We値l meet on Goldfield Rd exit 198 off Hwy
60. At the bottom of the ramp, you will see the Chevron station on the
east side of Goldfield Rd about 100 yds south, our meeting place. We値l
assemble there at 9:30 AM and depart at 9:45 AM. We値l take highway 60
to Globe where we will stop at the Chevron 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 Goldfield
Road to Globe is approximately 70 miles. We値l be passing through the
towns of Superior, Miami and a few others before we get to Globe.

Following our stay in Oracle we will backtrack
our route on highway 77 approximately 40 miles to the town of Winkleman,
corner of hwy 177. There is a gas station at that intersection if you
need it or a comfort break, the rest of us will wait for you. 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. Finding a restroom
in Superior can be challenging so be prepared to plan ahead.
The scenery on highway 77 & 177 is picture post
card stuff and fun roads to drive in our Z痴. This is truly a beautiful
drive and I知 sure you will enjoy it.
Please have a full fuel tank and name tag at the
start of the tour and remember to bring along your communications radio
and a copy of this tour guide. It痴 always a good idea to have an
Arizona state map handy.
Thank you and I look forward to some
prompt RSVP痴 so I can get this all
