      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 .

Contact lenses while going for camping

Recommended Posts

Is there anybody here who loves camping? I am crazy about camping, and would manage to find time for it on every vacation. But, I cannot enjoy the scenery to the maximum because I'm suffering from myopia. I am lazy to carry glasses to the camping site. I have bought a new pair of contact lenses from an eye clinic in Edmonton. Is it safe to use contact lens during camping? Do you people carry glasses while going on camping? Is it safe to wear lenses for the whole day? Please give some genuine reply.

I wear soft contact lenses most of the time.  I have worn them camping in Quetico park and the Boundary Waters canoe area.   They work fine.  Just be careful to wash your hands before handling them, bring a spare pair or two, and also backup glasses.

I wear mine like 12 hours or a little more.  They are the daily wear, replace monthly type (acuvue).   There are also disposable lenses you throw away each day, and ones you can wear for weeks before taking them out and replacing them. 

I have been satisfied with my daily wear lenses while camping.  

You might want to have something over your eyes like sunglasses or safety glasses while walking in the woods or chopping or something where you could get hit in the eye.

LOL, Del gets suckered by all the spam posts just like he is getting suckered by Trump. :D

 

Original post was not spam.  You do know what spam is, right (besides mystery meat in a can)?  

 

I take posts, even from newbies, at face value.   Now, what is the point of your post?

The original post was the definition of spam. Do you know what spam is?

Forum spam consists of posts on Internet forums that contains related or unrelated advertisements, links to malicious websites, trolling and abusive or otherwise unwanted information.

 

That post was submitted as an attempt to gain a "link" from this site to some eye clinic page. The purpose is to gain links for page search engine optimization. I'll be happy to fill you in on it if you want to know more.

I ignore the links unless relevant.  The post certainly was relevant.  So far as I know the link wasn't to a malicious page, trolling, or abusive, or unwanted.  

 

Paranoia runs deep.  Into your mind it will creep.  

 

And you go posting almost two months after the fact.  

 

All you need is a meme in your post and you would be doing your thing.

You obviously know nothing about internet marketing.

So, what is the marketing hook to this thread?   Getting clicks for some place in Edmonton?   Then it was a poor job. 

 

No not clicks.

 

Search engines like google try to determine how much authority your site has on a subject. Lots of links pointing from other sites with related keywords tells google that those other sites are linking your site because it has authority. The more of those good links you have the better your site will rank. 

 

It is considered a "black hat" SEO tactic that could get your site penalized and de-ranked if Google catches on to what you are doing. The problem is it is probably not the site owner who is doing it. Did you notice the broken english? A lot of page owners don't know how to do the work of search engine optimization so they hire that out. The cheapest way to hire it out is off shore, usually someone in India. They take your money, get your site ranking well for a while but when Google figures out why it is ranking, it gets knocked down in the rankings.

 

In other words, it is spam.

OK, it is spam.   So the whole point was to get the link on posted on  hso somewhere so Google would think that meant something? 

 

OK, far out.

Yeah, your right again as usual. How on earth could I ever misconstrue this as sarcasm?

    • 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.
    •   Didn't say you would.    
    • Lol Leech-I don’t remember saying I was going to block the driveway with logs or wire. They will begin hitting the 4x4’s beneath there that have been there to keep cars from driving on the grass. Not my deal. I was only looking for some guidance on if I’m overreacting or if there should be som me]angers employee. So, ya, like everything else, it’s a lack of manners and I’m not crazy...yet. 
    • Just had a call with the builder and the concrete guy I am working with. Neither said they would "waste" concrete on thickening the edge unless there were plans to add on to the structure at a later date. The builder said no amount of concrete on the edge will help the building stability. He says if it moves its his fault in building it. There will be no weight on the outside edge of the building, worst thing that could happen would be erosion outside the building.
    • Had looked into the panels and they pretty much doubled the initial cost of the structure. I could spry foam the entire wall cavity for less $ and have close to the same thing.
    • Most of the moving on restrictor plates is done by changing the air flow around the car being passed with no or very little contact.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week, 

      Sunset Lodge
