Here’s that detailed itinerary I’ve been promising you for the first two days of our Western America Adventure Tour. We’re providing this information so you’ll know our routes and where we’re going to spend the night each evening. We want to share that info so you can hook up with us for the ride, and so you’ll know where we’ll be in the evening if you want to catch a test ride on the RX3. I’ll be making similar posts as the ride progresses so you’ll know where to meet us.
Day 1 (15 July 2015)
We’re going to roll out of Azusa at 5:00 a.m. and we’ll head east on the 210 until it merges with the 10 east of San Bernardino. We’ll stop for breakfast at Grandma’s County Kitchen and continue on the 10 past Palm Springs. We’re in for a real treat after that…we’ll pick up the south end of Joshua Tree National Park and take an easy roll through the Park. Boys, make sure your camera batteries are charged!
After exiting the upper end of Joshua Tree National Park, we’re heading north through the Mohave until we hit Amboy (get ready for some great photo ops at Roy’s and the Amboy Crater, and yes, I know that sounds like the name of an ’80s rock group).
A quick right on Route 66 (yes, that Route 66), more amazing desert landscapes, and maybe we’ll see a bighorn sheep or two if we’re lucky.
A bit more freeway follows, we’ll cross the Colorado River into Arizona, and then we’re calling it a night in Kingman. We’ll have clocked an amazing 362 miles on our first day.
In Kingman, we’re staying at the Best Western Wayfarer Inn at 2815 East Andy Devine Avenue. I’m guessing we’ll be there around 5:00 p.m. If you want to catch an RX3 test ride, that’s where we’ll be. My advice is to be there around 7:00 or so.
Day 2 (16 July 2015)
Day 2 is our Grand Canyon Day. Wow, this is going to be fun. Here’s what the Day 2 route looks like…
When we call it a day on Day 2, we’ll be at the Clarion Inn at 751 South Navaho Drive in Page, Arizona. Day 2 will be a 310 mile day. Same thing, folks…I’m guessing we’ll be there around 5:00 p.m. If you want to catch a ride, please show up around 6:30 or 7:00 that night.
You’ll also be able to see what we’re doing by following our CSC Facebook page, and if you want to know more about the RX3, please check out the CSC website.
