      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Guys, this weekend, I need to haul 6 sheets of moisture resistant drywall up to the cabin.  The problem is that the tailgate will need to be down to fit the sheets, and other items needed.  Do you think it will be a concern if snow gets on the sheets?  I'm guessing since it's going to be butt asrse cold that the snow will/should stay in a solid state.

Tarps, plastic sheeting etc to cover. They also may hook you up with a damaged sheet of plywood they refer to as a cover sheet that you can lay on top to weigh it down and protect it. Otherwise a few sand bags etc.

Since you're purchasing paper faced moisture resistant  rock you need to protect it regardless of the length of hanging out the back. They do make a couple of different paperless products (lighter than cement board) if your still concerned in the long run.

I would be more worried about road spray than snow.   How about that stretchy plastic that comes on a roll like they strap stuff with?  It sticks to itself and seems like it would be a good choice.   Or..... ta da.  those bags they sell to put mattresses in.  

(these come in various sizes)

    • seen a robin yesterday...  
    • I work nights, so don't see any weekday games, but of the weekend games I have seen, tonight was the best of the year.
    • I’ll second the Hustler recommendation.  I have a fastrak 54” and couldn’t be happier. Put about 350hrs on the last 4 years. Had a 42” JD before this one, and darn near cut my mowing time in half. If you got the hustler route, get the front flex springs.... they ar worth the money
    • I just don't like the look for some reason. I also have a full mount and went with a closed mouth. 
    •   I have heard that from most Taxidermist.  But, it's really cool for the Nonhunting relatives and their kids when they come over for Holidays to see the teeth!  
    • Thanks for the input, my lawn is very flat just a ton of maple trees! 
    • Off to the dehydrator this venny goes!! Num num!
    • I got a hustler raptor SD last year with a 54" deck. I cut about 2 acres also and my mowing time has be cut down by half. I chose to go with a 54 instead of a 60 beside cause of uneven ground and road ditch. zero turns don't side hill very well so if you have hilly ground I would try one out. I used two of my neighbors one was a john deere witch I like a lot and a country clipper  I didn't like that one.  It had a joy stick that controlled the drive  I thought it was very touchy mowed my yard twice with it      
    • Thats not a natral pose for a black bear leech 
    • Well the 42” 14 year old craftsman LT1000 is heading to the hunting camp so I need a new one for Home. I cut about 2 acres with lots of tree so a zero turn only makes sense, looking 52 - 60” deck and have about a 5K budget to work with. Ariens ikon has me intrigued but also looking at a couple used stand up Wright’s with less than 200 hrs. Also looking at the z series. Thoughts?
