Ha! I've gotta show this to A. He told me there's no need for it - I beg to differ. Glad it came in handy in a pinch!
We got AAA before we even got the internet (we mooched off neighbors for more than a year)!We did without for a while. Until we realized that anytime our car was broken (it's 13 years old), it would cost more than a year's membership to have it towed anywhere since permanent four wheel drive requires the expensive kind of tow truck.
