in Show Low, AZ. for lunch. (Link includes access to their menu.)
We値l meet at Goldfield Road off interstate 60
at exit 198. I believe this is Apache Junction. Turn right at the bottom
of the off ramp and you will see a Chevron station about 300 yards to
the south on the east side of Goldfield Road. We値l meet there at 9:00
AM and depart at 9:15 AM, approximately.
We値l get back on Interstate 60 and travel east
through Superior, Miami, and Globe - a 55 mile drive - and we値l stop in
Globe at the Chevron station at the far east end of town. There is a
traffic light at that intersection. We値l take a 15 or 20 minute comfort
break and also fuel if you need it.
Following our break there, we will drive north
on Hwy 60 through the Salt River Canyon to Show Low which is 87 miles
through some beautiful, scenic and fun-to-drive roads. When we reach
Show Low, we will be at the intersection of Hwy 60 and Hwy 260 (which
takes you west to Heber & Payson).
At this intersection, continue on hwy 60 and Licano痴 is about ｽ
mile further on the right hand side of the street,
. Their address is 573 W. Deuce of Clubs and their phone
number is 928 537 8220. We expect to arrive sometime between 12:00 and
12:30 and we have reservations for our group. Just tell the receptionist
you are with the Arizona BMW Z Series Club.
If we are running early for our ETA we can use
the extra time to refuel for the return trip. The weather forecast as of
today for the 13th is a high of 52 degrees and sunny, but
some strong winds may be present.
Please bring this route guide with you, along
with your club name tag and your communication radio. If you wish to
purchase the much better and more powerful
Boafeng radio, a full 5.0 watts, let me know in advance and I will
bring a new one with me; the cost is only $35.00 and is far superior to
the store bought ones that are only 0.5 watts.
There are two routes to return home - your
choice. Either return the same way we came up, or take Hwy 260 west
through Heber, Payson and then south on Hwy 87 to Fountain Hills.
Please email me your RSVP in a
timely manner so I will have a head count for the restaurant.
