    I spent a day or two trying to find it with no luck. I don't think the site is relevant, I think Barry was putting on a show for AM and he overplayed his hand. There was mention of Whitepine and there is a small town with a mine to the W of Maysville on the other side of a mountain.

    TD says that on the day before he got the video of BM, he saw BM in the same area, coming up out of the creek, soaking wet and bright red from the cold water. He appeared to have been looking for something in the water.

    Somewhere in the back of my mind, I'm recalling an interview with CCFC Beltran where he talked about the county having two volunteer academies and that BM was a volunteer for Chaffee County's wildland/grassland fires. I think this was also what BM had on his FB but probably before he was POI and we could openly discuss BM. Nonetheless, I think the physical agility test (PAT) would be the same.

    VFF training info last updated Winter 2018.

    Aftwr lokong, the minimum FF CPAT standards require being weighed down with 75 lbs.
    So I think a 100 lb pack doable.

    100 lb backpacks for sale at REI etc.
    Roman Legionaires carried 66-100 lbs 25 miles a day.

    That is very interesting....given that TD is on the witness list.

    He had to get rid of all of the evidence including what was on himself, his clothing and boots.

    Were those coolers the ones with handle and two wheels?

    We don't know. We heard from Andy that CBI was asking about missing coolers, but I don't think this came up during the preliminary, nor was it mentioned in the AA.

    If there is in fact one missing, I believe it is large enough to hold an intact human body.

    I've wondered if maybe we're over-looking the obvious and the girls took the coolers on their trip? Did anybody look in MM1's truck when they got to Maysville?

    4:23 am – Suzanne’s phone makes its last ping off of the Poncha Springs tower as located near Puma Path.

    I think Barry may have crushed her phone before disposing of it. iPhones these days survive being underwater, with limitations.

    7:10 pm Deputy Brown makes second attempt to contact Barry, he answers and claims he last saw Suzanne at 5 am. Repeats assertion that Suzanne road her bike between 8 and 9 am.

    How did Barry know Suzane went for a bike ride when he didn't speak to her all day? He's such a liar. He tricked the Ritter's into believing she was on her bike but how would he know what time she left the house? Between 8 and 9 am. Liar!

    5:58 pm Martin Ritter calls 911 and repeats Barry’s assertion that Suzanne was taking a morning ride.
    At 6:03 pm, Barry exited his hotel room, wearing a black shirt with his khaki backpack on his back.
    6:05 pm – Deputy Brown attempts to call Barry, it is unanswered. Also at 6:05 pm, Barry made an outgoing call to Martin Ritter.

    I expect Mr. Ritter to be an important witness in proving Barry's evil manipulation.

    Find Suzanne Morphew – #JusticeForSuzanne

    I have no doubt ole Barry could physically carry Suzanne for a good long distance but not as far as Monarch Pass. He planned this until he felt he had the perfect disposal spot where nobody could find her. After using the tranquilizer dart, his adrenaline was likely raging from excitement and fear. He was on a mission. Nothing would stop him.

    2:47 pm BM’s phone goes to airplane mode
    2:44-4:44 pm Truck doesn’t move
    4:44 pm BM truck door closes
    4:44-9:25 pm AA pge 6 truck stays in same loc

    He may have utilized the ATV. Day or night, for I feel he did it straight away when he placed his phone in airplane mode at 2:47 pm. He had two hours. ATVs are a bit noisy though but there's a solution for that other than having new fat tires:

    I think a guy who's such a big outdoors man like BM, is going to have more than one cooler. And according to what Andy heard, LE found no coolers at all. I think it would be highly unlikely that every cooler they owned went on that camping trip.

    But as @MassGuy pointed out, there was no mention of coolers in the AA or preliminary, but maybe LE just isn't opening that door because they don't have an explanation of why there were no coolers and no way to prove it.

    MOO

    Agreed - he couldn't resist adding exposition to make police look for the bike.

    One of his foundational mistakes in all this is Suzanne's phone. He needs her to ride early, otherwise she has no phone activity for yet another day. Probably he needed to stage activity on it on Saturday, then leave it on the charger in the house as if she forgot to take it with her.

    Why were they even searching in this area, so far from Puma Path, to begin with? I'd love to know who's idea this was. And why.

    I believe Suzanne especially liked Crested Butte.

    Most likely they found out the daughters had coolers on their camping trip so it became a non-issue and never came up again. Or LE was on a fishing expedition when they talked to AM.

    Not one suspicious variable regarding Suzanne and her bike riding habits, from Barry, but two: 1. Riding at a different time than her pattern.....2. Riding in a different location than her pattern. The odds of it being believable if only 1 variable existed are much different than having 2, imo. These odds are worse than the partial dna being a positive match. Again....jmo.

    Yes and they were in the vicinity both when they went college shopping with their older daughter and after she started college I'm sure. CB is just up 135 from Gunnison as is Taylor Reservoir. There is also nice drive also along Kebler Pass and Ohio Pass in certain seasons. I'm sure both BM and SM loved the area....hard not to frankly. And from what we're hearing LE took every tidbit of info and looked into it so if someone mentioned CB or claimed the image was from CB, I'm sure they went and poked around. I'm personally thinking it wasn't CB...and White Pine area was a better guess and closer than Gunnison or CB. Here's an interesting history of White Pine: Colorado Central Magazine - The monthly magazine for lookin' sharp - The Rise and Fall of White Pine, Colorado

    I wonder if the pings could indicate time of travel, and what I mean is could we tell how quickly Barry's phone was moving. Then we would have a better idea of if he was on foot, on ATV, or in a vehicle when he moved the bike.
