This is what boondocking is all about. The only thing that is missing are big views.

Campendium's marker is at the intersection of Forest Road 139 and the unmarked Grover Spring Canyon road. The first spot on the unmarked road (about .1 mile from the intersection) is very workable but was taken. We settled in to the second spot (34.357857,-110.342769,) about 1/4 mile from the intersection. It took some shuffling to get turned around and get the trailer situated for the solar panel. We're in the shade in the morning, but the panel is nicely lit from mid-morning to later afternoon in spite of the pine trees around us.

The Grover Spring Canyon road (which doesn't show on the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest Visitors map) crosses the Grover Spring wash immediately south of our spot. There are at least two more spots south of the wash crossing if you have enough ground clearance to deal with the edge of the wash. In addition, there is one easy to access spot on FR139 just south of Highway 260 that is out of sight of the highway but likely subject to some road noise.

We have 3 bars of Verizon 3G, 2 to 3 bars of AT&T Edge, and 3 bars of Verizon 4G with the Sleek amplifier and antenna deployed. The Grover Spring road looks like it could be real messy early in the spring when the ground is wet. No noise from the highway and we’ve only noticed two vehicles on FR139 in the past four days. We’ll stay a couple more days and leave when the black tank is full.
