Anachronistic Auto Association?

I was a member of AAA for about 10 years, starting when I got my drivers liscence on my 16th birthday. I used AAA for their trip tiks, travelers checks, maps, discounts, and for the security of knowing that if I had a problem on the road help wouldn't be too far away.

This was before the world of internet routing, mobile phones, and debit / ATM access everywhere. I also take much fewer solo road trips, now that I'm out of the military and either <30 or > 2000 miles from anyone I might visit.

I just received a promotion to rejoin. I'm thinking about rejoining. And thinking more about not rejoining.

Is it still my parents' auto association? Is AAA a thing of the past?
