting"...Just a thought...

Why not just call it "Free basing?" That would include a lot of things & save the arguments.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

"Free Basing"...Sounds to much like taking drugs....I agree sometimes RV experiences require some sort of pain killer.....

whiteboy,

Isn't RVing our drug of choice? Sometimes we mix it with an elixir.

Overnight stops at Wal-Mart are some of the more expensive stops you'll make - - that 'quick' trip instead for milk and bread usually ends up with a couple of the items and $$$$ before you get out.
