      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 .

Thermacell Mosquuito Repellent

Recommended Posts

Yes, I own two. I cannot say that they smell as I have used it for archery hunting and no issues with the deers nose. Thats a tough nose to beat.

Overall, I would not go fishing in the morning or evening on the ribver without it.

We also use it on the patio.

They also have an earth scented repellent pad now if you're at all worried about having a bad scent around from the original pad.

If you're also interested, they make a piece that snaps over the front grill and you can apply your favorite scent to a different pad and it heats, supposedly making it stronger. I have a good friend of mine that used it to go bear hunting and honey to the pad to do a honey burn.

i got it at gander mt the appliance was 24.99 the 4 pack refill 19.99 and the holster was 9.99 so total of $55 i am hoping it will last through bear and archery deer seasons without having to get any more refills for it.

Each pad usually will last 3-4 hours. From what I've found the pads will loose a little effectiveness after the 3rd hour, but will still repell most of the bugs.

My brother-in-law, who thinks he knows everything, mocked me incessently when I started using mine on the Fourth of July. He thinks its a big gimmick. I tried to explain to him a few times how it worked and he just shook his head. Then when one mosquito came near him, he really gave me grief. I just ignored him like usual but I get a kick out of it since he's carried on before about how well Citronella candles work. Hello, same concept except a lot better and more effective.

Keep an eye out for sales at that big Fleet place they run from time to time. I got a super deal on the 4 pak refills there this spring.

The bugs haven't even been close to what they were last year, so I haven't been using up my supply all that much.

I would not even consider sitting in astand or a blind without one early in the season.

Wife was even impressed at our latest campfire when she was going to go in due to the bugs, until I broke out the Thermocell, she decided to stay a bit longer.

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews
