      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 was wondering if anybody else had heard of ca40? It seems that the price is reasonable enough but there must be a million of these items out there.

Never heard of it until now.

Miracle mileage enhancer products have come and gone and some seem to linger around. My gut feeling is this is just another one of those things where the only "miracle" is the electronic transfer of money from your bank account into theirs.

The only product in a bottle that impresses me is Leinenkugel Red, but I don't think it will improve any mileage. grin.gif

If any of this stuff really worked, the car manufacurers would be putting it in. It would be a very cheap way for them to raise their CAFE numbers to keep the government happy.

One thing to keep in mind about all of the mileage incresing do-dads or the "make your engine last forever" additives.

Don't you think if they really worked that the manufacturers would use them?

Hey Valv, One study has found the average American walks 900 miles per year, another study found we drink a average of 22 gallons of beer per year, therefore we average 41 mpg, not too bad . HTB grin.gif

no then they would build themselves out of work.

same goes for the contractors that rebuild roads if they did them totally right. in ten years they would be out of work. with good roads all around they would have alot of expensive, not needed equipment, sitting in the lot. it just amazes me that there are roads in europe that are over fifty years old and have not been touched since they were put down. my two cents worth. ... paul


Get real.

If civil engineers know that it can be done, then they will hold thier contractors to that standard.

Getting back to miles per gallon (of Beer)... I think based on your formula I would get about 4 miles to a gallon. Ha.

Owwww I made myself feel bad.

Jeeez you guys. This is one of the oldest scams in the history of the internal combustion engine! Ha! You'll notice they often claim improvements that are right at the edge of being difficult to measure without scientific instruments. I heard a few minutes of a big dummies radio program the other day and he had fallen hook, line and sinker for this silliness.

But hey!...it's YOUR money. grin.gif

I think these things all work on the placebo effect. You put the gunk in your engine, then start watching your mileage. Subconsciously you start easing up on the gas a little, coasting a little more to a stop. Then you say, "Hey the stuff works! I'm getting better mileage!"

sorry i knew when i posted this i would get a reply as such. and not to get off topic. but i and we do foot the bill. in the enormous taxes we pay. all i am saying is.... when you see a road crew putting down asphault in the pouring rain you know that next spring there will be delamination of this road. i can show you many spots on many roads where this has happened. all i am saying is that if it were done right the first time it would not have to be redone in ten years. i am truely sorry i stepped on your toes. there should be tighter standards and more accounting for jobs done. i can show you a patch of hiway 7 west of the cities that they did a b.s. patch job on last year it took them almost three weeks to scrape down patch material. and after the long hot summer sun had beat down onit for three months, it is worse than it was before they started. again i say DO IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME! sorry thats my rant for now. hope you all have a great day. and can take pride of your work. i do have the most respect for those who are doing the road work cause we could be driving on gravell roads like they do in third world countrys. i am just tired of paying my dentist to replace the fillings that have rattled out. ... paul

Highway 7! Yes that had to be re-done, I've driven on that highway and seen the road work.

I also know that there are other things that our road crew can't control. Nature's elements. Some crazy heat expansion and cold weather contraction, water under the tarmac and voila, broken asphalt. Especially that section of the highway wher both 35's merges. It's crazy how a road bumb appears overnight. One day I see a crack line, next day may car is jumping and I need a new wheel alignment.

Some of the craziest thing done on this highway was once they dug out a few section of it and resurfaced a driveway patch of it. It looked great right after it was finished. Then rain comes. Next thing I know there's a huge sink hole right where my wheel would go into. Guess what, I needed to get new shocks/struts after that. A pot hole is one thing, but more than 6 inches deep is like a sink hole. Well the great Minnesota country is just like this...

Results may vary!

I read a somewhere that using acetone as a fuel additive increased MPG. Before you go out an try it know your risks by throughly researching the topic.

You really have no clue do you! How bout the guy that built your house? If he does it right it will last so why not cut corners, house falls down then he builds you a new one.

Seriously though the contractor has no say in how the roads get built the Engineer does. The roads have to be done to engineer specks. If not money is withheld. On the same note I've seen roads rebuilt with specs that I know wont hold up but the city or the (customer) is out of money. Should the contractor pay the extra $$$ to make it right sometimes costing several hundreds of thousands of dollars? Would you pay that out of your pocket? Short answer no. Do what the contract says and that's it. That's what stinks about my job, in the end when the road is junk its always that damm contractor.

One other note, I have never been to Europe but I do know there is not to many places that have freeze thaw cycles like we do and that will tear apart a road in no time not to mention the chemicals we put down to keep them ice free.

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.
