Can I make it down there??



Before I actually owned an airstream, I'd look at potential boondocking sites and think, "That'd be perfect for the stream! So easy to reach!" But now that I own one, maintain one, and pay for it - I look at those same spots and think, "I dunno, that's kinda steep and pretty rutted, looks concerning!"

I know in the end that there is no substitute for time and experience and I will learn both good and bad lessons trying to get to good spots. But I could use your advice, too...

What is your criteria for discerning whether a spot is doable? What lessons have you learned?

I'm especially interested in hearing from those of you who, like me, plan on boondocking at least 70% of the time.
