Do you have any ideas?

At Our Hiking Blog we try and mix up a variety of topics and information each time we publish an article.

These have broadly included:

Trip reports – both Australian and international
Gear reviews from people who have ited it
Food, meal and menu planning ideas
Interviews with interesting people we have discovered from around the world
Highlighting some exceptional wilderness photography
Reviewing and encouraging you to visit some other fantastic outdoor sites
Providing resources and information so that people can get into the outdoors and enjoy themselves safely
So over to you valued readers, we are seeking your feedback:
What topics would you like to see more of on Our Hiking Blog?
