1. wild, desolate, or uninhabitable country
2. a remote rural or provincial area Sometimes shortened to the Boonies
Hence the RV'ing term, "boondocking".
We love boondocking. Or "dry camping" as it is sometimes called. Just parking the motorhome somewhere out of the way without any electrical or water hookups. That's one of the reasons we love Mexico because there are soooo many boondocking opportunities there!
