      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 .

Ely to Tresle Inn

Recommended Posts

Family is thinking about going to Ely over presidents weekend, wondering how far via sleds it is to the Tresle Inn from Ely?

Im looking for time vs miles, I realialze it depends on how fast you drive but ball park would be great.

we have some time to get more snow before we head up, but does anyone have currant trail/snow conditions?

thanks.

Well since no one else is giving any ideas. I would think on a nice day with the family making stops at outhouse and warming houses it maybe about a 2.5 to 3 hrs there. But the last time I did it was a full blown blizzered at night and took us about 4hrs since we could not even see the trail ;)

Its about 65 miles (I know you said time but.....) from Ely to the Trestle.  I would say leech is about right on for a nice family ride.  Its one of my favorite sections of trail, never know what you're gonna see along there.  Seen moose, fisher, ermine, deer and lots of wolf tracks in the past.

Xplorer do you remember if the Crooked Lake lodge still sells gas? I'm not sure where MCI will be able to top off to head back up to Ely unless they head down to the Shore. I don't think there's any gas in Isabella the last I remember in the winter?
