I could not imagine that the weather was going to be like this, temps near seventy and sixty two up on top in Eden. Some years it has been cold and blustery but not this time. At the first stop everyone with a convertible dropped their hoods to take it all in. As before I lead our members up near the hills the whole way to Ogden Canyon, traveling at a touring pace and slowing to keep us together as there are two little tricks to the Main Street route, one in Bountiful and one in Farmington but all kept right along.
I plan to follow last years plan for the Around the Lake tour on April 12th. with perhaps starting a bit earlier as it takes more time to get up to Kaysville on surface streets, 15 min, than I had thought but it all worked out just fine. All thoughts are welcome. I imagine weather to be fine at this point but will run the route a day or two prior and check with Weber Co.
The plan for this year’s drive:
- Start (leave) at Mojo Drive Thru Coffee, just south of 4th. S & 4th. W. in SLC at 8:00 am,
- A-Fresh market, 2nd. N & Main in Kaysville at 9:00 am,
- Rainbow Gardens, mouth of Ogden Canyon at 10:00 am,
- Steiny’s Sports Grill, 2nd. S. (119 S.) & 600 W. just N. of the water tower at the BDO in Ogden at Noon
Once again we celebrated St. Patrick’s Day at McCool’s Public House in Foothill Village on a perfect spring day with the temps getting up into the 60’s and as suggested our members arrived right near 11:00 am where we took our usual place back in the bar area. The terrific fare was what we have come to expect at any of the McCool’s locations, the Perfect Irish Coffee was just that and Kassie our server was a “pro”, pleasant and efficient. My sign in sheet and clipboard were conveniently left safely in the car but our usual dedicated members were there including a new Brit car fan Paul Carlsen. After brunch Jim and Kevin took off up Immigration Canyon for a drive, Paul and I being from Ogden headed north going by Eaglewood Golf Course where the show will be at on July 2nd and the route is a no-brainer that I’ll detail as that date draws near. Another beautiful day enjoying a BMCU activity.
