August 26th, 2006 - Wabash River Outing
The outing went well, though attendance was sparse due to the inclement weather. Us die hard prospectors were able to endure gloomy skies and a brief thunderstorm to recover some of the precious yellow metal. Everybody who stayed got a little gold and had a good time. Hopefully our next outing will be under sunny skies and our riffles packed with gold!
