This blog is about some of my travels. For me it is an experiment in writing informally, something different from the rigid technical style at work. And it is about sharing information about camping sites.
I have thought a bit about the ethics of revealing boondocking sites. No one wants the location of their secret get-away to be broadcast on the web for all to know. This makes me hesitant to share the location of many wonderful sites with others. Yet I have benefited greatly from those that have shared with me and I want to help other travels, as I have been helped. It has simplified my travel knowing places that I can camp at before I arrive. After tossing this conflict around in my head, the approach I have settled upon is to share boondocking sites that appear to be well known and used by many people. I will keep mum on remote sites.
The blog title: Searching for the Middle of Nowhere, reflects my desire to get away from the cities – the traffic, the deadlines, the stress, and the people of cities. I love finding a boondocking site in the middle of nowhere where I can stop with my trailer and camp with my dogs.
Entries into the blog will be hit and miss corresponding to times when I can break free from work and search for the middle of nowhere. And at times I may write up posts for camping sites I visited in the past.
Life is full of changes and challenges. Let’s see how this goes.
Update: I’ve included a daily blog entry of my time being a lighthouse docent December 25, 2015 to January 22, 2016. Not really about anything in the middle of nowhere.
Update May 2019: I’ve retired from the paying job. Now there will be more time to travel.
