Our first boondocking experience! We drove into the large gravel parking lot on the Columbia River close to midnight and so we did our best to be quiet and polite toward the two other campers as we drove into the corner farthest away from them. We popped up our camper and crawled into our new bed. A few hours later – and routinely every hour after that – we kept hearing trucks pulling into the parking lot near us. When we woke up and stepped outside in the morning, we were surprised to see a bunch of trucks with empty boat trailers parked in a line next to us. Apparently we parked right next to a boat launch! And apparently people in Oregon still take boats out in the winter. It’s duck hunting season!
