Take the cover off the Cat, check its vital signs, gas it up and come join us for the annual Dust-Off on Sunday, May 17, for a fun and eventful way to welcome the 2015 summer driving season. This year’s tour will begin in Castle Pines where we will meet in the parking lot of the DazBog Coffee shop at Castle Pines Parkway and Lagae Rd. (Exit 188 off I-25 and 0.5 miles west).
Meeting time will be 8:30 a.m., with a driver’s meeting at 9:00, and on the road by 9:15 to 9:30 a.m. We will drive down Daniels Park Rd., making our way to Sedalia where we will pick up CO 105 and skirt the foothills as we drive south through Palmer Lake and Monument crossing over I-25 on Baptist Road into El Paso County where we will continue east until we reach Fox Run Regional Park.
We will meet up again under a reserved covered park pavilion to sip champagne and juice, munch on strawberries and other snacks, and trade stories of the fabulous scenery. Expect the drive to the park to take about one hour and 15 minutes. We will take an approximate one hour break in the park to allow everyone enough time to enjoy the scenery, use facilities, and get ready for the second part of the drive.
>From the park, we will take about one hour to make our way back north, partly through the Black Forest, and then using CO 83 heading toward Parker. We will arrive at the superb new car museum, The Vehicle Vault, in time to enjoy a catered box lunch in our private dining room on the second floor and tour the 45-car museum under the tutelage of the cars’ owners (all cars in the museum are owned by one couple, the Dilleys.) Total drive time is about two hours and 15 minutes, total elapsed time to the Vehicle Vault will be just over three hours, and we will cover about 85 miles.
