My wife and I were driving to Assateague Island to spend the day on the beach with our Jeep. It was a little after 7AM and we were driving topless and door less. I was being very mindful of my speed and set my cruise for 5 mph above the limit. (I know it's still over the limit, but we were still the slowest ones on the road).
We were driving down a particularly notorious section of Rt. 50, just before 611 where the road is divided by trees. There was one other car, about 6 lengths ahead of me in the right lane. I noticed a State Trooper coming up in the left lane. I bumped my cruise down a few mph.
He pulled up along side us and my wife asked if he was pacing us. It appeared he was so I bumped it down to 55 on the nose. He rode in the left lane, between me and the car if front of me for 3 or 4 miles.
All of a sudden he slowed down and moved in behind me and turned his lights on. i pulled over and as I was getting my license and registration I was thinking that the worst he could do would be to give me a ticket for 5 mph over the limit.
Strangely he walked up on my wife's side. Right away he said, "Don't worry, you didn't do anything wrong. I have a ''98 Wrangler and I really like your cargo net."
We ended up talking for about 5 minutes. Before he left I handed him one of the Safari Straps business card I keep in my glove compartment and we shook hands. Maral and Hatch should be expecting an order from a MD State Trooper for a set of TJ nets.
