BoondockingAirstream Posted January 28, 2018 Share Posted January 28, 2018 (Airstream 25 foot and the Oliver II 23 feet 6 inches- my mistake) This is my opportunity to meet the proud owners of an Elite II in the Western USA, Off the Grid Boondocking experience. Only two 25 foot trailers. An Airstream and an Oliver. This is Off the Grid trailer camping. No definite camp sites, although areas we have explored. No facilities at most sites. Just myself, my wife and two Blue Heelers and a couple owning an Oliver II in the Wilds of the Western Rocky Mountain, Great Basin areas. There is a very big... caveat. We are very experienced Off the Grid tent and now trailer campers. The Oliver II family need to be comfortable and experienced OTG Boondockers. Otherwise, the experience will be so foreign and a deviation to the RV Park and established campground setting, it will be unsettling to most trailer owners. You must be physically fit. Some casual climbing, no ropes. Fishing opportunities with a fly rod. Forest Service and BLM roads. It depends where the location is of this Rocky Mountain Rendezvous. I am a Geologist and amateur Archaeologist, Paleontologist, Mineralogist and metal detect for meteorites, rock or trash. This is more of an Adventure, than a camping trip to sip wine and dine out at restaurants in town. This has been tried with a group of Airstreams and found difficult, due to a wide range of interests and experience, being away from electrical hookups and flush toilets, lacking hot showers every afternoon. Some managed well. Others needed a personal guide. We found that a ‘one on one’ with similar interests and experience levels were perfect matches. You must have seven to ten days, maybe more if we get into an area of special interest, traveling in an area of common interest to both parties. This would be for the Summer of 2018. We are both retired, so flexible and in July southern Nevada is 110F at 2,500 feet elevation. We would be looking at 5,000 to 8,000 foot elevation camp sites. Warm dry days and cool ‘damp or dry’ evenings. You never know, when at Elevation. If there are any OliverII couples interested, then I will then toss out questions to understand your experience of OTG on this Thread. There is a chance that no one wants to take the offer. That is fine. We understand. Many OTG Boondockers prefer the peace and quiet among solitude, avoiding congestion, loud music and traffic. If there is interest, only ONE Oliver on this true Adventure. Explain your experiences and interests. You must be comfortable in places that I found many... uncomfortable and detached from being camped in places with fresh air, no posted signs, no people and wonderful views. Are there any takers? If so... this will be an open discussion. If this is successful, 2019 may be the next opportunity to meet and greet another Oliver family. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
