Andy has become quite irritable of late and he finally agrees with Barney's suggestion that he take a week's holiday and relax. He plans on sitting at home and just catch up on some reading but the calls never stop and Barney - with more than a bit of help from temporary Deputy Gomer - seems to be getting into trouble right and left so he finally decides to go off into the woods for a bit of camping. Back at the jail, Barney and Gomer soon find themselves caring for a prison escapee in their custody who has little trouble getting away from them. It's left to Andy to resolve the situation.
Did You Know?
Several times throughout this episode, Andy is shown reading a National Geographic magazine. The magazine cover features the old black and white print format without any photo, but the magazine had featured cover photos ever since the July 1959 issue. Since this episode takes place in 1964, the magazine Andy is reading must have been at least 5 years old by that time. See more
