Just wanted to toss out another bit of feedback and a suggestion.
I would be really nice to have a sub-forum in the Trip Planning section for each individual state or at least Region. I would solve the issue of Post becoming buried before all the members specific to that region, get a chance to see it. I understand that it would be alot of work to create all those sub-forums but it would be really nice to have it for when we are planning group hangs. Not everyone checks the HF calendar very often. Just tossing this out there. If its not something that can be done then we can just keep using other apps like google+ and facebook to try and plan the trips.
