These will be difficult to find this year. They may be in a few stores in very limited quantities. I wouldn't hold my breath though.

Cabelas likes them and wants them, but are not likely to be in for a bit yet. The manufacturer expects to sell out this years quantity rather quickly, so I asked for what I thought would be enough to keep us supplied here.

I've already had a number of inquiries with intent to purchase.

These units are light with durable canvas covers. The collapsible aluminum frames on the 2 & 3 angler uits flip up with the canvas attached (via velcro wraps). There is a support to keep the front and back bars apart and another support for the bottom piece.

That's it, flip up, expand the frames, put in the supports and it's ready.

The manufacturer says it takes a minute to set-up, but realistically, once you have it down, it can be done in 30 seconds.

As for the Ice Scout(ATV) and Side Angler(snowmobile) these are some slick units if you're into being really mobile.

Sorry skinnylee. I know I didn't help you out enough. You can always purchase and if you you don't like it, return it in new condition and we'll refund your money.

You'll like I'm sure.

Cabelas in Owatonna has one set up. I've fished out of a Sno-boat for 15 years and the Glacier is very similar but 1/2 the weight. The only negative I saw to the Glacier is you can't stand up in it unless you are 5'4". Although you can't stand up in a Fishtrap Guide(2-man) or the Otter II either which is the style I am going to try this year. All in All I like the Glacier and you can't beat the price.

You can toss your gear in, you can get a hitch assembly for your ATV/Snowmobile, and a cover is available as well.
It will be up on the site tomorrow.

Thanks Judd for the Cabelas update.

Rick,
Do you have the three man model in stock. I'd like to try one this year. What is the sled like? From what I read in the stored dimentions description, it looks like the sled is just a piece of flat plastic. How do I get hold of you?

The three man Glacier is similar to the snowboat sled. It is about 4 inches high.

As a matter of fact, the three man glacier is very similar to the snowboat. The differances would be in construction of the canvas which is attached to the sled better and the sewing is heavy duty. It has zippered doors on both ends and a window across the entire front. The window has a flip up piece if you want to cover it.

The set-up is easier and heavy duty as well. I'll try to draw a picture for you guys and put a link to it on the Glacier page. It's really slick. You just flip up the two ends and snap a brace on. Flip the front out over the ice. Then slide another brace for the extension of canvas over the holes. I did it in 24 seconds. The snoboat was a bit more painful.

I drew an picture of the inside of a Glacier- 2-3 angler models. I'm no artist, but I believe it will give you the picture smile.gif

Here is an inside view of how the 2-3 angler Glaciers set-up:

Please be patient while the big pic loads.
It doesn't take too long though.

The Glacier sled is an easily pulled unit if that is what you are asking. The sled material is comparable to the Fishtrap or Sno-boat made by the Clam people. The Fishtrap is an easy set-up, the sno-boat is a bit more complicated.

The Clam is a bit tough to pull loaded down. The Clam folds into a suitcase, is that the one you are talking about? It's not the easiest unit to pull or set-up.

Ditto...ordered one yesterday on Rick's recommendation. I figured it would work great for my wife and 7&8 year old girls while I move around in the "trap".

The cover for the two angler is $34.99 and the three angler is $44.99

Looking forward to your comments Shannon.

Please note: the sled is similar in make-up to the sno-boat. If you're going to do heavy duty hauling behind an ATV or Snowmobile, I would attach a couple of thick plastic runners to minimize wear and tear.

If you're pulling by hand, it should be fine as is. It's light.

I love that Panfish Jig Kit as well. I have it sitting next to me as I work. I keep thinking Panfish, you're in trouble soon.

Anyway,
the first three Glacier 3 anglers have shipped yesterday, the rest may have shipped today..I'm not sure. I hear ya, it's hard to wait. Let us know what you think when you get it. I really like it for the price. If I get time I'll have to get out fishing with you this winter.

I Opened the box and set the Glacier 3 up in the living room. It would have been sooner, but my wife was hiding it from me since it's arrival earlier in the week. She wasn't being malicious - just mischievous. She knew I was looking for it every day. My girls are having fun pretending they're ice fishing.

My initial impressions:
- LIGHT! less than half the weight of most, and probably a third of a Sno Boat 3 man
- QUICK! set up the first time (without reading the instructions, of course) in about 40 seconds
- ROOMY! My wife and I and 7 & 8 year old girls can easily use it together, although I think there's just enough room for 3 to be fishing. Should be excellent for 2 including all gear.
- TALL! I'm 5'10" and can almost stand up straight.
- BLACK! should be very warm (maybe too warm on sunny days?)

This is not the outfit for the hard core ice angler due to it's lightweight construction, but it seems to be well-constructed and should work well for a second house, especially if you do a lot of pulling by hand or if trying to get to remote lakes. I can already envision times when this sled will travel with me instead of the 2 man Trap. Come to think of it, I should have bought 2 of them for the times we might take another couple along with us...you could actually set one on top of the other and pulling both units would still be less weight than most every other option on the market.

The only down side I can see is that my trusty OLD home made 4 holer will probably never get used again...if walls could talk!

The Glacier is a pretty nifty unit. I'm pretty fussy about my portables and the manufacturer really caught my attention, then when I saw the unit, especially compared to the snoboat, it wins hands down (in my ever so humble opinion smile.gif ).

Has anyone else received theirs yet? What do you think?

flb, I must be the weakest link tonight, but I gotta ask, what is a pony clamp?
I'll go out to the shop and set it back up and have the wife blow on it to see if it needs the extra bracing---OUCH ++++ SHE HIT ME!!!!

      Onlineessaywritingservice.review said that not all sites could be trusted. I agree with this statement. Anyone should check the modern websites they want to use.
    • millicentgill
      There should be three components in the work: the introduction, the argumentatively proved thesis, and the conclusion. There are no strict requirements for the arrangement of the components: the thesis can go to the conclusion, but the main task of the author is to ensure the logicality and integrity of the 99 papers reviews. Do not forget when using references to other people's work to mark it with appropriate references, and do not overload paragraphs - each should be marked one complete idea or argument. Introduction This is your calling card, a chance to interest the reader: with a word or phrase, a bold quote to hook and arouse curiosity, without deviating from the main thesis. Use a rough draft, because it is easier to find an interesting "hook" for the introduction while working on the essay, and then put it in the introduction. Remember the popular saying that a worthwhile thought always comes later!   Don't "pour water"; try to use words directly related to the topic of the essay. Mistakes: Blank. Applicants commit the sin of quoting popular people, telling primitive jokes, or using headlines and facts from the media that are annoying to the review committee. Such an introduction will not arouse positive emotions. Dry facts. The task of the introduction - to arouse interest: do not hesitate to be emotional, because the restrained presentation of the facts will leave the reader indifferent. Thesis When choosing a thesis statement, it should be firmly understood that it is not a scientifically proven fact or the result of conducted experiments and observations, but the main idea of the essay, which can be expressed in a few words. To be sure you have a thesis statement, imagine: the examiner put your written work aside and, without reading it, asks you what the main idea is. The two or three sentences you will need to answer are the thesis statement, a summary of the entire essay.   The topic offered in educational institutions often has different interpretations and approaches. You are not faced with the task of finding an unambiguous solution to the question posed - remember that they want to know your personal point of view, test your ability to think logically and be intellectually savvy. It is acceptable to quote from the works of any researcher or philosopher, explaining your understanding of their hypotheses and how they reflect the thesis of the paper. Prioritize unquestioned authorities: Aristotle, Einstein, Socrates, 20th century academics - do not use recent scholars, especially media darlings. Mistakes: To be or not to be? An overly philosophical approach to the problem will lead to a loss of firm ground and turn the essay into meaningless abstract reasoning. State a concrete, not too radical opinion. Argumentation There should be several reasons determining your position on the question posed: describe each of them in detail in a separate paragraph, trying to observe the semantic sequence. Do not deviate from the topic and do not forget that if the logic of the work requires it, the thesis can be placed in the last paragraph. Play on contrasts and contradictions, denote the inconsistency of the commonplace view of the subject with the scientific one, put an obstacle that is not easy to overcome. Give priority to students who not only know how to solve a problem, but also how to discern it. Mistakes: Questionable argument. Remember that the very notion of an argument implies that it is true - you should not cite someone else's speculation as evidence. Don't repeat it twice. The same idea, in other words, expressed in a different paragraph, will give the impression that there is nothing to say. Conclusion In conclusion, you should not repeat what has already been written - briefly finish your thought, write a thesis statement if you decide to leave it for last. The conclusion should be polished and elegantly summarize the previous reasoning. A good way is to share the experience of writing this particular essay: tell what proved to be the most difficult, what ideas you had to discard during your reasoning, and which ones were a revelation to you. Mistakes: New arguments. The conclusion is to summarize all of the above, this part does not imply the appearance of additional arguments: if there are still thoughts, add an additional paragraph. It will be superfluous to describe the structure and content of your work at the end - they speak for themselves. The conclusion is intended to give the reader a sense of completeness and completeness.   Related Resources: Differences between essays and other creative works Checklist for a good essay The difference between an essay and a term paper Structure of the essay

      And here is another site that I will add to the favorites list. I'm glad I found these satirical essay topics so quickly. Perhaps now I will not have to surf the web anymore.

      An informative essay is information that gives details about a topic. You must be able and willing to write informative essays that are both prolific and real. It is important to have some knowledge about the topic. A good knowledge of the topic is essential for an informative essay. You should also have the ability to research effectively. The author must be able and willing to share reliable and accurate information with the audience.   There are many kinds of informative essays. It's all about providing information about the subject, place or personality. The article's main objective is simply to provide information about the topic chosen by the audience. When writing your essay, there are four important points you need to keep in mind. These four points are important.   You must first research informative essay topics and thesis statement. It is important to choose the thesis work you can complete well. It doesn't matter if you know anything about the topic. Take a moment to consider the topic after you have chosen your thesis statement. Research reports and articles related to that thesis statement are a good idea. Your thesis statement will be stronger if you think broadeningly and using different methods to collect the data.   Second, create a list of important words to help you write informative essays. It will be easier to complete the research work. Make sure you arrange everything in a well-organized manner. All points should be spelled out on paper. It will make it easier for you to write your essay. It is important to have two different goals. There are two types of objectives. One is those where you have more grip. On the other hand, there are those where you don't have any grip. Complete the questions list and then move to the next step.   Next, you will need to create a map of your content. Next, create a Content Map. Then categorize specific information about the subject. You should arrange your points according to importance. Be sure to leave room between each point when you are describing the topic. When it is necessary to include points in a middle section, you can. Note: Primary facts in sentences and phrases must be supported by evidence.   The fourth step is to draw outlines. When they outline steps, students sometimes get confused. Many students write the steps in the form of meaningful sentences. Don't forget that outline forms are in the form phrases/idioms, not in full sentences. So, when writing an essay, be sure to outline your points clearly so it is easy for readers.   The final task is to edit. When writing an informative essay, editing is vital.   It plays an essential role in decorating the essay. There are many kinds of editing. A printed copy of the article can be edited. After that, you can remove any unnecessary items and circle those faux words in the text.   Another option is to recite your essay in high-pitched voice. Make sure you are checking the grammar, sentence structure, spelling, and punctuation.   Focus on the drafts during the last. Make the first draft. Then, write the second.   Sometimes professors assign historical problems to the authors. They are obliged to follow the recommendations of their teacher. They will be able to follow the instructions for this topic.   Sometimes, the writer may choose to write his own thesis paper. The task of choosing a topic/thesis paper is much easier than that which is assigned by teachers. You may be offered the chance to pick a topic/thesis sentence on your own. Do not forget to keep other topics in mind. Do not forget to ask questions about your statements before you submit them.   Ask for information on how many books and resources you have about this topic. What are your background details on the topic of your thesis? How do you access journals and books relevant to your theme?   A key point to remember is not to allow too many thesis statements into your mind. It can cause confusion for you and it could hinder your ability write an informative essay.   You must know these points when you are writing an informative thesis. The thesis statement should contain specific, pertinent information. It is important that the research thesis statement not only does not exceed 500 words, but also doesn't go beyond this limit. Your thesis statement should not be in opposition to the reader's thinking. This will encourage them to take an active interest. Find out about your readers and ensure that your thesis statement is appropriate for them. Write for professors and use a more appealing style of writing. Consider what your readers need in writing. If they are unable to grasp your thesis statement well, then you can write something different in your essay that is more appealing. Add more information. If your thesis statement/topic interests you, your enthusiasm for it would be high.   If you're writing an informative essay, be sure to complete it in time so you have enough time to revise and edit if needed. You have to be careful about choosing the topic. Professors tend to assign topics that relate to current events in the society. They can give you research statements compatible with your topic.   Original full content

Treat your classes like a job Be selective in where you study Keep an eye on your internet usage Take care of yourself Another semester, another year! Due to the pandemic, things may look different in your schooling this year. Many students are now taking online classes, despite having only had experience with in-person classes. The content is unchanged, but it can be difficult for students to adjust to the new learning method. Online classes can be difficult if you aren't already. This article will share tried and tested tips that were passed on from previous students. These tips can help you to succeed in online classes. Treat your classes like a job It is easy to feel that your education is more informal now that you don’t have to travel and attend in person. You can certainly benefit from attending lectures in your pajamas. You can boost your motivation to study seriously by not doing any work in bed, or in your pajamas. sets clear boundaries as to when it's time to work and when it's time for you to live. Do not mix the two! If you are part of a full-time program, you might try to maintain a 9am-5pm work schedule at home. You should start work every day at 9am. Take your lunch break at a time that you choose, then work until 5 pm. This is a great method to keep you committed to your work and allow your school to continue to be your school. You might find it difficult to put your school away if you are a workaholic who doesn't have a set schedule. Be selective in where you study It is easy to stay focused when you are sitting in a lecture. It's easy to focus when you have only one thing to do: pay attention and learn from your teacher.

Avoid the common spaces in your home to create a peaceful space for studying. You don't need to study in your living room or kitchen. Instead, use your bedroom. While office space is a great option, we don't all have the luxury to do so. Make sure you have privacy and minimal foot traffic in your home. Keep an eye on your internet usage Online learning is hindered by the ease of accessing virtual distractions. If you watch an online lecture while simultaneously receiving messages notifications, it can cause you to lose your focus. You can set your laptop as "Do not disturb" so that you don't get distracted by notifications. Additionally, it is a good practice to have your lecture/or assignment fully displayed on the screen while you finish them. If you do this, you could accidentally lose your focus by filling up extra space with social media or news browsing. Clearing out extra browsing space can help you focus.

      Fished solo Sunday and Monday afternoon.  Began by targeting smallies, but couldn’t buy a fish which was odd because the conditions were juicy - calm, cool, cloudy, drizzly.   Frustrating to say the least!    Figured if I was gonna get skunked, then it might as well be swinging for the fence.  Switched to Muskies at 7:30 and got lucky as heck, putting three in the boat over the next two hours, including a porker 48”er.  Felt very content the rest of the evening.    Got back out on the water Monday afternoon under post-frontal high skies and was fortunate to trick this lonely blonde an hour into the day.  Missed another a short time later and had some follows before pulling the plug to head home.  Didn’t want to leave that’s for sure!  All East end fish caught casting btw and all released unharmed.   Water temp was 71.

      The main keywords of this essay “can virtue be taught essay”. Plato presents Socrates’ views on the question of virtue and knowledge. It can be taught in many dialogues, including Meno. Socrates offers many arguments regarding virtue in this dialogue. These arguments cover how virtue is defined, and whether people can attain it. He discusses how virtue can be achieved, including whether one is born virtuous and whether it can be taught. This essay will address the question of whether virtue is possible to teach. Plato answered that virtue can't be taught. This essay will argue that Plato could have asked the questions differently and given him a different response. Particularly, I argue that Plato could have asked whether virtue can be learned rather than asking whether virtue is taught.   Meno asks Socrates whether virtue is possible to teach. The argument is then shifted to another question: what is knowledge? Meno then proposed an interesting paradox. One cannot find anything new. Either one already knows the answer, in which case it is unnecessary to search for it, or one doesn't know it and can't recognize it once it is found (Plato 1997: 80d-e. To put it another way, if one doesn't know what virtue (arete) is, he cannot search for it. Because he will not be able to recognize it when he finds it. Socrates proposes a solution to this problem, which is based upon the Pythagorean view on the immortal soul. The idea that the soul can reincarnate and be destroyed after death of the body is an example of this. It is clear that one cannot acquire new knowledge, but it is also obvious that we are constantly learning new things. Therefore, learning must be a matter recollection of past lives experiences and knowledge. Also, remembering is more important than teaching.   He demonstrated the Meno with a young boy from slavery who didn't seem to have any geometry knowledge. He was able to prove that the boy knew certain mathematical theorems by asking him questions.   Meno again asks his original question. He wants to know if virtue can be taught or if one is born with virtue. Socrates agrees to continue, but says they need to find common ground because neither one of them can define virtue at this moment. Meno agrees that virtue cannot be taught if it is not knowledge. If it is knowledge, it can be taught. Meno points out that it is only possible to teach something if you know what it is. It is unlikely that someone who doesn't know how to drive a car can teach another. Meno and Socrates agree that no one knows what "virtue" means and can therefore not be taught.   Socrates claims that virtue can be taught if we are able to learn from those who teach it (Plato 1997: 96c). Socrates asserts that there are teachers who can teach horsemanship, medicine, and other skills. These teachers are recognized by everyone as legitimate, but people disagree on whether they actually teach virtue. Thucydides was the father of two sons. Neither of them were considered to be virtuous. It is claimed that Thucydides taught his children many disciplines. However, it seems that he couldn't find a teacher who could teach virtue, even though he had teachers for other areas of life that he valued. Even though he was virtuous, he could not even teach it. Virtue is not a form knowledge. To make something knowledge, one must be able teach it to others. Socrates concluded that virtue cannot and should not be taught, and that there are no methods or means by which one can acquire virtue. Refer to: Virtue is simply "shown that it will come to us whenever it comes" (reference).   Plato might have received a different answer if he had asked the questions differently, according to my opinion. Plato could have asked whether virtue could learn, rather than asking whether virtue can ever be taught. To put it another way, asking if one can be taught something implies that the relationship between a student or teacher is involved. However, asking if something can be learnt means that the student (or someone with similar life experiences) is asking if a teacher has taught you geometry. To ask whether I learned geometry, it is to simply ask whether it was taught to me by a teacher or if I learned it myself from a book or some other source.   There are many ways to learn. To learn something one doesn't need a teacher. Learning can be done by studying virtue-filled people, even though they may not know it. A man might be learning virtue and his "teachers" could be virtuous even though they may not be living. Experience is another form of learning. Experience can be a great way to learn virtue. This would mean that the "teacher" is a combination of life experiences and reflective nature. Another form of learning exists. Even if he can't explain how he learned it or what he knows, a man can still learn. After someone has experienced a certain problem in their life, he may be able to detect that his relative is also experiencing the same issue. He can recognize it but cannot explain how. Another example is the musician or painter who has learned their craft and can perform well but cannot explain what it was.   The question of whether virtue can or cannot be taught is therefore a different and more narrow one than the question of whether virtue can actually be learned. Plato was right when he said that virtue can't be taught. It is likely that many people know of or have heard of people who can recite the "rules of virtue" but cannot put them into practice. This is a clear indication that virtue cannot be taught. As I mentioned, being virtuous is similar to being able to play a musical instrument, which is instinctual. It could be argued, for instance, that the ability to recognize when to help a friend, or when to give it to him, is something we instinctually know.   This means that, although virtue cannot be taught, it is possible to learn virtue. Plato suggested that virtue is inherent. This is true to a certain extent. Some people have an extraordinary capacity for virtues such as compassion, empathy, and the like. Since they were born. Others, however, seem to have a lack of moral consciousness. This seems to be a problem because virtue cannot exist without it. This does not mean that virtue cannot be learned, but that the foundation is inborn.   The same way we understand that it is possible to preach virtue but not practice it, so too can the reverse. People can improve their understanding of virtue and may find that they are more virtuous through reflective practice. As they get older, their perceptions of what it means to act in a virtuous manner change. Plato might have received a more positive answer if he had asked different questions (e.g., if he had asked if virtue could be learned instead of if virtue could be taught).
