    Constructing an alibi is why I believe he told them specifically that he had been hiking/camping for four days and she stayed back with the van. It put him in one place for four days during which anything could have happened to her while he was gone. He wanted to get that on the record.

    They were just in the press for completely failing the 100’s of girls Molested by the US Olympic Gymnastics DR. Having high faith/expectations in the FBI isn’t recommended. MOO of course.

    They are Istagrammers. They go where the best shots are. The more risky/secluded the better for views.

    Oh! They HAD a jackery, just like mine! I saw it in their video. That might be enough with their solar panels.

    Anybody know how much sun the area got between the 25th and the 29th?

    (I have a Prius wagon - built-in bed, freezer, Artic cooler, micro-oven, pull-out desk that converts to a dog bed at night, and room for the more than 100 books I took on my last road trip - pre-pandemic. Next time, it will just be Kindle.)

    Here's how I understand it: Let's say you hit "reply" to a post and type in the box below all the posts. Then you hit "post reply." Your post is posted, though it may take a while, so you may think the post wasn't posted and hit "post reply" again.

    But let's say you hit "post reply" only once. In addition to being posted, your last post lives on in the reply box. (Sometime I've hit reply twice because I've seen the post in its draft form in the reply box. But again, let's say you hit post reply only once.)

    Now you're ready to reply to a second post. You hit "reply" and compose your response. But you forget to delete your previous post that is still in the reply box. When you post your reply to the second post, voilà! your reply to the first post will be posted along with it. o_O

    OR if this was his attempt at an alibi cover story, maybe he bought a tarp for another purpose, and having told people he was using it to camp was part of that alibi.

    Actually, I think they are the sort for wide-open beaches - and the fronts of restaurants.

    If you are basing that on the Moab DV stop, I think you misunderstood. I don't think she had a problem keeping hers charged, but I don't think he cared if his was charged at all.

    Well we know one thing for certain: the North Port police cannot verify that he was. And, that is on them.

    Longtime member here, but I’ve been away a long time, this case has hit close to home, though, so I’m trying to keep up on the threads.

    I lived in Jackson until last year, another family forced out by the housing crisis the valley is gripped in. I want to provide a little context. Because of the housing crisis, many local workers actually live in their cars or vans, and these dispersed camping sites fill up with them as well as tourists. That’s good news, I think - someone local may have been camping in the area they’re focusing their search and have good info. Additionally, I’ve seen mentions of the sighting in Victor, ID, in that it seems an outlier. Victor is just over Teton Pass, a 40 minute drive from Jackson. It’s within the commuter area, and many people drive the pass every day to and from work (see: housing crisis). It’s a popular tourist day drive, and if they were considering going to Yellowstone, heading up through Ashton/Island Park/West Yellowstone from Victor would be a logical choice.

    There are not as many dispersed camping sites available in Yellowstone, which may be why they didn’t go there, IMO. It can be impossible to find a place to camp in Yellowstone if you haven’t planned months in advance.

    End of August, Grand Teton is just packed with tourists. Everything I’ve seen, even the dubious “hiking along the Snake River” is front country, they’re weren’t in the depths of the wilderness with that van. Every turn out, every point of interest, every road, every camp is packed with people in August. That doesn’t mean something bad couldn’t have happened to GP there, but it does mean I doubt BL was carrying GP bodily anywhere long distance.

    Lastly, my husband and two kids and I rented a camper can for a two week road trip this summer and although we’ve been together 20 years and we’re both mild mannered well off adults, the stress of #VanLife was a lot! Finding a space that felt safe, going days without showers, the cramped spaces, the constant balance of labor, the feeling of never being able to escape the van was very real. Now, we had two kids driving us bananas too, but I can see how it could stress a young relationship and not be the idyllic life they thought they would be living.
