How It Works:
Mustangs Across America plans and organizes the route of our drive, you show up and drive at your own pace. You do you own thing, and choose your own way to enjoy the ride. As a participant in our event, you are not forced to participate in any given side trip, tour, or local event we plan. Rather we organize and provide a palette of activity options for each stop that you can take part in or not.
Our event is set up for travel days that average 350 miles per day, some are shorter and some are longer but no longer than 400 miles. There are planned stop spots for lunch, rest breaks, and other suggested sight seeing opportunities. Our travel guide schedule is designed for an average speed of 60-65 mph which is well below the speed limit in most areas of our journey.
We set up blocks of discounted hotel rooms at each over night stop that allow for reasonably priced lodging at a variety of inexpensive to more premium locations. We choose locations that typically offer 2-3 choices and in close proximity to other shopping, food and services for over nights stays. You can choose to stay anywhere you choose however.
With MAA, you do not have to rush to meet a schedule. We do not attempt to herd our drive into an organized caravan formation as it is unsafe, difficult and stressful to do. We meet for a morning driver’s meeting each day to go over the route and any last minute details. After that, we encourage drivers to drive at their own pace and do their own thing. We simply provide a route for fun!
Our detailed event and route information is not published publicly, rather reserved only for registered participants. When you register online or by mail, you are given access to our online information data pile so you can begin planning your own trip with us.
Our registration packets described below are mailed to all USA entrants on or about 3/15/2014. All foreign participants in Canada and other countries will NOT be mailed their packets due to shipping costs, customs hassles and the time it takes for items to arrive. Foreign participants will be will-call only for their packets. A list of locations and times to pick these up will be provided to participants online and via email.

Online Access to Registered Participant Website Forum:
Until the entry packets are mailed out on or about March 15th, 2014, our primary way to communicate event information to our registered participants is email and our website. When you register you are required to provide an email address that all event information and news will be sent to. Additionally, we have a private section on our website forums just for registered participants. So when you register you will be granted access to this private part of the site that will include:
Detailed Event Route Schedules: This will allow you to see more precisely when and where the caravan will be so you can plan your own trip.
Discounted Hotel Block Rate Listings: Local hotels for each night will be listed for our over night stops, with special rates and block information for our participants.
Event Updates: The latest information on our event. As we move toward April of 2014, our event evolves and grows. Registered Participants are the first to get the latest news and information on whats happening!
