sixtieschick BS: Boondocking (Camping) Experiences? (70* d) RE: BS: Boondocking (Camping) Experiences? 15 May 05


Inquiring minds might want to know: The term "boondock" comes from a remote mountain village in the Philippines called Bontoc. During WW II, some U.S. soldiers were sent there to fight the Japanese. They considered it the most far-flung, primitive area on the planet. The name got bastardized to "boondock" and then "the boondocks."

And in case inquiring minds want to know, I learned this because I was a teacher in that area. It's a very wonderful--and remote--place.
