Overnight Stabling

Regardless of your plans, things can change. A breakdown, traffic tie-up, or weather delay can leave you far from your planned destination when you need to stop driving for the day. Before you hit the road, use the online directories of stables offering overnight accommodation and download the list of every stable along your entire route. That way, if things change, you have a starting point for finding an overnight stop.

Some of these are quite comprehensive; others have only a few listings. Some are updated regularly. Others may well have listings that are no longer accurate. Compare all of them and coordinate your route accordingly.

Boondocking is the term for camping far off the track in wilderness or totally primitive conditions. Often that will be in state or national parks or designated wilderness areas.
