      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 .

new law

Recommended Posts

you can not use your ATV in any wetland, including your own, or you will get a gross mistomenor (SPELLING).

so what is clasified as a wetland?, if there is lots of rain, and you muddie up your own driveway, is that considered a wetland?

I can see this law being challenged in court many times.

If some yehas are riping up a wetland and riping up the cattails, then I like the law.

I don't think this is a new law, but if it is then is it illegal to drive on a lake?

I think most wetlands are classified as such and landowners would be able to look it up at the county offices.

I believe there's a description of what contitutes a wetland on the DNR site. You'll still be able to ride on frozen lakes in the winter time. Wet driveways are ok as well. wink

I don't think this is a new law. I know it has been illegal to drive through wetlands for as long as I've owned my ATV, which is only about 5 years so my history is not very old.

The only exception that I am aware of is that my AG permit does allow me to access my wetlands for farm purposes but I am also obligated to keep my footprint at a minimum. An example might be if I have a fence running through a wetland, I might be able to use my ATV to carry materials and tools along the fence when making repairs.

Wetlands are very well defined by state law and should have been spelled out for you in the statute if you looked it up.

Those wetlands have been marked and documented by surveys for many years and include historical high water areas. It should all be contained in state and county plat books that document the make up of soil types. Wet driveways are certainly not considered wetlands.

    • The building codes are really very important in order to keep the property safe. We need to upgrade the house acoording to these building codes.
    • And Del says ya can eat as many as ya want now!!!     
    • great cheap treat those smoked eggs.  
    • I actually prefer Honeycrisp, because of the sweet/tart flavor. Sweet tango ain't bad either. The others get TOO mushy and seem to lose flavor. But, it's a personal preference. Someone'll whine about there are better baking apples.  Made my apple roast the other day with the Honeycrisp, but put it in the crockpot instead of the oven. Came up with this 6-7 yrs ago.  And there's even a picture of it, since words give you so much difficulty, leech.            Reb's  Apple- pork roast


        One boneless 2-3 lb Pork Butt Roast Two cups  Fresh Apple Cider Rosemary Seasoned salt Black pepper to taste 4 oz Cinnamon Apple Sauce (These are the “Snak Pak” size cups) One  large Yellow Onion, sliced thin              Marinate the roast in the cider in a Zip-Loc bag, in the fridge, for 6-8 hours, turning frequently. Place roast in a greased baking dish, with some of the marinade. Sprinkle liberally with seasonings and lightly with the Rosemary.  Place thin layer of onions on top. Pour apple sauce over top. Put in a 300* oven for 45 mns to one hour, uncovered.  Cover and cook  for30- 45 mns- longer or until meat thermometer registers 155-160*. Do not overcook. Let sit covered for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!  
    • @RebelSS, do you recommend any specific type of apples?
    • I forgot to put in the segment winners Spring        Juneau4 Summer     Henry's Heroes Playoff        BlackLundProV
    • Well quit hijacking the thread!!! we'll find someone serious sooner or later!
