Should I add a category to the forum to show other discussion sections for regional hiking areas?

For example: Midwest would be for trails in OH, IN, MI, IL, MO, WI, MN, IA, KS, NE, SD and ND.

As the forum grows, we can eventually break regions down into sub-forums so each area can have its own dedicated section.

I’m open to similar ideas as well - please do explain any in your reply :)

You're probably right on that.
I don't wish to overwhelm anyone!
I don’t think it would be overwhelming, but underwhelming. You need a large group before there’s really enough input and participation. This site seems like it’s not really just a personal blog with information but a shared interest site. For break off interest groups and their posts they’ll be more interested if there’s enough people to get the answers they are looking for.
