Newbie boondocker....

We recently purchase some land in NM which we intend to use for "boondocking" until we can afford to put a cabin up. I will need to do some prep work to the land, but in the meantime, I will be able to use it as is. Here are som pics of the land and oh ya, it has water and electric already on site. I will keep posting on here when I do upgrades to the land. Click image for larger version

Good luck on the work. Since you have water and electric I would say your are "boondocking" in comfort. What do you do with your black water?

Looks like a nice spot with all the important amenities.

tlhdoc, we will be using our portable dump tote, it seemed to work well this year.

jayeagle12, my very next step is to go up there and put a salt lick down and then listen to all the elk bugling. :hihi:

It seems that we all work hard to have a nice place to rest and relax.

Sounds pretty good! No elk around here... But we have a lot of deer.

This will work for years on part time use. Not sure how the codes are in your area.

I've been thinking about getting a piece of land in NH to bring the TT too and maybe someday build on. I wonder how the codes are in NH. Jayeagle, what are some of your favorite places to camp other than boon docking in Maine? We live in Somerville and store our TT in Tewksbury. Not far from you at all!

I have a pop-up that I take a couple of times a year.

If you have kids (or not) Chocora was a great campground.

If you want to be on a pristeen lake blackbrookcove was beautiful! A long drive but well worth it for the Lakefront sites.
