I have come to a fork in the road. The road that I have been on is a road that I have traveled long, almost 17 years with Guaranty. It has been a wonderful trip with lots of stops along the way that contributed to a journey that is far too long and beautiful to express in a few words. The other road is less traveled, but has unlimited potential. I have decided to take the road less traveled. It gives my wife Kathie and me the opportunity to own half of the road. We are excited, but will miss the daily camaraderie with many of the wonderful friends we have in the Guaranty family, and so many customers that we have had the privilege to meet. We are rejoining my longtime friend (also a former manager at Guaranty), Dave McAndrews (Mac), and his wife Candy, in the eventual proprietorship of a RV dealership, with stores in Eugene and Coburg Oregon. These two stores combine to be the largest RV Dealerships in Eugene/Springfield with a current inventory of over 400 RV's.

Kathie and I would like to thank all the Alpine owners for the wonderful times and great experiences we have had the pleasure of enjoying with you. YOU ARE THE BEST CLUB THERE IS, PERIOD!

In closing, I would say that I do not wish to abandoned you. You are all in my thoughts, hummmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!! Hopefully, our paths will cross again. If any of you are in the area, stop by and I'll buy you a cup of coffee.

I hope to continue corresponding with you and wish you the best of happiness in your future adventures.

Thanks Again,

Jim & Kathie Hardy

Jim,

I too want to thank you for all of your Alpine support. You have added a lot to many rallies, not to mention the one you put on here in Las Vegas. I assume that the RV company that you are talking about is RV Corral? I and I am sure, all of the other Alpine owners wish you well in your new endeavors.

Your assumption is correct. Should I brew some fresh coffee?

Wow, Jim & Kathie...a new adventure! I must join my friends here in thanking you profusely for all you have done for us Alpiners. The way you stepped up and hosted a rally for us in Las Vegas in February will never be forgotten. And, that was just the cap on top of all of the other Alpine rallies you supported.

You can bet John and I will come and see you when we are in the Northwest. And, we wish you all the best in your new endeavor.
