Beat the heat! Roadrunner BMW CCA will escape to higher altitudes for a day trip, with a nice early start to get out of the valley before we broil. We will drive as a group up to Show Low (6345’) for lunch. Afterwards, folks can explore the area on their own or drive back to Phoenix using their choice of routes.
Note the earlier than usual Check-in time – so that we truly can Beat the Heat!
Check-in at 7:00am;
Driver’s Meeting at 7:15am:
Chevron Fuel Station
3265 S Goldfield Rd
Apache Junction, AZ 85219
The group will depart, caravan style, promptly at 7:30am and drive northeast up beautiful US-60 until reaching Show Low at around 10:30am. This is about 140 miles. There will be a drive leader, as well as a secondary group coordinator, to keep the group together and help ensure safe travels for our members and the general public.
We have a reserved room for brunch/lunch at Sweetheart’s Cafe.
For the drive home, everyone is on his/her own. The fastest way home is via I-60. A slower, more scenic route is along the Mogollon Rim and the Tonto National Forest, using AZ-260 and then AZ-87; this route is around 170 miles.
Of note is that there is a Culver’s in Payson that some members find difficult to drive by.
Please RSVP no later than July 31st below in order to reserve your spot for the drive and be sure to include first names for all attendees so we can prepare name tags. Wait a minute after clicking once on the Confirm RSVP button to allow the system time to process your request – you will be transferred to a new web page.
