    This is really easy, but potentially missable.

    When you first meet Zoe in the trailer park, you'll have to either rent a trailer for $25/$50 or sleep for free in some cardboard. I opted for the $25 trailer and Zoe woke me up in the middle of the night to hang out - you're lead up some rocks to a campfire where she is sitting.

    Here, if you look at the campfire, you'll have the option to blow the fire - this unlocks the achievement. I would do this before answering Zoe, just in case it locks after a certain point in the conversation.

    This scene might also appear if you opt to sleep for free in the cardboard, so will update if anybody goes that route and can confirm.

    **EDIT** - Thanks to VIGOR MORTIVORE for confirming that this scene does also appear if you opt to rest for free in the cardboard.

    GamePadZebbyThis meeting with Zoe occurred for me, i opted to sleep on the cardboard. I miss3d the opportunity; do scenes not repeat at all? I've only done one border cross so wouldn't mind clearing save data

    Mr Funman@GamePadZebby I never saw a repeated scene during my playthrough - even though you do multiple runs, you seem to always get new scenes/areas - that was my experience anyway. If you want to restart and avoid a whole new playthrough, I would do it now, but bare in mind that this particular Zoe scene might not appear in the same place next time round.

    GamePadZebby@Mr Funman thank you for clarification 😊 I'll remove the save the next time I play, seems like the better option to do now rather than have to later with no guarentee of when I'll experience that scene either way

    Once you reach the trailer park (could be at any point in your play through). You will meet Zoe, she will be arguing with someone and you can intervene.

    Afterwards, you will need to find a sleep spot. Either a cardboard bed or a stay at a trailer ($25 or $50). Regardless of which you choose, Zoe will approach you and wake you up in order to go with her to a camp fire.

    As soon as you sit down, you can look at the fire and an option to “Blow the Fire” will appear.

    Do this and the achievement will unlock.
