    They could simply, after months on the road, have realized there were some things in storage they wanted and had room for on the rest of their trip that they’d left behind but now wanted. Supplies for the road trip.

    There are also some ~things~ that can be used in a somewhat “therapeutic” senses for couples (though illegally and not classically therapeutic without guided therapy). There is research being done on these things, if you catch my drift. Maybe they felt their relationship needed a deep-dive connective experience and had some of these things stashed away in a storage locker. I certainly wouldn’t want my parents to ship that to me, either. I am not supporting or discounting that something like this, (not even necessarily this but to your point of “what could they not want shipped?) necessitated the visit to the storage locker.

    I also think that retrieving something from the locker doesn’t take 5 full days (7 days including travel). It was likely only a portion of his trip home that was devoted to that.

    Unless he picked something up during that trip and brought it back to SLC with him, and that something became involved in her death, I don’t think that the trip is necessarily related to what happened to Gabby a week after he retuned. However, the mystery of the odd timeline surrounding the 2 weeks between the Moab DV stop and her death, including this trip, is what makes it speculative that it’s related in some way. I just don’t see how it’s related unless her COD relates to something he retrieved from the locker (weapon, toxicology, etc).

    Wasn't the 21st the night her dad had food Ubered to her? Why would she need to go out for gas station junk food. Also, if I recall correctly there was a power outage that day. You'd think if someone was retelling a sighting from that day it would have been mentioned , "The power had just came back on when she came in ..." or something like that

    Oh I agree. I just don't believe the storage unit thing. Trying to think of something else.

    Yeah I think it’s highly unlikely. He’s on the run and enjoying the attention IMO.

    I think they were living VanLife on a dime vs the online persona. They both looked like they needed some healthy meals in the LE videos. JMO

    The storage locker.

    Everyone has been asking how it makes sense to pay for a plane ticket and a hotel room for BL to fly down to clean out a storage locker, which is a very valid question.

    My question, though, if there was room in the house for the stuff, why didn't they clean out the storage locker before they left for the trip? They had been planning this trip for over a year. Why spend the money for the storage locker in July and August (and probably June too) during a time in which they had no income? What changed to open up a less expensive option sometime in mid-August?

    To be quite honest - I'm not holding a lot of worth about the Vlog/Blog. My reasoning? Well, when this case first broke, views of their SM were tiny and according to a previous post (or was it when I was watching Dr Phil), a father said GP had done a lot of prep for this adventure (like 12-18months). IMO if that was the case, there would have been more prep work on the SM side to promote their VAnLife before setting off ( for example vlogs on converting the van, getting ready, what they need to pack etc). To me, it does not indicate that this was going to be a serious money maker for them. There simply was not enough investment (in terms of time and creative content) to get the project off the ground.

    Idk, but the sighting of both of them at the convenience store on the 21st doesn't match the timeline at the link on page 1 of each thread.

    snipped by me for ease and space

    Good points!

    Okay this statement that is BBM.
    what items??? what did you possibly forget to pack in June, that you desperately need in august , that you can find in no other place but florida?
    As others have said: zero logic..fly home to close storage space, to save money. I am venturing a guess that the cost of the flight was more than the storage unit.

    I would love if someone could investigate this whole storage thing. It has always perplexed me.

    Last I wonder if the time away that GP realized that she was actually okay without BL, maybe got some strength and clarity, and he was not having it.

    JMO all of the abovve.

    What if he did a plea deal to a diversion program? And spent those few days, e.g., at anger management classes?
    What if the case was settled the day before court?
    What if he had a hearing on expungement?

    I would think that if he went into that reserve and had help from his parents, he would have a gun to take care of any gators. I just don't understand their end plan. Would he live in the reserve, dodging LE for the rest of his life? Did anyone think this through?

    While I think the protestors can go back from whence they came, I have no problem whatsoever with the fact that the Laundries are effectively trapped inside their house. I want them to have to think about Gabby and her family every time they look outside.

    Did anyone besides the lawyer "verify" the trip 17th -23rd? Did Cassie verify it?

    Haywood County backs up to the Cherokee Reservation. Federal or local authorities have NO jurisdiction on the reservation. Could this be an optimum place to hide?

    This is purely speculation and probably way off base but I have a thought that when BL flew home in August he confided in his parents that things were headed downhill between him and Gabby. He did not want to resume the cross country trip. His parents pressured him to do "the right thing" and help her complete the trip. They feel a sense of responsibility for having done that and that (among other reasons) is why they are supporting BL so wholeheartedly. Just a thought.

    Expunged charges are just that. They are entirely removed. There is still a sealed record but are not available to to public.

    Also, I think it would be umlikely they were buying bottled water, from what we know.
