Preview: Is Your Campsite Secure?

I love relaxing around a campfire. The peace and quiet of the woods and fresh air is hard to beat. Even with all the relaxing attributes of any campground or makeshift campsite, you still need to be vigilant when it comes to your safety and that of those in your group.
