Over the past two weeks we have looked at why Nevada is a natural choice for boondocking and the many places we can go geocaching during our RVing adventures. RVers can even use the geocaching website to assist in finding areas to boondock. While searching for places to go geocaching near Nevada’s Valley of Fire State Park, I came across a geocache titled “Better than Walmart”. The first three sentences of the cache description read, “The cache is in a free camping area. Some RVer’s stay in Wal-Mart Parking lots as they travel. When we arrived here we said this is “better than Wal-Mart’s parking lot”. This is a great area to explore and be sure to see the Valley of Fire State Park while you are here.” Places to explore, free camping and geocaching, sounds like a winning place to camp for me!

Who knows, I may see you there?
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.
