On my way to the Houston Fishing Show this past weekend, I witnessed a flying mattress coming at me while driving on the highway. I would like to suggest to those who travel with ladders, mattresses, chairs, or anything else strapped to their roof, that they should take a lesson from paddlers. Paddlers know that using a bungee cords or a shoe laces to secure something to a roof rack can only end one way — FAILURE. So save yourself from an embarrassing situation or even worse an accident by following a paddlers lead on how to properly tie down your cargo and always use the proper equipment. – Andrew @ACK Houston
