Tour: Spring Kick-off Tour 2023

Join us for our kickoff spring tour for 2023! Traditionally, this tour has been called More Smiles to the Mile and this year will bring the same vibe so pray for good weather. Jose at XXX Rootbeer drive-In in Issaquah has graciously volunteered to host us as our staging area prior to their official opening time.  Along the way, we will try a new little "diversion" around Lake Joy since we have never done that before.  The rest stop will be in Snohomish.  From there we will also take a slightly different route, but will end up in Monroe at Tuscano’s Italian Kitchen where you can order off a special menu they prepared specially for us.    This tour will fill up fast if past years are any indication!  We are limiting attendance to 48 cars due to Tuscano's capacity.  The only way we will go above 48 cars is if we get a "group's worth of cars (e.g. 12 or so) who want to go on the tour, but do not want to eat lunch at Tuscano's.  We're also giving some priority to first time PNWR tour attendees, thus the question on the registration form.




Arrive at the staging area starting at 8:00 AM, but no later than 8:30!
Driver's meeting at 8:30 AM
First group departs at 9:00 AM, followed by other groups with 10 minutes spacing each
Lunch in Monroe at Tuscano's Italian Kitchen for those who choose that option.
