Things that clutter up our lives because no one knew what to do with them

Dear Team: As you know, the main office is undergoing some construction and all of us have had to move our offices. I just finished moving over to RV Service to share a room with Kendra for a while and part of that task involved going through a bunch of file boxes and deciding what needs to be kept and what needs to be tossed. As I was standing at the shredder just a few moments ago, I thought a…

On comfort zones and the quest for perfection

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…

What Can I Tow Behind My Motorhome?

Traditionally, the best vehicles to flat tow behind a motorhome are rear wheel drive with a 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 tow…

About hiring dynamic individuals and what exactly that means

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…

Being thankful for those Guaranty employees who work outside

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 want …

Thoughts about Nike and the effort to make your life better

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 he…

Off-Road RVing: RVs for the Road Less Traveled—Part 2

Last week we started talking about RVs that can stand up to off-road RVing, ones built to take you to the boonies, where the typical RV can’t travel. We got the opportunity to introduce you to the newest addition to Guaranty’s inventory, the SylvanSport GO. This week, we’re going to talk about some of the other RV models and manufacturers who have long-standing, excellent re…
