Boondocking? 
I've always been hearing this term from a lot of other RVers, but never really understand what it means. Just what exactly is boondocking?

Boondocking is pretty much staying in a campground or wilderness area where there are no hookups.

Thats only 1/2 right, Boondocking is not done in a campground, it IS done in the wilderness,generally away from other campers, in the Boonies, hence the name, Boondocking.
If you are in a campground without hookups, you are dry camping, not boondocking.

Re: Boondocking? 
Check this out: What Is Boondocking?
"The word boondock originated early in the 20th century from American military servicemen serving in the Philippines. It comes from a Tagalog word for mountain bundog. They started using it to mean a rural, remote, bushy area. When they came home they developed the slang word "boonies". The RV community adopted the word to use it to describe remote camping in rural areas."
