Looking back on these last few posts of mine, a scenario emerges. Kristi is stuck on a lightly traveled and populated back road not too distant from her home. As she was known to restlessly roam these roads, she was almost certainly familiar with Little Lake Road. She is probably disoriented from stress. Her damp clothing shows she tried to unstick her car. What should she do now? She decides to walk out. Her probable route was from the vicinity of the Mendocino Woodlands Camp Association intersection (Road 408/Little Lake Road & Thompsons Gulch Trail) out to Route 20: https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Men...4374670d7db!2m2!1d-123.684694!2d39.375381!3e2 It must have been a spooky stumbling stroll. Even during the day, the heavy tree canopy along that road renders it dusky. At night it must have been pitch black. Long portions of the road are sunken into the ground with wear, making it a single lane trench through the woods. At any rate, a day later she is identified hitchhiking on Route 20 on 11 August. What I find interesting is that more than one person saw her hitching on Route 20. That's pretty definitive. This scenario does not rule out alternatives. However, the vicinity around the MWCA intersection was pretty well searched, and it is not that rough by Mendocino County standards. Moreover, I believe an opportunistic thief injured their hands ripping the stereo out of Kristi's Toyota because it is difficult to summon a scenario where Kristi was injured while defending her property. https://www.google.com/maps/place/M...d7bdbf474c2b4!8m2!3d39.3310719!4d-123.7349409 Mind you, I am not saying the searchers couldn't have missed her remains in the heavy cover. However, there were those confirmed sightings along Route 20, in Utah and near Hanford CA. I also believe in the accuracy of the Mississippi sighting because three people are identifying Kristi.
