We found a place in Buffalo Gap National Grasslands, right outside the Badlands, that had quite a few boondockers camped on top of the canyon. The views were incredible and we decided to try it for two days. If it didn't work out, we still had our campsite in Wall to head back to.
We arrived late in the morning and found a perfect spot. We were overlooking the canyon and had noone within shouting distance. Of course, we chose the hottest day we'd had in two years, 98 degrees to go boondocking. The wind was blowing well, so we had cooling winds until about 3 pm when it started getting too hot, so we turned the generator on and blew some a/c our way.
Unfortunately, as the day progressed, the wind got stronger and stronger until we couldn't sit outside anymore. Sage and I were up all night, holding on as the wind kept blowing us to and fro. The next morning, it looked like we might have torn the slide toppers, so Dave decided it was time for us to go back to the campground before something else broke.
So, ended our time boondocking, or boonglamping as I call it. We learned some valuable lessons that we'll use the next time we try it.
IN the meantime, below are some pictures of the beautiful scenery we had. Enjoy - we did!
