    There's also a post on either GP or BL Instagram noting that they were listening to a crime podcast called "Morbid". The comments under the photo are from WSers and Redditors like us here, all saying the same thing. She was one of us.

    Maybe he was taking notes?

    If it was BL (and I think that is a big "if"), maybe Gabby was the navigator. :(

    Or maybe he's used to using a phone to navigate and to be able to tell Google maps to "avoid highways"? He might not have a phone, or might have it turned off so it wouldn't show up.

    I do hope it was indeed BL and not a hoaxer or some weird confused guy.

    I didn't realise he was on the most wanted list, but there Gabby's name is at #12.

    (Though, technically, BL's name is not included ... it is more of a request for information, which includes her unnamed boyfriend.)

    I don’t recall seeing that the OP mentioned GP but I will take your word for it and retract my statement if that is the case.

    ETA actually looking back, I did not see that someone before you made that statement as I only read your post and that is what I was responding to. No worries though, these threads go so quickly that it’s easy to miss something.

    My son is 33. Over the past 3 or 4 years he has dated three women in their late 20s/30s and all three of them have been into crime/murders, etc. And he's into those types of shows as well. Not his mother! I cover my eyes for fictional scary stuff.

    Snipped for focus.
    Several ways:
    1. Get someone to drive the car, drop you off and pick you up. Some people hike the whole AT this way. I did this for a few days; it was such a luxury. Another hiker's spouse did the driving. The hiker hiked this way for the entire trip. Almost always a light day pack, not an overnight pack. How I wished...
    2. Park your car, hitchhike to a starting point, and then hike to your car. I have done this.
    3. Get someone to shuttle you. Or pay someone to shuttle the car. I have done this.
    4. Park, stay at a hostel, and have the hostel owner "slack you". They take you to a trail point (just a daypack, no overnight stuff) and you hike to the hostel. I have done this.

    i get what you are saying, and i feel the individual who reported this "sighting" is possibly well meaning, but mistaken...yet, if you were on the run, the thought has to occur to you that you will eventually be caught...i don't see any scenario where he gets away with hiding in the U.S. for the rest of his life...so would you rather be caught being thought of as a devious murderer who has flouted the law, or as someone who has exhibited behavior that might be interpreted as some sort of mental instability? again, i don't think this was BL, but it's interesting to consider.

    I cannot believe SNL has had two skits referencing this situation. I don't recall this happening before.

    That would be just like him. He never takes responsibility for anything. He weasels out of it.

    The trouble with turning off the main roads option is you can end up far away from a gas station or a restaurant, or anywhere you can ask for directions. You can end up with no phone signal. You can end up in some strange places where the roads are unmarked with no street signs, like a graveyard on the side of a cliff, LOL. Been there, done that a few times.

    I can't find any updates on Dog's hunt last few days. Has his trail gone cold?

    Idk, but he has been very quiet, imo. Maybe the FBI asked him to back off? Idk but it is a noticeable change to me. Jmo

    I think now that he's killed once, he wouldn't hesitate to kill again if he perceived someone got in his way.

    JMO of course

    All I can think if FBI totally ignored the tipster is that they know where BL is, dead or alive. Or maybe they always act disinterested, but still check out reasonable tips. dunno jmo

    Does BL have a vehicle, and if so how did he get it? Or did I misread?
