      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 .

Question on enclosed trailers

Recommended Posts

I want to get an enclosed trailer to park on my hunting land to store my ATV, etc. The last bit of road into my cabin however, has a couple of nasty bends around big trees, so I doubt I could pull one in with my truck. So my question is, what is the tongue weight on an empty 6x12 enclosed trailer? Would I be able to hitch it to my ATV and pull it that way the last 50 yards? Would a two-axle trailer work this way? (I don't know if they sell two-axle ones in 6x12.)

Thanks for any help.

Just wondering, why not just build a small shed? Or is it because of permits, etc? If that is reason, I understand totally. If not, a trailer is quite a bit more expensive that the lumber and hardware of even a bigger shed.

But to answer your question, yes there are dual axle in that size, but mainly for load capacity, something it doesn't seem like you would need to worry about if you are ging to leave it there.

If you do get trailer I would recommend making sure it has the rounded roof rather than (cheaper) flat roof, for water run off and ice reasons.

....ahhh, unless you will be towing it home for winter, then I understand why trailer.

Also, if you have it balanced right (i.e. guy standing on rear door...) I bet you could pull it in there with a garden tractor, so ATV would pull an even bigger one fine I bet.

Good luck.

I would rather go with a trailer so I can take it with me if I need it, should I sell the land, etc. The other thing is I do not have electricity up there which would make building a shed harder. Thanks for the reply. CH

As Box mentioned, if there's too much tongue weight, just put some ballast (guy, concrete blocks, whatever) at the very back end of the trailer and you could probably balance it out to where there would be zero tongue weight, especially if you got a single axle trailer.

    • The building codes are really very important in order to keep the property safe. We need to upgrade the house acoording to these building codes.

    • great cheap treat those smoked eggs.  
    • I actually prefer Honeycrisp, because of the sweet/tart flavor. Sweet tango ain't bad either. The others get TOO mushy and seem to lose flavor. But, it's a personal preference. Someone'll whine about there are better baking apples.  Made my apple roast the other day with the Honeycrisp, but put it in the crockpot instead of the oven. Came up with this 6-7 yrs ago.  And there's even a picture of it, since words give you so much difficulty, leech.            Reb's  Apple- pork roast

        One boneless 2-3 lb Pork Butt Roast Two cups  Fresh Apple Cider Rosemary Seasoned salt Black pepper to taste 4 oz Cinnamon Apple Sauce (These are the “Snak Pak” size cups) One  large Yellow Onion, sliced thin              Marinate the roast in the cider in a Zip-Loc bag, in the fridge, for 6-8 hours, turning frequently. Place roast in a greased baking dish, with some of the marinade. Sprinkle liberally with seasonings and lightly with the Rosemary.  Place thin layer of onions on top. Pour apple sauce over top. Put in a 300* oven for 45 mns to one hour, uncovered.  Cover and cook  for30- 45 mns- longer or until meat thermometer registers 155-160*. Do not overcook. Let sit covered for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!  
    • @RebelSS, do you recommend any specific type of apples?
