Their tow truck delivered my truck to a local garage, and I was
back on the road with a new computer module installed.
The second occasion was several miles north of Kayenta, on the
Navajo Nation. Kayenta is just west of noplace, about halfway between Tuba
City, Arizona, and Cortez, Colorado... on the fringe of Monument Valley.
There are few services available in the
area... but there is an AAA tow truck!
Again, their tow truck delivered my truck to
the nearest garage,
and two hours later (after the garage identified and repaired a
broken ground wire) we were back on the road.
AAA travel has assisted my wife several
times... with a dead battery
and a couple of flat tires. We've also used the AAA travel publications.
There's lots of useful information in these publications.
Like the tow trucks and road service, the
travel publications are provided to members at no charge.
It's not really a single organization. It's actually a
federation of affiliated independent organizations that they term
Each club is a not-for-profit organization, incorporated in its
own state and governed by its own board of directors. To be affiliated, each
club must provide certain standard services to its own members, as well
as to members of other AAA clubs.
Each club owns the territory in which it operates, and membership
is based on residence. Exact dues and services vary slightly between clubs.
We find AAA
travel membership to be a good deal.
Search Google using the keyword phrase AAA +
Flagstaff (or another city name) to find AAA rated services.
