    I don't think the families were that close. And, both Gabby and Brian were legal adults, so if Brian said Gabby stayed behind for whatever reason--his parents likely believed him and figured Gabby would be in touch with her own parents.

    I have a question. If you want an email to be sent at a specific date in the future, how does that work?
    How far in advance can you schedule an email?
    Is it then stored on your device, or is it already on a server somewhere?
    Can you recall it if you don't want it to be sent at the date you scheduled it to be sent?
    If it's not on a server but on your device, does your device have to be on stand by?
    And how long does a full battery remain on standby and able to send off a scheduled email?

    I'm wondering if BL scheduled an email for his parents with a location and instructions to be received after 4-5 weeks?
    And then leave his notebook and belongings stored in waterproof bags, up in a tree or something. And subsequently walk into alligator infested waters and shoot himself?

    I agree. I don’t think you take your laptop to a swamp if you’re planning on suicide. Especially if you keep it in a dry bag. He was planning to live IMO.
    This could actually be an accidental drowning.

    This doesn't fully answer your question, but here's a good link for a weather almanac you can change the date and scroll to look at precipitation.

    Thanks for the helpful info. I am a bit worried too, tbh. That environment is extremely harsh on remains, as is submergence in water. Jmo

    "Warning for young couples to look out for fits of rage. It may save the next young woman's life".

    But we must have teaching for males as well.


    This was a couple. Couples do have ways to drive the other crazy. I fully agree that Brian was jealous, weak, and gaslighting, whether he realized it or not. But I strongly believe that both female and male knew how to push each other's buttons.

    I just do not believe we are being just, by continuing to dismiss that Gabby had nothing to do with their problems.

    When I first saw it, I thought it was a stubby antenna on a radio and that he’d been communicating with his parents.

    indefinite, however long you would like

    as long as the email service remains active I'm sure you could send an email in 2050 if you want to

    would be odd if you made a mistake with the shopping list and got an email 30 years later telling yourself to buy milk lol

    The pregnant possibilities in this statement are so mouth watering as to have me pondering the possibilities of two (or more) lammists scrambling with BL over a phone or a granola bar.
    Don't send me there Xman...don't do it!

    When his parents initially went to pick up the Mustang didn't they briefly look for Brian? If they found where he was so easily yesterday couldn't they have just as easily found him that day? I'm paraphrasing here but it does seem a bit odd. Maybe they just didn't look very thoroughly. FWIW, I do believe he's been in that spot since very early on. Probably when his parents retrieved the car. JMO

    ETA: Or the water was too high then. I'm unsure of exact dates, this was just a question that came to me.

    The contents of the dry bag & the rucksack will be so revealing.
    It's unfortunate that they only wanted to tell us about one item - his notebook.

    A WSer posted some magnified images of the dry bag a few threads back but have forgotten her name so can't tag her in. Be interested, if you saw the posts, if you thought they looked like rips - looked like rips to me, but you'd know better
