college student during ear. likely a part time contraction gig in painting. maybe that led to a carer in construction/painting and later a management position. and now he berates and belittles his staff which is nice if it means he isn't raping and murdering the next door neighbours of his customers...but that is just my idea this week. it will change next week when i reconsider the maddeningly little solid evidence available in this case.
This pretty much sums up my theory. He took a break one year during the winter which was consistent with a college winter break. If that was the only time he did that, I think he may have been in his senior year and went on to graduate and therefore no more winter break. And I do think that he is a tyrannical boss making his employees lives hell somewhere.
I think he had a military background: maybe kicked out, maybe did his stint and left, but not a military careerist. I see him as a 2-year, junior college student.
I also see him as a driver because there is plenty of distance in some of the crimes (Danville to Goleta etc). But "driver" might encompass picking up old cars for sale or delivering them.
Or he worked at a bike shop or he was well known to a bike shop. He stole several bikes, but he rode fast enough that he was probably putting on around 150 miles a week or more. I rode around 80 miles a week tops for a couple of years. I was never in the athletic condition the ear/ons was considered to be in. He rode a lot. A lot a lot. I would be surprised if he didn't have a regular bike shop and know other cyclists.
Real Estate agent is an interesting choice because you can have a realtor's license and not work. It's not hard to get a realtor's license. I believe you can renew the license every year even if you aren't selling homes.
This is significant because in the 70s the MLS was a closely guarded secret. Realtors were more secretive with the MLS than with their own social security numbers.
ear used empty houses occasionally. If he had the MLS, he'd have had a list of which ones were empty and which homes were just sold.
I wonder if LE has looked at licensed male realtors outside of Sacramento (Visalia, Stockton, Fresno) who never sold homes, but kept up their licenses.

drdoogie, this particular Drag Queen is much better off as a male, no mistaking him for a female no matter how much jewelry or makeup. LOL
I believe construction. The paint chip evidence for one, the timing of the Calle Real project and the first attempted murder in Oct 1979 on Queen Ann in Goleta. The map evidence and it is clearly influenced by "The Village" homes in Davis. The toggeling back and forth from Davis to Modesto "by plane" leads me to speculate he was not just a painter but higher up in a company, and again my speculation is that he was the son of the boss. The taxi driver in Modesto picking up the fare from the airport and dropping him off at Sylvan and Coffee where there was nothing but homes under construction and the victim living on the other side of those homes. The footprints leading from "The Village" homes to the UCDavis airport. There is a couple of other construction connections to Modesto and somewhere else that I can't mention but are interesting.
Personally, it is my thought that the homes for sale just offered him an opportunity to be in the area and to check out floor plans and also to actually be in vacant homes and use them to do surveillance. In Hunting A Psychopath, it is mentioned that he probably spent time in a vacant home's laundry room that had a clear view of the victim's home and cigarette butts were found in the laundry room to bolster that theory. Realtors were thoroughly checked and if he was a realtor I think he would have been found. That's just my opinion.
This came to me recently too. His geography of state wide attacks could be explained by being based in Sacramento. Not being Californian my knowledge of the city/state is patchy, but if Sacramento has one thing plenty of it is employment prospects with state wide reach.

steelbike: do you remember the old ‘The Beat’ — before it’s last location on J street? Alhambra maybe— it’s been so long... I remember Tower Records. One of the only places, bitd, where a punk rocker may have been able to get a job.

goldrusher: steelbike I do remember The Beat. In fact, I remember my mother bought me "Headquarters" by The Monkees on cassette there. Like Charles Bukowski said....the courage of my memory.
