      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's it like

Recommended Posts

Well, it's going to be a while before I can get into a 5th wheel, so would you embellish me a bit a tell me what it's like having your own cabin on wheels? I will experience it vicariously through your description, so be specific for me smile

Sort of like reading a book and putting yourself there.

for us, it's about time with family. we looked at going seasonal, but part of the fun for us is traveling to different campgrounds and seeing different things. we have 2 kids and love the camping season. it's not about the cabin on wheels, because you are only in it to sleep. it's just a matter of being more comfortable than is say a tent. I have a travel trailer. once you get a routine, it's nothing to hook up, and when you get there, it's only a one beer job to set everything up the way you want, then it's off to the park with the kids, over to the lake to fish, to the trail for a bikeride, playing games, then supper on the grill, campfire, smores.........get up and do it all again. we don't travel far from home (usually within 100 miles) We don't care if were 4 miles from home. because when your camping, the lawn isn't staring at you needing to be mowed, the other things that need to be done at home will still be there when you get home.

For us it is about getting away from phones, email, tv pagers etc and not worrying about work or the grass or the other odd jobs we have going on. We like to go places where you can't get a cabin, stay in motel/hotel and just enjoy nature, but not have to do without a comfortable bed and shower. We really only spend time in the 5th wheel unless it is raining.

We spend time fishing, hiking, relaxing sitting around a campfire. Nice to be out there and not have to sleep on the ground. Kind of "Roughing it Smoothly" approach to camping for us.

Ditto for us too. It's nice to not be at home, but still have a few home features. If it's hot turn the A/C on, if it's cold turn the furnace on. Not having to deal with the public bathrooms is really nice.

I agree with all. The grass can wait and the bills can pile up in the mail box. I dont really own my own camper. My mom and dad let my family use there camper during the summer. Trust me it looks like a real pile but for us its a God send. We tried to camp for a couple of years useing a tent but it seemed like every time we went it would rain for at least 2 days. When we go camping we try to go for a week. Not always but most of the time. I dont look forward to anything else more then those week long trips to the lakes and the woods when the biggest worry for the next 7 days will be if I brought enough beer and if I can get a fire going in the pit without looking like a fool in front of the wife and kids. It rained for a couple hours this past summer while we were camping, We all piled into the small camper and talked. We laughed and joked with one another and I really was happy. I almost didnt want the rain to stop. But alas it did and everybody headed back outside. I think about that day alot and I know it will be one that will stick with me forever.our camper is small and we bump and push our way in and out but I love it.

thats my 2 cents on campers. LOL

    • I have to stop procrastinating, ice will be here before I know it! I made a little progress lately, I painted the inside, installed cedar accessory boards and thermostat and hopefully by this weekend have the rubber flooring down. I also ordered the termination cap for the furnace, should be seeing that in the next week or so. I also have a custom cushion being built to fit my bench seating. Got a question on rattle reels, I am looking at the all aluminum ultimate  rattle reels. Anybody use them? They seem a little spendy but not too concerned about the price, looking to see if there are any reviews out there. If those don’t seem to fit your need, what other brands have u used and feedback on them would be nice also. I will take some pics this weekend for a quick update.  
    • Sport's Show is a great place. I purchased the grey Frabil for under $200.00 But that was 5 years ago
    • You mean like Chicago is doing with Hossa?  Great idea...think of the space that would clear up!
    • Six of us shot 10 on public land Saturday near Worthington.  Good day until the wind really kicked up at the end of the day.
    • I have trail camp pics of some yearlings sparring.
    • yea but dave we will never really know now will we!!!!!!!! woulda shoulda......... its  W for da good guys and  L fer dem other ones!!!!!!!!!
    • Parise Update:    Zach Parise, battling an undisclosed injury, was in a red jersey and skating on a line with Joel Eriksson Ekand Eric Staal. The goal for the past several days was for him to make his season debut this weekend. But early in practice, Parise left the ice and did not return. "I talked briefly with Chuck, but he said it was a setback. I don't know how much of a setback or anything," Boudreau said. "I know I talked to him before practice and he felt great. That's why he was in a red color and was ready to go. The next thing I know, somebody told me he went off. I don't know why he went off. Obviously, something didn't feel right."   My feelings is that he needs to be put on the LTIL and get 100%.
