From time-to-time I dream of starting a Tour Company that jaunts through Cooper World, visiting all the hot spots like Tina Bar and the Fazio Ranch. But also all the pubs and restaurants that have a Norjak connection - like the DB Cooper tavern in Salt Lake City (McCoy Country), or DB Cooper Ale brewery in Portland. Why not put the Sky Chef resto in Toronto on the list!

I think you’re on to something here, Bruce.  I know they have a tour of the Lindbergh kidnapping sites in NY-NJ.

I am still reading the last master outlaw and one thing that I read was that Cooper was jumping up and down when he got the money. It's on page 68 and both Flo and Tina said it. One thing that it makes me wonder is if Cooper was younger than his 40's. I am not sold on Rackstraw BTW but I just wanted to see what others thought about that.

I don't recall reading in Flo or Tina's 302 FBI statements Cooler "jumping up and down." Never read the book but curious where the author got his info.

The problem I see sometimes is the authors will insert there own terminology to an event, usually exaggerating the statement to the fullest...

I recall this as well. I get the impression Flo spoke to his attitude offering them money.

But yes. As with many aspects of this case a few words or actions are open to interpretation.

that could be. I do think that it is possible that Cooper could have younger than thought regardless if he jumped up and down or was acting childish. A person in their mid 40's wouldn't be as likely to act that way.

Well, I'm 68 and you'd be surprised how excited I would be with an unexpected pile of moolah at my feet. BTW: The "child-like" behavior comment has been attributed only to Flo. I have never read or heard that Tina characterized DBC as child-like.

Not true.  Not at all.  A caper is exciting and rewarding and I'd expect any male to behave that way regardless of age.

My behavior sometimes is childish..I'm joking around all the time on jobsites..certain people mature more than others, but doesn't exclude someone 70 years old acting childish...
