      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 .

We got at least a foot of snow at my house, I'm sure there's more out there, especially as you go futher southeast. The trails are in great shape right now in the Detroit Lakes area. I was on the Lakes-Vergas trails yesterday and this morning for a few hours both days. I put on about 80 miles. Lots of virgin powder out there yesterday and this morning. Surprisingly not a lot of riders were out yet. Some trails along the ditches were getting difficult to ride due to the amount of snow; darn near got stuck a couple of times. Here are a few pictures from this morning:

I just got back from a 3 day trip to LOTW for our FOP Fishing Derby. We spent Sunday riding sleds near Baudette (sp?). They got some snow!!!! We put on about 100 miles...80 of which was on trails...and we were the first to break thru the powder....what fun. There was so much snow, my friend plugged his air intakes and his sled had over-heated before he realized what was going on....melted all the wires and hoses...we had to retrieved it later that night...not so much fun. I only get to go sledding once a year (this particular derby weekend).....this snowmobiling thing can sure be addictive. Oh, by the way, my friends tell me I am the "KING" of "gettin stuck". Thank the lord I have friends that are willing to dig me out..... tongue.giftongue.gif

Deadhead:

None of those pics are of stuck sleds. I was just trying to show how much snow they have.

There was three of us riding...and I was the only one that brought a camera...and I am wwwwwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy too smart to let my friends hold onto my camera as I tried to get un-stuck. Trust me, if there were any pics of me stuck..it would just look like snow with my helmet poking out the top............ grin.gif

hitman, I broke the mold with the purchase of the sled; I'm a Ford man myself. Arctic + Ford = ????? If they would have been practically giving away a FST touring I would have gotten that instead of the t660.

besides, my four stroke, aside from being heavy, has got enough torque to pull out other sleds easily. tongue.gif

Yeah, I am teasing you. You did get a great deal on a good sled. Not a Great one, mind you, but a good sled.

Maybe you could buy a Polaris sticker and trick some of the not-so-smart people??? grin.gifcool.gif

Hitman,

It used to fit in a chevy but after 300,000 miles I couldn't stand the smoke.

Nice pic Paul.

Reminds me of the movie Tommy Boy when "Tommy" got full of mud and cow pies and his "brother" had to hose him off with gasoline. "he's a mainiac, maniac ..."

That was funny stuff.

I hope that didn't happen to you. wink.gifgrin.gifcool.gif

Na that was all field mud after a 9" rain over labor day weekend 2 years ago. We rode for 3 days in the rain, the last day was tough because of all our trails being underwater so we hit the girlfriends fathers slough beds and spent hours upon hours of getting muddy.
