American RV magazine (Dec. 04, edition)
|Gary and Joyce|
One of our favourite RV parks is Carefree RV Park, Apache Junction, Arizona. Not only do they have half price pitches through Passport America, they are just a few miles from Phoenix Airport our exit point to the UK. We frequently use this park so when we arrive there is always a big welcome, none more so than that from Gary & Joyce.
Let me introduce you to Gary - he is a 59 years old ex infantry Lieutenant who was assigned to Special Forces in the Vietnam War, and still proudly wears the insignia on his Stetson.
In early 1996 Gary took early retirement from 30 years of trucking all over North America, due to breaking his back.

We first parked next to Gary & Joyce some 4 years ago, and now Gary is best known to UK RV'ers for his contribution to the pages of the ARVE magazine, under the pseudonym G.LaVerne Crowell. So now you've seen his face and learned a little of his life, next time you read one of his articles you will know it comes from one of our American cousins, with a wealth of interesting information.
