Uncle Bob's Travels

Places I've hung out in, sometimes briefly.

Caryville Dragon

The Caryville TN dragon, the last reminder of the Monster Fireworks operation that once was located here (on Hwy 116).  The dragon overlooks I-75 and once had red lights for eyes.
Then, there was a tragedy.  The story is here.

A Dollar General store now sits where Monster Fireworks used to be.  According to anecdotal sources, the dragon dates from the early 80s.
