Tarps are LOUD . If you've ever folded one up or used one for anything they are really crackling and scratchy sounding and there 's no way to do it quietly.
Also, if you can look just a bit west of here ( i mapped , it's 3 miles ) to Boat Club Rd. This road winds up the side of Eagle Mountain Lake. There are lots of homes and marinas on parts of it and on other parts of it, its' very isolated, especially the further north you go. If you can travel along Boat Club, just look at how many places there are near water and just open fields that would be a good hiding place. Saginaw is a busy town but just a few miles up north of there , it's fairly deserted with lots of farm land and very few homes. I will not say my GUT says he was heading that way but I have thought that it's possible. Also if you lived somewhere along that path and had a red truck in your driveway , no one would drive by and SEE it. There's plenty of trees and the homes are more scattered out and very private.
Does anyone remember seeing/hearing on day one that the green splatter was the size of a ' bowling ball ' or did I imagine that ? tia
