Rick,
Sorry to hear, but happy all turned out well.

CorLynn,
I liked 199. I called it interesting traveling South to North with DW sitting there looking straight down. She used the double adjective: "frightening scary." I told her to just snap pictures. hee hee!

We were also traveling south to north and i was on the BEAUTIFUL side as the passenger! I was very scared. I think what bothered me the most was how skinny the lane was. And it seemed that the tiny gaurd rail was ON the white line. There was no room for error.

Well thats how i remember it....even though i am trying to forget it.

I wish my Progressive story was more positive. After 15 years with Progressive-No accidents, NO claims, NO tickets I let my policy laspe at midnight last night. My policy PRICE increased by $1100.00. From $1600.00 to $2700.00. I had total replacement coverage since day one and now that my coach is 7 years old I can not get that coverage from another company. I attempted to work with Progressive but they would not budge. I then got a quote by eliminating the total loss clause and the policy would be $2400.00.
So I got quotes from Allstate $1900.00, Foremost $1350.00 And Nationwise $1400.00. I went with Nationwide as their policy had everyting the Progressive policy had for $2400.00 plus glass coverage and higher vacation liability and a few other benefits. My driving record has not changed, my address has not changed, SO GO Figure...I can't!

Sorry to hear about the damage to your coach Rick, but I am glad that Progressive came through for you.

I used to cross the Bourne and Sagamore Bridges on a daily basis with a tractor-trailer and can attest to the fact that there is literally no room for error. My advise to anyone not familiar with these bridges is if you have a large vehicle and are not familiar with the bridges straddle both lanes. The speed limit on both bridges is 40 mph (although you'd never know it). Yes, you may hold up some traffic but I'd much rather p*ss off a few people than damage my coach or nudge a 4 wheeler into oncoming traffic.

The Bourne and Sagamore Bridges look just the same as when they were built. It's just the vehicles that are newer. The picture below is of the south end of the Bourne Bridge taken in 1935 compliments of WGBH-TV Boston.

I have never been on or seen this bridge, but it reminds me of the Astoria bridge in between Washington and Oregon.

Ronnie,

I think they gave Flo a raise in pay, making all those television commercials more expensive to produce and air, which made it necessary to raise your renewal rate to cover the costs. They did the same to me a couple of years ago. I now have State Farm.

We had a pretty good claim experience with Progressive this past summer. Ours was with our boat, an RV of sorts I suppose. Lower drive unit struck a submerged rock at about 25-30 mph and destroyed the lower drive. We were able to limp back to the dock. I thought it might end up being a nightmare and difficult claim because the policy was only a month old when the accident occurred. The claims adjuster was very friendly and helpful and only wanted some sort of proof that the accident occurred the day it had. I provided a copy of the receipt from the launch fee paid that day and the claim process went smooth as anyone would want after that.

I had gotten the policy through USAA, being retired Military.
