2018 Memorial Day tour, Grand Junction, CO

The BMCU Memorial Day Tour 2018, will be to Grand Junction, CO.

Several years ago, a group of us came home from Moab, going through Grand Junction. We were impressed with the scenery and fun roads and put this destination in our memory banks. On this year’s Torrey Tour, when we asked for suggestions as where to go in 2018, Grand Junction was suggested several times.

Your Memorial Day Tour Team is already well into the planning stages for next season’s Memorial Day Tour. I know that this NEW destination is going to be a fun one. Some of us are going to be staying an extra day and returning to the SLC area on Tuesday. You may want to think about joining us, if you can.  

Mark your calendars now for the Grand Junction, CO Memorial Day Tour. May 26 – 28, 2018.

After lunch, we will continue south on UT 10.  There will be a brief stop at I-70 to gather everyone to make certain that we passUNDER the I-70, and onto UT 72.   Now this is a road worth waiting for; nice and twisty that our vehicle like!    Continuing on, we will come to the Junction with UT Hwy 24 where a left hand turn will take us east into Torrey, about 15 miles down the road.

Here’s to a great, safe and trouble free Tour.

Great drive to Taggarts

Thank you all for coming to the Saturday Drive. The weather was cool and a little overcast and that made for a very comfortable drive. The scenery was very pretty through the small communities, I like the small twisty roads lined with fence post and green rolling hills why even the dandelion’s put on a show.

A special thanks to Drew for taking the helm and treating us to a view of Croydon. Taggarts took such good care of us as always the food and service was great. It was a very fun day because of all of you, thanks for showing up!

Happy Motoring!

On May 6th were having our Coalville to Taggarts Drive. When I made reservations for our group. The folks at Taggarts requested that we arrive at their restaurant around 11:00 so they can service our group better, hence the early starting time.

Having exited 4 we’ll turn Left onto State Road 248 driving East until we reach the first intersection then turning left to get us onto Browns Canyon Road. Proceeding up and over towards Peoa, then turning left onto Hyw 32. From there we’ll follow 32 through Rockport, Warship, Hoytsville Rd., Coalville, Echo Dam Rd.
