      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 .

the state passed a ban on importing firewood onto state properties, including but not limmited to state opperated campgrounds.

any wood brought into state campgrounds will not be allowed unless it is obtained from a certified wood vendor.

this year it will only be a warning, but next year it will be a stiff fine. $150.00 I think.

my kids sell firewood to the local campers and as soon as we heard about this, we thought it was going to end their little buisness.

on the contrary, it has and will continue to help them.

we filled out the application to become certified wood vendors and now have certified campfire wood on hand, available for campers.

along with the wood, the campers will recieve a reciept, identifying the wood vendor, (us) as the source of their firewood.

we charge nothing extra for this service.

my kids get $2.00 a bundle for the wood.

the money they make goes into a jar that they have set aside to buy a horse, which personaly I hope it doesnt happen...like we need another animal around here smirk.gif

[Note from admin: Please read forum policy]

the man from the state that we talked to about becoming certified vendors told us that we were the first in the area to become certified.

he also told us that they were told in a meeting to be very aggressive on the enforcement of this new law.

if you have not yet heard of this, you will soon.

I hope this helps.

good camping!

I leave in 72 hours for South Deer Lake...

Wood is for sale up at the Camp Host...

The last 3 years for a bundle it cost $3, $2, $2...

We average 3 Bundles a day.

I lugged wood up there the first year... IMO... Not worth the effort and possible implications in Tongue weight problems, and added gas cost.
