We are slowly moving back into our Oliver!! Everything is still experimental as far as how long we will be able to do this but for now we are happy and content to be back in our sweet Oliver!!

|So glad to be able to get rid of this CPM Chair|
But that is not what this post is all about!! It's about the people...all of you!! Some of you have had the privilege of knowing, meeting and possibly even camping with George and Suzie Yates ( Our Awesome Travels). Mike and I, unfortunately, did not actually ever meet them but we have blogged together for many years. Through that blog we got to know George. George passed away January 15, 2020 after a courageous battle with cancer. But that is not what I am writing about...I'm writing about his life not his death. George touched most everyone he met including us. He was always smiling and happy wearing his iconic vest and hat. He took everyday and found the joy in it. I especially loved his "walkabouts" which he took almost every morning...early!! He seemed to love sunrises and sunsets especially in the desert southwest!! He and Suzie loved to travel but I do think it was about the people for George as well.
He loved his "social hour" and talking with fellow RVers, family and friends. He and Suzie would sit outside and read in the "e-readers" or "page turners" as he referred to them and then there were the "doggie fixes" for Suzie. I can't forget to mention the meals he created on his Weber Q....what a talent for cooking. He even has his recipes on his blog....you should check them out.
George will be missed!!! There will be an empty spot in blogland with him gone but he left us with his zeal to live, smile and be happy.....George was truly happy!!!

It's about the people....it's always been about the people!! Oh, the places we go are incredible but the people we meet along the way stay with us for a lifetime!!
Enjoy the journey and make those memories but always cherish the friendships!! Mike and I cherish your friendships even though we might not have met all of you. Hopefully, one day our paths will cross...somewhere down the road!!!
