      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 .

I hope it's better than it shows on the web. 14 miles????? Pine center is also open, and wouldn't be surprised if Solana opens (40 miles)

I'm almost positive I'm open for the 17th. If you guys say it's worth the drive, I'll be there. I can fit 4 atv's on my trailer. I think I would head through St. Cloud anyways, right?

Yes, you would head thru St. Cloud unless you took HWY 25 thru Foley.

You have never ridden Spider before? There are well over 14 miles of trails, I am unsure why the site says that. There is plenty of good riding to fill a day or more of riding.

The 17th seems like it will be a good fit thus far for myself and others.

Nope, never rode there. I always rode private land near my cabin until my buddies decided they would rather spend their money at the bars then on an atv. Been on my own since.

I have graduation parties that weekend.

Roofer, mark down that Sunday. You'll be getting some mail in the next few days.

Yeah, for sure there is more than 14 miles. Maybe that's the atv only trails, not including multi-use. It's a fun trail to ride, definitely a full days worth.

How much of the trails are big enough for a side by side? A guy on another site may come with, but is asking about bringing his side by side instead of his atv's. Would it be worth it, or is there alot of two track trails?

LEP, you talking about memorial weekend Sunday?

I think the majority are class 2 trails but if my memory serves me correct a lot of the fun ones were 2 track. It would be a toss up.

I personally wouldn't want to run in a sidexside but about 50% of the trails are open to them. We had one in our group last year and they ended up trailering it about half way thru the day and opted for a standard atv.

Thanks for the info.

I invited a few from the nyroc site.

Looks like most of the trails are open now. Can't wait to try out spider lake. We should have a good group again for this one. ;\)

Also, I looked at my trailer again and it's only rated to haul 2400 lbs. So I can only haul 3 on it I guess.

There is a possibility of one or both of my uncles coming, and also my girlfriend with possibly a new machine... we may do some "looking" this weekend. I also mentioned it to a few others so it should be a great time.

Good to hear the move went good! You'll have plenty of time to unpack when it gets miserably hot in a month or so.

I wish it would have gone better. Our closing got pushed back a week and a half!

    •   Oh Shut Up Mike!!!!!!!!!!    Looks like a great time. Thanks for the Hope there is still white on this planet!
    • What the heck is everyone up to? I haven't checked in, in a while, figured I better throw leech a few pictures of some snowmobiling...... hasn't been much going on in our neck of the woods with the wind blowing everything into the grass or woods.   Anyone else been out west yet?   7 of us shot out to Cooke City a week ago ( Jan 10 ) and rode the BearTooth Pass / Top of the World Wyoming on Thrus, then headed for Cooke City Montana to ride Friday and Saturday. Met up with 3 more and we had one of the best deep powder rides ever!   Always a lot of work when you ride in the deep stuff but it's something you always wait for, got a good work out from getting stuck ALOT and helping out the others too. I believe the snotel site topped 102" of snow ( they actually topped 100" around new years too ) which is early for them to get that much snow but not all places out west are getting snow, our friend from Colorado said one of the ski resorts out there was only 25% open ...... good thing we didn't plan on going to Colorado riding this year!   I didn't bring a camera with so I had to rely on my buddies to supply a few pictures.   There were some meadows and bowls that were STUPID Deep with powder, dang near didn't make it out, had to be an easy 3 to 4 feet of powder back in them areas...... it was AWESOME!!!!   When you see this much snow in town, it's going to be GREAT up top!                        
    • Some of my cam pics this year. Still showing bucks with antlers in the last week or so. 
    •   Thanks for the offer but I'm not sure how much it will get used. If he shows and interest to get back out there then we'll look for a better solution.    And it was just old scrap plywood from the garage!  Geez you wood guys really get Grainy! 
    • you would swear it was homecoming week in all of our local schools here in rural central mn!  Most schools (businesses alike)here had Vikings day today.  I like everyone older than 30 has dementia and everyone younger doesn't understand our (vikes)history!   I will just sit and live on hope.
    • A season has always been a slam dunk for me.  Season B I am 2 for 3.  Seasons c-the end I am 2 for 2, young birds however. Weather is variable throughout, but i have killed birds in a heavy snow storm, rain and wind throughout the years.  Just scout and hunt, birds will tell you what to do if you listen.   Sometimes they lie though!   Pick the season that best allows you the time to be out the most.  Time in the woods and fields will equal the most success, this year and years going forward.
    • I would never subject my precious Cherry wood to that type of Carnage. But seriously- if you are going to use that thing I have a lowrance ice kit that I can send you if you want to cover s and h.  And if you have the older connector( not blue) I have an ice ducer I'll throw in for free. Just please, for the live of God promise you will never do something like that to wood ever again.
