Using the old fashioned way of walking, hitchhiking, and public transportation, we found more than our fair share of lovely towns and locations in the boondocks of Europe. Camping was the norm back in the non-Mac era. Here’s how to hit the boondocks from your Mac.
All About Boondocking
Boondocking is a term we used in college. Think camping meets wilderness. Or, backpack meets small town.
If you have an itch to travel around the US of A and off the beaten path, and you’re a Mac user, here’s an app you’ll love to use.
It’s called Boondocking.
This map based app uses maps to locate and describe boon dockinglocations throughout the US. You’ll even find locations based upon Andrew Koransky’s highly acclaimed Boondocking.org website.
Here’s a look at what you can get with a simple click on the Boondocking app.
Boondocking is what you expect and an absolute bargain, especially considering the already low price tag.
For example, you can get directions from your current location to a boon docking location. And, as is the case with Apple Maps, you get to view the travel and location in Standard view, Satellite view, or the Hybrid view.
Because Boondocking is location based you’ll be able to view photos from Flickr from nearby locations. There’s also weather information about each location. Boondocking has other useful camping details, too, including an elevation filter so you can select elevations appropriate for your location and time of the year.
Amazingly, not every traveler is a Mac user, there’s also a companion Boondocking app for iPhone and iPad with much the same features.
Whether you carry Mac, iPhone, or iPad, Boondocking is one of those rare apps which is useful far beyond the nominal price tag. Way cool, folks. Way cool.
