I think it notable that I have yet to hear of anyone advocating a study whereby they throw packets of $20s--or even $1s--into the Columbia River to prove that these packets can travel to Tena Bar--or any bar--and self-bury 50 feet from the water's edge.

Why is this?

Truth be told, no one can afford it. A person could throw packets into the Columbia for 1000 years and never once have a single packet--let alone three individual packets--neatly self-bury on Tena Bar, 50 feet from the water's edge, only to go unnoticed for over 8 years.

The Columbia River delivery theory is DOA. If anyone disagrees, may I suggest they prove it by throwing packets of bills into the Columbia.

I believe that Tom Kaye did some tests using actual bills (presumably $1.00 bills!) that were bundled with a rubber band in the middle of the pack.  As I remember it, Tom says that the ends of the bundles flared soon after being submerged and the bundles then sank to the bottom and stayed there.

I did the same test a couple days ago. it's the water soaking into the bills causing them to be weighed down. the center is tighter and takes longer for the water to soak into the bills..if you agitate the water the bills sink quicker...

"...crumbled to the touch."

That's the term I hear most often referring to the rubber bands. So my questions are these:
1) If the bands were "intact," does this mean they were completely encircling the packets/bundles, or were they cracked and broken in spots but still stuck to the packets?
2) When Tom Says, "they don't last more that six months" in the wild, what does "last" mean? Does this mean they will simply POP off of a bundle of bills, all the tension letting loose at once, or does this mean they lose their elasticity and loosen? Do they disintegrate and disappear? ...Something else, perhaps?
3) Has anybody done an outdoors rubber band test over the course of a year (or a decade) to try to recreate the conditions for the bundles/bands?

I created a page on my website that features a few pictures I snapped of a properly-sized bank bag with ransom next to a properly-sized reserve parachute. I believe the images are enlightening.

Good visual representation of the bag, and having it next to a chute is good too.  I had not grasped the size of the bag until now.  Interesting thought about why he jumped with the reserve chute (it was due to the money and not actually planned for use).

Other ideas if people are bored would be to photograph or draw what the briefcase looked like open and closed (Shutter may have already done this when he was building the bomb), and a shot of the other bag he brought on board.

I've always found the green/yellow paper/canvas bag DBC brought aboard interesting. Moreover, why did it go unnoticed until he walked out of the restroom? What purpose did it serve? Very odd.

Funny stuff - a lot of play yesterday on Canadian media of Canadian liquor sales soaring.
