I expect it will make your relationship with the host pretty uncomfortable if you elevate it. You could wait till you're ready to leave, but there's a chance people will come back before then.


3/4 timing in a DIY van conversion. Backroads, mountains, boondocking, sometimes big cities for a change of pace.

That is my concern. I come here several times a year. I'm not sure this is a big enough deal to elevate it. Not that I need any kind of relationship with the hosts, but I do like being allowed in.

It's a shame about them being in the best spots.

One thing you could do is keep a written record, in case you want to notify the higher-ups at some future point. It seems like people are more impressed by that kind of thing then just by your word that it was several weeks. You could get a calendar, or a little notebook, and by each date write "still vacant" when they are...

Yeah, that's good. I probably shouldn't have said anything to the hosts, because it's obvious they aren't doing (what I suspect should be) their jobs.

Well, how else were you to know what was going on? for all you knew the host had a family emergency of their own and hadn't been paying attention, and would hop right on it when you said something :-).

But it is too bad, of course, that now they know you are the person who has a problem with it and is willing to speak up.

We are in northern Montana at the Fresno Res. on Rte 2 on BLM land high up over the Res. and all around were campers that looked they had been there forever. Later a game warden stopped by and we asked him what the deal was, He said the BLM office is so far away they never get out here so the locals know they can just leave their units without any hassles. We got the last decent spot.
