    Waysides

    As I was driving to take a course with Advanced Protection Group this past weekend, I had to make a couple of rest stops on the way (results from caffeine). Anyway, my second stop, there was an attendant walking out as I was walking in. I'm thinking he doesn't notice, doesn't care, or is just following the law. When I came out and was ~10' out the door, he says, "Excuse, I know open carry has been legal in this state for sometime," and I'm just waiting for, "but you can't carry that in there," but he didn't! He continued on asking if I've ever had any issue, to which the only issue I had was with 3 state troopers and 3 county deputies. He said he was also a member of WCI and has his CCL. I told him about this site, so hopefully he shows up.

    Anyway, carry on my friends!

    Very nice!

    I think I've only been in a rest stop once since getting my permission slip and it was uneventful.

    I'm just more surprised he said he was a WCI member.

    That's a good sign when you run across one in a very unlikely place. Means we are getting the word out.

    It was the wayside just before Portage. I think that is in Columbia County, but maybe Dane.
