      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 .

Slower Traffic in Left Lane

Recommended Posts

1st I would like to apologize to Hanson for being part of highjaking his gas pump thread.

A couple of posters in the other thread and a few e-mailers had questions about the context of Col. Loeding's comment that people who drive slower than the flow of traffic in the left lane are some of the most dangerous drivers on the road.

He was speeking at a meeting of a 4-k orienteering group a couple of years after he had retired as the head of the MN Highway Patrol. Alot of the kids were 14 to 15 and would be driving soon, so he was talking about safe driving practices.

During the Q & A session after his talk one of the fathers bragged that he helped the highway patrol by driving the speed limit in the left lane to slow down speeders. Col. Loeding replied that people driving slower than other traffic in the left lane were some of the most dangerous drivers on the road. Enforcing speed laws should be left to the state troopers and other law enforcement agencies not self deputised speed police.

This subject has been beaten to death a thousand times and really doesn't belong here. Everyone has their own opinion on this and we all think we are right. Let's concentrate on a more docile subject like fishing.

I'm not all that impatient, but for the times that people need a bit of a lesson, I have the same horn in my truck that you might hear from a fire truck. I can only imagine what has been soiled when I drop hammer.

Ok, here it what ticks me off about this. When on an extended trip, I use the cruise control a lot. I'll be on an interstate or whatever in the middle of nowhere and approaching a slower moving vehicle. I move over to the left lane and start over taking the slower vehicle, then out of nowhere there is someone racing to get somewhere and feels that I am now impeding his progress.

So if I understand this correctly, I need to drop my CC and kick it down to get out of your way?

I would either step on the gas to more quickly pass the vehicle or step on the brakes do drop back in place behind the vehicle I was overtaking. It isn't the difficult to get the cruise going again.

    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.  
    • That's awesome. I gave mine a test last night and they weren't bright enough. I might have to order some bright lights from Amazon. 
    • Looking good! I also wanted reverse lights. I used some of the really bright light bars from Amazon on mine.  
    • I would fur it out another inch, then spray foam and finish to the furring strips.  No vapor barrier needed at that point.
    • Use 1x2 (actually 3/4"x1 1/2") PVC trim boards for firring strips on the face of studs. The PVC won't absorb any moisture and works well as a thermo break from the aluminum studs. They can be found at any of the big box lumber stores.
    • Moisture is likely condensing on the metal studs and being transferred to the paneling. Furring strips will probably be the best bet with metal studs. You can run them horizontal or vertical and then just attach the paneling to that. I personally wouldn't use a vapor barrier. Some guys do though.
