Tour to Tucson Meet

February 5, 2013
by Tod Fitch,

This will be a three day tour, entirely avoiding freeways between the San Jose area and Tucson. Two days if you are picking up the tour as we go through Southern California. First two days are long drives so that we can have time for some sightseeing stops in Southern Arizona on the third day.

  • Day 1: San Jose to Hesperia/Victorville via two lane highways and back roads. 388 miles and 9 hours of driving through widely varying landscape from wildflower filled valleys, oil well covered hills, pine covered mountains and small towns by natural lakes and then into the high desert with Joshua Trees.

  • Day 2: Hesperia to Gila Bend, Arizona. 356 miles and 7 1/2 hours of driving through mostly the Mohave Desert but getting a little into the Sonoran Desert.

  • Day 3: Gila Bend to Tucson, only 158 miles and 3 1/2 hours of driving giving plenty of time to stop at Casa Grande National Monument and Biosphere 2.

Estimated daily driving times are based on a maximum speed of 50 MPH. Most of the distance will be on two lane roads although, especially going through towns, there will be some four (and more) lane sections. All roads will be paved. Absolutely no freeway travel at all! Lead car will be a stock 1933 so all you people with newer cars should have no trouble keeping up.

There are some other options for dividing the drive up and even for the last day's sightseeing. Early confirmed participants can give input on their desires about the route and sightseeing stops planned.

If you are interested in this drive, please contact tour leader Tod Fitch as soon as you can.
