#YellowJeep Hero: Duane Mccugh

Today, I had one of the greatest experiences of the ten years I have actively participated in social media! I met Duane McCugh (aka @DMccugh) on Twitter over the last couple of months discussing Jeeps. He shared some great Yellow Jeep pictures and encouraged me to reach my Yellow Jeep weight loss goal.

Today, we met in person for the first time! Duane works for American Airlines at the Dallas – Fort Worth airport. I sent him a tweet saying that I was connecting through DFW in route from Kansas City to Memphis. I offered to give him a virtual Jeep Wave as I went through the airport.

It turned out that I had really tight connection. The flight from Kansas City to Dallas was over an hour late because of weather, so I had less than 30 minutes to change terminals and get to my Memphis flight.

When I got off my flight, there was Duane! He not only met me at the gate, but he guided to the train that took me to the next terminal and made sure I got to the right departure gate!  Not only that – he brought me two absolutely delicious chicken tamales to eat on my flight. What great kindness and remarkable friendship from a guy I had never met in person.

There really is a special camaraderie in the “Jeep Family”! And I was a grateful recipient of that special spirit tonight. I really look forward to going jeepin’ with Duane when I get my Yellow Jeep.

Roll on Yellow Jeep Journey!
