I think it is clear he was on RVC at the clubhouse at the start.
Nonsense. Zimmerman didn't say a word about his own location.
Look at Zimmerman's earlier suspicious person calls.Logs 8/3/11
P. 39. One burglary suspect. 8/6/11
P. 40. Two burglary suspects.10/1/11
P. 42. Two men loitering in a car.2/2/12
P. 45. Suspicious man at 1460 RVC.
Zimmerman gave the clubhouse address for all of these calls except the last one. (The Event Report for the first one, 8/3/11, has 1110, but that wasn't Zimmerman's error. On the audio you can hear him give the correct address.)
The 8/3/11 call was the first suspicious person call Zimmerman made after he and Shellie moved into RATL. Zimmerman explained why he used the clubhouse address.
Dispatcher: OK. And what's your address out there?
Zimmerman: I'd rather not give out my address, because he's obviously in the neighborhood. But it's Retreat View Circle. You can use one one one one, which is the clubhouse.
In later calls Zimmerman gave the clubhouse address without the explanation.
The address was the first question the dispatcher asked on the first three calls. On the fourth call, 2/2/12, Zimmerman volunteered the address the first time he spoke, as he did on 2/26.
The 2/2 call is the incident Zimmerman mentioned in his SPD interviews as contributing to his suspicion of Martin, because he saw Martin in front of the same house. On that call he decided to give the address of the residence he was concerned about.
Why didn't Zimmerman give 1460 RVC as the incident location on 2/26? I can think of two reasons.
One would be that Zimmerman made up the story of sighting Martin in front of that house.
On the NEN call, Zimmerman never said anything about a house that was sensitive because of a previous incident. He didn't mention houses at all when he first explained to the dispatcher what had aroused his suspicions. This was the entire indictment:
It's raining, and he's just walking around, looking about.
No one need remind me that Zimmerman also said Martin looked like he was 'on drugs'. Zimmerman explained that in his last SPD interview. It was an inference from the 'looking about', not a distinct observation (2/29-3, 1:32-41).
In the story of first sighting Martin at 1460 RVC, Zimmerman seems to have gotten a good look at him. As he drove past, he fortuitiously had to slow down for a vehicle backing out (2/29-1, 8:22-25). And Martin looked at him (2/26-1, 4:10-26; 2/27R,
25:36-26:02, 6:44:13-39, 2/29-1, 8:03-53; 2/29-3, 0:51-1:18).
Martin would have been standing under a streetlight.
On the NEN recording, to me it sounds for all the world as if Zimmerman got his first close look at Martin during the call.
If Zimmerman told the truth about the first sighting at 1460 RVC, the only reason I can see for him not giving that address to the dispatcher would be if he knew Martin wasn't there anymore. (That wouldn't explain why he didn't mention the sensitive house at all.)
This would be consistent with Zimmerman's statements, but not with the popular hypothesis that Martin was coming from 1460 RVC when Zimmerman said 'Now he's coming towards me'. Audio
