It took me 4 days to get caught back up on this. That's why I get for leaving town to run an actual race over the weekend.
The best post I've read was from page 196 about NOT giving up on finding more data. It's somewhere out there.
We only have one video from a car wash. The guy has run (or daned) passed tons of car washes, gas stations, fast food restaurants, banks, and dirty book stores. I looked at his route through northern Arizona/New Mexico/Colorado. In Flagstaff, where I live, he went right down our only road, passed every business on rt 66. Chevron at the corner of Milton, Barnes & Noble, Papa John's, Flagstaff Chamber of Commerce, the AMTRAK station...etc. Then he venured off onto the Rez. Cameron has gas stations, so does Tuba City, Kayenta, Farmington has a ton of crap, so does Alamosa. It might be too late to obtain security camera footage, but you could get lucky and score some extremely damning evidence.
I know that Facebook strips metadata, but those same pictures might be somewhere else still with time stamps intact. Again, could get lucky.
To me, the best evidence that he's taking rides is the fact that he deleted his old data (but someone was smart enough to copy it first). danus did the same thing when he got called out on that 202 AOR. He was tweeting updates (time stamped) of where he was and how far he had 'ran'. Then he deletes the tweets. If they were legit, then you would NEVER delete them as they'd provide some factual evidence of your extraordinary claim. dumbo forgot that the tweets were still on his Strands profile, and RY let us copy the kml file before he deleted it. They always make mistakes.
Also, I'm very familiar with a lot of his route around here. No way in hell he dropped a 35 min 10k around Williams. There's a significant uphill before town. There's even a climbing lane for semis on I-40. Then you still climb up to the Arizona Divide outside of Parks before dropping a little to Bellemont and a little more drop into Flagstaff.
The route after Flagstaff is pretty stupid. I would've just stayed on the interstate through Albuquerque. Cutting through the Rez is idiotic. US 89 isn't bad, but US 160 is stupid dangerous to run on. It's 2 lanes, 65mpm speed limit (which nobody obeys), lots of drunk drivers, almost no passing lanes, narrow shoulder, no street lights...etc. I would totally take a ride in an RV through this section...after a quick trip to the Grand Canyon. Who the hell does that? If you wanna see the canyon then take US 64 when you hit Williams. Don't double back when you hit Cameron.
Please, please, visit these businesses and ask if you can watch their footage for a couple of minutes.
The smoking gun is there!
Can't we pledge to give a certain amount of $ if someone manages to get new footage?
