Trailspotting’s Google Maps style is similar to what I envisioned working on MH, but since WordPress broke my geo-mashup plugin back at the last upgrade, I haven’t been able to get it to work. Although it’s much more work and potentially less streamlined on my end, I’m considering ‘downgrading’ to a static Google Map to take its place, just to make it easier for users to visualize where these trails are in relation to them.

I’m going to try to do some site clean-up this weekend, but I was wondering — is there anything in particular you want out of Modern Hiker that you’re not getting yet? Different ways to find things? Different organization? Different layout?

Are you getting enough information from the write-ups? Is there anything you want more or less of?

Leave a comment or drop me an email. I can’t make any immediate promises, but I’m listening!
