Gear Review-Frugal Shunpiker Guides

six book covers for the Frugal Shunpiker Guide e-books
The Frugal Shunpiker Guides are a great resource!
Funny name. GREAT info!

One of the things we want to do down the road is boondocking (or dry camping) on public lands. Translation: free camping in some pretty amazing locations. Trying to glean that info from others can be a bit challenging. But, we found the Frugal Shunpiker Guides

 If you are considering boon-docking (dry camping) this series is a must have in my opinion.

We ordered the Arizona guide to check it out, and will definitely be going back for the rest.

This eBook is chock full of information on where you can camp for free (and/or cheap). The author includes:

  • Campsite locations - complete with hyperlinked GPS coordinates!)
  • Campsite conditions
  • Free and/or cheap things to do in the area
  • Waste dump and fresh water locations
  • What roads are like
  • Cell phone coverage
  • Hiking trails
  • And more

Marianne Edwards knows what she’s talking about as she and her partner have logged well over 60,000 miles in frugal RV travel. These guides are well written, very accurate, and easy to use. Having it as an e-book with linked info is super! We feel we can highly recommend The Frugal Shunpiker Guides. In fact, these guides are so good, we are now affiliates for them. (That means by purchasing through us, you help us keep doing what we do.)

And there's a bonus. With your purchase the author will also give you, free of charge, the "Frugal Shunpiker's Guide: Basic Boondocking". That's also full of some pretty useful info, and you can't beat the price for it.

So hit the link, get a copy and you’ll see what we mean. I think you’ll be glad you did.

By the way, shunpiker is a real word. According to Webster:
     shunpike: a side road used to avoid the toll on or the speed and traffic of a superhighway.

So as you see, a shunpiker is one who does just that!

Happy travels!
