lol. You can spend about 30 minutes on the internet and learn the laws of the states you will be driving through, as they pertain to transporting a firearm. You don't need a CWP just to transport a firearm in your car, and also to transport it from your car to your hotel room. Some states are more lenient than others, but as far as I know, all states fall under the federal "18 U.S.C. 926A - Interstate transportation of firearms", including Maryland, which means you can:
Q. Can I legally transport firearms interstate? (From the MD State Police)
A. Yes, under Title 18, Section 926A, of the United States Code, a person who is not prohibited
from possessing, transporting, shipping, or receiving a firearm shall be entitled to transport a firearm for any lawful purpose from any place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm to
any place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm if, during such transportation the firearm is unloaded, neither the firearm nor any ammunition being transported is readily accessible or is directly accessible from the passenger compartment. In the case the vehicle does not have a
compartment separate from the driver's compartment the firearm or ammunition shall be contained in a locked compartment other than the glove compartment or console.
Florida is a little lenient. You can keep a loaded gun in your center console, with the lid closed, or glovebox, etc., even without a CWP.
