      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 .

golf cart on the ice?

Recommended Posts

Those things are pretty cold blooded, or at least the ones I have been in are. So, if that is the case, I would think it would be an issue.

No snow and "dryer" ice, plus small travel distances, why not? Doubtful you would be pulling much weight, however, i.e. shacks and stuff.

I wouldn't, every golf cart I know of has an open rear differential, traction would be extremely poor. Snow over 2 inches and you won't be moving.

I've used one for years and it works good. I put tire chains on when there's snow. I even had a blade on it and plowed my driveway just put some weight on the back. I've heard that some resorts use golf carts to pull fish houses out before the ice is thick enough for trucks.

I see a guy on the ice with a chained up electric golf cart quite often. He seems to get alon fine in the snow. He also seems to be pretty smashed most of the time. Maybe the electric cart doesn't bother his hangover.

So it seems like people are 50/50 on this. I am wondering how the engine would fire up in the cold. Also, does anyone know if the old 70's gas golf carts work the same as now, i.e. touch the gas and it starts the engine? or do they stay running? I am not planning on using this in heavy know or real bad weather. I am on a lake and I thought it might be an easier way to get around than using the old 3 wheeler.

I have run into him quite a few times on the ice and he has always been goofy as a pet coon. Normally he could peel paint with his breath too. I'm gonna have to ask him what planet he is on next time I see him.

I would think it would work great as long as there isn't too much snow. I'm planning on using my garden tractor this year. I put ATV tires on the back and I'm going to put chains on. What size rims are on the cart? do you have room for ATV take off's? I had the turfsavers on my tractor and I'd get stuck in wet grass. Now that I have the ATV tires on it, I haven't gotton stuck yet and I used it to build my deer stand this last weekend. It went through alot and was pullin 100 pounds of 2X4's. If nothing else get it on video and put it on youtube.
