Those places specified in GA law as off limits are specified as excluded from being off limits when you are in the parking lot with a purpose to be at the place that would otherwise be off limits. It's a mouthful, so I tried to summarize it. Summarys of the laws are not the best place to get your legal advice (let alone internet forums). I'm sorry if I was unclear for you - I expected you to read the law and make your own interpretation - my summary was just for your convenience.

If I have to leave my gun while riding my motorcycle and some place like the hospital is posted,I will field strip my gun and leave the frame cable locked to a D ring in my saddle bags while I take the barrel and slide with me,if somebody does target my bags they will need a tool to get the frame spending more time than necessary,and a barrel and slide is not a gun so as long as I park in a lot next to the Post Office not on Fed Property I can do the same thing,I live 20 miles from Mexico I DON'T GO TO MEXICO,My wife is Canadian,In the past I left my gun in a gunshop for cleaning the last time I traveled to Canada.

In most cases, I echo the sentiment that if I can't carry there, I don't go there. But there are exceptions, and solutions. For instance, I just returned from a week-long trip to from Iowa to Colorado with my family, and for nearly the entire trip I carried my Sig P220 Carry SAO in a Coronado Leather Stealth Pak or cross-draw in a Blackhawk soft IWB holster covered by a photo vest. However, three days of our trip were spent at a national drag racing event that banned firearms. For those occasions I field stripped the gun down to barrel, slide, magazine and frame, then wrapped each in a colored plastic bag (like from a grocery store), and stuck it in one of our dirty laundry (garbage) bags. Who's gonna search or steal a bunch of dirty laundry from the back end of a minivan? Extreme? I don't think so — and it's certainly no more extreme than carrying a loaded handgun.
I should probably add that at no time during our trip through Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado and back again, did I not see a single sign barring firearms from any premises (I knew from reading CO code that handguns are barred from events that charge an admission and from racetracks). I was also not hassled, and even received only knowing-yet-friendly winks from two burly employees at a Cabela's who were supposed to "check-in and secure" all firearms entering the store.
