Boondocking – Eh?

You’re probably thinking what on earth are they babbling on about?

I also thought this too!

But, as the saying goes; you learn something new every day!

I shared a tweet earlier, to which it was re-shared with some new and improved funky #hashtags, one of which was ‘Boondocking’.

Now, what is Boondocking?

Boondocking is essentially camping in a car, van, motorhome, RV or any other form of transport but for free and without any form of water or electric hook up.

Which is exactly what this blog is about! Amazing right?

It’s a word that appears to have made its way across the Atlantic Ocean and on to UK soil.

So in future, I guess I will be adding #Boondocking to my posts!

When I told my office I had learnt a new word, they all thought I had gone mad! Finally, she’s completely lost the plot – we knew it would have to happen at some point!

Then I was saved. One of the guys in the office told me of a 60’s song he used to know which is titled ‘Down on the Boondocks’

So a Boondock is in the CAMBRIDGE ENGLISH DICTIONARY described as:

‘Any area in the country that is quiet and has few people living in it’

And Boondocking is the act of camping in that location!

Voila! You’re welcome!
