    Went to Cunningham Falls State Park in Thurmont Maryland on Columbus Day with my kids. We took the "long way" through the woods up to the falls and it was a beautiful day for a hike.

    I of course left my firearm unloaded and locked up in the truck, out of reach so as not to be in violation of any laws since Maryland does not recognize my CHP from Virginia.

    While up at the falls saw 2 young men engaged in a different kind of Open Carry.

    The picture below about says it all.

    Looks like a surveyor to me (been known to carry one of those myself).

    That machete looks like it might almost be so big as to be unwieldy in a fight. I would personally for for a Ka-Bar. Perhaps part of his job involves going through some thick brush.

    From what I understand the federal peaceable journey law only applies if it is legal for you to posses the firearm at your destination. You can't have even an unloaded firearm in your car in Md unless you are going to and from the range, etc.

    MARYLAND--The unlicensed transportation of handguns in vehicles is prohibited, except for a variety of lawful purposes, including target shooting. A handgun must be transported unloaded and in an enclosed case or holster with a strap.
