    Fun and personality. Feedback on posts. A shift away from the try-hard FKT bro and his crew out there being actively harmful to the outdoors from the entire industry. I know HMG is very supportive of trail crew/caretakers/etc, but I'm not sure I've ever seen it talked about.

    It would be great to see interviews/showcases of specific trails throughout the world. For example, highlighting a trail and then having an interview with someone from the organization around the trail and some hikers. It could be a great way to discover new trails and give prospective hikers a means of connecting with the organization and previous hikers!

    I like the responses from both @tradigan21 and @AustinHager.

    Fun, personality, and feedback / responses to posts all feel like they would help this feel like more of a community.

    I'm also into behind the scenes stuff that maybe doesn't always get talked about. What stories can backcountry rangers share? Trail builders? Search and rescue? I would be interested to hear about when things went wrong and how people worked through the problem. There's a reason it's called an adventure.
