    Fairgrounds Hunt w/ Hockeyguy - 2 silvers

    Met up with Hockeyguy & another friend of ours at the old Fairgrounds. We hunted for just a few hours and enjoyed the warm day. Seems like Winter is final gone
    Ended the day with 1951 Rosie & 1338 Merc, and a very corroded IH... A good start for the year.. hoping I'll break last years mark of 133 silvers.

    Good to see that you are out hunting again.
    You did very well last year at the fair grounds, and this year is starting off very nicely.
    Great pair of dimes and an IH to boot.
    Congrats and best of luck passing 133 this year.

    Keep working that spot hard. I have a feeling it will keep giving the goods for a while.
