We booned to get closer to the trail, we needed to be working on. Driving is not getting any work done or any fun for that matter.. Nonetheless, paying $14 for well water and pit toilets is a steal for us. NFS sites are normally on a nice river or lake and that must be nature? Digging cat holes is not all that much fun either.
Availability and flexibility is another.Based upon my read of this thread most people boondock for 3 reasons: (1) sites are free and they are cheap, (2) you are out in nature and the only camper around and (3) better sites along rivers, creeks and beaches.
I always enjoy watching your videos!That is a hard question to answer. There are so many choices and so many roads. Many of the more popular free sites are well documented by other campers who have been there. I make it a habit to write a review of most of the sites I visit. Here is a review I did on a site near me: https://freecampsites.net/#!145178&query=sitedetails
Sometimes I make a YouTube video of the site.
