The only thing I would say is why not wear snake boots or gaiters, at least in the warmer months. We have a camp a few miles past Sinnemahoning and my Dad was about 2' from stepping on one in the Spring a few years back. Now nothing happened during this encounter other than us snapping a few pics and moving along, but who's to say the next encounter will go the same way. We were miles from our vehicle when we ran into that snake and neither of us had snake boots or gaiters at that point. I'm not trying to cause a panic by any means, but to me wear the boots or gaiters for piece of mind.
