    Nope, I just kind of make it up as I go along, but have been in Cumberland, where the fishing was quite fine.

    Drove a paddlewheel riverboat across it from the Ohio to the Gulf once. Looked like a very nice place to cruise in a sailboat. Don't know how reliable the wind is. Plenty big and new enough to not be so crowded by development as many others.

    Maybe it is 1600 square miles, or 160 square miles. 16 square miles would attract me for a day of poking around.
