How Current are Your Boondocking Guides?
Q.How Current are Your Frugal Shunpiker's Boondocking Guides?
A.We continually retrace our routes for each of the guides every few years. We just got back from spending 6 weeks, covering the New Mexico route and I'm now rewriting that guide. You're right, things do change, and with my type of info, I really must go back and see it again to confirm it with my own eyes. A lot of my customers tell me that's why they can trust the info in my guides.
They cover so much territory that we can't retrace it all more often than we do nor fully update the guides more often. Besides, it's not necessary; when we revisit the areas we generally find only minor changes plus I always seem to find new locations of interest which I then add. So the guides get a little bigger with each edition.
The edition dates represent the last significant update based on our travels through that area. If I hear of other changes between trips (usually from a traveler who's following my guides), I first confirm the details with local officials, then make the change. These revisions are more recent than the edition date would imply.
No matter when you purchase them, I'll send you all future editions for FREE so there's no need to wait. Just be sure to register your purchase and keep me informed of any change to your email address.
To answer your question more specifically: The latest edition dates for the guides are as follows:
New Mexico: 2011 (next edition, 2015, is underway)
California - both guides: 2011
