+AuntieWeasel Posted January 6, 2006 Share Posted January 6, 2006 Sometime later this month, the Weaselmobile will hit 200K miles -- and they warn't gentle miles, neither. In part as a result of attendant nervousness, I carry my whole wallet -- driver's license, check book, credit cards, AAA card, work ID, cash enough for a cab ride home from the far reaches of my caching territory. I have a bad feeling something catastrophic and expensive is going to happen to me early some Sunday morning and, dressed in my usual caching plumage, I'm going to need to summon up all the scratch and artificial credibility I can get. I've had a couple of near misses with that wallet lately, though, and I'm beginning to think I shouldn't be scrambling around the woods with so many valuables (I've got a Charles II Maundy groat in there! Eh, Google it already). However, I don't trust me to pull all the most important bits out of my wallet and assemble a temporary ID package, then put it all back again before I head out for work on Monday. And I don't want to leave it in the car for fear of losing the lot. So, here's my specific question: Is it legal to drive carrying a Xeroxed copy of my driver's license? Or would that vary by state? I'm told you don't technically have to carry your license in the UK, as long as you do have a valid license, which made me think of the question. Law enforcement types: if I told you I was doing it that way because I was a hiker and didn't want to carry my official junk into the woods, would it make any difference? Here's my general question: what do you carry caching for ID and cards and cash and stuff? Quote Link to comment
