Time to fly the Rainbow Flag! Although we had to go up the mountain to the main Lodge to get phone and internet, we had a good time hanging out at the pool and meeting lots of men at this gay campground in northeast Tennessee. It wasn't a good weekend weather-wise, so we also took time to visit Knoxville, TN and Asheville, NC.
We explored downtown Knoxville, had lunch and stopped by the alma mater of Ron's College friend, Joe, who did graduate work at The University of Tennessee. The campus was beautiful.
It was quickly evident why so many people have been in love with Asheville. We visited our friends Lyn and Alex. Lyn runs a successful real estate company, Bulldog Real Estate, and has acquired several properties that he's cleverly renovated including his own beautiful house. We were invited to a low country shrimp boil at a fellow (Naples, FL) realtor's amazing house. We had a great time with fun people and a fantastic meal.
