Club trip to Punkin Center
Saturday, March 5, 2005.
On Saturday March 5th, we will have a one day touring
event of the Punkin Center, Roosevelt Lake, Globe, loop. To many of you, this
will be a familiar route as we have done it three times in the past. As best
that I can calculate, this will be about 195 miles round trip, and 227 miles if
we go into Payson.
We will begin the tour at the Target
shopping center parking lot in Fountain Hills located at the intersection
of Saguaro and Shea Blvds, east end of the parking lot. Plan to arrive at
9:00 AM and we'll depart at 9:15 AM. As always, please arrive with a full fuel
tank, there is fuel available in the general area east on Shea. Please remember
your club radio and name tags. Here's a list of
There is an option for our first stop........We may go all
the way to the Casino in Payson for a
comfort break but that adds 32 miles round trip to the tour. The other
alternative is to make the first stop at Jake's corner or Punkin Center but I
don't remember if comfort facilities are available there. In either case, we'll
decide at the departure point before we leave.
We'll head north on Hwy 87 and if we omit Payson,
we'll turn east on Hwy 188 and head toward Jake's Corner and Punkin Center, then
on to Roosevelt Lake. We
may stop for a scenic view depending upon our schedule that will have us arrive
for lunch in Globe
around 12:00 noon.
We'll fuel up in Globe and have lunch at the Country
Kitchen. Following lunch, we'll head west on Hwy 60 back to Apache Jct
and the 60 Fwy back to town.
