    We all had a GREAT TIME in October 2016 doing this so LETS DO IT AGAIN ! Lets' camp / mini-cabin at Milburn Landing State Park , on the historic , beautiful Pocomoke River, near Pocomoke City on the Eastern Shore !

    "Tucked away on Maryland's lower eastern shore, this park is well known for cypress swamps that border the Pocomoke River. The river originates in the Great Cypress Swamp in Delaware and flows southwesterly 45 miles to the Chesapeake Bay. The park features hiking, biking, boating and fishing opportunities. There are two distinct areas: Millburn Landing, on the north side of the Pocomoke River on Route 364, and Shad Landing, on the south side of the river off Route 113. It is a 25-minute drive between the two areas of Pocomoke River State Park.This popular park also offers camping, camper cabins, boat launch, boat rentals, flat water canoeing, picnic areas, playgrounds, picnic shelters, and a swimming pool."

    Based on historic data we will likely NOT need cold water gear (usually REQUIRED with water temps , 60 degrees) , but please stay tuned. Of course, one should avoid cotton and bring a dry change of clothes in case of a capsize.

    *********PLEASE review these excellent "cold water gear/ clothing " articles before paddling. ***********

    "There are three rules to remember when dressing for cold weather:

    No cotton.
    It soaks up water and holds it against your skin, leaving it worthless as an insulator and heavy as a layer. A worthless, worthless fabric in the water.

    Layers help trap heat and fend off water. Remember "wick, warmth, and weather" as you arrange your layers: light wicking fabrics first, then warm insulating sweaters or fleeces, and finally an waterproof outer layer to protect you from the elements.

    No cotton; seriously."

    Kayaking involves known and unanticipated risks which may include, but are not limited to, pain, suffering, physical injury, death and economic or emotional loss, which participants may suffer during, or travelling to and from this activity. By voluntarily participating in this activity, participants acknowledge these risks and agree to hold harmless WatersEdge Kayak Club Meetup Group and its Organizers and leaders against any and all claims, suits or actions of any kind for any damages, liabilities or compensation brought by the participant or anyone acting on behalf of the participant.

    Participants must be responsible for their own safety and should educate themselves through instructional courses about safety, rescue techniques, navigation, and protection from the elements and weather (both hot and cold). Participants should stick with the group to enhance their own personal safety and follow instructions from the trip leaders. Following the above guidelines will help make kayaking the safe enjoyable outdoor endeavor it should be.
