    I feel the same. My sister had an arrangement with her daughters that if anything went wrong on a date or when out they were to call her and “ask if uncle Bill was there”. That meant they needed help.

    It was BL who actually made the first move sort of implying at the start . . . you know how women get (paraphrase) sort of comment.

    I looked into this. The time frame is 35 hrs in usual traffic.

    If he was jacked up with adrenaline (given the situation) he could have been pushing the speed limit and barely made stops. It could possibly shorten the trip. It's so hard to say.

    If he took stops for short sleep, food, restroom, that has to be figured in.

    If he was able to average 14 hrs a day at an average of 70 mph, and used 10 hrs for the stops, he could conceivably make the trip in about 2.5 days. Which means he could have left in the wee hours of 8/30.

    If the Instagram datestamps are accurate, then his last post was 8/13. Gabby facetimed with her mother on 8/24 or 8/25 (I've seen both dates cited by MSM). And prior to that, she seems to be confirmed as checking out of a hotel on 8/24, and there were other reported communications with her parents by phone or facetime between 8/13 and 8/24.

    COPIED FROM SAFE HAVEN WEBSITE.....

    hotel probably was not an option for GP, it would have been safehaven facility.

    "We currently can house 8 women and children with an additional crib.

    At this time, we cannot house men at our emergency shelter, but can provide hotel rooms in emergency situations."

    Correct info matters. LE tried to get her a free hotel room. They couldn't. She was responded to very sympathetically when she expressed her discomfort about having to drive very far in the van to camp.

    It's been stated previously, the female officer is a park ranger and there is no report that has been released by them. The Christoper statement has been released. You'll probably find a link on the timeline. AFAIK, no store footage. There is also a 911 call that is released.

    Is this consistent with what the reporters hanging around his house said ?

    Would he want to get caught speeding though? I don't know, he doesn't seem the brightest bulb in the box in fairness but if I was in his shoes I certainly wouldn't want to be pulled over by the Cops while making that journey.

    Abuse isn't just physical. And it does perpetuate. On and on til someone stops the cycle. Children grow up watching/hearing these tactics and think its normal even if it was painful to observe. Some go on to model the same behavior.
    Wasn't considered wrong, oh it was, just nothing was done about it. Most times tied down with children, no place to go. Put up or shut up basically.

    It must have been answered already, I’m sure, but the 911 call led to the police tailing the van and Brian speeding. It’s all part of one sequence of events/incident.

    IMO if you're down in the sagebrush and trying to find your way, it might be easy to get lost. You'd see sagebrush and more sagebrush, with occasional clumps of trees. It might not be possible to stay oriented without a topo map and compass. I'm thinking BL was not up to this kind of cross country travel. That might be why he elected to hitch part way.
