Absaroka Region – Road to Chico VI – Saturday, April 26, 2014

The annual Absaroka Region’s season kick off meeting.  Come and meet up with friends, old and new and wake your Porsche up from a long winter slumber.

Join us on Saturday, April 26 for a beautiful drive through Montana’s Paradise Valley to the northern entrance to Yellowstone National Park in Gardiner, Montana.  East River Road provides a twisting, turning road that is perfect for real sports cars like ours.  The natural beauty of the Paradise Valley, our namesake Absaroka Mountains and Yellowstone River accompany you along your drive.  Lunch for the group will be in Gardiner, Montana.

After lunch we’ll drive back towards Chico Hot Springs Resort where you can retreat to the pool, or enjoy a beverage in the Chico Saloon or both.

Spring time weather in April is always problematic.  It might rain, snow, be sunny, or all of the above, in any case, it’s going to be a fun day and the start of a fun driving season in the Absaroka Region (Porsche or not).  If you are coming on the drive, please let Stephanie Haider, Steve Homec, or Dan Cole know.  We have been known to leave people behind on at least 2 occasions.  We’d rather not do that in the future.
