This quote is from one of our favorite movies, Into the Wild, and was one source of inspiration that led us to sell everything and hit the road back in 2010.
We love being out there, in the wild and so while staying in a campground with lots of amenities and full hookups has its allure; our absolute and favorite type of camping is Boondocking or as we like to say, Wild Camping! There is nothing better than driving deep into the wild where the views are never ending and the sounds are au nat-ur-el!
Plus, it’s usually free (yep the free camping part is definitely a bonus)! Sure there are no hook ups (water, electric, cable or sewer), but it doesn’t mean you have to live like a heathen. So, since we can’t take you all Wild Camping with us, we thought we would bring the Wild Camping experience to you.
Spoiler Alert: You are about to see me (Nikki) with no makeup. It’s a big deal.
So what did you think? Are you ready to take on the world, unplugged?
Ok, I swear that is the last Into the Wild movie quote I am going to use. I think you get the idea.
While explaining the true meaning of RVing to non-RVers we often times find ourselves trying to explain how amazing Wild Camping is…and since we’re not wordsmiths we find it difficult to put into words.
If we could bottle up the experience with all its excitement, peace and the amazing sense of self reliance that comes with living off the cord it would convince everyone of you to quit your jobs and head out into the wild. Unfortunately we don’t have those powers (yet) so for now you’ll just have to take our word for it…
