I used the links and read all of the trip reports about your exploration. I think have several reports is great to completely cover the area that one can paddle. Thanks a lot for all the details.
I have used surveyers tape to mark my trail when I wanted to make sure I got out of the cypress swamps in Ocheesee Pond. I took them down as I came back out. Another trip leader put up yellow and black stripped tape, which still remains in spots, and when I see it, I know I am on the right trail.
Of course there are other fishermen that mark spots, so I try to tie the tape in a unique way that I can recognize.
