Peter: "I really like our new Regional Editors, because it's building a community. They know more about their area than I do.

Jeff: "We've seen a 500% increase in traffic, which required upgrades to the Maps, the Forms, the storage, everything.  It's always all about the improving the user experience."

Craig: "I put out a Newsletter every Monday, and it's incredible trying to select the FKTs to highlight. This week Alyssa Godesky and Sarah Keyes did the Adirondack 46ers at the same time, but starting a different trailheads - it was like a friendly socially distanced race."
