Howdy Folks!

Please take a look at my "new to me" '99 Magna...

She's a 36 footer, 385hp Cat C10, has every option available, is pristine on the inside, has a few "dings" on the outside (like me!), rides and drives like a dream... Can you believe I stole it for 85K?

I'm gonna make a few short "shakedown" trips, then head for the Valley and when spring arrives, will be heading for the Grande Canyon, Yellowstone, the Tetons, and all points in between that strike my fancy. Might even head for Alaska...

My name is Buck, I am gainfully un-employed, and I intend to have an adventure every day for the rest of my life.

Good luck Buck with your newer Motor Home and as you head down or up the road just keep checking the weather for the places you are heading as some have snow pretty late in the spring.

Congratulations! She sure looks like a well cared for rig. Better stock up on Windex. With all those mirrors you're going to need it.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Thanks for the good wishes R&L !

Will take your advice and keep a weather eye out... I am going to head for the Valley first... then will head for Southern NM, camp my way up thur Utah and Colorado as I follow the Spring thaw... Not gonna be in any hurry... When I find a place I like, will stay awhile and explore. I have the rest of my life to do this...

Hello Bob and thanks for the congratulations! It does look longer than 36'... Looks like a panther on the prowl...

the owner told me it was a 40 footer, but when I looked the floor plan up on the CC Archives, it said: "36' Chef's Choice", so I went back with a tape and sure 'nuff, it is a little over 37' bumper to bumper...
