the corner of hwy 177 & 77 at Winkleman and we can stop there for a
comfort break and fuel if you need or want it. If you fill up there, it
will probably get you all the way home so there will be no additional
need for another fuel stop.

American Ave East in Oracle, the turn off is well marked. Remain on
American Ave East until the name changes to Mount Lemmon rd/hwy and

left on hwy 77 and head West to Oracle Junction, about 10 miles. At that
junction, pick up hwy 79 North to Florence and Apache Junction. It痴 75
miles from Oracle Jct to Apache Jct. & hwy 60, turn West on 60 to get
back to the Valley and home. If you prefer, you can return home on the
same route we took to get there, your choice.
Looking forward to a club event since there has been none since our
Christmas Party. Hopefully, everyone has recovered from all the holiday
activities and ready for a new year full of fun club events. We have
something really special coming up in March in addition to the March
tour but those details will be sent out later.
The March club drive will be on Saturday March 5th, destination
undetermined at this time but will be forthcoming.
