    Kancamagus Highway Campgrounds
    Only 2 campgrounds are open year-round, the Jigger Johnson and The Blackberry .

    http://www.kancamagushighway.com/campgrounds/index.htm


    Both required registration into the campground, which would mean there could be a record of that; most probably it was checked out already? Also, i dont think Maura had the camping equipment required to get a spot(tent, vehicle, etc.). If anything i would think she would try to get a cabin to sleep in, as they, apparently, are open all year round.

    But you have to bring your own bedding, according to the website.

    http://www.kancamagushighway.com/cabins/index.htm

    Again, there would be a record of that if she had. Unless of course, Maura just headed off into
    some kind of closed or restricted area, as to avoid detection.

    Still, she would have had quite a run to get there, again, without being detected? It seems hardly possible.

    I wasn't speculating that she ever got there (seems highly unlikely), but it might have been in the back of her mind.

    seems like a lot of hellabalou over nothing! Criticism, just to be critical?
    Like 8 posts, when we could just ASK first, politely, rather then accuse someone of sloppy detective work.

    Was this campground open during the 2004 season year round?

    See how easy that was, lol.

    While the jigger johnson campground is a great possible target location for where Maura may have been headed, a much closer destination along that same route she took would be the Woodstock area, an area that both of Maura's parents have each have referenced as a possible place their daughter would've been headed for.

    About JR's book.... would be more interesting to me if instead of simply writing about MM's disappearance, the book is like his blog - in other words writing about writing a book about MM's disappearance, along with the bits and pieces of info you are finding out...

    Yes, I have heard this explanation before, citing the same source(Fred Murray).

    Perhaps he really didnt know it could stall the car...sounds like an old-timer's way of rigging it up, if you ask me...

    Make of this what you will, but here is a small excerpt from an article done in 2006 by the Concord Monitor that I believe to be credible. I had never heard this piece of info before:


    "The last time Carpenter saw her sister was Christmas 2004. She spoke with her on the phone the night before she disappeared. Murray told Carpenter she had gotten in a fight with her boyfriend but she did not mention anything about going away".

    Also after hearing one of the private investigators going over case notes in a recent interview, He made the distinction that they know Maura was headed east (On foot) after the accident because of the search dogs tracing.

    While that is not neccessarily news, that has been reported several times, the investigator also noted that because of where the accident took place and the time of the year it was, that the search dogs were only going to be able to track anyone's scent for approximately 100 yards because of gusty winds etc.. So the fact the dogs lost Maura's scent 100-yards down the road doesn't really prove much (Like that she hopped into a vehicle).

    Do you have a link?
    I recall from yet another article(cant recall which, but will search later after work) that her sister said she was complaining to Maura about her own fiance. So perhaps there is a mis-report somewhere...or perhaps BOTH conversations took place, one leading to the other...seems like a natural progression....

    Because I am no expert and have no experience with airbags, I will defer to those who are more familiar.

    By all reports, the airbags deployed. Would this not have kept Maura from hitting and cracking the windshield? Just wondering if the windshield damage may have happened at an earlier time.

    Also, how long before the airbags deflate?

    BBM

    They deflate rather rapidly - IIRC in seconds from I've seen mentioned on the web - (Google search airbag deflation time saturn)...
    Much was made of the deflation time on another board where it was questioned how the SBD could have seen MM behind an inflated airbag since they deflate so quickly....
