After Cars & Coffee we will kick off the drive to Loess Hills, IA - As always, with our signature drives, we try to add a few twists to each year’s tour and this year features a BIG new upscale twist.
Here’s how the day will unfold: Since Aug 8th is a Cars and Coffee Saturday, we’ll meet in the AMC movies
parking lot next to the Cozy Café in Johnston. The Cozy opens at 7 am so get there early if you wish to have breakfast
before our drivers’ meeting by the cars at 8:15. We will be leaving as soon as we can and no later than 9 AM. Our
morning route will take us west to the White Pole Road, which will take us to the Loess Hills Scenic Byway in Council
Bluffs. From here, you’ll get a good eye-opening sample of what you’re in for on this great drive after lunch.
Trail boss Jeff David has arranged for the group to return to one of our old favorite lunch stops, the 4th Street Grill in
Logan, IA. Owners Bill and Becky will be ready for us in our own private room to accommodate safe distancing. The
menu will be open to us including their famous pizza and killer burgers. PLEASE remember to bring CASH for lunch so
that we can settle our lunch tabs quickly and be back in the saddle in 90 minutes.
Now for the FUN part! For those of you who are new to the club and/or may have never driven the LH Scenic Byway,
these are arguably the best driving roads that Iowa has to offer. The pavements are great, the hills and curves are
thrilling and the scenery is drop-dead gorgeous from Logan to Sioux City!
By about 4:30 PM, we will arrive at The Marriott South Sioux City Riverfront Hotel, where we’ll be having dinner and
spending the night. We will be having our evening meal from their excellent restaurant, Kahill’s Chop House, in the
private Highlands Room, which overlooks the Missouri River and the downtown Sioux City skyline. With safe distancing
in mind, we will be seated 6 persons per 8-top table. Please note the pictures below.
We have reserved a block of 15 rooms, 8 kings, 7 queen doubles, at the great rate of $104. To reserve your room under
the “SCHONESLAND Porsche Club” room block, you will need to call the hotel at 402-494-4000.
These rooms will be held for us until Saturday, July 25th-that’s only TWO WEEKS from this Saturday, so please check
your calendars and lets see you on August 8th.
After you reserve your room, please email Jeff David at email@example.com with your intentions and how many
persons will be in your car. We will need to have an accurate headcount for our lunch and dinner hosts.
On Sunday morning, everyone does their own thing on the return, but many choose to drive the LH Trail back to DSM. If
you won’t have the time to do that, you can take I-29 to I-680/80 and be back in Central IA in 2hrs and 40 minutes.
If you have any questions about this trip, please call Jeff David at 515-229-5616.
