Antietam Creek is always cool It's great on a sunny day but on a cool clammy day with wind rain and no Sun you can be miserable if you are not dressed properly. Worse if you flip and swim!!!  Make sure to check the weather report; dress for the air temperature and wind [15 to 20MPH equles chilly] throughout the whole day. And make sure you have an outter layer that is wind and rain proof. A big plastic trash bag will work if you dont have rain type gear.


Rule of thumb. If the airTemp and water Temp equal 120 degrees you need special clothing. Fleece, wet suit etc.


Bring your meds, food, water, shoes that lace up,  gloves are nice if your hands are tender,  and most of all bring a sense of humor.and the stuff in the below crib sheet.
