Then we headed back to camp and built a fire before retiring for the ...

... everywhere. We stopped for lunch in an RV Park by a little River just outside Mountain City, TN. We literally got picked up and carried away by Mosquitoes, just like the flying monkey scene from the wizard of Oz. Had to pack up and get out of there quick.
