      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 .

The North Face - Aguila 23 & 33 tents

Recommended Posts

I am looking at ordering a North face Aguila 23 two person, three season tent or an Aguila 33 three person, three season tent. They look like very nice tents having the mesh ceilings make them look comfortable during the summer plus a view of the night sky is a bonus. Has anyone use one of these tents, if so, are they worth the $?

I've generally found that North Face is over priced. Too many people (myself included) have come to know North Face of Abercrombie of the outdoor gear world.

From my experiences? Generally North Face makes a quality product but they are over priced. When I have been looking for gear North Face has something worth looking at but another company makes a slightly better product for a far better price.

And I write all of this as I sit here wearing a pair of North Face shorts. (The only reason i bought them was a super clearance)

I know that North Face stuff is usually over prices, but this tent has the specific design, especially with the open mesh top half for better air flow during the summer. Plus its better being able to fall asleep getting a view of the stars. If you know of any other kind of tent with the same features that can sleep 2 - 3 people, I would love to know the name and brand.

Just shop around a bit on the net. Put the product name into google and you can usually find a really good price.

There are alot of different 2 and 3 person, 3 season tents on the market today. Just depends what exactly you are wanting to which company you finally choose. Here's a link that I use when wanting to find the newest outdoor and remote camping equipment on the market. newest camping gear

What's nice is it gives also the price and places to buy from, also reviews on the product and gear.

Another tent that has the feature (looking at the stars) is made by Quest. I believe it's called the starlight...might want to double check that (model)but great quality product none the less. I use to have that tent when I lived in Flagstaff, AZ. It's also a two person tent. Perfect for yourself, dog and backpack! Good luck on your search.

I ended up ordering a North Face Aguila 23 tent off of [YouNeedAuthorization] about a month ago and have had the opportunity to use it and I must say that this is by far the best tent I have ever owned. The pole system keeps the tent sturdy and strong in higher winds and offers plenty of extra space for storage. I plan on using this tent frequently next year on mountain biking trips and especially for trout fishing. Thank all of you for the suggestion, but after reviewing other tentas, I found this one to be the best choice for me. Next thing I am looking to purchase is a good option for a spring/fall weather sleeping bag that is easy to stow.

Good to hear that you enjoyed the purchase of your new tent.

I have a 20 year old North Face tent, 3 person full season tent that is still going strong after all these years. Treat it well and store it clean and dry and it will last you many camping season's to come.

    • Well so much for the big storm around here. 
    • That's what it's all about right there. Father and son making memories.
    • When you sum up a season with those pictures, it’s hard for the Frozen Chosen to agree you had a terrible one.    VERY nice.   I can understand though, not getting to enjoy what’s there is almost worse than not having it at all!
    •   Don’t have find my phone turned on or whatever your particular phone’s location service is and your photos shouldn’t be geo tagged.   Sometimes when I get geo tagged text pics from others, I let them know.    I agree with Eyeguy, we’ve slanted just about every fish catching possibility our way and the internet forums are just another one of those tools.  But like a flasher for ice fishing, we’d hate to be without em anymore.  Everybody wants to know what’s going on.   But yeah, being careful with sensitive resources probably has led to less chat about specific lakes unless they’re the ones already being advertised on billboards.
    • A good way to wreck a lake is to put out "there is a hot bite" out on the internet.
    • Ufatz, Rockport is rebuilding, but they have a looooong ways to go. That’s actually what took up a good portion of my season this year. Lotsa people still need help, and it just didn’t seem right to be out chasing ducks when I could be helping people rebuild their lives. They’ll still be there next year Yes there’s still clouds of redheads. They’re too easy to kill. Problem was, those puddles love to hang out in the shallow marshes, and with the lowest tide I’ve ever seen, they were dry all week. Makes hunting real tough cuz they spread out in the big bays and it’s real hard to narrow down any concentration of birds
    • Do big bunches of redheads still hang out in the basin right in Rockport?:)   And how is poor Rockport looking these days? It really took a beating from the big storm. Didn't ever get around to hunting the area but spent two or three winters there a few years back. Lots of good fishing and pleasant weather most of the time. BUT it can get chilly!! Glad you had fun; it's always nice to see flocks of ducks even if you don't actually get a shot at them.
    • info speed, electronics, titanium spring bobbers, custom rods, inline reels, faster augers, plastic baits, sharper hooks.  fish dont stand a chance.   Speed of info probably the biggest factor. Pics on sites are great but cant share specific location or even the lake unless its a beast of a lake. I just heard last week that sometimes cell phone pics can be investigated to find gps location if a guy is knowledgeable in how to do it. Blurr out the background might not work before long. I think these type sites can still be good for tips but gotta be careful with location info. 
    • I had same challange. Went with a 12v temperature relay switch. Heater/Fans in my DIY wheelhouse now functions just like my home or RV forced air furnance. It comes with a small heat sensing probe i mounted on my upper air duct than set the on/off temperature so fans runs/stops when heat kicks on/off. Provides perfect comfort for $15.00. https://www.walmart.com/ip/bayite-DC-12V-Fahrenheit-Digital-Temperature-Controller-10A-1-Relay-with-Sensor/585224840?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=12524&adid=22222222227093022211&wmlspartner=wmtlabs&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=t&wl3=213210114658&wl4=pla-345493512458&wl5=9019533&wl6=&wl7=9019476&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=117430032&wl11=online&wl12=585224840&wl13=&veh=sem   Sensor under foil tape   Took photo when furnace was off. Temp range -40 to 230 f. Spare probe to right of controller, copper tube is thermostat, black button is pilot iginter.   Total set up with 4 speed auto fan switch.
