If this is your first time on a long road trip, I can understand wanting to check out a lot of different climbing areas. However, driving around to that many places spread over that big of area is going to set you back quite a bit in gas.

Most of the ins and outs about avoiding rangers you are only going to learn by going to the specific area and meeting people.

Boulder is a neat area to check out, but it does make even Yosemite seem mellow by comparison. Be outgoing and friendly. If you meet someone on the road who lives in the Boulder area, at least maybe you could have a ranger-safe place to sleep in your vehicle.

Wild Iris/Sinks and Indian Creek are all easy places to hang out. You don't have to commute between climbing and sleeping (although groceries can be a long ways away). Joshua Tree you can commute outside the park everyday to avoid the rangers, but again, the gas will kill your limited budget.

I know some folks who would travel between JTree and RR every few weeks to avoid the 2 week max. Also it allowed them to change things up a bit.
