Lest we forget Tioga George (Still goin strong)

Sock Monkey Trekkers: Tioga George: The Ultimate Extreme Urban Boondocker

In 2003, at the age of around 66, George was diagnosed with a serious cancer (non-Hodgkin’s lymphonia) and was given a poor chance of survival. After extensive treatment, George was in cancer remission. Circumstances in his life led him to have very little in retirement savings, but he vowed to live life to it's fullest and travel the West. He had a limited pile of money saved up, enough to purchase and outfit a 12 year old Fleetwood Tioga C Class RV.
And I can just imagine how much effort went into the "Map of George's Boondocking sites"

Interesting link. I checked the boondock/nite sites near me - most are in business parks... that probably empty out at night. I was surprised there were some in some high-ish end residential areas. (La Jolla, near the beach). I would imagine those would not be good for more than 1 night.
