DB Cooper Trail is a good idea. But most successful tour "trails" have an alcohol (and now a developing Cannabis) component. Need a string of brewpubs or something similar along the Cooper path. Kentucky's Bourbon Trail has become wildly successful.

Who knows, the right owner or investors could turn the Ariel Store into a gold mine if this Cooper Trail thing ignites. I think Blevins is right that there is little hope of reviving it under its current ownership and mgmt. In that climate and with no maintenance it won't take long for dry rot to render it beyond economic repair. 

Sure enjoyed the DB Cooper Days party there during Geoff Gray's Portland Symposium. So glad I got to experience it and meet Dona before the store shut down.

I have never studied the supposed Cooper letters, is there any evidence that any of these letters contain information that only the hijacker or the FBI could have known (i.e. "you can keep the tie") or "sorry about the mess (regarding the broken-open parachute)" or something similar?

Yes and No, Marty.

Yes, if you believe that Wolfgang Gossett was DBC. Wolfie supposed stashed the loot in a Vancouver, BC bank, according to his chullins. Hence, the Letter from Vancouver is important in that regard.

Yes, if you follow Al Di down his very large Rabbit Hole to discovered secondary and tertiary meanings, ala Petey and Vietnam references, plus the System to Beat the System ad in Playboy, etc...

No, for most everything that most folks would consider a straightforward NORJAK reference that only Coop would know.

I assume most of the socalled Cooper letters are from cranks. That is one reason why LE officials are often reluctant to acknowledge them.

Kassin, a distinguished professor of psychology at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice found that people implicate themselves in important crimes, when there is something important lacking in their own lives.  That includes vulnerable suspects or people who perceive they are of equal importance to actual suspects, teenagers and even adults who are processing fantasies, people with intellectual impairments or mental illness and a low self worth. These personality types are more likely to make false confessions, especially if they are under some pressure or seeking to prove themselves. Social media groups devoted to discussing particular crimes are likely to have these people join and post. Some even fantacize that solving a crime is important to their lives and self worth.

These people are often self-centered with a very low self esteem, vulnerable to suggestion, and looking for approval. Some of these people can be extremely aggressive - the smartest person in the room syndrome.

That's a 'no' in my book.
