  7. LAWRENCE MARTIN on July 30, 2022 at 3:38 am

    This video does not tell me whether camping is allowed

  8. Kim Armontroutt on July 30, 2022 at 3:38 am

    Hi Bob my name is Kim and I have a question about how to find work as camp host on the road? I know you have done a show on this, but I don’t remember when.

  9. ArtsyLadyCrafter on July 30, 2022 at 3:39 am

    Thanks for the overview, Bob! Much needed and you are SO helpful! Great app. Going to buy it today.

    Great info bro ! Thanks.Have been on the quest for free camping.

  12. Kathleen Murphy on July 30, 2022 at 3:43 am

    Thank you for sharing your wealth of knowledge! I downloaded the app and am ready to search for the perfect spot along California’s coast near Big Sur. So far, my favorite BLM spots have been in Grand Staircase Escalante!

  13. Oscar Anderson on July 30, 2022 at 3:43 am

  19. jbaby007 on July 30, 2022 at 3:50 am

    Edit: spoke too soon. Answered my question!

    Can someone with only a fwd vehicle access some of these public lands? I have a sedan and it seems like a great opportunity but I don’t know if my sedan would safely make it out there.

  20. Jack Phillips on July 30, 2022 at 3:51 am

    This question was asked but not answered-Can you use it without a cell connection? (like a GPS app?) Because if you can’t you could get yourself in deep trouble. Anyone know the answer??

  21. Happy Cook on July 30, 2022 at 3:52 am

    When it rains on the desert, would your rig get stuck?

  22. Richard Witt on July 30, 2022 at 3:53 am

    thank you

  23. martyjp100 on July 30, 2022 at 3:53 am

    can you use this to find camping in National Forests?

  24. Odd_Life_Chavez on July 30, 2022 at 3:54 am

    California right next to Mt St Helena is a good one going there soon great videos

  25. Jerry Stalvey on July 30, 2022 at 3:55 am

  29. Rebecca K Strain on July 30, 2022 at 3:57 am

    What do you do if you encounter a bear or mountain lion? Does bear spray really work?

  30. Brian Hogan on July 30, 2022 at 3:58 am

    As always more practical information as I get closer to my goal of traveling across the southwestern United States!Thanks

  31. Gail Barraco on July 30, 2022 at 4:01 am

    Thanks Bob!

  32. David G. Johnson on July 30, 2022 at 4:01 am

    So in finding a BLM land, you don’t have to go to the BLM Regional Office first?
    In this video are you looking for your favorite "dispersed" BLM land, instead of the 14-day BLM land?

  33. James Vogt on July 30, 2022 at 4:02 am

    Great video Bob. Thanks for posting!

  34. Maryj on July 30, 2022 at 4:04 am

    I bought the app and thank you for the app lesson – it was very helpful! When on this BLM land can you pull of the road and over small vegetation or does the area have to be clear where you pull over? Do you worry other will come in at night and run into your vehicle if it’s partially sticking out in the road?

  35. A. New on July 30, 2022 at 4:06 am

    Great information, thank you for posting!

  36. Linda Marie on July 30, 2022 at 4:07 am

    Thanks for this video. I finally took my first trip age 71 not fully recovered from major surgery. My first night I stayed in a campground as I wanted to rearrange my stuff to where I will actually use it. I felt totally wore out so actually dis nothing. 3 days later I was at my dearest friends home and stayed for a week and saw my son also. Then instead of going home I decided to cut over to the coast. I have this tall water bottle with push button spout works great except for if you don’t secure it well. I didn’t realize the road was so EXTREMELY winding to the coast. The bungee cord I had on the bottle would allow it to go so far and spill water on every turn unbeknown to me. Shortening story here because it was pouring rain and everything was wet. Then I decided to stay at a KOA because they have a little store to get bread n milk etc. not much choice but I was exhausted. Anyway to sum this all up on day three I was at a rest stop an some gal was rearranging her gear in her car. I asked her if she wanted a Van. She looked scared and got in her car. So back home trying to recover and won’t sell it yet but if I find a bigger Van it will be a possibility. I have never had a mini van before and with my mobility issues it is a bit tough to get into. But the gas mileage blew my mind. 6 hrs driving and I still had half a tank. Maybe when I get over this exhausted feeling from three surgeries at once I might find it a lot easier. Oh n I traveled with my cat. She has more stuff than me. Again thanks for video. I am close to Bend OR so will have to check out this app.

    We started watching CheapRVliving a few years ago. We have been to AZ many times and attended the rally in January. We are from Rhode Island. Sold our two houses and in the process of unloading all our stuff. Our large home and commercial welding business collected tons of stuff over the years. I will feel lost without our beautiful "stuff" but the freedom will be well worth it. We purchased a mobile RV (41′) and will head out to Arizona in the fall. Heading to Quartzite public land for the winter. We want to buy an acre of land somewhere. I like Pahrump but maybe AZ would be better. Thanks to you Bob, a million times over.

    I love using The Dyrt and Freeroam Apps on my phone whenever I’m planning on moving locations. I’ve been Nomad living fulltime for over 2 yrs now and love it. Out of all the Westcoast states I’ve found Arizona is one of the most relaxed States for long term Boondocking. Technically 14 days is what you’re allowed but I’ve never had any issues in Arizona. I have had issues in Nevada quite a bit but Oregon and Arizona have been amazing for Nomad Living. 1Luv and love the content!!!

  39. Dayna Cook on July 30, 2022 at 4:07 am

    Thank you for step by step guidance!

  40. Thomas Hardy on July 30, 2022 at 4:09 am

    Here’s my problem. I enjoy the East coast more than the west. It’s where most of my friends live. And the west is running out of water- for residents AND nomads. If you’re in the northwest it’s not as bad, but the southern states are really struggling. I also travel a lot in the central states, so my dilemma is that there isn’t much BLM land out east. I also work mostly out of NY, Florida, and Cali. So what should I do? I know there are some free and cheap places out here, but not many. Got any advice for us central and east coasters?

  41. George Zubeck on July 30, 2022 at 4:10 am

    Most intelligent and useful video I’ve seen on youtube for awhile. Keep it up. Thanks

  42. Kelli Wainscoat on July 30, 2022 at 4:13 am

    I have tried to identify BLM land AND how to get to it from older videos on this channel: bewildering. THIS video did the trick. Thank you!!

  43. okhomestead on July 30, 2022 at 4:14 am

    This really helped! Thank you.

  44. Dennis Morgan on July 30, 2022 at 4:15 am

    thanks for the info

  45. okhomestead on July 30, 2022 at 4:17 am

    Purchased based upon your recommendation. TY

  46. Stephanie Simmons-Ashorobi on July 30, 2022 at 4:17 am

    Thank you for this education.

  47. four-x-trading on July 30, 2022 at 4:18 am

    I live in Montana but I assume south Dakota would be a better option for BLM land I need to find something close to jobs no more than 1 hr always I imagine how hard that would be to find I don’t know much about BLM land I just know that it’s free and in the boonies I’m just not sure how far away if I couldn’t get a job close to the city I’d need to find a online job or something what do you do for work or are you retired?

  48. Technomadia on July 30, 2022 at 4:22 am

    We just noticed a HUGE spike in app sales for US Public Lands and tracked down this video. Bob, you absolutely humble us with your review and detailed tutorial on how to use the app to find amazing lesser known boondocking spots. Exactly why we created it so many years ago. Thank you thank you thank you!!

  49. RV'ing with Luck on July 30, 2022 at 4:24 am

    Great video and info. I was born/raised (until 21) in Tucson.
    Never knew about the BLM land around there.

  50. Tikiman on July 30, 2022 at 4:26 am

    Great information, thank you… I hope to use this app for my own adventures
