      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 last three years have included, Plymouth ('08) Eden Prairie ('07) and another one from the west side of the cities. There are 9 Minnesota cities in the top 100, 7 of which are in the top 50

As far as I'm concerned ANY city in MN is the best place to live. (Well maybe not the cities) I keep checking out the realestate up there and found a really cute log cabin on a big piece of land on a lake (forgot the details) but I do remember it ONLY costs about 2.5 million bucks.

You couldn't pay me to live in Plymouth or Eden Prairie, or for that matter anywhere within 100 miles of the Twin Cities. Been there done that.

I heard the twin cities are getting pretty rough. Thats to bad. I guess it like parts of Orlando. Whats wrong with Plymouth or Eden Prairie? I have also heard from so many people that Ely is the most beautiful place to live but there isnt much for work.

I grew up in Champlin, which has grown unbelievably in the years since I left. My parents moved to Plymouth a little over 10 years ago, and have liked the area. My mom's townhouse is close to a park where there is an excellent playground for the grandkids. The city of Plymouth has done a good job of planning park areas for families. The crime rate is not huge, although it is the metro area. There are great shopping areas really close to my mom's as well. It is fun to visit, but after living in rural Minnesota for 20 years, I couldn't live there.

I've driven thru pretty much all the mid and eastern states from MN to TX - MN to FL - FL to PA and Canada. Parts of PA and upstate NY are pretty, and the mountain of KY an TN. But of all places, I prefer MN. I guess even tho its been many years and 1700 miles, I still call it home.

Too much traffic, too high property taxes, too crowded.

I would agree with this comment.

However, I was born and raised in Plymouth, and I'm back living there again. Plymouth has qualities like a short commute to quality jobs, a great school system, and low crime.

I didn't catch what the criteria were for rating the city selections; it probably wasn't LCM's (Loon Calls/Minute).

During the 1960's, my artist father designed the first "City of Plymouth" logo, still in use today.

Well MN is back on the top 10 best cities to for young couples to start out. There are 3 listed but I only remember Minneapolis. I cant believe they put Miami on the list. You couldnt pay me enough to live there.

    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.  
    • That's awesome. I gave mine a test last night and they weren't bright enough. I might have to order some bright lights from Amazon. 
    • Looking good! I also wanted reverse lights. I used some of the really bright light bars from Amazon on mine.  
    • I would fur it out another inch, then spray foam and finish to the furring strips.  No vapor barrier needed at that point.
