The forum’s search feature works OK. But I find that using some of the advanced Google searches can allow you to dig deeper, faster. All you need to do is add site:http://www.rivermiles.com/forum/YaBB.pl to your search string and google becomes only focused on the forum. 

Some examples:

propaddler training site:http://www.rivermiles.com/forum/YaBB.pl

propaddler battery screen site:http://www.rivermiles.com/forum/YaBB.pl

water checkpoint site:http://www.rivermiles.com/forum/YaBB.pl

Copy one of the highlighted parts of the text above, say for example the first one, for the Rivermiles forum.

Now go to Google and paste the text into the search bar.  Hit space bar, then type in whatever you're searching for, for example "hydration bladder."

Tell Google to search.  All the results that come up will be from the Rivermiles forum (except for an ad or two, Google still has to pay for itself).

Pretty nifty trick!  Smiley

Google will also do a barrel roll if you command it to.
