In this week’s edition of RV Travel newsletter, boondocking expert Bob Difley cautions about improperly extinguished campfires.
“With the dry seasons approaching, and with the image of the horrendous wildfires raging through Texas, it is imperative that all boondockers take extra precautions that their fires are out before leaving their campsite,” writes Difley.
“Pour water on your fire, then feel all parts of the fire to make sure there are no hot spots. Then pile dirt over your coals for an extra measure of safety.”
