      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 .

Pretty amazing footage they pulled off. Discovery channel did a real nice job on this one. I will definitely keep my eyes open for the future IMAX film that will be put out in the near future that was put together by one of the guys that was with the crew this past summer. I still cant get over the destruction this thing did. My hear still sinks for all those involved.

Is this the same show where one of the guys died 2 weeks after filming one of the shows.

I was watching one of these storm chaser shows a few weeks ago and they let the copilot give the orders for his first tornado intercept. He nailed it and the tornado went right infront of them. Then in the end of the show they dedicate a piece to him stating that he died at his home from falling or something.

Wow that is one mean looking twister.

I remember driving up to Red Lake that day and kept looking at the radar on my phone to make sure we were driving around the storms. When we got to the camp ground, the folks parked next to us said they had to leave because their sons town was demolished by a tornado.

I just happened to stumble onto it last night while flipping channels. Wow! that was a great show. Amazing footage. That huge twister right there in front of them. Wow! Then to see the town ripped apart afterwards. Just heartwrenching to see. And then afterwards Mythbusters was on and they tested thier vehicles. Pretty cool that the TIV unit withstood 250 MPH winds while the dominator one simply slid without flipping.

I've DVR'd every show. The storm chaser that died was Matt, the reports he died from a botched suicide attempt.

It's amazing. On the show, when they nail getting inside a tornado, and he says it's the most amazing thing he's ever done, then within 2 weeks he's dead.

Apparently he suffered from depression.

I missed last nights show, I was sleeping. 35 hours of snowplowing will do that to a guy.

Only 6 more foreclosed properties to plow today then it sounds like start them all over again tomorrow. Complete opposite weather from the start of the thread.

    • First possum I've ever seen in my yard..
    •   Member of ADVRider. Rode with lots of guys on there. I just put out a feeler on here once in a while.
    • You ever check out www.thumpertalk.com Lots of guys in your area.
    • I am no expert either but putting my trust in the builder. Talking to him, there will only be enough lumber to screw the sheetrock to. There will be no 16" on center studwalls. He has done several like this with no problems. The "Gurts" are attached to the poles and you could saw the poles off at the bottom and move the whole building.
    • Like Leech said, it appears that a grant in aid trail is running through your area. I would urge you to contact the club president or another representative and try to work out a solution. They may be able to even re-route the trail to avoid your driveway but you will not know unless you engage in a civil discussion with a representative of the club. Just let them know you have concerns and see if an agreement can be had.    I would be surprised if the club doesn't have a landowners event every fall that you could attend and talk to club members as well to keep reminding them each year of your concerns.
    • Forgot this was a day game, missed it but happy we got the two points. We have been holding our spots and even have some games in hand on some other teams. If we can just keep this pace up we are in, but here is hoping we get hot towards the end of the year. Would be nice for a change. 
    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
    • So no sill plate for the walls on the perimeter then.  OK.     Again, not an expert so whatever your guys say and you’re comfortable with... I don’t know all your construction details. I - sandy County Is just that; sandy.  So it’s not too tough to get a good base.   My experience, as it relates to this, has just been based on building a 36x48 wood framed garage in Isanti County.  8 inch block on the perimeter to support 12 foot sidewalls of 2x6 construction.  My buddy that sold me the lumber said the project was only 200 feet short on interior walls from being a house.  After adding in the attic square footage it had more than my house.  Going with a pole building frame is the game changer.   Again, best of luck. It would be interesting to me to see the completed project.
