Found this shed while at Fort Mccoy WI last weekend. Being late in the summer, its still in pretty good condition.

That is surprising you found anything this late in the year.

Were you out looking for them?

I just finished a 12 year career in the WI National Guard last weekend. I was out in the woods of Mccoy training with the guys, and damn near tripped over it. So finding this seemed kinda like a 'getting out of the Army gift'.

Congrats on your "retirement" Now look at all the time you will have to hunt sheds! :D

Thanks for your service
