Walking or hitch-hiking???
You are coming home from an all day late summer fishing trip. The lake is 25 miles from any civilization and has little traffic on the road. You left at 4:00 AM and its now approaching 8:00 PM, so you are tired and your phone batteries are low. After traveling 8 miles towards home your pick-up dies. You attempt to make several calls- but only get busy signals and by the third call your phone is now dead.
It is almost dusk, and you decide to start walking towards home. You check your CCW weapon, its loaded, on your side, and covered. You grab your Mag-lite, a light jacket, bottle of water, lock-up your pick-up and head down the road.
After covering 3 miles you hear a car coming up from behind you. The car sees you in their head-lights, and pulls up to you. The car is a 2-door with 3 shady looking males in it. 2 in the front seat, and one in the backseat on the passengers side. Your right side is your strong side and you carry on the right side.
They roll the window down and ask if you would like a lift? It is starting to cool off, and you have a 14 mile walk ahead of you-- What is your next move?
Does carrying give you the confidence and courage to "get in" or would this be breaking the rule of "avoidance" if something were to happen.?
