Alternatives to deleting[edit]

I started to put this up for VFD, then reconsidered, on the grounds that it might be a potential travel topic in much the same way as Alpine skiing or Scuba diving are. However, I have doubts as to whether this topic could ever produce as viable an article as those two, for a number of reasons, chiefly the anarchic, go-it-alone nature of XC. So what's the right way to proceed? Options I can see are:

  • Try to develop it as a travel topic;
  • Merge content into a trailer on the Alpine skiing article;
  • Try to find some way to refer this article to WikiOutdoors, with which we are trying to craft a collaboration (note that I recently created an article there on XC skiing at Bandelier National Monument);
  • Just delete the durn thing.
