I have a picture on a wall in my office of a young boy jumping off a pier into the ocean below. Now, I would never claim to be in the same league as Craig Strobeck in photography, but this is one of several pictures I have taken in my life that I am proud of how it turned out. I can remember all the details of this picture, it was getting late in the day, it was hot. I was shooting in natural ligh…

They’ve told us over the years that the financing aspect of purchasing an RV is sometimes the scariest part. That’s why we’ve devoted thi…

Are you Dynamic? I was asked to proofread and comment on an employment ad we were placing earlier this week and those were the first three lines of the ad. I immediately took exception to them, asserting that nobody really knew what that meant and they should be removed. Terry (who wrote the very rough draft) and I had a spirited debate over the course of a couple of days and it spilled over int…

What Can I Tow Behind My Motorhome?

Traditionally, the best flat tow vehicles are rear wheel drive with manual transmission, or a four-wheel drive with a manual transfer case that can be placed in neutral. Although most vehicles can be towed it’s important to refer to the owner’s manual to determine if it can be flat towed with a tow bar or if you need to use a trailer or dolly, as well as any towing restrictions. See Ta…

Dear Team: As I am typing this in my nice dry warm office, I can look out my window and finally see some sunshine and feel a little warmth on my back when I go outside. Mostly I am glad I don’t have to work outside any more like I did early in my working career. There were just so few days when it was just right, mostly either too hot or too cold, too wet or too dry. So, this week I wan…

Dear Guaranty: I just finished reading the book “Shoe Dog” by Phil Knight the founder of Nike corporation. Although Nike is one of the largest shoe and sporting apparel manufacturers in the world, for much of its early life, the company teetered on the edge of financial ruin. The reason is that Knight had a relentless obsession with growing his business and beating his rivals and h…

We got the opportunity to introduce you to the newest addition to Guaranty’s inventory, the SylvanSport GO.

Dear Team: In one of my earlier lives before Guaranty, I lived in Las Vegas for a few years as the controller for a company called Arneson Marine. Arneson built outdrives for high performance boats that were used by (among others) smugglers and shortly thereafter federal drug enforcement agents. We did not actually sell to people we knew to be criminals, they just ended up with a few boats equip…
