Cars and Coffee and UMMO cruise--June 6th -- Chanhassen, MN

Post by curt_gendron » Tue May 26, 2015 1:00 pm

On Saturday, June 6th, we'll be doing a dual event. We will do the regular Cars and Coffee meet up at the Holiday Gas Station. Then around 10:30am, we'll be driving to the Chaska Target store to meet up with other Mitsus to do the first Upper Midwest Mitsu Owners cruise. The cruise will leave the Target parking lot at 11:30am. If you want to not get up super early and just meet us at Target, that is fine. Or obviously you can come to C&C and not the cruise. More details on the UMMO cruise can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/events/486499734847002/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

For the Cars and Coffee portion of this event, lets meet up a little earlier at 6:30am at Holiday: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Holid ... afae2dddef" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Then we will leave the gas station at 6:45am sharp. The Cars and Coffee lot is filling up fast this year.

later,
Curt

Yes, I was planning on doing that cruise. I know there is still one road closed near Blakely, but I think its Hwy 60, which we don't take. Do you know?

Not offhand, I haven't driven it in a couple years. If you've still got the map, email it to me and I can try and do a precheck this Sat if I'm not working.

Here is the planned route I was going to take on June 6th: https://www.google.com/maps/dir/44.8267 ... 15!1m0!3e0" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

It starts at the Target in Chaska. Then goes down to Henderson on Hwy 40 and 6. Then comes back towards Blakely and Belle Plaine. Stop at DQ in Belle Plaine, then go over the bridge and head north on Hwy 40. Ending at a park in Chaska. This route is slightly different then our old cruise. Starting and stopping points are different. If you can check out any or all of this route, that would be awesome!

thanks,
Curt

I'll see what I can do! My schedule Sat is in limbo, but I might be able to run it quick in the morning before work or right after.

Route looks good! County 40 just south of East Union is blocked, apparently a bridge is closed. The detour is well marked (County 50 west to 41 south to 52 east back to 40 south) and in pretty good shape. The intersection at 50 and 41 has some gravel on the corner, but the rest of it is in good shape. County 6 has a narrow spot a couple miles past 25, but they've got it signed, coned, and it's only one little spot. They put up stop signs and told traffic to alternate directions at that spot. I didn't eat at the Dairy Queen, and an eagle didn't drop a snake on my car.

This is the revised route. Not too different. https://goo.gl/maps/ohjfL" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Thank you so much Andy!!! I appreciate that. That gives me a lot more confidence in this cruise!

Sounds like Andy and Mike are both going to the Cars and Coffee this Saturday, but are not going on the cruise afterwards. If you are planning on doing one or the other, or both, chime in?

And if you are going on the cruise, bring an FRS radio.

Thanks,
Curt

So did the cruise and C&C happen? I haven't seen any pics yet or just might have missed them. I would have gone, but Im on the road right now.

I didn't take any pics at C and C. Mike, Andy, and Ryan went to that. None of them went on the cruise. We had five cars start the cruise. But only three of us finished the cruise. I posted a couple of pics on the FB event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/486499734847002/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
