How does this boondock thing work, you ask? I essentially find a point on a map, often with the assistance of an app called Park4Night, that looks quiet and isolated and long after the sun goes down I make my way through winding roads, scout the area, trust my gut, put the van in park, shut her down, lock her up tight, put my security measures in place and lay low for the evening hoping no one knocks on the window or gives me a hard time. I never quite know how it’s going to work out. All you can do is cross your fingers and hope you’ve made a good decision. In today’s case – magic! Morning God rays and a fiery sky, with coffee on the cliffs, contemplating what to do next.
