I am not convinced that the CIA actually did recruit at Elsinore. Jumpers like to spin stories. Dudeman have you seen any evidence supporting that claim?

I never saw or heard anything that would indicate any active recruiting. I was acquainted with a couple of people I suspected may have worked for them, but they were veterans who were just there as active jumpers.

How about you dudeman. Would you have taken a CIA job if offered?

I'd like to think that I would not have. There would be a lot to consider. Sure, it's fun to watch the movies and fantasize about high adventure and intrigue, but how real is that? And even if it were, how much of your job would be that adventure versus more mundane stuff or just dirty pool. And would you even get a 'Bond' slot, or would you end up doing research or support stuff. And I suppose you wouldn't know that until you were in training and testing, then it would probably be too late to back out. And 'walking in the dark', would you really want to be a lie to your closest loved ones. Would you be allowed to have close loved ones. And normal military combat aside, would you really want a job description that might actually include assassinating people. How would your feelings about that change over time, under different administrations whose policies you might agree or disagree with? So yeah, it might be interesting to consider, but ultimately I would hope to have said no. But if you got the offer when you were young, eager, and naive...

Sober thoughts, Dude Man. Thanks for sharing.

Cooper Rumor Dep't

I hear that Thomas Colbert is expanding his operation, too. As we move into ETs, Bigfoot and  "high strangeness," he's taking his Cold Case Team and turning them into a Cold Case Breaking outfit.

Their focus at the moment includes Jimmy Hoffa, the Zodiac Killer, missing kids, and of course, doubling-down on DBC. He's now characterizing Rackstraw as a former contract pilot for the CIA. Reminds me a little of Walter Reca.

I'm a little surprised that TJC hasn't posted his news here. I guess he's giving up on us being a part of his investigation, such as it is.

Thoughtful reply to the CIA question Dudeman. I think we are on the same page.

I have fond memories of jumping at Elsinore in the 1970s. Taft too. I was in LA for a long criminal trial and jumped now and then for stress relief. It’s a remarkably effective remedy, at least for me.

As per my dream. A time-traveling, inter-dimensional escape. Page 369, DB Cooper and the FBI.

Good to see that folks in Hollywood are reading my book! Or at least watching my videos.

Ha, In the picture of 'Cooper' in that article, I think the ripcord handle is in the pocket backwards. The wide end of the trapezoid should be in the pocket, the narrow end out.

I agree - absolutely effective stress relief. I'm currently having fond memories of jumping at Elsinore today...
