I'm not sure if anyone posted about this. When we were doing research for our vacation, my husband remembered a post from 2003, but it wasn't showing up in Chowhound search.
Searching backward 20 posts at a time was too time-consuming. Ron noticed there is a page number at the end of the URL. By changing the page number he was able to get back to 2003 posts easily. This link will go back to 2003 on the General board.
New posts are being added to the boards every day, so page 250 today won't be page 250 tommorrow.
