If they can get you for speeding and happen to see a bunch of excess ski gear,..........you know
I, for one am glad they are on the look out for the extra gear. If you've ever had anything stolen, you know what I mean.
I'm trying to wrap my hands around how they can tell what is stolen during a routine traffic stop. I usually travel with at least three pair of skis, two sets of poles, etc for just me. Are they gonna make me dig out my boots and make sure they all fit
: I could see if someone has 20 pairs of skis they might get suspicious (I've heard some others have rather large quivers they take along too
. But,cops are far more likely to catch one of the dozens and dozens of people with an open bottle or some other controlled substance than the one person a week that takes a motherload of skis from the rack.
