Far from civilization. Boondocks refers to the working-class, lower-class part of a town, so be out in the boondocks means away from comfortable living. (Compare to the Wrong side of the tracks.)

“Going on the job interview was weird, the taxi took me ou in the boondocks, but sure enough there was the factory.”
