    Cruise on Central

    Nancy Perry is doing another Cruise on Central event on Saturday 10-7-17 from 10 AM -7:30 PM. Central will be closed the width of Park Central Mall. Note they are shutting down at 7:30 - guess the Geritol wears out by then, or the Viagra kicks in ?
  13. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this run is not possible due to road conditions. Yesterday I had to go to Flagstaff, so I drove the cruise route to get there. I discovered there is major construction in progress on Lake Mary Road between Happy Jack and Flagstaff. There are 7 MILES of dirt/gravel/rocks where the pavement has been completely removed. In numerous places the rocks/gravel between the wheel ruts was so deep my Vette was bottoming out and scraping. I crept through there at 10-15 miles an hour, but I have damage to the splitter and I need to put the Vette up on a lift to see what kind of damage I may have done to the undercarriage. Sadly, there are no good alternatives. I-17 northbound on Saturdays right now sucks with heavy traffic, and is a boring drive at best. Detouring off Hwy 87 from Payson down Hwy 260 to Camp Verde puts us right back on I-17 heavy northbound traffic, and into Flagstaff at least an hour later, right in the middle of lunch hour when the Brewery is very busy. Their parking lot is iffy at best, and at lunchtime there is no way a group of us will even find parking, much less be able to eat lunch together. So, this is a bust. I will try to do it again next year – at least Lake Mary Road should have good pavement then. . . Spend a day out of the heat. . . Saturday August 19th, cruise to Flagstaff via the back roads. Route: Payson/Strawberry/Happy Jack/Flagstaff. Lunch at Beaver Street Brewery: http://www.beaverstreetbrewery.com/ The Brewery opens at 11:00. They DO NOT take reservations, even for large groups. So, the plan is to be there when they open the doors at 11:00. . . Back into the blast furnace via I-17. 8:00 a.m. meet for a prompt 8:30 a.m. departure. MEET POINT: Chevron gas station, southeast corner of Beeline (Hwy 87) and Ft. McDowell Road. This is the second traffic light north of the intersection of Beeline and Shea Blvd (approximately 2 miles). Turn right off Beeline, and an immediate right into the Chevron.
