As bad as you've been told, the reality is probably worse... It was bad when I was living in VA six years ago...and had been getting worse... so I can't imagine how bad it is now.

I still think I might go check it out at least once, to see for myself - I mean, it's a very big lake, so I'm wondering how bad could it really be?

But yeah, ultimately, the Bay is my goal, so maybe I should just start looking for the nearest, best access points.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
