    Some young people also go through a phase of thinking grit is more "edgy" and "admirable" than convention; only to dial back their opinions and interests as they get older. Maybe Gabby thought things like this made Brian look deep.

    I certainly would have wanted a visual sighting to confirm he actually was back at the home.

    The apple doesn't fall far from the tree and all that. They must be so proud of how well he paid attention to their teachings.

    Omg, when he hitch hiked a ride with the man and woman from Colter Bay mentioned Jackson he freaked out.

    I don't understand why law enforcement is chasing him into the wilderness area. If he's not a suspect then who cares if he goes camping?. Shouldn't their resources be used on the case where someone is actually missing and not on a a self-professed outdoorsman out on a little walkabout? The mosquitoes, heat, and humidity will drive him out eventually. If he chooses to end his life in there then who really cares? There are definitely better uses for LE resources right now. Just my own personal opinions and musings...

    I think between the hitchhiker story and the elk story, LE is focusing on the Spread Creek area.

    I agree. I'm glad to see someone looking into this with a fresh perspective.

    My mapping of the public facing information, some of which has not been confirmed by LE but by witnesses who seem credible leads me to think they should be looking by Yellowstone for Gabby and Spread Creek for witnesses who will verify that he was alone by that time and possibly without a vehicle. The vehicle may have switched hands by this time and been on its way back to Florida, accessory after the fact unknown.

    She’s reading a book about the Zodiac killer in one of the photos, odd book choice for a 22 year old women?

    This is the sticker.
    Today is a Great Day Sticker

    You can buy the stickers wholesale, and nothing about that sticker says Venice, FL. It is a saying with some palm trees.

    I'm guessing Brian's parents care very much if he kills himself; and if invoked, LE can't just ignore them, throw up their hands, and say "Have at it, kid," AFAIK.

    I think the TicToK may have dropped him off near to the camping area...

    the 25th or 26th Victor store guy has me questioning if they could not find camping spots except at the dispersed area since the 25th was a crowded free day per the person who saw van at penny lake.

    I don't foresee hanging out on Spotify as being unusual for someone of Brian's makeup.

    Is it something you or I or most of the people here could concentrate on? No, oh my gosh. But this parallels most other aspects of this case. Could we act how Brian has by not divulging the whereabouts of our missing fiance? Could we hold up under the strain of it all? No, but Brian is out there somewhere, possibly still adding songs. [moo, heifer]

    the only way Tim Miller would send his crew out would if they had a solid area to search in and then he has to be contacted by LE 0r a family member but im sure if they ever have a certain area of interest they would be glad to help.

    Re: campsite numbers…

    On this website, There are campsite numbers assigned to “Spread Creek Dispersed Campsite” and separate sequential numbers assigned to “Toppings Lake Dispersed Campsite”.

    RV Camping in Moran Wyoming: 191 Campgrounds in the Moran area - Campendium

    I’ve found reviews for Spread creek campsites numbered up to 13. Not 15 as indicated on the FBI map. Toppings Lake campsites number up to 27. Not the 24 on the FBI map.

    ETA: please see my post #360 where yes, they are campsite numbers.
