    I had thought about posting this picture (found it online too) because i believe that is the shell gas station at the end of the road there. However I'm not 100% that would've been her route.

    I have been to this gas station several times but it's been about 6+ months.

    I should probably drive back out there just to be sure but here's some (probably useless) info that i recall

    I recall the Shell station not being a direct shot off the highway.

    I don't think most people passing through (on the hwy, heading west) looking for gas would stop in McCleary. You can't see it off the hwy & it involves 2 stops & turns. I wouldn't say the exit/entrance 'grabs people.

    I'm not sure about heading east. But i suspect it'd involve at least that ^. (+going over hwy)

    I recall the bus station being pretty much a stones throw from the Shell station.

    I think it is just a local transit station. I believe if the child had gotten on a bus a driver (or some one else on the bus) would've popped up. Not to rule out anyone involved with the bus station though. Some one might want to see if they can pull up the actual drop off schedule.

    I have walked from that Shell station to the bus station (& beyond) during a prior 'event' (
    phelps family
    Westboro_Baptist_Church threatened to show up, didn't happen)

    I thought about attending the vigil last night but after watching videos & reading here i think posters may (careful emphasis) have pointed out some legitimate (fishy) things.

    I have read (i think) most but not all of this thread & touched off/on w/monkeys & insession. Fairly informed but not 'all in'.

    The brother w/the fishing pole thing kind of bothered me. Was he seriously just fishing somewhere? If so where & who (if anyone) was with him? Any additional information on him or his fishin' ?

    When i was last in McCleary to (photo) the prior 'event' (which didn't happen) i was actually harassed by a McCleary LEO. So at the moment, i'm not terribly a fan of them.

    Not a 'journalist but i do sometimes show up to protests/events take photos & post online. Thought about heading out there.
    Again, JVK is a fantastic poster who we really appreciate! Kudos, JVK~

    That alley is a bit creepy & i was drawn to it quickly.

    When brought up on maps +/-online it is either not drawn out well, not drawn through, missing a name, named 10th or W Simpson Alley.

    There's basically no (physical) (10th st) posts except for @ the very end of it (iirc) - Which swings to the right & back onto Simpson.

    It runs between Maple & W Simpson Ave

    ^- As you can see in this map, no name at all.

    Ooops! I pulled my comment on the creepy alley cuz I wasn't sure if I was supposed to comment on this thread, or if it is just for pics!

    I was looking at the map and it seems the alley wasn't a direct route home...Am I looking at that correctly?

    Small Business strip on other side of 3rd





    Pretty sure this blue/trim brick building ^ used to be a restaurant































    From behind the Shell station my laptop found a 'Paradise Pizza' wifi connection, i went into the restaurant & asked a lady if i could use their wifi. (it was secured) She said she wasn't sure & to wait 15min for her husband. I said i'd be back .. but i didn't come back (found wifi elsewhere)

    I didn't really make an intent of taking PD pictures, just kind of one-offs here & there. It's a bit scattered i'll get to this in a bit.

    You are the best, JVK! Thanks! (I still haven't changed my opinion of this bridge yet. There is just something about it.)
