AAA is great

Hoo boy was I tired and headachey! Yesterday I spent about two and a half hours at the AAA office getting advice for the upcoming trip. This guy, Randy, was really helpful. Randy has parents who RVed so he had a bit of insight from the stints in his youth. Randy also has been to some of the areas which we plan to visit.

We worked over the proposed itinerary which I brought along. Randy made some really good suggestions which will change our route a bit. He suggested a more scenic route in the Las Vegas area, and recommended our stop in Atlanta at the beginning of the trip rather than at the end. This allows us to skip the uncertain trek across Texas. He suggested some areas of which I was unaware, while adding ideas to stops we were already planning. I got my money's worth for this visit! Then Randy loaded me up with guides and maps.

We will be crossing Birmingham. Should we stop at EWTN?


  1. I wouldn't necessarily stop at EWTN itself, but a 40-mile sidetrip to the Sister's Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament is well worth it. Especially if you can camp somewhere near Hanceville so you can attend their 7 am ad orientem sung Latin Novus Ordo Mass.

  2. Great idea! A 40-mile detour might be manageable. I'd love to attend that Mass!
