Welcome Tim! To the site and to open carrying in general. I'm down in Mobile... so we likely won't be out carrying together anytime soon. But as far as a day, if you go out carrying on any given Saturday you'll probably be carrying at the same time as me! (As well as any other weekday I happen to be running errands.)
As long as you educate yourself (and there is a wealth of information and knowledge on this site) and carry responsibly, there's nothing to worry about in jumping out there! I hope it all goes well and enjoy your freedoms!
