      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 .

Ozark Trail Tents

Recommended Posts

Anyone familiar with this brand of tent?

I'm just looking for a 2-3 or 3-4 person tent

but don't want to spend alot. This is a

brand they carry at Walmart.

I know a few folks that have them. They seem pretty nice. Set up and take down pretty quick. No complaints of leaking that I know of. I would not hesitate to buy one.

Not sure about them. Walmart's home brand I think.

If you get one, seal the seams really good.

How often do you plan on using it? Sun is something that can also do a number on tent fabric. Cheaper tents don't resist the uv damage as well.

If you don't like it, Walmart will take it back.

Thanks for your opinions. I think I'll go buy it.

Probably only one more trip this year anyway.

Not like I'm going to be using it for

winter camping.

And if I don't know if they're sealed? Should I just in case?

And if so, how? Looks like there may be rain this weekend.

The seam sealer I've used works like a big marker. You just apply it to the seams.

The sprays are not a seam sealer. They add waterproofing to the fabric. You shouldn't need to do this with a new tent, but one that is older may benefit by it.

And I could get seam sealer somewhere like Gander? or REI? or??? Is it specifically for tents?

I have an Ozark Trail tent and love it. I've used it for a number of years, in rain, and never had any problems. It sets up super easy and has lots of unique little features. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Well there you go! I say go buy it and enjoy this great weather!

Oh ya, Walmart should have seam sealer in the camping dept. Otherwise, Gander, Fleet Farm, REI - they all carry it.

    • Well the big tom slipped away from me Man He was big be was coming i ti my decoys but the hens went the otherway and he turned and followed  i drew back and almost gave it a shot but it was a wierd angle on one knee and i decided to not    i will get him friday when i go out next
    • The strange part is the better teams/points we had in the standings the worse we looked in the playoffs. It is probably a good thing to get some new eyes on the team and see what happens. I think someone else will scoop up Fletcher fairly soon, like players and coaches sometimes a change of scenery is in order. 
    • red polls and purple finches here daily for a while now. not many house finches.  brown headed cowbirds are here. flickers. Saw a vireo yesturday. 
    • Here are some pictures from my hunt.
    • I have not seen a redpoll in over a week
    • The finger needed to be pointed in his direction, after a few coaches got it first.  I keep reflecting back on the team of 2002-2003, Marion led the bunch in points but the rest was either rookies,  hand me downs and two goalies that got hot. Throw in guys that weren't afraid with lots of heart and they made it work.. 
    • Same here I set the blind where they like to be. Even if that is in the middle of a 500 acre sod field. 
    • It just gives me more time to pass on the addiction to anyone I can be to come out. 
    •     Yep pop it up and hunt they work great.
    • Fletcher is gone, pretty impartial to this, will be interesting to see who they bring in and what they do to shake up the team. Overall I think he was a good gm but not great, pulled us out of the dark ages but never seemed to get us over the hump. New GM will have a much better starting point as far as players and assets go.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2018/04/23/wild-split-with-gm-chuck-fletcher-after-playoff-exit/34168091/
