Hey guys, the Focaljet crowd is putting together a big drive/meet down to Tucson on August 15th. I'm going to try to come down for this as well with my Jeep, and it would be cool if we could get some NECO'ers out for this as well! Here's the Focaljet thread about the meet (must be a member to view).
Focaljet - Ford Focus Forums
Here's the tentative details (subject to change, I will update if they do)
West/Northsiders meet up at Fry's Electronics parking lot - Thunderbird Rd west of I-17
Depart to Eastside
Tempe/Ahwatukee members meet in the South parking lot of Arizona Mills (near Neiman Marcus, I believe). NOTE: The Phoenix people will not be stopping here to pick these folks up, this is a second caravan to Signal Butte! Maybe if we time it right we can get on the freeway near each other, but don't plan on the entire group being together until Signal Butte!
Group gets together at Wal Mart Supercenter - Signal Butte south of US60
Top off tanks if needed, depart east to AZ79 at Florence Junction, south to Tucson
Arrive in Tucson, meet at Safeway at Oracle & Ina. Pick up BBQ supplies, drinks, etc.
Leave Safeway, drive over to Safeway at Catalina Hwy & Tanque Verde.
Gather group back up if we get split up at traffic lights, etc. If anyone thinks of anything last minute for BBQ, they can get it here real quick.
Head up Catalina Hwy up the mountain, stopping at vista's on the way up.
2:15-2:30ish - Arrive at Marshall Gulch, have BBQ lunch
3:30ish - Summerhaven, Ski Valley, head up to peak of Mt. Lemmon? We can decide up there if we wanna do anything.
4-5ish - Head back down mountain. Maybe meet up at a place to hang out for a while, then Phoenix-area members head back up to Phoenix.
Here's what we've got going so far
