Nice story, ms, that happens, but medium format film is pretty decent for landscape level detail, has real bite. Your other point works for certain kinds of images for sure - the soft light on the far hill, the sunsets, sun over the sea, anything low light, but if it has foliage in it, and you want viewers to say 'wow' that is FF or Merrill country IMO (or medium/large format film/digital). I sincerely wish it was otherwise.
John Muir always sounded good to me, we have Tasmania and New Zealand, luckily. And not many people, we have gone 3-4 days without seeing a soul, which must be rare these days. Galen was a pioneer, did some great work, quite the philosopher too, died early (light plane crash); did you know he was trying to get his adventure recognised for around 10 years (from memory) before his first assignment, lol. That is the taste of the world, I guess...
finally, a GA645 Fuji with leaf shutter, fine stepped AF, fixed 60mm f4 EBC lens, think of it as a kind of '90s MF RX1, weighs in at 815 grams (lighter than a 5DII body only); they made a wide that would suit someone like Vern - 24mm equivalent (don't shoot me, format purists). I found a couple of links might be of interest:

Dante Stella"s review:
I still love 645's 4:3 to this day, great format for most purposes, and these shot vertical for portraits - 32 shots to a roll of 220. Times gone by.
