INFORMATION ON TREK FOR
Since we're not attending the BEAT this year, we are
planning our own club tour for the same dates, April 23 and 24. We'll be going
to the Painted Desert and Petrified Forest,
an area the Club has never before toured. The spring weather should be perfect
and with all the rain we've had the desert should be in maximum splendor. I'll
ask the planners to plan several stops for photo opportunities.
It will be an overnight trip and the planners are working
on the best location to sleep on Saturday night. All the details are below, at
the bottom of this page. Right now I need the RSVP
of anyone who wants to join in. I'm assuming that everyone who was on the BEAT
list will attend except for Corrigan and Lord, who I have already heard from.
Since time is short, please send your RSVP
promptly so I can forward the numbers to the planners.
Here's the net BEAT list
Here's a rundown of what we have planned for
April 23rd and 24th. Thanks (as usual) to John Blezenski for his normal
excellent work organizing this.
We'll leave early Saturday morning from Fountain Hills and
head to Holbrook via Payson and Heber. We'll lunch in Holbrook at Joe &
Aggie's Cafe, one of the old Route 66 landmarks. Following lunch we'll get gas.
Then we'll head off for a couple of hours exploring the Forest and Painted
Desert. When we re-group, we'll head west to Williams, AZ where we'll spend the
night at the Quality Inn Mountain Ranch. Depending on available time we may
leave I-40 for more rural roads, including a stretch of original Route 66.There
will be a group dinner in Williams.
On Sunday the tour will return to the Phoenix area via Hwy
89 through Chino Valley and Prescott. Our lunch stop is to be determined.
