Out in the boondocks

The boondocks is an American expression that stems from the Tagalog word bundok. It originally referred to a remote rural area, but now it is often applied to an out-of-the-way city or town considered backward and unsophisticated. The term is a derivative of several different languages that all mean roughly the same thing - a rural area. You can read about those different languages and their contributions here.
