This year was the first time the SEAT June Overnighter was held
in Prescott, Arizona. The host hotel was the Hotel St Michael
located at the intersection of Gurley and Whiskey Row - THE down
town of the down town in Prescott. Super location to meet up
after a day’s ride.
It wasn’t an easy ride up to Prescott. The heat this year has
been off the scale and the weekend of the 7th through the 9th of
June saw some near record temperatures. Good that the
temperature in Prescott was ten to fifteen degrees cooler than
Tucson or Phoenix.
This weekend was Territorial Days in Prescott and there was an
event on every corner. The Court House was surrounded by 100 or
more vendors selling household and personnel gadgets & gismos of
every kind. It took us close to four hours to check them all
out. Nice that the park trees provided cooling shade.
Dinner was at the Prescott Brewery right across the street from
the St Michael. They did us nice by putting us upstairs in a
small veranda area. We had plenty of room and the service was
very good. So was the food…and the beer! There were 23 SEAT
members and guests gathered around the two tables. Nice turn out
considering the heat we all had to ride through.
Members present: Deryle & Wanda Mehrten, Terry & Cheryl Smart,
