Howdy Folks,
Sad news to report. George has passed away. If any of you have or had read his long going blog about RV adventures - we have lost a great guy. He was building a custom class C from a moving van after many years on the road. He will be missed by me and many other readers of his blog.

I followed George for years. Got to feel like he was a friend. I wish I could have met him.

Where was he when he died?

A interview with Tioga George. I do believe.


Pretty sure this is Tioga George a couple of years ago. I have followed him some. This is kinda cool.

I am so sad. I just found his blog and I am reading about his adventures from the beginning. Only at year 2006 so far.

He was and is my hero! I love his courage and attitude.

My condolences to his family and friends. While I didn't really know the man, I do know he's been a long-time member on these forums and losing such a great person is always sad. Can someone post the link to his blog?

So sad to hear, I read his log from the beginning but he was never the same man after his son died.
