This is what I see too.
Emporia is west of Lebo.
If that is RY sauntering through, the pacer continues well out of town and circles back. RY covers 2.7 miles from the CCTV to the presumed pickup point where the RV appears to stop after driving 30 mph during the backtrack. You can estimate RY has about 83-93 min to cover that 2.7 mi. Reasonable with walking and stopping.
Here's the real question though--if they just left him behind would they do it again immediately?
Because immediately after this fiasco, the pace picks up to 6:15 for the next 15.3 miles heading east out of Emporia towards Lebo. Either they dropped him again (off the back of the van-where he wasn't present in the original video), or he found quite the second wind after the walking bit in Emporium.
The tracker slows down when they reach Lebo, then they apparently sleep just East of Lebo.
If they've only left him ~5 times, that hurts their case. The tracker has all kinds of instances of him running paces we don't suspect he can do.
Don't forget, they have verified in their account to runners world that Rob was with the RV at Lebo (the intesection of Fauna and Old Highway 50) because that is where they were afraid of me as I ran up from behind.
If the RV did not slow down again between Emporia and Lebo (after it looped back for Rob), then he MUST be going the same pace as the RV over the distance from Emporia to Lebo in order to be with the RV when I run up behind it.[/quote]
Sorry for reposting this summary, but I want to be clear (times are CST):
22:26 GPS check-in entering Emporia, 10:00 pace
22:36 RV goes by the car wash in Emporia
22:38 GPS check-in near Mr. G's car wash, 6:12 pace
22:44 walker with light swinging in hand by car wash, 20-min pace?
22:50 GPS check-in just past Commercial St, 5:57 pace
23:02 GPS check-in just out of town, 6:06 pace
23:14 GPS check-in approaching Rd R1, 6:38 pace
23:26 GPS check-in near Badger Creek, 8:11 pace
23:38 GPS check-in near Rd U, 8:54 pace
Shortly after this, RV is headed back towards Emporia.
23:50 GPS check-in (headed west), 2:57 pace
00:02 GPS check-in (headed west), 19:54 pace
I think likely they had turned around by this point, hence the slow pace, they are headed back east. The rest of the check-ins are heading east (paces approximate).
00:14 GPS check-in, 6:04 pace
00:26 GPS check-in, 6:17 pace

At this point, Asher runs after the RV and they drive off.
