      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 .

I think most State Forest, or State Park camp grounds allow dogs, but the rules need to be followed such as keeping them on a leash and also controlling barking. They can not be left unattended either.

There are a lot of places up here to go camping. We take our dog everywhere we go camping. But as posted earlier most campsites have rules.

Few places we have stayed at around here are Echo Lake Buyck area, Wake Em Up Bay on Lake Vermillion, Hoo Doo point Lake Vermillion, Nine Mile lake campground, Harriet Lake campground.

Private campgrounds like to charge extra for pets.

State parks have leash rules. Same rules apply to state forest campgrounds but there's generally no one around to enforce any rules.

If your dog isn't a barker, most people won't care if you have one or not.

Reminds me of a time we were camping at Echo Lake and sitting around the campfire and the dog(a very friendly and social Siberian Husky) was laying just off to the side of us. As she is very good when we are camping we weren't paying a whole of attention to what she was doing. All of a sudden we hear our neighbor say "where did you come from" in a pretty much friendly greeting to the dog. She had snuck off and went visiting. He wasn't upset and since she just wanted to go say hi no harm no foul. Just a little embarrassing blush

We were at Shady Oaks in Garden City last Memorial Day weekend. Someone brought their dog along and chained it to the bumper of their RV. It was a barker. Surprised it made it through the weekend. And BTW, I am not just talking about it being out barking all day- it was chained to their bumper 24 hours a day and barked all night.

That is not a dog problem, that is a dog owner problem. I have had 3 dogs and not one has been a barker, more about how you train and treat you dog as to whether they are going to be barkers than the personality of the dog.

The other dog owner problem is when people constantly yell at their dog. Sometimes you wouldn't even know they had a dog if they weren't yelling at it.

I agree about it being owners problem, but if they had any sense they shoulda boarded it for the weekend. No sense in ruining everyones sleep all weekend. We have a pop-up, and noise barriers are few and far between in them

Just a one time camping trip this summer? How about just taking a test camping trip first?

Try one night at a State Park near by. Just throw whatever you think you will need for the night in the car and go. Don't forget the basics, and don't make it a big deal. Eat first if you want & just bring snacks.

Bring a note pad and a pen with you to jot down all the things you might want to bring next time, you will need it. Bring the little sitzu and try it out.

After that you will be able to plan your July-August weekend better.

PS...An inflatable air mattress in a tent is one of the best luxuries you can have camping...in my opinion. Plus an electric pump for it...
