Punkin Center - Roosevelt
Lake - Globe Loop 11/10/18
On Saturday November 10th
we will have a one day
touring event of the Punkin Center, Roosevelt Lake, Globe, loop. To many
of you, this will be a familiar route as we have done it four times in
the past. We selected the 10th because we felt any later date
was too close to Thanksgiving Day on the 22nd
folks start preparation for the 4 day holiday weekend.
We will begin the
tour at the Target shopping center parking lot in Fountain Hills located
at the intersection of Saguaro and Shea Blvds. We’ll meet in front of
the Target store, please plan to arrive at 9:00 AM and we'll depart at
9:15 AM. There is a Starbucks in
the lobby of Target and also restrooms. As always, please arrive with a
full fuel tank, there is fuel available in the general area east on
Shea. Please remember your club radio and name tags and this route
guide. I will bring along a couple of the new 5.0 watt,
Baofeng radios for any member who wishes to purchase one, $35 ea.
When departing the Target Center, we'll head
north on Hwy 87 for about 48 miles and turn east on Hwy 188. There is a
comfort stop available at Jake’s corner and we will pull in the lot and
park for 15 minutes. Afterward, we'll head east on 188 toward Punkin
Center, then on to Roosevelt Lake. We may stop for a scenic view
depending upon our schedule that will have us arrive for lunch at
Guayos On The Trail restaurant around 12:00 noon.
There is an option for the return route and that
would be to drive into Globe and pick up Hwy 60 back to the Valley. Most
of us chose to return on the same route we took outbound, the scenery is
totally different going the other way.
back your RSVP, as I need it for the restaurant.
