    If my son was on a long trip and wanted to fly back to move stuff out of storage, I would suggest that we pay a few young people and even get the brother-in-law to help move the stuff back. I would not like him to leave his girlfriend alone. The flight costs more than paying a few moving guys. Perhaps the parents know that BL is going to do, what BL is going to do.

    he could have paid or bribed someone to drive it back. Leave it in his parents driveway with the keys in it.

    he could have been picked up or taken a ride or hitchhiked to anywhere in the USA from there.

    I believe that the language was "possibly credible -" but that's about as strong of language as you will get from them.

    I have no doubt she is genuine, and not an attention seeker.

    It's almost a surety that Publix has a pharmacy, no?

    She was saving for this adventure, the van was a big expense, so I do believe it's likely she worked more than one job. She may have changed food related jobs (juice bar, Taco Bell) due to the pandemic restrictions. Publix has pharmacies. Maybe she wasn't a certified tech, but maybe cashier? Just guessing. No idea why she stated to LE that she was a nutritionist.

    Were the hunters just getting their spots ready? Here we have hunters head out off and on days before opening season to do whatever it us they need to do. They aren't actually hunting yet but they are there.

    I’d bet he had a tarp because tent campers place their air beds on them to prevent punctures and they are easy to shake off instead of cleaning the tent floor.

    I'm not one of those people; just someone with an active imagination.

    Why would his parents report him missing now? The circus outside their house finally got to them. They wrongfully thought if they found out he wasn't at the house they would leave.

    Where did Brian go? To Alaska in the footsteps of Chris McCandless (this mostly just a joke, but who knows, he could be a fan of Alexander Supertramp).

    Getting the van to the house from Wyoming. well, my imagination fails me except for crazy stuff that just wouldn't happen.

    It's only 8 Statute miles (SM) from the camp to the dropoff at the dam.
    A little over 12 of road miles.
    26 minutes according to google map estimations.

    Lol! My daughter and son in law own 4 rental properties, and their own home which is a rambling, 110 year old Victorian is the most valuable but least renovated of all the houses.

    They were elk spotting. Hunters usually go out spotting first the few days before the season starts so they know where to spend their time hunting.

    Or he had went on foot looking for a tarp and picked it up from somewhere to take back with him

    Did you see that a girlfriend in Yellowstone that Gabby "stood up" thinks it very odd that Gabby would have sent a text on the 30th to her mother but not to her to firm up their meetup? IMHO, the 30th post is not her.

    There are certain situations that don't involve CSA or other crimes against children that automatically cause therapists to be mandated reporters.

    I'm glad to hear this. Many years ago, there was a UC, Berkeley therapist who didn't warn the potential victim that her ex had thoughts of killing her. The therapist was forbidden by superiors from reporting this to either LE or the victim. He killed her and his parents sued. That cracked the issue open - but not all therapists have gotten the word.

    from the Jackson Dam area to the Spread Creek Camping area i thought google said 21 miles...but maybe not it doesnt look like a campground... so he still had to hitch a ride or walk....if the Van was still in the camp area.
