      Folks: On Saturday, January 6, 2007, the weather for Shepherdstown
      calls for a clear day with the temperature reaching 66 degrees! The
      upper Potomac River water level downstream from our paddle (at the
      Harper's Ferry gage) is currently at 4.5 feet and lowering, which
      will make it great for Saturday. The wind will be slight, and, of
      course, the river is protected from both sides by vegetation and
      hills. The sun will rise at 7:32 AM, and set at 5:03 PM.

      You are all most welcome to join us on this non-sponsored peer kayak
      trip. Please meet in the parking area at the Shepherdstown Boat Ramp
      in West Virginia this Saturday at 10 AM. This is a relaxing
      flatwater trip, and there is no pressure on anyone on this leisurely
      and scenic paddle. Please dress appropriately. Also, bring water
      and a snack.

      The current therein is very gentle. We will go up-river for four
      miles, take a break, and then return down-river for four miles, and
      the trip should last about four hours. On this beautiful stretch of
      the Potomac, one can go for many miles and see nothing but the
      splendor of nature.

      Here are the directions for the trip's meeting point:

      From Frederick, take Rt. 340 West (which will take you from MD
      through VA for a spell and finally into WV over the Potomac and the
      Shenandoah Rivers), then turn right at Rt. 230, then go over
      Rattlesnake Run Creek into Shepherdstown, then turn right on North
      Princess Street, and go until it ends. You are on the city-owned
      public boat ramp; stop before you get to the water.
