03/15/14 - Oracle Tour


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     

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 station and convenience store will be on the right. We’ll assemble there at 9:15 AM and depart at 9:30 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 to Globe is approximately 70 miles. There will be some traffic congestion east of Apache Junction due to the renaissance festival but it will be a minor and brief inconvenience.

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.  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. you can't miss it.

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. Somewhere along the way we will find a gas station and fuel up.

The scenery on highway 77 is picture post card stuff and should be beautiful in March. 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 a copy of this guide.  And an Arizona state map is always good to have along as well.

As always, I will need your RSVP for the restaurant head count, please be prompt with this.
