Our road trips in the Pacific Northwest often take us through the boondocks. It’s important to note that the boondocks aren’t unique to our neck of the woods; they’re just about everywhere.
According to the dictionary, “The Boondocks is an American expression from the Tagalog word bundók. It originally referred to a remote rural area, but now, is often applied to an out-of-the-way area.”
We knew we were in the boondocks during a recent stop at a rest area. When I went to dry my hands, this is what I saw:
I pressed the button and got nothing. Zip. Zilch. Nada.
I smacked the button and voilà! Hot air.
When was the last time you were in the boondocks?
