      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 .

How to move a lawn shed???

Recommended Posts

So...I have an 8x12 lawn shed that I need to move to a different spot in the yard that is about 30-40 feet away from present spot and there is no way to use a truck, trailer, etc. It is 2x4 frame with your typical shed siding, shingled roof, etc. It is built on top of 3 4X4 skids.

Any ideas on best way to move and reposition something like this?

I had the same issue last fall. I got some treated 4x4x12 and some pipe and it worked a bit. It would have been better if we'd have had some round fence posts or something. You need at least 4 of the 4X4's and you just sort of keep building a 'track' until you get where you want to go. I have a roll around car jack and it worked well to lift the thing up and get the 4x4's under it. The 'fine' tuning of the position was just done by levering the house into position.

Biggest piece of advice - have the place you want to put it all set - leveled out, maybe some pea gravel or something to set it on. I didn't and it was a PIA to get the house square enough to be able to close the doors.

Thanks for the ideas guys. Especially the tip on prepping the site to be level, etc a head of time...I am definitely going to do that before moving. I'm thinking we are going to do the roller and plywood method along with a come along since I don't have a 4 wheeler. Wish me luck.

a couplla years ago I had to move my 8 X 12 walk- in cooler using 4 inch PVC pipe. So, I'm thinkin you could use either the PVC or round posts. I think you can use a lever/folcrum to get it up and position your stock under it from the front to the back and roll it fairly easy over plywood. It should swevel fairly easy to get it in to the new position.

If you have a snowmobile trailer, get a handyman jack under each corner and jack it up, blocking it periodically just in case, then run 4x4s across the trailer to catch all 3 skids, back the trailer under and lower it down. Reverse process to get it off.

    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
    • Lots of bears being seen around Princeton not on baits just roaming around.
    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
