I was practicing my hobby, geocaching. I was searching for a geocache hidden near a turnpike ramp near the site of an historic graveyard in North Lima. Since this was a stop on my way to church, where I have not asked permission to carry, my pistol was locked in a case, locked in my car. I was about 20 yards from the car when I saw the patrolman pull up behind my vehicle.
When asked what was I doing, I told him and informed him of my CCW and where my gun was. His first response was, "Oh, I don't care about that." He then joined me in my search, since he has geocached in the past.
I DID make the mistake of not informing immediately.
The experience was just the way it was supposed to be, so why were my knees shaking?
