My fiancee and I love to go camping in the Chattahoochie National Forest, located in the North Georgia Mountains.
Our tent's ceiling is mesh screen, some nights you have to put on the rain fly cause the stars are so bright they keep you up.
Here is a goody's powder for that headache!
BTW, that's what that is over my head in #3 . . . a rain fly. Some would say it's made of tinfoil.
Don't know why but your tale of the Chattahoochie reminds me of one of Burt Lancasters's best . . Local Hero.
