Boondocking... a new subheading in lifestyle?

Hi Yall:
I see so many new folks here that are new to camping, much less Rving and was wondering is there an interest to create a Boondocking specific section on this forum? I love spending time in our nation's national parks and national forests and perhaps a Boondocking section will give newbys a place to go to learn and some encouragement to get into the outside and the more seasoned among us to learn a trick or two along the way too.

Perhaps a section called Boondocking under lifestyles is appropriate? Now if it exists somewhere else on the forum, then I clearly missed it and my bad .

Loved the pictures! Could you also share where they were taken? Don't if it means giving up secret spots or anything but I am just curious....looks like they should be in "Trailer life" etc.

let's make sure that "boondocking" is defined differently from "dry camping".

as i understand, "dry camping" is simply not having hookups of any kind, at a developed campground.

whereas, "boondocking" is camping at undeveloped spots, such as national forests, deserts, BLM land and so on.
