YES, I do have an ALTERNATIVE for you, GREGG!
ALLSTATE MOTOR CLUB, based in ILLINOIS...
it's cheaper than AAA, and they will tow you as far as you need to go, just about....
(hopefully they still have that policy, anyway..)
Once , I got towed from Rt 35, Red Bank area all the way up to Freehold area, right to my sisters driveway!! I had just gone over a big pothole that busted both my tires!!
The last year or so I tried AAA, mostly cause I just wanted to get all their up to date Tour Books....(they have an office only about a mile or so away from me)
The only thing that's not fair, IMO, is that hotels often offer the AAA discount, but rarely an Allstate (or similar discount)
No problem as in 3 months, I'll qualify for my AARP discount....
(that's okay, as 50 is the new 30 !!)
