East Coast Outing Representatives Bill & June Cox are already busy running events and welcoming participants to the Vein Mountain Outing at the popular LDMA Camp in North Carolina.
Vein Mountain LDMA Camp Caretaker John Boudreau and his wife, Abbi, were quick to offer me a warm welcome as I entered the camp and by all accounts the outing is off to a great start.
The camp is full of families and children having a good time.
Wil Wilcox, "The Nugget Man", has already set up shop at the camp, along with many other old-timers and familiar faces.

See you at the camp. I'll be the guy with the camera, notepad and Gold Fever cap. Yep, that's me on the left, copping a feel of a huge gold nugget, courtesy of "The Nugget Man", Wil Wilcox of California.
