The date will be Saturday, November 24th--the 47th Anniversary of the hijacking. It will run from 10AM - 5:30PM. The event will be FREE.

I'm really excited about this venue. Again, very close to PDX.  Very nice from what I can see online. I'll get a schedule posted within the next day or two.
Some men see things as they are, and ask why? I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?

Just finished having a nice chat with the Travel Channel, and yes they'll be calling back. Saturday night had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with a nice couple from Germany, the husband plans to write a fictional story on D B Cooper. There will be a D B Cooper conference held in Portland on Nov. 24, 2018, and yes I've been asked to bring memories of Mom with me.

I'll confirm to see if he is coming...for those who don't know who Bryan is....he's the son of Donna who owned the Ariel Tavern...

An AAD (automatic activation device) ensures that your reserve will be deployed if you pass through about 900 ft at high vertical speed.

They have, at times, delivered dead bodies to the ground under an open reserve canopy.

Many, but not all, DZs require them. I use an AAD.

AADs have saved thousands of skydivers who for one reason or another did not deploy their main chute and were seconds away from ground impact at terminal velocity.

Congratulations, EU and great work not letting the legend in his own mind detract from the real legend we all care about.

Alas, will be unable to attend, so please, if there is any way to watch some of it online or attend the conference virtually, let me know - I can (and will) get the day off work but the $900 plane ticket is out at the mo, spent a lot on a trip home this summer. Would love to hear the presentations and maybe meet some of you virtually, though, and am so glad these events are still happening. I don't know what it is with this case, it really does have a life of its own.

PS Have finished my fictional DBC book so am now anxiously awaiting response from a publisher who likes the first few chapters and wants to see the rest - fingers crossed!

Oh, and Mr. Andrade, will be reviewing your book this weekend on Amazon and Goodreads. I was hoping to read Gunther's book before I did that, but didn't get around to it and don't want to leave it any longer as you were sweet enough to send it. I don't think I really need to see Gunther's book to review yours, but wanted a little more detail on his contact with Clara. (BTW, I'm sure you noticed that "Clara" and "Leclair" both translate as "(the) clear" in English. I thought that was interesting so wanted to read more about Gunther's actual contact.)

 :chr2: :chr2:Have fun at the conference, y'all! So jealous!

EU, you really need to get FLYJACK into your program. He insists his claims are vital and groundbreaking to the DB Cooper case. He even says anyone who disagrees with him is "wasting time and holding up progress on the case", quote/unquote. Perhaps you could team FLYJACK and Tom Kaye together for a joint program of critical importance!
