I always try to use this feature but i get like fifty pages of responses. Does this happen for you? I typed in pass colors and got completely differnt subjects.

No, it works fine, but if you search for vague terms you'll get vague results. What do you expect to find when you enter "pass colors?" Considering those two words come up constantly, there's a lot there.

I've come across this problem, as well. I can search "Holiday World" in trip reports, and get two results:

1. A pretty accurate search that actually points me in the direction of Holiday World trip reports.

2. An alphabetical listing of pages and pages of trip reports that have little to do with the search criteria.

It seems to be pretty random, as I can do the same search consecutively and get either result.

I also wanted to note that if I get the weird results, I just re-submit the search and get what I'm after.
