Re: [RobertMBlevins] Denali [In reply to] Can't Post

When you choose to play in the realm of ice and rock you do not always win. I am too old and incapable of ever summiting any of the Cascade Strato Volcanos ever again. At least I got to challenge them when I was young and could revel in those accomplishments. I did Rainier 4 times, and will always cherish that mountain.

Denali on the other hand was a beast. Most people do not know that it is one of the highest mountains on earth for a climber. Unlike K-2 or Everest that sit on the Tibetan plateau... the actual pile of rock that is Denali is far higher in your approach and climb since you start out at a very low elevation. It is also up nearer to the Arctic Circle than any of the other 20,000'+ mountains so the weather is nothing to trifle with. I am sure you have heard of the old adage that every 1000' in elevation is equivalent to travelling 300 miles north in relation to temperature change.... Denali puts you 6000 miles north Wink

George just Chill! We all know Blevin's views of what he reads and hears are SLANTED. I like you being on this thread so don't let Blevins goad you into making inflamatory remarks.

He knows he can upset you REAL easy and WHY he does it. He would love nothing more than to get you put on vacation again!

I didn't like how Gray portrayed me. Made me sound like a country hick and also a bar pick-up. The outfit he described when I met Duane in Atlanta made me sound like a hick. I never owned a kerchief in my life even when they were in style in the 60's.

Gray forgot I had managed a HIGH END boutique for juniors and subteens in the 70's. I do not have a picture of me in that particular outfit. My dress style until I retired was alway classy and in style - never cheap looking...never low cut nor too tight. Today it is just comfortable!

The class of men I dated were usually professionals. Bankers, lawyers, airline pilots, engineers, business owners and one politician...so how the hell did I end up with Weber?

I got stupid! Stayed stupid for 17 yrs! The gal who changed the way Fl Real Estate test was one dumb broad when it came to marriage. I finally got it right the last time.

Re: [377]Putting a Suspect on the Plane! [In reply to] Can't Post

 
Everyone knows the ticket, visual ID and one of the 20's would put a suspect on the Flight Nov 24 1971, but WHAT else is there the FBI has concealed to ID the right Cooper suspect?

Correct me if I am wrong.

Did Tina not observe Cooper looking at his watch?

Was there item Cooper seemed taken by?

A knife - we know the knife had a long blade - right? Per Tosaws interview with Tina per his book.

Was there yet another item never identified that Cooper may have had or may have taken from the plane...I have suggested a book and photo, but NO one would bite enough to send pictures of them to Tina.

The match book which was in the desk drawer is long gone.

The ticket in the box is long gone.

The satchel I describe to Mr. H is long gone.

The bank bag is long gone.

Would a watch that was unique have caught the attention of Tina?

She was trained to watch for things, but was this one of them?

Cooper had a scar on his hand - Duane Weber had a scar on his hand per his criminal records and one which he showed me - unlikely the one FBI missed in notation of the scar in his criminal records or was this missed by the FBI?

Pictures have been made of 2 watches Duane had before our union and the "mouse" and the knife which has been sent to the FBI. Should the FBI not respond to these pictures - they will be made public AFTER they are sent to Tina and other members of the crew.

What else will put a Suspect on the plane Nov. 24, 1971? Add what you wish to the list, beside a confession - which is NOT tangible. Evidence has to be tangible.

Four items have been photographed and are being sent to the FBI. A response is requested in a reasonable amount of time.

Definitely not money, sex, intellectual challenges, stability or his habits. What attracted me to Weber? He could sing, but I did not know that until our wedding night.

Charm - 100%
Protective - YES
Tired of making it alone - definitely. Was that enough to up-root my daughter and myself and leave my job to move across the country to marry this man? I guess so.

Nobody's picking on you. Gray says one thing, you say something completely different.

Look, you were the one who brought the subject up with your mind-meld remark. Maybe Gray misquoted you, but where the heck would he get a detailed life-quote like that? I don't care if you were raised in the Cooper search area and discussed the case at Thanksgiving. Like that's never happened in Washington? No big deal. You want to deny once being an Evergreen State resident, okay. You have your reasons and I'm fine with that.

Just stop using my name to deny it...Crazy

On a Cooper-related note: The San Francisco Chronicle article on Cooper from 1996, as with many of the media reports on the case, has errors. Like...Cooper took the cigarette butts with him, for example. Here is the article.

But I wondering if this particular quote might be true (see underlined section):

Quote:
'By 7:45 p.m., a light on the airplane's dashboard indicated that Cooper, alone in the cabin, had lowered the rear stairwell.

But the wind kept bouncing the ramp back up, so Rataczak increased the flaps to 30 degrees, slowing the plane to under 170 miles an hour.

At 8:12 p.m., ``we felt a little bump and the air pressure changed,'' Rataczak said.

``I got on the radio to air traffic control and said, `I think our friend just took leave of us. Mark the point on your radar.'''

And that was the last fix on D.B. Cooper...'

Re: [RobertMBlevins] WHY DO U HARP [In reply to] Can't Post

Blevins everyone is TIRED of hearing you harp and harp and harp on Georger, because a writer said one thing and the man prefers to keep his PRIVACY. Like MYSELF - EVERYTHING about me IS not for the PUBLIC to know.

GRAY took LIBERATIES and that was wrong. He's a writer for Heavens Sake. NOT only Georger has been affected, but others. We do NOT always get things OUR way when he go public with our knowledge, our interests, being a victim or being someone who assists in investigations.

WHAT is so DAMN important about you being right or if Gray took liberaties. ALL Georger does is defend himself against your single minded oneness.

WE are ALL tired of IT. U have only ONE motive in continueing your actions - that is to SHUT down the thread.

WHY do you continue to HARP and NAG about Georger?
NO don't answer that JUST stop what U are doing - DO NOT respond to this post - JUST STOP what U are doing! It's green are you happy?

What the H does any of this have to do with U or Cooper for that matter - NOTHING! It is a writer making a living - live with it - Get Over It!.

Pointing out the ARTICLES in the papers is what U should be doing - NOT bashing other posters - SO PLEASE STOP doing it!

PLEASE DO NOT REPEAT THIS POST OR RESPOND TO IT. Just stop harping or complaining!

If U respond either to Georger or myself or repeat this post and your obnoxious complaints - IT will be considered an attack by all. U come across as a whimpering kid who screams and kicks and runs to MAMA when someone doesn't DO it YOUR WAY!

This is coming from the CRAZY DELUSIONAL off her ROCKER lady...conclusions Gray made about me. Maybe I should pull one of your tantrums! Well, I am pulling a tantrum NOW! I am screaming and shaking my fist at you and saying STOP STOP!FrownUnimpressedUnsureMad

Re: [skyjack71] The Chronical 1996 New Article [In reply to] Can't Post

It was May of 1996 I contacted the FBI and I did NOT go public until 2000 when the FBI pissed me off by getting simple facts about Weber incorrect.

I have not seen or read this article, but there are several errors in it. He obviously did NOT interview the witnesses other than supposedly Cossey - if you could even call him a witness.

This is what I mean by people changing their stories - is it the writer, the witness, subject or deliberate or liars forgetting what they told the 1st time?

First I had heard of Cossey claiming the chute that was unusable was left on the plane. But I thought the unusable was the front pac....so has been claimed by Cossey and others.

How many different stories have we heard from Cossey. I know what he told me and it didn't match other stories told. I won't repeat it without my notes - and I just don't do that anymore. Besides back then I didn't know a front chute from a back chute and the closest I have been to a real chute was in a museum.

Cossey is completely unreliable and we know he only packed the chutes - they belong to someone else. I interviewed that someone else yrs and yrs ago and then I wondered why Cossey said the chutes belonged to him...I thought before he only provided the front chutes - then per the thread he is claiming to have provided the "chutes".

I still don't understand this. I have my notes (I did NOT have a computer back when I contacted the other guy - pre 2000) who Himmelsbach directed me to. Then Cossey's name comes up and I contacted him after I was on the thread. I didn't know enough to understand what the difference was. Then Bruce ends up confronting these guys - I have never figured out which one is right and which one is lieing and/or why/ or is it a matter of back pacs versus front pacs.

Then this stuff comes up in the thread - one owned them and one packed them and the front pack came from someone else - NONE of this MAKES on iota of sense to me. Wish someone would show them to me and then explain who said what and what who said to who. Bruce got me even more confused, so I just stayed out of the discussion. Go back and check - I left that up to guys who supposedly know these things.

The other thing I never read and it makes me wonder if there have been lots of lies told and who told them. First I ever heard of the money being found in a waterlogged sand encrusted satchel with 294 moldy 20's.

Is this a writer taking liberaties after 11 yrs or did he know something others did not know.
Seriously doubt if the money was found in that state it would or could have been kept secret all of these yrs. After all there were children involved...not to mention several adults - do not believe that is a secret that could have been kept regarding how many individuals were involved.

Quote:
'Blevins everyone is TIRED of hearing you harp and harp and harp on Georger, because a writer said one thing and the man prefers to keep his PRIVACY...'

This is pure BS. It was GEORGER who made his insulting 'mind-meld' comment out of nowhere, saying he never lived in Washington and the other statements in Gray's book are untrue.

It's no big deal if he wants to deny living in Washington, although I don't see the motivation for doing that. If he didn't grow up in Washington and discuss the Cooper case at the Thanksgiving dinner table, then why does Geoff Gray say he did? Not that I care about where Georger lived as a kid, or what they discussed around the Thanksgiving table. Crazy However, I have had to read comment after comment from him full of insults, so when I see BS from him...yes, I'm going to call him on it. If he was interested in privacy, he could have told Gray to go to hell, or to not use his real name in the book. That is not my fault he chose to do this. But when he jumps all over me for no good reason (again) on something, and basically calls me a liar on it...I'm going to respond to that. He can say those things...but it's also MY right to call him out on it.

You understand that you can obtain every known address ever recorded by a power company or a cable company on ANYONE for a mere four bucks at US Search, right? Or I could have asked Porteous to look into it. But I would do neither of those things because I DO believe in privacy, unless that person is actually being investigated for the Cooper case, and Georger is not, of course.

My advice to Georger is to drop the subject. Gray was wrong or you were misquoted. Fine. You never grew up here, you never discussed the case over the Thanksgiving dinner table when you weren't here. Just keep my name out of any further comments regarding your early life. That's my advice.

I'll admit to a bit of sensitivity regarding Gray, because I've already caught Georger quoting him with statements about yours truly that Gray did NOT make. I was polite enough not to make Gray's emails about this public, but trust me on this...Gray denies Georger's claims vehemently and I believe him. Let's not push it any further and instead move back to the Cooper case. It is not ME who engages in personalities constantly. That would be Georger.

Responsibility for Actions [In reply to] Can't Post

Jo:

I appreciate your concern, but let me explain something about myself this one time. When someone makes what I consider unfair comments or attacks on me (or people I know) in a personal way...I respond. In other words, I am in the habit of standing up for myself.

I have had to read certain things from a certain poster. Talking about my girlfriend, what I do for a living, and other things that have zip to do with the Cooper case. I'm not the type to hide under a rock when this happens.

Taking my lumps on something regarding the Cooper case has never been a problem for me. Like the time I said Captain Scott spoke to the hijacker. Or when I had the Columbia River flowing backwards. This person came down on me pretty hard about that. And I deserved it. On the other hand, telling me to 'keep scrubbing toilets,' for example...is a bit unfair.

My life has been full of challenges. So I've never been one to back down in an unfair situation. I was lost in the Cascades for more than a month in late winter. I survived and walked out. I was washed out into the Pacific for days on a leaky raft without supplies. I made it back to shore. I faced down a charging bear with nothing more than a Belgian Browning 22 - and won. I've been trapped on Rainier twice and got out without help. I've used a pair of needle nose pliars and my own urine to repair a Subaru out in the desert after being stranded for days without supplies. (Radiator punctured, no help for many miles) I never panicked in any of those situations. To me, they were just another challenge to be faced, so I did.

This person only THINKS he knows me. And maybe that's why he says the things he does, and constantly goes to personalities instead of addressing issues in the case. I will always be polite, but I am not a pushover, either. And I have decided I have had quite enough of it. My suggestion is for this particular person to get over his personal issues regarding yours truly and move on to positive exploration of the Cooper case.

I do not think this is too much to ask.

Re: [RobertMBlevins] Responsibility for Actions [In reply to] Can't Post

 

I nor anyone if this thread CARES about what LIFE has dealt you, it is time to GROW up! All you have is EXCUSES. You can't work WITH people and have a little fun doing it. YOU just go on and on and on with a personal vendetta, just because that person CALLS it the way he sees it.

WATCH this - U will make a long post about me - WELL, don't because U will end up eating your words. I argue with people and have opinions - but U are the only one here who continuely reposts and reposts everything another poster says about U.

U cause the thread to stagnate over and over - U rarely make a progressive post...and U call yourself a Writer!

NOW on to
D.B. Cooper Stuff:

I did make some phone calls today about the News Paper Article Blevins brought to our attention and also spoke with "others" who do not participate in this thread.

Cossey changed his story more than one time thru the yrs and it caught up with him long ago. His inconsistencies had already been acknowled by the parties that count. On has to wonder WHY Carr contacted Cossey for HIS opinion and NOT the other AVAILABLE parties.

Had Carr not been all engrossed in publicity - Cossey would not have been the only opinion sought out. It was his due responsibility to speak with all individuals involved with the acquirement of the chutes still available. This was NOT done!

One of the individuals I contacted paid me a huge compliment and I am still gloating. The individual was aware of my 17 yr involvement in the case, 7 yrs in the thread and other places I have plundered. I denied being instrumental in any phase of this....just trying to tell what I knew....and looking for answers in places where others might know something or present a piece of the puzzle.

I feel pretty good about the label I bear:

Crazy, Delusional, Off her Rocker

377 - yep! I am a teaser, but it was part of the trip out of necessity. Being called a liar & harassed verbally by one individual in the thread, over the phone and publically to the point it was necessary to contact local law enforcement for advice was the difficult part.

17 yrs is a LONG time to fight the system?

Keep doing it Blevins, and it's a virtual certainty -- just a matter of time -- that you're luck is going to run out. Only DBC can live on the edge like that and let it propel him into legendary immortality. It won't work for us mortals. If I were you, I wouldn't go around bragging about all the times I risked my life so unnecessarily -- some people might think you're a couple bricks short of a full load. Tthen we won't have the joy and priviedge of enjoying your deep insights and observations re: the Cooper case -- because you'll be gone. I suppose I could do a little eulogy for ya.....

Almost EVERYTHING is avoidable if ya stay on the couch...Wink
& 'ridiculously dangerous situations'...this IS a skydiving forum right?!? SlySly

This part isn't directed at MeyerLouie...just a general rant~

Now I'm obviously not a hard-core Copper Clown but I like to keep up with the 'discussion'. Lotta interesting theories have been brought up, several knowledgeable people voice opinions that make a lot of sense...

What I don't understand is all the personal assassinations that seem to have to go hand in hand with the discussion?

I've never met Blevins but from what I see on here he seems like a reasonable guy. Works hard, plays hard, intelligent - well spoken, yet gets flack for things that have little or nothing to do with the discussion? Crazy

Same with Jo & even Koss...

Everybody is entitled to their opinion, whether ya think someone is a crackpot or a saint does it really do anyone any good to personally attack them or their family because you disagree with something they say?

It's ludicrous! Unimpressed

Sift out all the personal bullshit arguments in the thread and it's 1/4 as long...and makes for MUCH more interesting reading! Cool

Umm, not everything is avoidable by staying on the couch. I bet you know some jumpers who are paying 18 years of child support for something that got started on a couch.

I think Blevins ought to carry one of these. Too many close calls. http://m.rei.com/...locator-beacons.html

The venom against Blevins seems to come primarily (but not exclusively) from non jumpers. Why is that Airtwardo? Are we jumpers just more tolerant?
