> When you find sites that are quite nice, mark their location somehow (on Google Maps, on paper, record the coordinates, write down what your odometer was at and be ready to do the math, or just remember it in your head).

I highly recommend What3Words, worldwide 10 foot resolution grid without resorting to lat/long coordinates.

After boondocking for a little over four years I have THIS stuff pretty much figured out. What I could use now is Very Detailed Post on Where to Find Hassle-free Places to Urban/Suburban Stealth Camp Along the Pacific Coast. Big Grin

That's actually coming. I have that post written on my Patreon account and I've started migrating those posts over to my blog because I don't like (putting them on) Patreon.

I won't have advice for the tricky parts of the California coast (where there aren't any big cities and just those tiny ones, many of which seem super strict about people parking on the streets at night). I imagine you won't really need the advice I have in this city focused post unless you've spent extremely little of your 4 years in cities

That seems to be only National Forests. I'm looking for one that shows at least the National Forests and BLM, and ideally ALL types of Federal and State land.

Called private property!

It will only be getting harder in years to come.

I'm thinking tow a little hybrid, commute into work, leave the "house" out in the hills.

And wait! There's more! A huge battery bank and powerful generator are included FREE!

This web based map system is difficult to use and flaky at times but when working, it has the info:

It is pulling the map data directly from government servers.

I've used that one too.... but have been looking for one that works better / is easier to use.

I use the Avenza map app. They make their money selling map downloads. However, MVUMs are free to download. The great part is that when you are within the area of the mvum, you show up as a blue dot. WAY better than trying to figure out where you are on a paper map. Requires a bit of planning while still in area with good signal.
