Driftless area driving tour Aug. 7-9

The Driftless area in western Wisconsin has been a popular touring area for PCA members and their Porsches. The roads are twisty and picturesque. Dining options are plentiful and the camaraderie we enjoy with other Porsche owners is unmatched.

In the past, the region-sponsored tour has occurred in October to enjoy the fall colors in the beautiful area along the Mississippi River. With the Coronavirus keeping us, and our cars, cooped up for the last several months, it seemed like a good idea to do it in August.

We will plan each portion of the trip with social distancing and safety at the forefront.

Patty and Patrick Murphy are the tour hosts for this year’s Driftless region adventure.
Jim Lindenberg will lead the tour.

The tour will run from Aug. 7 to 9.

Our base will be the Radisson, LaCrosse. We will stay there two nights and depart from there on Saturday for a day of driving.

All who register will receive information on the starting point for Aug. 7.
