      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 .

winterizing work boots

Recommended Posts

So, with our Beatiful Minnesota Winter here, soon we will have the wet stuff on the ground and will need to "winterize/Waterproof" my work boots. I have Redwing Boots and in the past i have used minks oil?, or something similar to that. Does anyone else use anything other than that that they dont have to CONSTANTLY apply every few months, to keep the water out of their boots?

Thanks

Shawn

I will second Sno-seal. I would put it my Icemans with a rag and put on a good coating and extra around the seams and next to the sole and then I would use a hair dryer to heat it up and melt it into the leather and seams. The leather never leaked but due to really old age ( 20+ ) they are now officially retired.

I would love to get New winter work boots, but with the requirements for work, its kind of tuff to get the right ones, has to have 1 inch heel, 90 degree bend between the sole and heel, steel shank, steel toe, and those are just the ones that I remember.

So, sno-seal and a blowdryer, sounds like a winning combonation, Ill give it a shot this weekend and hope that it helps, I tend to go threw a pair of work boots in about a year and a half to two years, I work 4 10's but have the boots on for close to 14 hours a day, that and all the up/down crawling ect with work, they get scuffed up real bad. We cannot have any of the steel toe showing for work.

Wearing your boots for that long of a period and not letting them dry out will shorten the overall life of the boot. You might want to get one of those Peet dryers just to make sure that they are good a dry at the start of the day.
