Using swear words too easily at work

Dear Guaranty Team: WTF?? I am sure virtually everyone reading this blog knows what that means and this is going to be one of those blogs where I am just as guilty as some of you are, that of being too free and easy with our profanity. Now, in the world, there are those who never swear, and those who weave a tapestry of profanity almost every time they talk, and then there is the great middle gr…

We Love Class C Motorhomes: The Best of 2017 Part 1

At Guaranty RV, we love Class C motorhomes. All right, we love RVs in general, but the family friendly, economical Class C’s have a special place in our hearts. We’re not alone in our love affair with these iconic motorhomes and their distinctive cab-over profile; they’ve been a popular favorite among RVers in North America for a long time now, and for good reason. They offer th…

Writing an obituary on how you lived your life

My ex brother in law passed away last month, and my sister in law (his ex-wife) asked me if I would write his obituary. That is a first for me, I have never been asked to do that. As I confessed in an earlier blog, I am an avid reader of the obituary page every Sunday. It sounds weird I know, but most obituaries are 10% about how people died and 90% about how they lived and the stories just fascin…

Thoughts on Guaranty employee retirement

Dear Guaranty: I got to do a fun thing this morning at the Friday sales meeting. After 20 great years, Donna Marean from our motorized lot staff retired from her job here at Guaranty and I got to stand in front of the crew and wish her farewell from here and safe travels to the next chapter of her life. It is, as I described, a bittersweet moment. We are at the same time sad to see a good employ…

RV Travel Outside the U.S.: Visit Canada & Mexico - Part 2

In our blog last week, we spent some time talking about RVing in Mexico and Canada, about the importance of getting passports, travel visas, vehicle insurance and registrations in order before you go, for stress-free travel. We also gave you intrepid travelers some links to make sure you don’t try to travel with prohibited items, either leaving the U.S. or coming back. This week we’r…

I just finished a meeting with Marshall White, Terry Muir and a gentleman named Mike Boyle who represents the University of Oregon. We are proud sponsors of both Duck and Beaver football, and we were meeting with Mike to discuss the first year of our sponsorship and what went well, what we wanted to do better or more interesting this year. I am lucky to get to work with some amazing creative peopl…

RV Travel Outside the U.S.: Visit Canada & Mexico - Part 1

As we all know, the U.S. is full of amazing RVing destinations. But one of the wonderful things about living in North America is that RVers also have two entire continents to explore from the comfort of their homes on wheels. Crossing the border to drive the highways and byways of Canada, Mexico, or on down into South America isn’t hard to do and opens up a new world of possibilities for adv…

Advice on epic failures and becoming complacent

Epic Failure Ever hear that term? Have you ever lived that term? When I was in college, I played a lot of tennis, I had a partner and he and I played almost every week for two years. We were competitive but mostly not really talented, but our skill levels were very similar, so our matches could be very hotly contested and the more we played together, the tighter the games. It has been 36 year…

RV Lifestyle: Working From the Road

Here at Guaranty RV, we work with people all the time who are opting to give up their stationary lifestyles for life on the road. While a good number of those travellers are retirees who are selling the homestead and taking up snowbirding as a lifestyle, increasing numbers of working Americans are also seeing the advantages of combining their love of travel with bringing in a paycheck. There have …
