    Even before I had my CCW, I (legally) took a firearm with me when camping solo out west, mostly for protection from a chance wildlife encounter that could endanger me.

    Even without a CCW, you can legally travel to other states with firearms. Not all, but a good many.

    German Shepherds are so great, they can play all sorts of roles.

    If he's been eaten by a gator, his body will never be found. Gators eat bones and all. Certainly BL knows that, so I wonder if he GTH outta there before things got so wet. Frustrating to contemplate, isn't it??

    I saw a comment earlier, and can't remember which thread, saying that their theory was BL abandoned the van after the incident and was "hiking" the creek/rivers as a potential alibi (you know, I wasn't even there, yadda yadda) whenever he was allegedly picked up. This made me think, if he really was picked up, was he staying close enough to monitor the area but far enough to say he hadn't been there? He gets in the girl's car for a ride and realizes it's taking him away from the van and he won't know what's going on so he freaked out and got out?

    I don't think Brian Laundrie cares about anyone's suffering, including his parents.

    Just another point about the dogs.

    I'm not sure how hot it is in this area right now but when it is hot, dogs tend to breathe through their mouths rather than their noses. Panting is a way to cool down,

    They won't last long in those conditions and overheat quite easily. Once they move to mouth breathing they CAN'T SMELL.

    My guess is that they have an overabundance of dogs because they will only be good for short periods of time, will need to rest and cool down, and sub in a different dog to take over.

    The conditions these dogs are working under are extremely harsh. Heat Exhaustion would be a real concern.

    Its time for someone to offer at least a $50-$100K reward for information that leads to BL's capture. There's nothing like cold, hard cash to loosen lips.
    Brian is a human being. He's going to get hungry. He's going to need to clean himself up. He needs to relieve himself. He needs toilet paper, water, a change of clean clothes. He's going to need someone to provide these things, or he's going to have to provide them for himself. He's the star of this show, so he's going to look for free WiFi to keep up on his fame and keep track of where he thinks the bulk of the searches for him are. Look for him in internet cafe's, motels, fast food places - if he's on his own. Otherwise, he's got a relative stashing him away somewhere.

    He's a loner only to the extent that its in his nature to be so. Actually, he's been almost fully dependent upon his Mommy and Daddy for food, shelter and unwavering support. His independence is an illusion. He's in his twenties, jobless and living off the family. That kind of behavior will continue.

    Looks very Belgian Malinois to me, but even experts can't always tell. Mals have become exceedingly popular for protection training, SAR, etc. Working dogs need drive, and Mals are pretty much in overdrive whenever they're not sleeping.

    I have this same thought. If he was going to kill himself in remorse, it probably wouldve happened sooner. If its fear of capture, then why put your parents through this. I know its possible he's selfish, but I dunno. MOO

    I almost put that in my post, hoping that she had an edited next video that was nearly ready for upload, but I don't think I'd feel comfortable watching a video of the Happy couple loving their journey. Maybe if it was used by a DV watch channel raising money for awareness.

    My opinion--that's precisely why he went there. LE has to know that, though, so why are they putting so much effort into a search for a dead body that may be impossible to find in that terrain? Is is definitely frustrating to contemplate, as you say!

    Thank you for clearing that up. When I was watching live after that time, they were replaying edited helicopter footage and the anchor said that their copter spotted what they believed to be a body but they would not be showing the footage.

    But you’d think that if there was a delay, it would start with at least something from the 2,700-ish miles between the start of their trip and when Gabby first talks directly to camera at about 4:30 in the vid. At that point, from the landscape and surroundings, IMO they’re already almost all the way across the USA.

    JMO but I think something happened with the footage, photos and perhaps other pieces where Gabby talked to the camera. Just strikes me as odd that there’s essentially nothing from across the twelve or thirteen states that their journey covered between when they left FL for Gabby’s brother’s graduation in Long Island and when we first see her speak directly to camera/the audience.

    And they certainly had time to get it for him before he went walkabout. And if Gabby had any, I'm sure he scooped that up, too. Grrrrr.

    Where are you seeing BL'S parents to make this observation of not being concerned? They are down for the count seems to me. They're in hiding too.

    There's 1 live I can find, and it's the news station listening to a scanner . I'm not sure they would announce finding him over a scanner ,but who knows.

    So I was thinking at 2 am when I couldn’t sleep. If Brian is alive, his house backs up to an alley right? I think it’s possible that in the cover of darkness, and with his parents house being dark at night, he sneaks in at night and he’s sleeping comfortably in his bed after a hot shower and poking fun at the media because they don’t see him.
