      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Photos from the Stategic Air & Space Command Museum

Recommended Posts

This place is the most awesome aviation museum I have ever seen, need to go back since it takes just abour an entire day to absorb it all. Its more like a major visual overload. My brain is still trying take it all in. My son to.Even the wife who could care less about anything related to planes.

Still have more photos to upload but need to go through them all first.Was a rather dark place for pictures and many did not turn out.

The bomb bay of the B-36 is AWESOME.

Also found a store right across from the hotel we are staying that sells Indian Motorcycles. This store has the most awesome hand built bikes made.Prices also reflect that status.Average retail price for one of those 400 bikes built per year is over $30,000. Just a dream for me to be able get pictures of them. Store manager said go ahead and show it off. Been a slow year for sales so far.

Nice slide show of the museum!!! I was at the museum 15 years ago when it was over at Offutt AFB. It appears that they have restored, & cleaned up the aircraft which is great to see. They were all outside before exposed to the elements.

Not sure how many years the new Museum has been open, but many of the planes in there were in dire need of dusting like the SR-71 in the entry area. But the way they have them hung, it would take some serious scaffolds or harnesses to clean them off. Was amazing how many bus loads of people were there to. Place was packed for a Monday morning.

I was there shortly after it opened. That was at least 15 years ago. Actually I was going to Offutt TDY when they were moving the planes to the new location. There are a lot more planes in there now as well. The SR71 was the hilight of the tour for me though. I saw it fly once when I was stationed in the Philippines. Once it landed it was in the hanger and heavily guarded very soon after it landed. Thanks for sharing! Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

    • Thanks. I decided to go with my gut, and ordered medium light action 8'6" Depthmaster rods. Spent some time trolling with them the other day, and I think they'll be fine. Just gotta remember to be careful with the larger fish around the boat when netting. Now if I could just better understand seasonal locations/presentations for my local walleye, I'd be all set! Trolled for 4.5 hrs without so much as a nibble yesterday. Trolled various cranks and harnesses the entire time, at different depths/speeds (1.0-1.5 mph with harnesses, and 1.8 -2.4 with cranks), hoping to make contact with one. I did find the Precission Trolling app to be pretty darn accurate with my dive curves though. So that was refreshing ... :-)
    • Nice bird! After my uneventful day Sat I gave Sunday a break Going out Monday morning to see If I can tag one.
    • Just me, or is 7:15 odd for birds to fly up to roost? 2 just flew up 75 yds out.
    • Congrats Donbo. Great looking bird.  
    • Way to go Ryan, and Dad. Can't wait to see the pics. Congrats
    • Well good weekend in the woods! Never got a bird in range! Will be back out! Nice Donbo!!!
    • Good job Wally, always love to see your early season successes.  Nice bird AS!  Long season ahead with no tag in the pocket huh?
    • Good job guys! Great start to the season.
    • Totally agree with you featherslayer. I have a bud who will be down May 2. Just as much fun calling for him and figuring strategy as shooting one myself. More fun actually.
    • Very disappointing season so far. Getting swept by Tampa Bay is unacceptable! No reason to believe we won’t get swept by the Yankees either. 4 game series against the twins could be exactly what Giancarlo Stanton needs to break out of his slump.
