I'm looking for help planning my trip to River Falls. I've driven the directions used from yahoo, Map Quest, and Rand McNally. However, I was wondering if anyone has AAA, and would get me directions? I'm not a member, but you need a 16 digit password to print off directions located on the back of your card. Could anyone PM that number? Or look for directions from 2320 Washington Street, Davenport, IA 52804 to 1616 Crestview Drive, Hudson Wisconsin 54016.

Thanks for the help. You guys always come through.

Sorry, can't help with that.

But, I use www.expedia.com every week, and their maps and directions have never let me down.

The reason I want AAA is because the first time I went up there, they mapped it out for me. It was the quickest, easiest drive I've had there. For some reason, the directions got misplaced, and I've been driving different one's every summer from there on out.

Thanks for the help though...

Expedia gives you turn-by-turn instructions.

We let our tripple A membership expire since my daughters are not here to require the tow service anymore. I think Donger's advice is very good, Map Quest will goof you up sometimes.

It's not the directions I am worried about really...There is actually a stretch where you go through two towns that is only suppose to take 45 minutes. It's easily a 2 hour venture through those two towns. Every site I've been on, including expedia, takes me right through those two towns. AAA mapped me around it years ago.

From the thread title alone I was going to suggest using the phone rather than an unrelated internet site.... but whatever works for you.

It might take me a while, but I can put up aerial maps of the route.

Here's your house...
