Excuse me for butting in or being picky or whatever but it seems to me that we need to coin a new word for staying overnight in a parking lot. I have nothing against doing so if it's what you want but boondocking referrs to boondocks and in my vocabulary that means out in the backcountry. how about urbancamping or overnighting.
... cheap works to.


LOL...I vote for that one!

Dry Camping is dry camping, regardless of where it's done: Walmart, Quartzsite, the local CG with no hookups, or "boondocking" (whatever that means).

I call it overnighting. It certainly isn't boondocking. But I also don't call it dry camping because I don't "camp" in a parking lot.

Lately, I have been calling it Casino Camping. Most of the time, when dry camping, boondocking, overnighting, squatting, cheap etc., I am having fun !!!
Just because its winter and 98% of the CG's are closed wont stop us from enjoying Rving...


Full timing it since July 2012

No big deal! Folks call it what they want. I'll get it sorted out with a little conversation. Now... where did I place that universal norm?
