Welcome To Our Drone Docker Site!
Hi! We are Laurel and John Rodgers and our main love in life is travel. We’re the Drone Dockers. Whether visiting China to walk on the Great Wall or to a State or National Park here at home — it makes us happy. All we need is a new place to go and we are in heaven.
We really began travel in 2014 when we began a 6-year ‘3Xs-Around-The-World’ trip. It was the dreaded Pandemic that forced us home. We have learned from our world travel to be extremely adaptable. Now that we are back in the U.S., and we still desire to continue our life of full-time travel, we have become boondocking enthusiasts.
We also still love photography and videography. It only makes sense that now we concentrate on boondocking with our cameras and drones. Hence our blog name: ‘DroneDockers‘.
Boondocking is a term used by RVers to describe RVing without being connected to water, electricity, or sewer. ‘Boondocking’ is also the practice of pulling off the highway to stay at free locations in your RV in spots that have zero or limited facilities. Boondocking is actually encouraged by local, state, and federal agencies.
Because you’re not connected to any services it’s also called dry camping, free camping, and wild camping. We use our drones to find the best sites, take videos and more.
The blogs we create are designed for people of every age and background. But, one of the more important messages we like to send out is that you are never too old or too poor where you can’t travel. In our early 70’s, we visited 93 countries in 6 years with nothing more than $1700 a month in Social Security. And we returned home with more money than we had when we left.
DroneDockers was created as a way to share our story with you, while also providing a resource for all the things we learn along the way. Information such as adding the right accessories for your trailer or truck, sharing information on the gear we use, tips on locating the best boondocking areas. Passing on vital information like locations nearest you of potable water and dumping stations. As well as how we make it work as a couple, on a budget.
So if you’re curious about how we make it work as an older couple, or want more information on how you can use our boondocking tips to help make it easier for your future outings, we’d love for you to check out the rest of our site!
Thanks for reading!
