Subject: Re: USA Roadtrip Planning Info

We've been AAA members for years for all the already mentioned services. They also have a website and you can find out about traffic tieups etc. They may even have the trip tiks available online. I am going to check into that for an upcoming cross country trip we are planning. We take advantage of our membership for motel discounts and I just found out yesterday that when you inquire about renting a car - memberships in AAA, Sam's Club and AARP can bring your rental rate down. Look into a family or gold membership if you want everyone who drives to be able to call them for road service. We also used to get travelers checks from them but now we are being converted to ATM. The staff in our town is very knowlegeable and helpful.

Happy trails, Barb in Grand Rapids
