2014 Corvette Show

National Corvette Caravan: August 28-30, 2014

2014 is here!  Do you enjoy a great road trip and gathering of Corvette enthusiasts? If so join us for the 2014 Caravan to the National Corvette Museum for the 20th Anniversary of the National Corvette Museum in beautiful Bowling Green, Kentucky. This event is scheduled once every five years and is the Event of the Year for Corvette owners!

Maybe you are new to the Corvette world, or maybe you do not know of the 2014 Caravan, so what is the 2014 Caravan? It is a gathering of Corvette enthusiasts from around the United States, Canada and several other countries. We form caravans of Corvettes from locations around the Country to make a great road trip to Bowling Green, Kentucky. This will be an event beginning in late August which will celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the National Corvette Museum on Labor Day weekend of 2014. Caravans will form from locations close to your home for this event so you can participate with thousands of other Corvette owners. Participants can join at various locations along the way.  We will caravan along scenic sections of old Route 66. What could be better than travelling along the Mother Road in your Corvette?

On Route 66 we will join with the Southern California, Southern Nevada and Southwestern Utah Caravan at Williams, AZ., Friday – August 22: we will join the S. Cal/ S. Nevada/ SW Utah Caravan.  A Meet & Greet and a Show and Shine car show are planned along Route 66 in the last town to be bypassed on the ‘Mother Road’.

Come and stay with us at Grand Canyon Bed and Breakfast for this event.  You won’t get another chance for five years.

De Berge Saddlery & Western Outfitters

April 28th, 2014 by Del & Sheryl Terry

On your way down Route 40

 or towards the Grand Canyon, you have to slooooow down (15 mph) and go to De Berge’s Saddlery and Western Outfitters on Rte 66 in downtown Williams, AZ.  Martha’s husband (from the East coast) loved the belts and couldn’t make up his mind about the designs… she quietly ordered  one of the designs as a Christmas gift and within a short time the belt was in her hands!  Beautiful hats and belts as well as other products. You’ll see it’s worth the stop in the “slow movin’” town of Williams to visit and shop the workshop/store.

Belt making at the De Berge Saddlery and Western Outfitters in Williams Arizona close to the Grand Canyon Bed and Breakfast

If you are into real western wear and not the drugstore cowboy variety, this is the place to go. Anything leather, from saddles to gun holsters to belts and boots, are made here to order. The leather smith is Tamara, a charming young lady with a gifted hand for shaping and tooling leather. She makes her own designs and custom fits; generally a 90 day lead time. Tamara has a clientele made up mostly of locals cowboys & Europeans, but while Alfred , (from the West coast), was there a Navajo man came in to have a gun belt made for himself. Can’t get more real than that. Thick solid leather tends to have a macho look to it, but in Tamara’s hands embossed with floral designs it also becomes extremely elegant for the ladies. While much of her work is custom, there are enough ready-made things in the shop to make it worthwhile to stop in Williams at the De Berge Saddlery for instant gratification of your leather and western wear urges as you transit the state or move toward the Grand Canyon.
