      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 don't even know what is sold in that price range? :-) The $12 - $15 igogs or fisheyes at gander I think work great.

The only thing I could recommend is to see if Costa Del Mar makes something in that price range. May be a bit high end...but they could make something $75 - $100...

I agree with the cheaper ones. I don't know how many times I've lost or broken expensive sunglasses. I bought a cheap gas station pair and haven't been able to get rid of them for 4 years now!

I agree with the Costa Del Mars. I've used them and they are nice.

You might want to check out Bolle sunglasses as they have some models with nice polarized lenses. You'll find them online in your price range, and I've had good luck with them.

I've got Costa del Mars and they are great. I don't think she's looking to spend quite that much.

One thing I have noticed since I've stepped up to good glasses, I am much more careful with them.

I'm a cheap guy too.

I have a brand new pair of Titanium Maui Jims sitting here that I've never worn due to the fact that I know I'll trash them.

I was a cheap sunglasses user because I was always concerned with breaking them, but now that I have a pair of Costas I'm in the same boat as RW. I'm very careful with them.

I second this. I found a nice pair of Bolle polarized for just under $100.

I have H20 Optics glasses- they have been great and I think were around $50. Good quality lenses and construction and they handle a beating. Try a search for them and they should come up. Good luck.

Check sierra trading post online. Many of the brands mentioned already are available at significant savings. You can find a real good pair in the price range you're looking for.

Natives were about the only brand I could find that would fit my big head without digging into the sides. AND - they have interchangeable lenses....which is nice.

I ordered a set from REI for $50. Not sure if they have them anymore....they retail most places for about 120 bones or more depending on model.

I had a pair of PolarEyes and you can get them at Cabelas. They are on the lower end of your price range but they are very nice. I lost my pair and I upgraded to Oakleys. I don't know why but I felt like a change. My current pair fits me like a glove, thats why oakleys are nice. lots of different shapes and sizes.

    • some people are bad apples that give the sport a bad name, I as a snowmobiler have respect for driveways. FYI driveway approaches are on the public right of way, you may not block them, or place anything that can injure someone. trail groomers actually do you a favor by knocking down the bank, to keep it level. unless your groomer was not well trained, they will not groom over your driveway.
    • If code allows post frame for residential construction then by design you don't need a block foundation. 
    • Perfect that awnsers my question. Why spend $250 when I could spend $150 on a new lazer bit and cuts faster, it’s more durable but still about same weight and a chipper but. Really a no brainer. What are you seeing for drilling time with that 8 inch lazer?
    • From my experience one of my only complaints with the Kdrill is how slow it drills. It more than gets the job done but my laser 8” is faster.
    • So I’ve always fished 8 inch holes but really why? Most Anything can fit through a 6 inch hole anyway. I was thinking maybe for next season of getting a 6 or 8 inch I drill and putting it on my 1.5hp solo. Right now it’s about 24lb which is light but with the k drill it would be lighter yet. My question is would I be getting any more speed out of a k drill vs regular SM chipper bit? And then I can invest in a nice Milwaukee fuel and there we go.
    • Hi there, new here. Found this place because of this older topic.  We are planning a pole barn home on a slab. This is the 1st one in our township and the inspector seems unsure about the requirements for the slab "foundation" and insulation. When we started last year the old inspector said if the poles are through the frost level (42") you can just lay down a flat 4" slab. The new inspector seems to think it needs a foundation. Not finding much info online for this specific build. Plan as of right now. 4" radon pea gravel and barrier, 4" rock, 2" foam, heat tubes, steel mesh with 4" concrete over that. Someone here know the county (Isanti) spec for something like this? Township overrules county.  Thanks.   https://talk.newagtalk.com/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=376864&DisplayType=nested
    • BB gun?  Hows that for a 1st post?   
    • Ahh. Thanks for your story PRO-V. That’s what I’m trying to avoid. Plus it’s about 400 feet of hose to get to the banks...
    • A couple years ago I just got done plowing my driveway with the wheeler. Along comes an adult snowmobiler with his kid following behind. Guy crosses driveway and stops on top of opposite bank. Then he guns his machine sending all the snow back in the driveway. This is not a trail, just random ditch riders. Well I was outside and saw him do it. I jumped in my truck and cut him off at a road crossing 2 blocks away. I jumped out and royally chewed his azz and told him what a bad example he was setting for the kid. I think he got the message. For awhile after that I sprayed water on the banks to freeze them. No respect, they wouldn't want you doing that to their driveway.
