Oracle Drive - 02/02/2013
We値l be touring to Oracle, AZ on February 2,
I realize we did this same tour in October of 2012 but our
destinations are somewhat limited in the wintertime when we prefer not to go to
the North country. In any case, this is always a beautiful scenic tour and the
food and accommodations at the Inn are always spot on.
The previously mentioned go kart driving event is on
the back burner waiting for more response, so it is not anything we will be
doing in January unless I receive more interest from the members. I値l keep
you informed as the process develops or doesn稚.
Our destination will be Oracle, AZ and the Oracle Inn
& Steakhouse for lunch where we have a private banquet room reserved. Here
is their phone number in the event you need it Ph: (520) 896-3333 http://www.oracleinn.com/
Info on Oracle http://oracletown.com/
Starting point will be exit 197, Tomahawk Road.,
off the HWY 60. We will meet at the Chevron on the N.W. corner.
When you come down the ramp, turn left under the
highway and the Chevron and convenience store will be on the right. We値l assemble there at 9:00 AM and depart at
9:15 AM. We値l take highway 60 all the way to Globe and we will stop at
the Chevron gas station and convenience store in Globe at the east end of town
for 15 or 20 minutes for a comfort break. This first leg from the Tomahawk Road
Chevron station to Globe is approximately 70 miles.
We値l head east out of Globe on Highway 60 and in
just a short distance turn right on Highway 77 south. It will be approximately
70 miles to the next turn which is American Way in Oracle. Look first for Tiger
Mine Road and American Way is about ｽ mile further south. Turn left on American
Way and follow it west to north Evergreen Drive and turn south, the Oracle Inn
& Steakhouse should be on your immediate left.
Following our stay in Oracle we will backtrack our
route north on highway 77 approximately 40 miles to the town of Winkelman, where
we will pick up highway 177 north through the towns of Hayden, Kearny,
Riverside, Kelvin and finally into Superior. Comfort or fuel stops will be
decided along the way and called out on the radio. From Superior, we will head
west on highway 60 for a return to Phoenix.
The scenery on highway 77 is picture post card stuff
and should be beautiful in October with the fall color change. This is truly a
beautiful drive and I am sure the meal at the Oracle Inn & Steakhouse will
also be excellent, we have eaten there previously.
Please have a full fuel tank at the start of the tour
and remember to bring along your FRS radio and always have an Arizona state map
handy and you may want a light jacket.
always, I will need your RSVP for the restaurant head count, please be prompt
