You Too Can Spend The Winter in Sunny Texas!
And Free Camping is The Key
With a climate much like Florida's, south Texas has not yet been
overdeveloped. Free camping right on the beach and in other scenic locations
can still be found here.
Would you like this view from one of your many free camping locations?
If you can get away for a month or several months this winter… you could be
spending much, if not all, of that time exploring the beautiful state of Texas.
What?? I hear you saying. Do you think I'm made of money?
Of course not. The truth is you don't have to be – not by a long shot. I'm
going to show you - in my 134-page e-book,
"RV Boondocking In Southern Texas"
– how two ordinary Canadians, with regular jobs and a seen-better-days camper
van, spend their winters in the Texas sunshine … for less than $300 a week.
You can explore the whole southwestern United States if you wish… for
practically the same amount you'd spend at home on groceries and utility bills!
Why do I know this to be true? Because the ordinary Canadian couple is my
partner and me.
Can you picture yourself visiting the must-see attractions in South Texas?
How about discovering some of the hidden "hotspots" of a winter in Texas?
"That's all very well," you may be saying. "Just because you can do it, doesn't
mean I can too."
I believe you can. That's why I wrote the guide… to show you step-by step
EXACTLY how we do it.
Through this guide I'm sharing all our personal free camping finds of the past
eighteen years of shunpiking (driving the back roads) through Texas. All the tips
and advice in the book are based on our first-hand experience over several

RV Boondocking In Southern Texas:
We were in Texas and Arizona last winter and are planing to go back again this year.
I use your guides a lot. I find them very helpful. We really enjoyed the Texas coast and the Tombstone area.
Just wanted to let you know we are now in Texas and followed your directions all the way down. Your comments, advice and suggestions were bang on. What a relief to know we can depend on your recommendations and not worry about where to camp the next night. I was afraid I would find a thousand other travellers all following the same advice and clogging up all those free "shunpiking" sites; not the case, no need to worry.
Tennessee has a lovely new visitors' center, just opened in October. Ohio rest areas have wifi available for $2.00/hour.
I'll keep you posted as we travel and you can check out our blog site for pictures of places you have recommended.
We are so glad to be travelling with your books. At night we go through your pages to see what is coming up next day. We also transfer important points to our CAA maps.
Thanks again for such wonderful helpful books.
I am enjoying your eBooks and planning my next trip!
I have traveled across Texas from one end to the other several times, and yet I
learned from your book about an incredible number of wonderful places to visit
and to camp that I somehow missed, although in some cases I passed within a few
miles of them without being aware of it.
I was so pleased with that first eBook that I had to get the rest of them, as
I also camp in Arizona, New Mexico and Utah. Looking forward to one about
Downloading your Texas boondocking book and reading it was a highlight of
today! Fantastic! You're obviously very skilled at synthesizing information
and organizing it into a wonderful, usable format. Love all the suggestions
Am looking forward to doing more boondocking now. I just finished a 13-month
trip with my 3 kids via RV, that included 28 countries. Time to enjoy the U.S.
Thanks for all your hard work - I really appreciate it.
We couldn't have done it without you!
We had the Internet and Don Wright's campgrounds book but in the end we found
most of our free camping listed in your guide (RV Boondocking In Southern
Texas). Because you had just been there, we knew we could trust that these
places still existed. You didn't let us down. Your information was "spot on".
"More, More, More !! Hi guys. I ordered your e-book last week, and devoured
every last word. I love reading about Rving on a budget.
I loved your e-book, more so than other resources, because we totally relate to
it. We believe in living simply. Our time together and freedom mean more to us
than a fat bank account. Also, because you are Canadian, you understand the
laws that govern crossing the border and travel in the U.S.
It seems that not a day goes by, that I don't find myself daydreaming, for a
moment or two, about hitting the road and seeing this great country of ours.
Reading about your travels gives me the encouragement I need to follow those
I am looking forward to receiving my next e-book and wanted to encourage you,
that there is an RVing couple on the prairies eagerly awaiting the growth of
your web page and the release of your next books!! Very well done !!
Trent and Teresa Shipley.
On our recent month-long RV trip to Texas our printed version of "The Frugal
Shunpiker's Guide" literally became coffee-stained from the amount of usage it
got. We were absolutely amazed to be camping right on the beach and in other
beautiful campgrounds for free or almost no cost. We would never have known
about or discovered these places without the guide.
Not having done much boondocking in the past, we were also very grateful to the
special tips and advice offered in that respect. We won't go on another trip to
the States without a copy of the Frugal Shunpiker's Guide for each area we plan
We highly recommend "The Frugal Shunpiker's Guide."
As veteran "Winter Texans" we have traveled extensively in southern
Texas. Even with all our experience we were still able to learn about new
places to visit, camp, and inexpensive ideas and tips on living frugally on the
road, in this handy guide.

Here's a follow-up, now that I've finished my trip:
I found the guide very, very helpful. I especially found the advice about some
of the free camping areas helpful as I never would have stayed at any of them
without your guide!
