Oracle, AZ - 03/05/11
First of all, we’ll be touring on Saturday, March 5th
the club has been in existence for 13 years now, it is becoming more and more
difficult to select one day tours that we have not done in the past. However, I
have come up with something a bit different and it should be perfect for the
expected weather in early March. A few year ago we did a drive south on highway
77 but our destination was different than this tour.
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/ There is
also a nearby museum that we can visit if the group is interested. We will
assemble for the start of the tour at: exit 196, Idaho Rd., off the HWY 60. We will meet
at the Chevron on the N.W. corner.
you come down the ramp, turn left under the highway and the Chevron and
convenience store will be on the right. We’ll assemble there at 9:00 AM and depart at 9:15 AM.
We’ll take highway 60 all the way to Globe and we will stop at a gas station
and convenience store in Globe for 15 or 20 minutes for a comfort break. This
first leg from the Chevron to Globe is approximately 70 miles.
head east out of Globe on Highway 60 and in just a short distance turn right on
Highway 77 south. It will be approximately 60 miles to the next turn which is
American Way. Look first for Tiger Mine Road and American Way is about ˝ 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. If the members are interested, there is the Acadia
Ranch Museum just a few blocks away to the east of the Inn. If the interest is there, we can visit the museum on our way out of town after
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. From Superior, we
will head west on highway 60 for a return to Phoenix.
scenery on highway 77 is picture post card stuff and should be green and plush
in March. This is truly a beautiful drive and I am sure the meal at the Oracle
Inn & Steakhouse will also be excellent.
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.
send me your RSVP so I can start counting heads for the restaurant.
forward to another great tour,
Paul Ebeyer, President
