As this seems like a slow HP news time, FYI. Tyrrell county is a down east NC county, flat as a board. There are 3 highpoints (by highest contour).Two are fairly simple but one in the southwest corner of the county is a 4 square mile area of impenetrable pocosin. See http://www.cohp.org/nc/Tyrrell_1.html. Thanks to a massive wildfire it MAY be possible to walk this area without going insane. Because this is pocosin it is organic rich and could smolder a long time. I didn't give this fire a second thought after hearing about it a few days ago until I smelled smoke this am. According to Mapquest the fire is about 180 miles due east. See http://www.nifc.gov/fire_info/nfn.htm
