AAA road service

34 miles into our drive to LA and we hit a big whomping chunk of metal in the road — and there goes a tire. Could have been worse — we were right at the Federal Way exit; later in the drive in southern Oregon or central California we might have had a real long wait.

But AAA service was great — great call center, quick arrival, found an open tire center for us, took us right there. Well worth the annual membership fee.
