So, after reading other posts....

One needs a 21 gallon portable black water tank (Rhino), and a 21 gallon portable gray water tank (Rhino) to prevent breaking camp every 4 days?

No, just a single portable tank will suffice for both.  They're going to end up going down the same hole in the ground anyway.

If you’re planning to boondock regularly, then the composting toilet would make much more sense for you.  It will last at least 10 days with 2 people and if you do need to go longer you can just take some garbage bags and extra peat moss.  Plus you’ll save a lot of water.

As Overland said, if your a boondocker, and you don't have the composting toilet, H2O will be the larger issue.  I must admit, the composting toilet has served us well, its not smelly, its very easy to use, and, we can get several weeks of use before replacing the medium. I use the coconut coir with a little pine pellets mixed in. We empty the urine tan daily.  And you can drain your grey water tank almost anywhere, as long as you don't put a bunch of stuff down the drain....

I was trying to research federal and state law about dumping grey water on the ground its all over the board. One interesting thing is kitchen sink water in some cases is considered black waste water.  Bottom line that most say use common sense. And don’t tic off the enforcement agent 🤬when they come knocking at your door.

Better yet, camp where the chance of meeting one is zero. Meaning any primitive sites in National Forests out West. They have had such severe financial cutbacks they can’t even maintain the roads, much less patrol them properly..... You just don’t see any Rangers in any area besides their Stations in nearby towns. Twenty  years ago, they were everywhere. So sad.

Developed NFS campgrounds with hosts are a different story, those fine folks seem to universally care about taking care of their campgrounds, and will let you know if you can dump grey water. In my experience, it isn't ever permitted there. And never ever dump close to a lake or stream, use common sense.

All this is IMHO, because as Landrover points out,  the rules are every which way, if you can even find them in writing.....
