Oracle Grill & Steakhouse -
Our destination will be Oracle, AZ and the
Oracle Inn & Steakhouse for lunch where we have a private banquet room
Starting point will
be exit 197, Tomahawk Road., off the HWY 60.
We will meet at the gas station on the N.E. 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 9:30 AM and depart
at 9:45 AM. We’ll take highway 60 through Superior and Miami all the way
to Globe and we will stop at the Shell gas station and convenience store
in Globe at the far east end of town for 15 or 20 minutes for a comfort
break and fuel if you need it. This first leg from the Tomahawk Road to
Globe is approximately 70 miles.
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 the Oracle Inn &
Steakhouse will be on your right.
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 beautiful. 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, they
have a great menu selection.
Please have a full
fuel tank at the start of the tour and remember to bring along your
communications radio and always have an Arizona state map handy and you
may want a jacket it may be cool in the higher elevations but I am
it will be a great top down drive for the entire
I will need your RSVP for the
restaurant head count, please be prompt with this. If there is a yellow
highlight after your name we have not heard from you one way or the
other so please RSVP. I already removed the names of the members who
said they cannot attend this tour, if I have an error somewhere please
let me know and I'll correct it.
