Thanks for the update, John. I'm guessing it was part of the castle doctrine that I'm not up to speed on. Travelling was never properly defined in the Texas Penal Code in my day but was generally held to mean "travelling from one county, through another, to a third county with the intention of staying overnight," or so we were taught. Another little-known defense was carrying large sums of money, saw one ill-advised arrest tossed for that reason.
I still think the castle doctrine or travelling exception is a poor substitute for the training offered in any well-taught CHL class.
