Re: [RobertMBlevins] Something new for you folks [In reply to] Can't Post

In reply to:
I once made it over Snoqualmie Pass in a snowstorm, driving a Corvair with four bald tires. But it's a different story on Forest Service roads at night, in winter. The real point is that she was sure it was the Brit sports car...until she was reminded what it's like up there above 1,500 feet or so.
__________________________________________________

Blevins, I grew up in the snow country of Eastern Washington, and I have never heard of anyone being so ridiculous as to go over Snoqualmie Pass in a snow storm, in bald tires. You can't be serious. You got a death wish or what?

Blevins, get some good studded snow tires, then put about 500-600 pounds of sand in the back of your rig, a little in front of the rear axle (assuming you have rear-wheel drive), and you'll be able to go anywhere. A few years back I drove from Tacoma, WA to Kamloops, BC in a bigtime snow storm the whole way, and had absolutely no problems.

That is very good and puts you in the Four Wheeler Hall of Fame. Trout Lake, yes...good destination. Might be tough in wintertime without proper gear though. I'll admit if you were equipped, they'd never find you if you went that way. On a Cooper angle, I've always thought he just headed toward wherever he saw big lights on the way down, if any. I like the idea that maybe he just did the Big Hike Out, too. No, I don't go with it, but it's cool to consider.

No.. but the next spring I did get a 1957 Willys PickemupSmile

As far as that big hike....

Escape and Evasion works best when you do the unexpected.

I'm guessing Cooper may have gotten a general idea where he was on the way down, assuming he pulled the ripcord right off the stairs. (Lights from interstate 5 maybe, or he figured out which way was west on the way down and kept it in mind) Then he probably just walked out from there. If he was in a really bad spot, he probably waited for first light. Marla's tale about someone cruising Forest Service roads, picking up an uncle within a short time, and making it back to Sisters in the morning...well, let's just say it's a bit of a stretch.

'Hey Blevins, I'm going to let you in on a little secret. You are not in the same league as Georger. You're Little League, he's Major League. He's played hard ball with the big boys, you haven't. He's spent years and years on the case, you've been here 3 years. He has academic credentials with an advanced degree, you don't -- I could go on. I am not trying to openly endorse Georger here, but facts are facts -- the truth is the truth. There are some people here (with real credentials and real experience) who don't have any patience for someone who regularly pops off with so many ridiculous, unfounded, outlandish assumptions and statements. Your respectability and credibility have been (permanently) damaged by it. There are people here who really know when someone doesn't have any clue or idea what they are talking about. Some people here have no patience for genuine, unadulterated, incompetence and ignorance. And I don't think you even give a rat's ass. But you should. You're making a fool of yourself...'

Wow, that's harsh. However, I don't base any possible credibility or respectability in my personal life solely on the Cooper case. That was a passing thing, a job, an assignment I took reluctantly that ended up costing me thousands of dollars and nearly bankrupting AB of Seattle. If Gayla Prociv hadn't finally said 'enough' we would not be in business today.

My only real contribution to the case is pretty simple. This guy in New York asked me to interview some people, so I did. Then I published the results. With the mailing to Curtis Eng at the Seattle FBI yesterday, I consider that job finished. It's in their hands now, whatever they choose to do with it. They probably won't do a thing.

There is another side to this Cooper Coin, and it's an ugly one. One thing I've discovered is that there is a lot of competition, a lot of ugliness involved. One only has to view the comments left on Regina's Kenny Christiansen article to see this. 382 comments, some VERY bad. This is why almost everyone who posts up something at YouTube about DB Cooper (other than stock footage) disallows commenting. They know better, because the Nasty Folk come out of the woodwork.

They do things like steal usernames from each other at Dropzone to make the filthy comments, for example. They use my name, Georger's name, Marla, Geoff Gray, Ckret, just about every name associated with the case imaginable. This proves that these people come from HERE to make their comments, although it's so screwy you don't know who is who for real. But that's the World of Cooper.

Credibility isn't about making mistakes. ('Scott went back to talk to Cooper.' 'Threw money into river at Paradise Point') It's about truth. No one has ever said I have lied to them regarding the Cooper case on anything. EVER.

People got angry when I shredded Marla's story, while the FBI and ABC News were swallowing that pap with a big wooden spoon. Why is that? You want to talk credibility, don't speak of Marla. As it turns out, I was right about the whole thing. All people did was get angry at me. Blame the messenger for the message. Here we are a year and some months later and look what happened: No one believes her anymore, the FBI was a negative on the tests, and Marla herself finally backed off on her claims. (This from Doug Kenck-Crispin, organizer of next year's Symposium)

I may not know every detail on the Cooper case, but I'm not bad at rooting out crap from people either. People even got angry at me for questioning the FBI's results on the Amboy chute. They defended Cossey's one-sided assessment and simply forgave the Seattle FBI's ridiculous statements on it. Not my fault they tried to push that weak-ass story on everyone. Then the whole thing got buried.

There are the academics in this case. And then there are the renegades who question everything. I see myself more as the latter. If you catch me lying on a point in the case, you can question my credibility. Those 'outlandish assumptions' you speak of were mostly times when I tossed theories out there. They were not statements of fact. Some made sense, others did not. One I still think makes sense is the idea (rather minor) that Cooper probably backed down the stairs and then pulled the ripcord right off the last step. But that's just a theory, of course.

Question Everything. Smile

Yes, that last post I made addresses the issue of Robert. That's because of MeyerLouie's comment, which was the same thing. So I answered it.

FYI: You should see some of the comments made over at Regina's article in YOUR name. Most can't be repeated. Don't know if you are married, but they've even taken to using your wife:

Quote:
'Georgerette (Mrs. Georger) May 14, 2012 at 4:33 PM

Im not trying to appeal to Paul Quade at the DZ or to Regina. Im just saying this. Robert Blevins is an idiot. He wants us to believe that Gayla posted as the Big Cheese. Ha. What kind of woman calls herself the Head Honcho or the Big Cheese? 377 should be ashamed of himself for falling prey to an amateur stunt like that. I thought 377 was supposed to be a lawyer and smarter. Right over his head, so he should be banned too.

Anyway, my husband Georger is a professor and a highly intelligent man with a lot to contribute to the DB Cooper mystery. He didnt get me to write this posting either. Im just saying that Robert Blevins, the Little Cheese, should be permanently banned for abusing the DZ and making a mockery of the DZ and the DB Cooper case. Thank you, Paul Quade, for figuring out the obvious. Regina knows the truth too.

Georgerette.'

I quit visiting that article a year ago, until just now. It's a complete nuthouse. And if you drop by to see the remaining comments, then you'll know where the real 'stupid' and 'pompous ass' folks reside.

At first, Regina tried to moderate that article, but she finally gave it up, and then 300+ more comments went up, mostly filth. Almost everyone on the DZ Cooper thread, or associated somehow with Cooper...well, their name has been used.

Regina said this when she was trying to mod the article, before she abandoned the effort:

Quote:
'Robert, I agree. The majority of the comments are all coming from the same 3 IP addresses...'

From the constant references in those comments leading back to topics and names used on this thread, these 'same three IP addresses' are users on this thread. But that was a long while back, and it's become obvious that others who post here are doing the same thing. I may be a lot of things, but at least I'm not a phony. There are phonies residing on this thread, obviously.

For the record: I'm certain you didn't make that comment Georger, or any of the others. Just thought people here on this thread should know how their names are being stolen for those comments. It's an endless list, and the names are familiar: Jerry Thomas, 377, SA's Curtis Eng and Larry Carr, Geoff Gray, Tom 'Kay', (they spelled his name wrong), Bernie Geestman (he doesn't have internet anyway), Himmelsbach, Rataczak, the 'Seattle FBI Field Office'...LOL. Like I said, it's a big list.

When I said back there in a previous post that there is a lot of ugliness associated with the Cooper case, the comments on that article are the best example that this is true.

Amboy or Ariel to Trout Lake.. easy. on the way... you cross Wind River it comes out at Carson.. you could even exit that way in the Columbia River Gorge.

There are all kinds of logging roads in that area.. ANY good Forest Service or County map shows them. Stick to the lower numbers and those are the mainlines. most of the roads are fairly flat to travel.. and at night you can see lights coming or hear a vehicle coming to get off the road.

The Good Old Days [In reply to] Can't Post

The Good Old Days: When you traveled Forest Service roads and all you saw were campers, other four-wheelers or off-roaders, mushroom hunters, loggers, fishermen, people drinking or getting high (yes) but not getting too crazy about it, target shooters...

2012: Spurs that dead-end and you find the remains of meth labs, (propane, containers, hoses, etc) stolen cars, not-as-friendly-as-they-used-to-be rangers, stolen cars shot full of holes, huge piles of trash...underage kids in stolen cars shooting guns and getting high...

Olympics are generally better these days. One time I was up on some FS road out of Yakima and five guys passed me going downhill in a van. I had a generator and a ton of nice new camping gear in the back of the truck. They saw me, made eye contact, and whipped that van around as soon as they reached a wide spot. I can't say why without being racist, but let's just say I knew they weren't coming back to simply say hello. They practically drooled on my Honda generator as they went by. Gangster types for sure.

So...I get out of my truck and pop a box mag into this old bolt-action Lee Enfield. Shot .308 Winchester I believe. I fired three shots in the air. They turned around and went back down the hill. I used to go camping sometimes without a weapon. Now I wouldn't think of going without one. A REALLY dangerous area in the Cascades these days are the FS roads that start near Wilkeson, or the ones leading off Interstate 90 near the summit of Snoqualmie that go back west, and anything in the Greenwater area off Highway 410. God help ya if you pull down a dead end on those Greenwater roads and they're cooking meth. No kidding.

The Good Old Days were better. Unimpressed Even the criminals had manners.

I am in a lot of pain tonight, but I have to look at something on the old maps. OLD maps.

Was there NOT camp up there?

What kind of camp was it in the late 40's? Duane knew all the roads - needed NO map. When I dig out the old map with areas marked - I will post them, but I am sure everyone will say Naah she made it all up. I would not acquire this map until after 2001.
But, I made marks on all the places Duane mentioned along our route that I could remember.

Wish I had the map when I was there in 2001 and had been free to get behind the wheel of a car like I did on the last visit in 2010.

I could NOT cover all the area I wanted to cover - so I just tried to go to the ones he actually took me to.

Sure as hell wish I could have found the area the the tower had been, but had been removed when Duane and I were there in 1989....the land was flat and not far from a set of tracks. The tree growth was low where the logging road had been to the tracks. He told me there used to be a shed there and he buried something behind it. The look on his face at this site sitting in the middle of the woods - I will never ever forget.

From the size of the trees - I would estimate the road and tower had not been used in several yrs. Perhaps the tower was taken down for safety reasons after the loggin company moved out. Probably was a development when I was there in 2010 - and why I could NOT find it.

I kept hoping someone would remember it and maybe have some old pics from 1978 and perhaps some old pics from 1971 and before. If anyone ever found such I would recognize it. I see it every time my mind revisits the trip in 1979.

I wish I had made pictures of all of that - then I wouldn't have to be proving myself to a bunch of jerks.

At any rate I can't hang in here much longer.

Good Night.

P.S. for Georger:
I read the Citzens Sleuth records - and I did NOT agree with the findings - as they were all influenced by a lot of evidence that has since been proven NOT VALID.

Such as the Dan Cooper Comics
The validity of the tie and other things. Just more of the same things that we discussed here. It was all about Larry Carr trying to MAKE a name for himself.

__________________________________________________

What's in question is your credibility and respectability here. Nobody here knows your personal life, unless you've become friends with people here and invited them into your home. DZ knows of you mainly by what you say here on the thread.

So you think it's okay to be a rebel and a renegade here; that gives you license to say any ridiculous, outlandish, and unfounded thing you want to say.

You don't get it. That's exactly your problem. I get the impression that people like Georger have no patience for people who has not done their homework, nor does he have any patience for people who don't know what they're talking about. And just talking here doesn't cut it, and saying whatever pops into your head does't cut it either. Join the Deep Throat Forum if you want to do that.

You haven't lost credibility because you've lied, I don't think you intentionally ever try to lie. You've lost credibility because you haven't done your homework and you talk about things you know nothing about. Ever stop to think that these might be the reasons why some people here react so negatively toward you?

Maybe tomorrow morning Blevins, listen to your rice crispies. Do whatever they tell you to do. You might get better results with that.

And then what !?

I read the Citzens Sleuth records - and I did NOT agree with the findings - as they were all influenced by a lot of evidence that has since been proven NOT VALID.

Talk to Tom Kaye.
It really takes some gall for Jo Weber to claim that Tom Kaye's findings "were all influenced by a lot of evidence that has since been proven NOT VALID".

Jo, Can you name a single finding that the above statement applies to?

And while you are at it, can you name a single piece of anything, "evidence" or otherwise, that supports your allegations that Duane Weber was Cooper?

That's a fairly broad statement. How about some examples that you really have a problem with? You'll have to narrow it down a bit. I think pretty much everyone who has ever posted on this thread has made 'ridiculous, outlandish, and unfounded' statements occasionally. Cool

Re: [Amazon] Trout Lake [In reply to] Can't Post

 
I found the old map. Sure beats sitting at this computer.

Trout Lake was mentioned when we cross the river at The River of the Gods. He mentioned a road that went Bingham and to Klickitat and back to Goldendale.

This was his second time to speak of Goldendale and the "Guys". The first time was before we crossed the Columbia.
He talks about climbing and jumping from rocks. I never understood this - is there a place like that in that area?

Trout Lake and the road that went there - it again was the "guys", but I have never been able to recall what he said about Trout Lake other than a camp and the Guys.

We continue on this road along the Columbia to the Bonneville Dam. We get out of the car at this point and he tells me about the dam. Then this is when we go over a "mountain" but you guys called it a hill. It was later on down the road when he thought he had missed his turn and I start to get out the Atlas and he realized the road had been fourlaned to go into Washougal. Everyone knows the story from that point.

If Cooper went to Trout Lake he would have had to land up near Cougar.and Swift Dam (the thing with the big lights Duane told me about) Right? There was a reported siting of Cooper walking along the road withwhat the man thought was a satchel. He had on a suit with a sweater under it. Somewhere I have the man's name. This siting was early day break. The man did NOT know about the skyjacking until he returned home that evening. It was a Sunday if I remember and he was doing some work in the area on a Sunday to make some extra money. I guess the FBI did NOT even look at this.

His wife lived in the area and she told Himmelsbach about the plane - but he said the sound was the search planes. This woman like myself lived near military bases - we know the difference between a small fast plane and large passenger or cargo plane. Himmelsbach did NOT flinch!

The FBI agent who took the wife's report did NOT even take any notes. Himmelsbach said they would have taken the notes after they got back to the car so as NOT to intimidate the individual. That sounded ODD to me then and still does. The individuals interviewed all felt they were NOT heard. Remember it was far away that 4 witness in one locations reported the plane and also were dissed.

Okay ALL I have to say on this. I have told this story before, but it seemed appropriate to interject it. What Ever! Should be in bed and should have taken my meds, but wanted to get this over.

ALL of the place were marked on this small map yrs ago - so I just had to follow the marking I had made.

Thank You for your TIME!

Source of Titanium!

I have some metal that was in Duane's old bridge - I guess it is white gold, but I never had it checked. I thought it was gone, but found it when I emptied a container in the Garage (it contained the DNA items I sent to the FBI). The dentist had removed the frame work from the artificial teeth - Strange I never saw Duane without this bridge in. The new one was not as nice as the old one.

The "gold" or whatever it was -was place in a medicine bottle - by the dentist and I doubt Duane ever handled it after it was cleaned and stripped of the teeth it replace. I didn't think to ask the crematorium for the bridge he had in his mouth.

Even in the hospital I NEVER saw him with out it...it was NOT a fixed bridge.

That's what you say. Okay, that's an opinion unless you claim to speak for others as well. I'd rather discuss the Cooper case, or things related to it, but we're still getting into personalities here and sniping. Even I know this is a go-nowhere route. As the saying goes, 'Everyone got an opinion...'

I would not call my recent posts junk. I offered to help Bruce Smith do his book, prepped a major report for the Seattle FBI and Curtis Eng, showed how people here have had their names stolen with filth posted under those names, and defended my analysis on the Amboy chute and Marla Cooper. Those things are not 'ridiculous, outlandish, or unfounded,' IMHO.

Drop some of the money in Wind River... or toss it in the Columbia if you opt for following the very nice road that follows Wind River down to Carson.

Time??? how long would it take you to hike 50 miles or so... There was certainly plenty of water to be had in November and there is even food if you know how to acquire it.

Perhaps you meant Bingen, WA

It is on WA HWY 14.... it follows the river but as you go west you do indeed climb up a tad... before dropping back down and into Washougal.

It's an easy thing to find out which unit Gossett served with, you know. He should have done this a decade ago.

Good suggestion, Galen should do it if he hasnt already. The answer, however, may not be reliable.

When I was a kid my best friend's dad was in the National Guard. On some weekends we'd go with him to the armory. He'd sign in and leave immediately. He joked with us that he was a weekend warrior for a minute a month. The guys in the unit all cooperated to falsify attendance records.

There may also have been sloppy or after the fact attendance record keeping at Army bases. I dont think Gosset was DBC, but if he was he may have figured out a way to have a good alibi, such as base records showing he was present during the skyjack.

Just a thought.

The town was not on this little map - so I was recalling it from memory. SO I was close and you are right that was the little town he mentioned.

CLIMB UP A TAD. I call the hill or that tad of climb before you get to Washougal - a mountain.

Have you got any advice for Galen concerning what
color of underwear he should wear, the toothpaste
he should use, the price of asparagus in Helsinki,
or why do you think Galen Cook needs any advice
from you and Blevins?

Galen etal seem to be showing utter disregard for all
of your advice!

If you knew that Galen doesnt even read this thread
what would you post then, and to whom?

But maybe Galen Cook likes his name being kept
alive in the Dropzone Cooper Forum by his self-
appointed adversaries - some of whom dont have a
pot to piss in but are willing to keep taking out loans
so they can afford the internet bill!

People sure are strange and self deluding!

Your route strikes me as a Survivalist's route. It
places some reliance on Cooper having survival
skills, perhaps knowing the area, sticking to
survivalist principles-training ... and one direction
'they' might not search. The slow methodical stroll
out of the woods, while everyone is looking some
place else. A Cooper who out-thinks his adversaries.

Money winding up at Tina Bar out of this scenario
however, becomes a probability on par with the
lottery, in my estimation.

I wonder if anyone has ever searched the Wind
River route? Im guessing not.

But I see the attractiveness of your route. As a
tactical matter its almost like Lawrence crossing the
Nefud, to get to the backside (unwatched side) of
Acaba! Maybe Cooper was a tactician in the
Pentagon! Laugh It looks like something that
would come out of the War College. I like it. Except
for the money, it works, with a very high probability
of success! I like it a lot.
