      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 .

Deadwood SD?

Recommended Posts

Anyone here taken a sled trip to Deadwood SD? Just wondering if it's worth the trip? Can you ride sleds in-town? Do they usually have decent snow?

thanks for any advice!

If your going to drive 8 hours you might as well drive 4 more hours for the best snowmobile ride of your life big horn mountains.

They get snow there in deadwood but you have to tailer to the hills where the snow is. If you hit it at the right time like fishing... luck.... it can have lots of snow.

There is some snow there right now but, lotta out of staters trailer thier sleds here later in the year or after the holidays because of hunting. By the way.....deadwood slots are tighter then the top olive in a jar.

LOL. we'll probably look towards going to the Northern WI or the UP instead. It's a long drive only to trailer them daily.

I have been out there about 6 times riding, we stay at spearfish canyon lodge, right on trail system, drive to your door of lodge, Trail system is great lots of pit stops good off trail riding, not as steep as the stuff further west, we also go to bighorns, both are great places to ride

We used to ride the hills all the time until we started going to togwotee. I've ridden the bighorns too but I'm not at all impressed by riding there. Togwotee is far and away the best. Big Horns a distant second and black Hills third. The only thing that the Hills has over the others is a lot of fun to be had in Deadwood. Hard to beat playing single deck blackjack in the Number 10 saloon and I'm not even a gambler.

44-48 inches I heard this morning. That's MONSTER snow for out there this early in the year. The reason we quit going there is they weren't getting that much snow anymore. Could be weather patterns have changed a little again, or this could just be a fluke. Won't know until January when they should have a pile of snow if this keeps up, or it will be about gone again if this doesn't.

We always left the sleds at Trailshead and drove down to Lead/Deadwood to sleep.

Nick do you visit every forum? If I see you in the women's or bass we may have to cut tie's!

My dad take's a couple trips to the deadwood/lead area every spring and he love's it. He has been to the big horns and the u.p. and still enjoys the Black hills the most. He is 60 so he enjoys a little slower pace though!

    • Has anybody found this particular color of rattl'n flyer recently, i am down to my last 2 and i havent been able to find them in pushing 2 years.    
    • Good deal! Did you leave the ice coned up to help keep a seal?
    • Update: took the shack out this weekend had reflectix and fans blowing in the holes and they stayed open in the -20 windchills 
    •   I also saw a picture with Blair Walsh's face on Marcus Williams as he is missing the tackle.........wide left. 
    • Copied from FB:   A friend of mine has two tickets for the 2018 Super Bowl, both box seats. He paid $2,500 each but he didn't realize last year when he bought them, it was going to be on the same day as his wedding. If you are interested, he is looking for someone to take his place...It's at St Christopher’s Church, in Edina, Minnesota, at 3pm. Her name is Samantha, she's 5'4", about 145 lbs, good cook too.....She'll be the one in the white dress.
      (Feel free to copy and paste, to keep the laughter going!)
    • The saints player was probably running to where the ball should have been thrown. That throw was 2 yards onto the field, should have been closer to the sideline. It would have been a pretty easy tackle to keep him in bounds and the game is over.. Nothing wrong with a little luck on our side. I thought the refs were terrible all game. Lots of questionable and no calls. That last no call when Theilen got mugged was ridiculous...
    • It was about time something like this happen to a MN team. I will take the luck and the win. This game was not the big game. I've seen us win and lose many divisional games. I have never seen us win an NFC Chip game 76" I was too young for that to count. This weekend i might get all giddy and happy if we win but I sure don't want the let downs anymore     Go the SB win or lose I will be happy to see it at least once
    • I think I'm still in shock that it worked out the way it did. It was a typical Vikings playoff roller coaster that for once ended on a good note. The icing on top is that it was the saints that it happened against.    It sucks that the next game will be in the cold at the eagles but of the 3 other teams left, I'd pick the eagles to play against especially without Wentz.
