The turning of the seasons has brought about a few personnel changes here at Trailspace:

  • Alicia MacLeay, our Editor in Chief, is taking a well-deserved break: a couple months away from Trailspace to recharge and refocus.
  • We're also excited that Seth Levy has joined Trailspace in a new role we're calling Community Evangelist. Read all about Seth and his new position here and here.
  • Finally, we're psyched to welcome long-time members Gonzan, Rick-Pittsburgh, and Trouthunter into our crew of volunteer community moderators.
