    Day 1: So far so good. Now stopped for the night in Winchester VA. Tomorrow the Ruger gets unloaded and locked in a case in the trunk where it will stay for the remainder of the trip until I'm out of enemy territory. Thanks everyone for the help and advice.

    In MD, ammo in a mag is considered a LOADED weapon. Doesn't matter the mag is not in the gun. Keep it locked in the trunk with a trigger lock in a locked box.

    In my opinion just before you get to the Maryland border go to a gun store on put it in a safe! New Jersey, New York and Maryland are so bad they regularly do not considering it "transported" unless you are no going to stop in the state. Sightseeing doesn't count. When I would drive from CT to CA I would bypass New Jersey altogether and lock my gun in the trunk and ammo in the glove box in places like Illinois. I had a complete list of reciprocity for each state I was going through. Luckily New York honored Connecticut's license.
    Also check on your disclosure requirements for each state.

    I worked with guys who would make the "Lennie Briscoe" character seem genteel.

    And they would always say "The light at the end of the tunnel is New Jersey" (NYC joke)

    In these states, I would NEVER lock my ammo in the glove box. If they see it incidentally (like when you reach for the registration/insurance card) you could be in big trouble. Store it in separate locked boxes on separate sides of the trunk.

    So, you might ask why would they require this. The rationale goes something like: in order to protect yourself, you purposely go to the trunk, open it, unlock the gun, unlock the ammo, insert the ammo and then shoot, this is now premeditated murder and not self defense because you purposely loaded and discharged your weapon. Welcome to the idiocy of liberals.
