The LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” Then the LORD God made a woman as mans helper.
If you had wandered by our recent gold dredge camp comprised only of men, you would have fully agreed that our camp needed a suitable helper Clothes were hung from every available drying source inside and out. Dishes were piled in the sink and cupboard doors were ajar. It is a good thing we were boondocking, as a private campground would probably have asked us to clean up camp or leave.
Now you know why most RVs are designed for couples or families. RV manufacturers figured out what God the Father knew all along. It is not good for man to RV alone!
Now if I can just get my suitable helper to come along on the next gold dredging trip. It seems she would rather find her gold in the jewelry store than a cold mountain stream up in the woods where the wild critters live.
Boondocking with the guys, just another adventure in RVing.
No rules about hanging out the laundry when boondocking.
Dave Helgeson’s many roles in the RV industry started before he even had a driver’s license. His grandparents and father owned an RV dealership before the term “RV” had been coined, and Dave played a pivotal role in nearly every position of an RV dealership. He and his wife Cheri launched their own RV dealership in the Pacific Northwest. The duo also spent 29 years overseeing regional RV shows. Dave has also served as President of a local chapter of the Recreational Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA), worked on the board of advisors for the RV Technician Program of a local technical college, and served as a board member of the Manufactured Home and RV Association. Dave’s reputation earned him the title of “The foremost expert on boondocking,” bestowed by RV industry icon, the late Gary Bunzer (The RV Doctor). When he’s not out boondocking, you’ll find Dave in the spotlight at RV shows across the country, giving seminars about all things RVing. He and Cheri currently roam in their fifth travel trailer, with Dave doing all the service, repair and modifications to his own unit.
