      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 .

What bed do you sleep on?

Recommended Posts

Not sure where to put this but here goes. The wife and I are in the market for a new bed. We are leaning toward a Tempurpedic foam bed. Possible sleep number. Let me here the good and bad opinions.

Thanks

Andy

My wife and I shopped around a lot...the Sleep Number was a possibility but I didn't like that it feels like there's a board in the middle. We slept in one at a Bed and Breakfast and the dang thing was not comfy!

We ended up going to the Original Mattress Factory and got a great bed. We bought a Full Size as well from there and it's just great. Good prices too and if you want more or less stuffing/pillow top they can do that for you no problem.

That's my two cents worth...

This is really wierd. I slept on a memory foam mattress for three years. While i thought it was the most comfortable thing ever......every night I had to get up and go to the bathroom. Thought I was just getting old. Since I've gone back to my Serta (yum yum yum,I sleep through the night.

Yea, I know-don't ask me but it's the truth.

We have the sleep number and we both love it. We have the king size and it does have the hard strip down the middle but we have gotten used to that. Now when we stay in a another bed we are so happy to come home to our own bed.

Sleep # here too. We love it.

I've never slept on one, but have heard that the foam mattresses can retain body heat quite a bit. Don't know 1st hand though.

Sleep # bed here too with the pillow top.

Had this bed for over 10 years and never woke up with a back ache. Went to bed with a few, but they were gone in the morning. It's a blessing in itself that each side can be set to different settings. Keeps both of us happy...she's a 30 and i'm a 65 grin

Thanks for the replies and keep them coming.

I have also heard that the foam beds tend to be a little warmer to sleep on. Anyone experience this first hand?

I've got a queen Serta no flip mattress and it has been great. No sagging and it is going on 10 years. Then again I sleep alone so that might have to do with the longevity. sleep I've thought about the Temporpedic and sleep number, but don't want to shell out the $$ now.

I am real sensitive to the heat thing too and that was my biggest concern with the Tempurpedic, but I have been happy with it so far. Its maybe a bit warmer than a traditional matress, but for me it wasnt really a noticeable change.

Sleep Number! If you agree exactly on beds then you don't need it I guess, but my wife likes a 25-30 and I'm a 60-65 so we couldn't agree on any single bed but this one.

I must have been one of the few who didn't care for the sleep number, so we went to Original Matt. Factory. Great bed for the price and you must flip them, don't buy one that claims you don't need to flip.

We have the Serta no flip and won't get one again. It was fantastic for the first year or so, then started to sag. Maybe we didn't rotate (front to back, not side to side) it enough but for what it cost IMO it should last longer. The next bed we get we will look real hard at the sleep # beds.

    •     thats what I have heard also..  I have put a tip up out on the lake and stay in my home, less than 200 feet, no issue...  could see it always...
    • The dump and run brings home the HJE trophy for the 60th anniversary of the race and on the 20th anniversary of the #3’s win of the race.   Any thoughts?   I’m only a part time fan these days but it seems like the move is totally acceptable these days.  Or is it just if you’re part of racing royalty?  20 years ago there woulda been a fight.   I will say I enjoyed the race and glad it was good since I’ve had to sit on my butt all day not feeling good.  Oh, and the Monster Energy marketing gals don’t suck. 
    • I would also look into using SIPS panels as an alternative to post framed. I have done a lot of projects using SIPS panels from a company called EPS in Iowa including the new fire station/ city hall in our town.    The cost of the panels is higher than the material cost of post framed but they are super insulated, go up fast and really cut down on outside noise. Our city has saved a significant amount of money in heat savings and you can even put in smaller btu HVAC which saves money. 
    • I always thought it was a visual issue. Not sure of the footage away but going house to house without seeing your lines might be a problem. I've wondered in the summer, casting a sucker off the dock and walking up to the cabin to get something if that was in wrong as well. 
    • I’ve heard people have been getting cited for not bringing up their lines to go their buddies houses less than 200 feet away.    What I haven’t heard is the reason why this legally different than having a tip up outside your house.  I won’t argue that it is different, just haven’t heard why, and what notification systems make it or break it.   Its another situation where the use of technology is moving faster than the laws.  I agree with Pro V: contact the DNR before you have to try to explain it on the ice.  Or maybe you’ve had to do that already.
    • Got another good ride in yesterday ,,, Almost took the same route as the last time I did the Tac but took a wrong turn and put on a few extra miles but still and enjoyable ride ,,, Had lunch at Side Lake and then headed out to the Bearskin trail ,,, Nice trail flat, straight and fast ,, A little too fast for a sled not completely broke in yet any way ,,, I think every one enjoyed the ride and trail conditions ,,, As I type the snow is falling and Im sure trail conditions are improving 
    • Good question to ask the warden.
    • I can't think of one reason to ever have a gas auger again... I get around 20 holes per battery this time of year with a lazer 7 inch
    • WAIT FOR IT Here is James Vladyka's story: This is one of my best friends. We grew up together and have made some crazy memories over the years. He joined the Army shortly after we got out of high school and there was many years where we had to make the best out of a few days of leave that he would get to hunt and fish.   To many years have passed 2 tours Iraq, 3 tours Afghanistan and a few years private contracting he has served our country proudly. Now he's retired and we are making more memories again.   This was another battle to add to his long list.  Brock landed this beautiful Pike through a 6 in kdrill hole on a 20" Jason Mitchell meat stick with a Clam Dropkick tipped with a white Super Jamei on 2 lbs CPT line.   The 14 inch white Crappie in it's mouth was placed there for a size reference. The assist goes to another one of my good friends not pictured Blaine Goad. He reach down the hole and help her come topside
