Boondocking to me means not seeing anyone until I want to. It really ticks me off (and that is the polite way of putting it) when I get miles away from anywhere and someone comes through on some noisy dirt bike or ATV and rather than move on, they decide that the little spot that I had picked just became their favorite race track.

I had something similar happen to me back in 2010 on a trip to the Kaibab National Forest. A 6 volt battery failed, leaving me with no 12 volt power in my rig. No fridge, water pump, lights, and radio. Now that REALLY sucked.

I really hate when.............I give a good friend the GPS coordinates and directions to a favorite, and (secret) location and he posts it in a boondocking forum and the next weekend 20 rigs show up to boondock at "this great spot" they found on said forums.
"Never again" is my new moto.

One time we went antelope hunting out in the middle of the Wyoming desert with no trees and just 3 ft. high sagebush. We had been there one night, already. It was just about an hour after sundown of the 2nd night, and it was dark. We had our lights on and a campfire , when we saw vehicle lights x2 coming toward us. All of a sudden the 2 rigs pull up on the other side of our campfire about 60 feet from our trailer. Without a word the people set up camp right next to us, but at least stayed on the far side of their rigs.
The next morning we could see they were from California.
Go figure..... Oh! Did I say thats what I hate when I'm boodocking?
