Solar isn't for everyone. Check out my thread, "stuck" at the top of the Modifications forum to see why and how I did my system, before you jump at solar as a solution. We do a LOT of boon docking, so for us, it's perfect.

just a clarification.

Dry Camping is what most of us do, when there are no hookups. dry camping is camping in a developed campground, with numbered campsites but no hookups.

Boondocking is considered camping in un-developed areas, that don't have numbered sites and usually no facilities. it's just open areas that you decide to park at. this is usually done in BLM land or state/national forest or deserts.

That definition is as good as any. IMO, where you park is not the issue, but how you camp when talking about systems use and improvement for both conditions.

Getting through a weekend or a month with no hookups other than what you bring with you is a system and technique discussion that is appropriate to both.
