This thread is for comments on the article "It's time for a Break"

Me, resting, after my first 50K this month. Every day I know I'm quite lucky to work on Trailspace, a site that melds my personal interests—getting outdoors and being active—with my professional interests—creating and sharing content with our community members. At times it can be hard work, but it's something I personally believe in and the members always make it worthwhile (than...

Withdrawal?  Heck I'm worry you'll grow to like it and then we'll be without your touch, here on TS forever!  ENJOY.

@ Alicia :Thank very very much for all your hard work, insightful and informative writings.  Usually I find that my best times off and or trips are the ones with no plan's.  I find that I do best when I have only a beinging but no itinerary along the way and no end in sight.  I wish you the best on where ever your journeys take you and lead you to.  Have fun and I can't wait to  here about your travels and wondrous journeys.

Taking a break is important to me, I know when I need one and I trust you do as well. I have always felt better after a nice break. Speaking just for me, my brain doesn't function well running full speed ahead without breaks.

Have a good time, enjoy a break, and thanks for Trailspace.

Thanks, guys. I appreciate the kind words.

It can feel like a bit of a selfish luxury to take a sabbatical, but as I've thought about and planned this I've also realized it's not only good and necessary for me, but will be good for the site in the long-run too.

Thanks!

Good for you, Alicia! 

 I am sure you will enjoy the time decompressing, and that spending time with your beautiful family without the demands of TS will be wonderful.

Best of wishes until your return.

Thanks, Alicia, for all you have done to foster this community. I'm sure for all the parts we see there's a ton more behind the scenes that we don't see. Enjoy your break!

-Go for it, Kid ....

I just did it, myself ... for about a month-or-so.

MY favorite time of year ... beginning right after Labor Day.   Went surfing, mostly.   Long Island, NY ... Ocean City, MD .... Virginia Beach, VA.

Also, a week-long Yoga retreat was welcomed.   Lotsa "Yoga-Babes" didn't hurt, either.

Was getting a little bored here at Trailspace.   Good time to "recharge".

Well, two months (plus) have come and gone and I'm back!

I appreciated the time off, and highly recommend the same to others if they can manage it, but am glad to come back to Trailspace with lots of ideas about how to support the site to be the best outdoor gear community around.

Thanks again for the kind words and well wishes.

Don't worry, I wrote everything down. :p

I eagerly await Rick's detailed play-by-play report of the last two months on Trailspace. It will be just like having been here in person.

Whatever Rick said we did........we didn't. hahaha. This is like when you had a substitute teacher in school you got away with things, then the good students would tell the teacher upon their return of what you had done!

Wow, just a few days ago I was on the site, ran across something Alicia had posted, and wondered if she would be back. Welcome back Alicia!
