Oracle, AZ - 10/27/2012
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)
Info on Oracle.
Starting point will be exit 197, Tomahawk Road., off the
HWY 60. We will meet at the gas station on the N.W. corner. When you come down the
ramp, turn left under the highway and the gas station 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 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 gas station to Globe is
approximately 70 miles. We will separate the tour into two groups, Group
"A" for the faster drivers and Group "B" for those who
prefer to stick close to the posted speed limits. In most cases this results in
similar arrival times for both groups at the destination.
We'll 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 ½ 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 Winkleman, 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 green and plush in February. 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.
As always, I will need your RSVP
for the restaurant head count, please be prompt with this.
