      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 .

We have one more trip scheduled. We are taking a long weekend and heading to the Temperance River State park on the North Shore of Lake Superior starting Oct 3 and staying for three days. Hoping to get in some nice hiking to getup high and see the views and maybe even a little fishing. The Fall Colors should be pretty close to their peak around then and that is the main reason we pick this time.

Just got back from a wonderful camp out down at Whitewater SP.

First time back since the flood for me. Very nice place to camp and not to far away from south metro.

Brought my bike and peddled around the camp. I was surprised to see the beach still there. I was told it wasn't there anymore.

The river cut a new path in the area of the old bridge (now gone) that used to connect the campgrounds. They are building a new bridge, but it will be a pedestrian bridge only.

Camped at Maplewood State Park Saturday night. It was awesome. The weather was perfect, nothing like grilled food, a camp fire , and good company. The main campground was full but there was plenty of room in the rustic campgrounds. I would say the leaves are 20-25% turned so there's still a lot of oportunity to see the fall open up before your eyes.

Maplewood is one of our favorites. We'll be at Itasca this weekend. It'll be about the 15th year we've been there for the last weekend before they close up the bathrooms. Looks like we'll be before color peak.

I have only been car camping. I wanted to go camping/backpacking/anything this summer but ran short on money and people who wanted to go that have actually gone before. What tips do you have for someone who has never gone camping and wants to head out into the wilderness for a few days? Basic gear? Permits needed? Help me please, I want to plan one for late May/early June next year, even if it's myself smile.

Probably head up to somewhere by the north shore/northern Minnesota. I don't want to get lost for weeks, just a couple of days.

Maybe you can get to one of the Women's GTG's this coming year. We hope to have another one in June next year and have talked about some over the winter ice fishing. We especially want to get back to Appledoorn's sometime this winter.

the wife and I spent 3 days at talley Bend (Truman Lake) and then 5 days in Branson. The weather was great, and we enjoyed our new (02) Cedar Creek 5th whl. Going to keep camping until it gets to cold, or we head south.

I would be interested in a gtg. smile

Go over and post on the womens forum, I think there were some gals who were interested in doing something around the Twin Cities as their fall schedules were kind of full for a weekend getaway.

We'll be heading up to Finland on Friday for a three day weekend with our '63 mallard. Last outing for this year. Planning to look at some leaves and chase after some grouse. We'll be in one of the two state forest campgrounds there. Hoping to get a spot right on the river. Can't wait to go.

There was a different kind of crowd up to Itasca this past weekend. Fewer pushers, 5ers and groups. Even the Corvette crowd that has been coming up for the past 4-5 years on the last weekend of Sept. didn't show. I'll also note that the traffic on Hwy. 10 was pretty slack compared to past years.

We will be a little south on you at Temperance State Park on the North Shore of Lake Superior. We will be doing some hiking and checking out the fall color and may even wet a line and see if I can get a nice fat Salmon to come out and play for a while grin

    • $37 per year..... Or just find someone to buy you a 3-yr license for $42. Seem kinda goofy consider that stamps are the same price for both in-state and out-of-state  
    • Thanks for the info, I know most of us wheelhouse owners never got a license
    • Not sure why this posted three times and I can't delete any of them...
    • interesting read...
    •   A damper could be placed inline with the supply air duct to either mix outdoor air or recirculated return air, this is air going into the panel.  Modulate that damper with an actuator that is controlled by a simple temp sensor and modulating control, i.e. 0-10v signal.  
    • Had the soup last night and it was really good. The beans weren't too bad - I wouldn't say any mushier than they probably where right out of the can. Pretty similar to the texture of Bush's Baked Beans, so mushy, but I was worried they might be the consistency of refried beans after cooking on low call day in the crockpot. Going to try adding a little liquid smoke next time. That sounds like an interesting twist.
    • Anyone going up on the 8th? Rengel wants another shot at the prestigious Nord Lord title, and me too! And quickfishnoob. Pretty sure there's ice this time.
