In keeping with the tradition of the Route 66 event, this will once again be a multi-destination run. Here's the run down -

Thursday April 21st - Arrive in Scottsdale for BBQ and shenanigans at the Wills' house.

Friday the 22nd, Depart Scottsdale and head for the hills! Fountain Hills that is. Check out the world's largest fountain and then blast up the Beeline Highway through the saguaros and past Roosevelt Lake. We eventually take on all the twists and turns of Salt River Canyon and call it a day in the cool pines of Show Low, AZ.

Saturday the 23rd - Depart Show Low and drive through the largest stand of Ponderosa Pines in the World(yes, you read that right!) as we cross the Mogollon Rim making our way through Payson and then finally historic Cottonwood for Saturday night.

Sunday the 24th - Call it a weekend and head home!

These are some of the twistiest and most scenic roads in AZ, hope you can make it! More specifics will follow but we didn't want you to use "You didn't have enough notice" as an excuse to not go! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Yep, I'm in... we're seeing a few places that I haven't been to in 40 years. Great route, great job Michael!

Are you planning an interesting route back to Phoenix on Sunday?

Assuming my car can resist the call of the jackstands, I will be there.

Haven't even thought about that. I'm usually ready to get home by Sunday so nothing out of the way for me.

Looks like a great route! And yes, 17 really does suck!

Will have to hit at least part of it!

Any tour of Patrick this time? They gave away great T-shirts last time! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

It usually is. It was 98 on April 4th this year. We don't drive around much with the Targa off if the sun is up.

Not me. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

By Sunday I am all revved up and ready for more. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/burnout.gif)

MapQuest says less than 300 miles and 5 hours. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/idea.gif)
I figure 2 days and 800 miles to get back home to Las Vegas. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif)
Count on a blast into Oatman with a bonus night in Laughlin plus ? ? ? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

No tour planned this time around. That said, he is restoring a real 916....so if you want to come in early and check it out, I'm sure he would show you around!
