you look 12? lol
When I shave I def look younger but when I have my beard trimmed i look 26-27( or so im told)
Ive oc'd every time I walk my dog around, with and without beard never been hassled about it.
If a cop came up to you and stopped you he would most likely ask for your ID which you do not need to provide
If he asks you if you are 18 simply answer yes.
In my opinion if the cop is level headed and polite I would have no problem handing over my ID, they are after all, just doing their jobs.
If it was a terry stop I would refuse to hand my ID over.
I would suggest to get a lil more comfortable with OCing by walking with other OCers or doing something that helps distract from it, when I first started I just walked my dog around the park and downtown clarkston, I think the cute puppy helps people think that I am just a person walking my dog instead of a MWAG, I walked with another person on here once and that DEFINITELY helped.
Once you get a lil more comfortable you will feel more at home.
There is a picnic right by you on the 15th of may in warren, I would go to that if you could.
I am also setting one up on the 6th of june in rochester hills and by all means you are more than welcome to attend, the picnics helped me feel less nervous
