If you didn't NEED 4wd to get to your spot maybe? your not "in middle of nowhere" but only on the edge of nowhere.Where I go an "RV" wont make it. Face it you don't want me next door. Unless you like the sound of me taking the buggy for one more ride at 1am after fixing what I broke earlier that day. That's also why I camp mid week. in sunday night gone by fri. am.

We haven't been "boondocking"... But the thought makes me really miss the old hunting club I used to belong to. Most of the guys hunted on weekends...and precious few were bow hunters. I usually have weekdays off...so I would get up there on a Sunday evening...and stay until the crowd started rolling in on Friday. Many times I would be the only person up there. It WAS complete solitude. The wind blowing thru the tall pines. The sound of all the little critters making their sounds. WOW...decompression time!
Getting out there and finding you forgot to drain/fill the tanks before leaving could be considered bad. So could forgetting the beer. Number one worst will always be the obnoxious neighbor moving in within ear shot of their happiness.
Something like a couple of years ago when we were out at our favourite lake and had set up waiting for our daughter and her family to arrive in their rig. Someone who we did not know just pulled up in their 5th wheel with tandem trailer in tow right up so that their door was 15 feet away from our campfire!! Never asked if we minded nor introduced themselves.
When I politely asked them to move and suggested that they would be welcome to share our area if they parked in a spot to give us some privacy, he got all huffy and upset. Then we had to go through the process of unhitching his tandem trailer so he could back out of the spot and turn around. Offered to help him manhandle the trailer, but he still treated me like I was some type of selfish ba^%$3.
Saw him later in another spot where he had crashed another groups campsite!!!

I hate it, wherever you camp, when you have to deal with inconsiderate people. People who walk right through your camp to get to the lake even though you reserved the lakeside spot months in advance to have the prime spot. I grew up camping and my Dad taught me proper camping manners, I hate it when I have to teach other campers I don't know the same...
Some one parks and sets up camp 10' away from you with RV full of screaming kids, a large commercial generator, and the kids and animals are running loose all over the place.
Amen! I really don't mind someone 20' away but one year there was a group of 5 RV's all with kids, dogs, and loud music. Then . . . wait . . . the kids were rafting down the creek behind us and none of the adults from their group was watching. Now, this is no slow ordinary creek, but a snow fed, swift running creek. Now, imagine being here then all of a sudden, melee breaks out! BTW - creek is deeper than it looks.
