desperately needed that RVC address at the east end of the cut-through he could walk 40 feet. About the same distance as back to his truck...
If he never gets out of the truck, there is no "back to the truck" necessary.
Assuming we're talking about the version where he only gets out of the truck (in a great big hurry) to go get an address.
I agree the back entrance was the probable destination of TM .
Most of us were fooled into thinking he might actually be returning to Brandy Green's house.
So he was just cutting through The Retreat at Twin Lakes to get to South Oregon Avenue?
I also agree if GZ wanted to do more than simply wait and make a report, then his truck was a good option. That he didn't use the truck speaks volumes.
I personally would be in no hurry to scrunch in my truck while waiting for, who knows how long?
I thought that's what Zimmerman was supposed to be doing, waiting for the police to arrive.
(If not he could have just driven around, gotten the RVC address, called back and told them "I last saw him near XXXX Retreat View Circle, you guys handle it, I'm going to get groceries.")
I'm pretty sure they'd have gotten there at the same time whether he was behind the wheel or out on foot in the dark and the rain.
