      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 .

Got my first deer tick.

Recommended Posts

I was doing some trail maintence in our river bottom yesterday an woke up this morning to what at first thought was a discomforting scratch from buck brush, later after breakfast it was bother me again so I took a close look an an here a tick had attached itself. It pulled off hard an hurt. upon closer inspection, holy [PoorWordUsage] it's a deer tick. My wife is a public health nurse an made some calls an in I go Mon. morning. Upon reasearch on the web confermed that it's a large female deer tick. I did'nt know these suckers burrow their head under the skin, no wonder it hurt pulling it off, I kept the specimen, I guesse thats about as early as a person can hope to detect a deer tick. They are known to carry lymes desiese, as in, not all deer ticks carry it, but it's not a gamble I want, we'll see what happens on Mon. Boar

I found a deer tick in me earlier this year, it freaked me out. I called the nurses office and did some research on the net. It says to watch the bite area for the bullseye rash, but that takes anywhere from 7 to 30 days to show up from what I read. thank god I never got one, the wife was shocked I even found it cause it was so small. I saved my tick too for a month.

good luck

Guys, guys.

We have an overwhelming, needless paranoia to a relatively insignificant event such as getting bitten by a deer tick.

First thing.. deer ticks are lyme carriers as everyone knows. That does not mean every deer tick will carry the disease. Further, of the ticks that are carriers, it is not a given that the bacteria that cause lyme's would be transmitted every time. Finally, even if you were bitten by a tick and it carried the disease AND it transmitted it to you only a small portion of those folks would ultimately develop the disease.

Best bet - check yourself well after each outing, if you find one don't panic, don't go to the ER in a huff, simply remove the tick, head and all, and watch the area for up to 30 days for signs of the bullseye ring. Take 'er easy.

Deer tick carry 3 diseases.... Not a bad idea to check out the attached link at the Minnesota Dept. of Health web site...

http://www.health.state.mn.us/news/pressrel/ticks050707.html

My vet up here in the Brainerd area told me the other day that 60% of the dogs coming in for check ups have a Deer tick disease and not always Lyme... Pretty scary...

I hope the tick that was on you was not a carrier...

Well I guesse I really dont see where I came off paranoid nor did I panic I simply stated I found a deer tick attached, my wife made some calls an I did some research on the web. I did'nt fly helter skelter in to the ER an said save me I have Lymes. I'm married to RN, PHN with more years experience in almost every facet of nursing than I have room to wright about, so I'm bonded to "Take er' easy". but thanks for the concern.

    •   Member of ADVRider. Rode with lots of guys on there. I just put out a feeler on here once in a while.
    • You ever check out www.thumpertalk.com Lots of guys in your area.
    • I think that summer one is in the regs, 75 feet as I recall.   
    • I am no expert either but putting my trust in the builder. Talking to him, there will only be enough lumber to screw the sheetrock to. There will be no 16" on center studwalls. He has done several like this with no problems. The "Gurts" are attached to the poles and you could saw the poles off at the bottom and move the whole building.
    • Like Leech said, it appears that a grant in aid trail is running through your area. I would urge you to contact the club president or another representative and try to work out a solution. They may be able to even re-route the trail to avoid your driveway but you will not know unless you engage in a civil discussion with a representative of the club. Just let them know you have concerns and see if an agreement can be had.    I would be surprised if the club doesn't have a landowners event every fall that you could attend and talk to club members as well to keep reminding them each year of your concerns.
    • Forgot this was a day game, missed it but happy we got the two points. We have been holding our spots and even have some games in hand on some other teams. If we can just keep this pace up we are in, but here is hoping we get hot towards the end of the year. Would be nice for a change. 
    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
    • So no sill plate for the walls on the perimeter then.  OK.     Again, not an expert so whatever your guys say and you’re comfortable with... I don’t know all your construction details. I - sandy County Is just that; sandy.  So it’s not too tough to get a good base.   My experience, as it relates to this, has just been based on building a 36x48 wood framed garage in Isanti County.  8 inch block on the perimeter to support 12 foot sidewalls of 2x6 construction.  My buddy that sold me the lumber said the project was only 200 feet short on interior walls from being a house.  After adding in the attic square footage it had more than my house.  Going with a pole building frame is the game changer.   Again, best of luck. It would be interesting to me to see the completed project.
