San Francisco!

We arrived safe and sound in the San Francisco bay area today. We are planning to stay about 10 days then start traveling north. We are going to repeat our last year trip. It was such a wonderful time so we are going to do it again.

Gordon drove Maggie like he'd been driving her for years. There is a lot we do not know how to work. We are going to sit down everyday and read for a few hours and try to learn about all the stuff we do not know how to work.

Wish Ken Marler was here to help us out. He has been such a help to us. Ken we need you.

More Magna (Maggie) Info!

I hope this will answer all the question you have asked me.
Our beautiful new motorhome is 40 feet long diesle. Maggie, (that's her name - because she really talks to us) has one slide. The slide is a kitchen galley slide and it is 15 feet long and 16 inches deep. The floor is a ceramic tile with nuheat heat. (which is a heated floor) Two couches and both have ample storage in them. Both couches can be made into beds. The co-pilot chair turns into a recliner it is awesome. The engine is a 385 Cat with a 6 speed Allison. The payload is 3,800 pounds. Bose surround sound. Two TV's which we will trade out for LCD's but that comes after solar panels which this rig does not have. This rig has a bigger refrigerator then the Rexhall, but it is a side by side. The dishwasher works very well. The washer/dryer is wonderful too. I have been washing everyday. The storage bays are huge. I love the fact that with the push of a button from inside the rig we can lock all the outside bays. The computer table is great, lots of room for all my STUFF. A very quiet diesle generator will make our boondocking friends happy and us too. We will only be getting about 7 miles a gallon. So we need to slow down a little. A back up camera that does all kinds of things but we do not know how to work it. READ THE MANUAL! We are but we can only read so fast. As I said before Maggie actually tells us when the holding tanks are full. There is also a man who talks to us, he does a safety check when we take off. He tells you that all is ok to leave or the antenna is still up and your bays are open or the front door is not closed. WE NEED ALL THE HELP WE CAN GET! The antenna is electric. This rig is self leveling. We also have something called smart tire and that lets us know how much air is in each tire and warns us if one is low. Lastly, we have an alarm system that no one knows how to work.

A New Motorhome for us!

We delivered and sold the Rexhall Aerbus on May 6th, 2005 in Elko, Nevada.
We drove up to Boise, Idaho to check out a Country Coach, Intrigue but could not make a deal. We had seen a 2000 Country Coach Magna online that we liked. We made the phone call drove for two days to get to Indio, California and we are now the owners of a 2000 Country Coach, Magna. We are so excited and happy. We are finding new stuff everyday and call the owner with questions like, 'what is this and where is that".
