We generally leave the campsite the way we want to find it next time. ...snip...
Just relax, cook, hike, meet with the neighbors ... and just chill out.
Anyone else boondock just to 'get away from ALL of it'?
Congratulations on your trailer upgrade....
We just replaced our class-B with a travel trailer. We plan to travel
with it so we will do some boondock/dry camping and some RV destination park camping (i.e. Fort Wilderness in Disney World... virtually the opposite of boondocking
). With the class-B (and a modified van before that), the majority of our camping was boondocking in Alaska, Canada, and lots of places in the lower 48. With the trailer, we have more room and creature comforts but still want to spend time in natural settings as often as possible.
Like you, we like to relax, cook, hike, meet with the neighbors ... and just chill out. And, when we leave the campsite, we leave it better than when we arrived.
You'll probably meet lots of folks on this forum that like to 'get away from it all' and some that like to dive right into the thick of things.
