Is it really illegal for a fulltime RVer to stay even one night in a National Forrest?
We’re not the all-time champion boondockers. I think the most nights of a year that we’ve ever dry camped is about 200 and a lot of that was in organized dry camps. But along the way I’m sure we’ve been in technical violation of a few laws from time to time, especially when blacktop-boondocking at casinos. These days it seems there’s a greater propensity to enforce the “letter of the law” taking common sense out of the equation. In part I blame the “zero tolerance” rules that kids have lived under in public schools for the past 20+ years. I also blame the politicians and (worse yet) un-elected bureaucrats who create the tens of thousands of pages of laws and regulations.
James Madison said: “It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.”
