This track is far worse than the Dismal Swamp that I went through. The difference is; at the Dismal Swamp, bears and coyote have trails all thru out my journey from Suffolk down Chesapeake down the north west river . This area in Bertie,NC; is all thorns of all kinds . With no paths than beaver and nutria, no birds, no raccoons, but full of cottonmouths . The first three days i had five cottonmouths come out of the water and show me their mouths and try to run me away and i stood my ground .
