It's a club I have never had any interest in, but my invitation came last week and I was powerless to resist.
I am the guy who snickered at bowed bike trays, caved in car roofs, and duct taped ski boxes.
But I can't do that anymore, 'cause I'm a new member of this group of gear crushers.
Make no mistake, I am embarrassed about it, emabarrassed to the core.
I've been throwing things on my Thule systems for nearly 20 years, and have never even had a close call.
Now I can only snear at repeat offenders and hope I never join that club.
