      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 .

Well after this weekend I will be caught up on the stuff I had to get done. My sled is in the trailer ready to go and one way or another I am going to find some snow somewhere. I don't even want to think what a 2 year old sled with 200 miles on it is worth. And I have a 95 Jag and a 98 ZL 440 in near mint shape with low miles I'm keeping for vintage sled rides some day. LoonASea you up for a snowmobile trip in the near future? Like to go somewhere during the week to avoid some traffic and bumpy trails.

You guys may have to hit the UP to find some good snow after this?  Which I had some weekday time to go with.

We may get an inch of snow with this weather "cant call this a storm" The iron range is already reporting 7 inches of snow ,,, May have to hit the taconite and run to Ely 

 

 

Now the wait for temps to get above 0 with a cold snap behind this snow fall

Hey LAS, drove by your house Tuesday morning taking the sleds to RJ's, but all was quiet so didnt stop.

Both sleds in for recall work (gas tanks prone to crack and leak gas on the engine and cause a fire). Got called this morning, wifes sled was fine but my tank had a crack in it and they have to replace the whole works:crazy::crazy:.  Of course none in stock so won't be done til late next Friday.

Like you, I havn't been on here in quite some time, had a really slow day at work today so browsing many of the "old sites' I used to peruse often. 

Junior has B-ball games this and next Saturday, but I'm open the weekend of the 27/28 if a ride is in the works.  Or could maybe do a day trip next sunday if the sled is done.

Leech, we gotta figure out how to do this "retirement" gig so we can ride weekdays too :D:D

Poorly.

The days I could get out it was blowing 20+ and unfishable 99% of the time.   I can't tell you how many days I headed up 21st street to work shaking my head cause it was a perfect day to be out trolling.  And work was the worst I've ever had last summer so that didnt help.

 

I saw some nice pic's of your Isle Royale trip on GLA......soooooo jealous;)

How was your summer in the west end of the Superior?

How about giving my kid a high school diploma and a college degree in something useful so he can hit the workforce;)

 Once those two things are done, then I am done LOL:D

OK, OK.  He's only 15 but I can wish can't I.

Recall #17-724

2007-2009 Cats of various types.  About 20700 units total.    918"incidents" reported and 6 fires. No injuries reported:whistle:

A co-worker of mine got a notice in the mail about hers as an original owner.  I bought our two machines a year old from a resort out in Colorado thru a guy in the Cities so I'm not listed with Cat.

Wow, that is a pretty large failure rate!  Even though my sled I just picked up is like new with only 122 miles on it. It's a 2003 so I'm good. Thanks for the heads up.

 

I really hope we can get a bunch of people together for a ride sometime this winter yet! :)

I had to bring my 2008 in for that recall, I waited  till riding was about done for the year before I had it done. doesn't matter much now since I traded it off this season for my new machine that has a whopping 5 miles on it now, great timing for a new sled. hopefully it will get used plenty next weekend, its looking promising.

Leech just remember that Trainwreck feels like a bowling ball in your stomach when you head back out on the trail ,,, Thats fine if the trail is smooth ,,, a real B@tch if its kinda bumpy 

 

 I may head to Wisc if the snow heads east during this next snowfall
