Interaction with US law enforcement

On Saturday, I landed short. It was a beautiful day, but I "felt the hand of god" flying north out of Quest. For non-hangies: it means you only find sink and get pushed towards the ground pretty fast...
Anyway, I had to get back to Quest since we all started flying without retrieve drivers. And since I landed first, I could do that if I got back to Quest somehow. I packed the glider and started hitch-hiking. The 4th car driving by was a police car. "Hey, what are you doing here?". I explained the hang gliding situation and the officer promptly emptied his passenger seat and gave me a ride back all the way to Quest. Thanks a lot!
