      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 .

Limited Travel on Lake?

Recommended Posts

This make be a stupid question, can a truck still veture out off the plowed roads on the lake after this storm?

I'd like to come up this afternoon, but concerned about limited lake access.

Thanks, Mudflap

Donk,

Obviously, snow depths varied throughout the state. We didn't get as much as forecasted. Travel was much worse last week.

I was being serious about hitting the lake.

Sorry buddy, I guess if you go to try it, bring a shovel, or maybe a snow blower... Read some posts from before, and I think you'll get the hint. If you are lucky, you may find an area where the snow has been blown down to 6-8", and drive in there, OFF THE ROAD, and pull the stuff from there.

With the wind and such I'm sure they're having a lovely time trying to get things plowed. I'm heading up that way sunday or monday. I'm hoping things will have settled down a bit by then.

Right now it is the wind that is the problem, we only got just a few inches of snow from this storm, it is the snow from last week that is the problem. I just pulled my plow trucks off the lake for today, it was useless to even try, the wind would blow the road shut within 20 minutes. Tomorrow the wind should lay down enough to get back out there again, off road travel then should be fairly easy, most of the snow that was on the lake will be on shore or in big piles, I hope this helps.

Mudflap, Are you growing cautious in your old age now or what. If I remember not to long ago you were jumping cracks with the old ford.

When the wind goes down, the roads will start to be cleared.

Surprisingly it looks pretty good for cross county travel. Granted I viewed most of it through frosted over plow truck windows but alot of bare ice was showing. With a 4X4 and good sunshine to avoid the big drifts it looks like you can go most anywhere.

Thanks everyone....

Jigger, The crack jumping was unintentional.

I was racing a GPS battery going dead to a designated spot. Not paying attention, we hit a perfect ramp doing about 45 mph hard enough to get my 14 year old boy to scream like a little girl.

Since he got his permit, I'm sure he's tried to beat my distance record with the rust bucket.
