    Back to the Woods Today - 1943 WLH

    I went back to the woods in the park yesterday where I did so well last weekend. I spent about 2-1/2 hours out there yesterday afternoon and the weather continues to be amazing, it was sunny and 50 degrees!

    Thanks everyone! This half must have been dropped in 1943! Definitely the best half I have ever found.
    Here are some better pics.
