We currently have a Block of Rooms under Chicagoland Mustang Club. Please mention CMC when requesting a room reservation.
Due to the very busy weekend in the Gelena & Dubuque area with many major events occurring, hotel rooms are very limited, so be sure to book your reservation by May 15th (or we can't guarantee you a room).
What is this about?
This will encompass a two day cruise spanning 2 days and over 300 miles through some of the most scenic roads in Illinois, including a full cruise of the famous Stagecoach Trail, lunch at Poopy’s Pub in Savannah, IL, a cruise up through Iowa along the Mississippi River, an overnight stay in historic Galena, IL.
Day 2 involves a cruise north up through Wisconsin (including some mystery roads ) before turning back to Illinois and wrapping up mid day Sunday.
What if I can’t make it Saturday? Or Sunday?
For those that cannot commit to the overnight stay, or have other commitments, this cruise is still for you. There will be an opportunity Saturday to return back to Chicagoland after Poopy’s day one, or for those wanting to join Sunday you can simply head out to Galena Sunday AM and catch us at breakfast ☺ . You’ll miss over half the fun either way, but at least get out a bit.
Word of warning to tuned cars– both 93 octane and E-85 become tough to find west of Freeport, so be advised. We have used a couple of station finders and maps to try and ensure the route passes a few of those stations, but no promises. Longest stretch on this cruise as planned with no gas is about 110 miles.
Stay tuned in this thread as more details are added. We wanted to get this out right away as reservations for overnight are very limited.
