CooperCon 2021 to Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the DB Cooper Skyjacking in Grand Style

By Bruce A. Smith

The 50th Anniversary of DB Cooper’s historic skyjacking will be celebrated November 19-21 – the weekend before Thanksgiving – in Vancouver, WA, promoter and preeminent researcher Eric Ulis announced last week. The event will be held at the Kiggins Theater, which was the site of the 2019 CooperCon, the last one held before the Covid pandemic.

CooperCon 2021 will consist of an initial social on Friday night, Nov. 19, while Saturday and Sunday will feature presentations and panel discussions from research experts, members of the crew, and retired FBI agents who worked the case. The DB Cooper hijacking occurred November 24, 1971 and commenced in Portland (Oregon) International Airport. It has never been solved, and the FBI officially closed the case in August 2016. Nevertheless, private researchers and citizens sleuths have continued the Hunt for DB Cooper.

Highlights of the conference will include an appearance by 2nd Officer Bill Rataczak, the individual actually flying the plane when DB Cooper jumped off the aft stairway, never to be seen again. Joining Mr. Rataczak will be Catherine Scott, the daughter of Captain William “Scotty” Scott, the Pilot-in-Charge of Cooper’s getaway craft, Flight 305, now-deceased. Ms. Scott will join Mr. Rataczak in helping determine the flight path and location Flight 305.

In addition, retired FBI agent Mary Jean Fryrar will discuss her investigation of Sheridan Peterson, one of the top suspects in this case.

One of the foremost researchers of Norjak, as the DB Cooper case is officially known, Tom Kaye, will have a treasure trove of information to share. Kaye has been the chief of the Citizen Sleuths, the FBI auxiliary for Norjak, since 2009, and has brought to light the titanium and rare earth minerals found on the tie Cooper left behind, along with discovering springtime diatoms on some of the ransom money recovered from Tina Bar in 1980.

The fellow who actually found the money, Brian Ingram, will be in attendance to give us a personal perspective on this critical piece of evidence, especially the state of the rubber bands upon initial discovery.

The Cooperite who shared his “Cooper Twenty” with Kaye, Mark Metzler, will be presenting his latest information on the issue of the parachutes and the survivability of the jump, which occurred at night, in a chilly November rainstorm.

Further, Marty Andrade, author of Finding DB Cooper – Chasing the Last Lead in America’s Only Unsolved Skyjacking, will be discussing his original findings of the survivability in parachute jumps by inexperienced pilots, such as the bomber crews of World War II.

Also, publisher Vern Jones will be delivering his analysis of the Cooper confession from Walter Reca. Several years ago, Jones published DB Cooper and Me, an account of Reca’s exploits by author Carl Laurin, who died earlier this year. Hopefully we will have an update from Jones on the lingering questions surrounding Reca’s appearance in the woods of Cle Elum, WA on the night of the skyjacking. If Reca was not DB Cooper, then what was he doing walking in the rain of this sleepy logging town, dressed in a dark business suit and toting a large black bundle?

Another individual bearing witness to Cooper Lore will be Marla Wynn Cooper, the niece of Lynn Doyle Cooper, who was a major suspect in Norjak for many years. Allegedly, the FBI closed the case in 2016 after they concluded the fingerprints they had collected from Uncle LD did not match those recovered from Flight 305.

Concerning the fingerprint issue, Bruce A. Smith, author of DB Cooper and the FBI, will be delivering an overview of the entire issue – how many prints were collected, what types, from where on the plane – and just as important – who collected them? The inconsistencies and mysteries surrounding this seemingly simple issue are many, and recent FBI disclosures and documents are confounding.

Other FBI agents and crew members are being invited to attend, such as Larry Carr and Tina Mucklow. Also, the Air Traffic Controller handling Flight 305 when Cooper jumped, Cliff Ammerman, is invited and expected to attend the conference.

CooperCon21 is being organized by Eric Ulis, who appeared in the 2020 History Channel documentary on Cooper, titled: “The Final Hunt for DB Cooper.” In addition, the Master of Ceremonies for CooperCon21 will be Darren Schaefer, the noted host of “The Cooper Vortex,” the premier podcast of all things Norjak.

As many of the principals involved in Norjak have passed away due to age, this event promises to be an historic, one-of-a-kind gathering and will be filmed in its entirety by documentarian Brett Eichenberger.

“CooperCon21 will be Big, Fun, and Informative,” promises Eric Ulis. For those wishing to join this momentous event in person, tickets can be obtained at CooperCon2021.com. The cost is $20 per person.

  1. Eric Ulis says:

    Thanks for the write-up Bruce.

  2. brucesmith49 says:

    And a hat tip to you, too, Eric, for putting the whole thing together.

  3. Mark says:

    Is it possible to purchase a weekend pass ahead of time? I’m going to be traveling from Indiana…

    I may have my book ready to go by then…

    Looking forward to attending.

    • Eric Ulis says:

      Tickets will be available for sale soon…hopefully this week. They’ll be available through the Kiggins Theatre website.

      • Gypsy23 says:

        Maybe Adventure Books will write and publish the biography about Eric Ulis’ success as the man who cracked the Cooper case and got elected to Congress because if it? That would be the closest Robert Blevins would get to true fame.

      • Johnnie Greene says:

        If Skipp Porteous was alive today, Eric Ulis would invite him to speak at the CC21. Skipp’s alleged co-author…….NO.
        He would not be welcomed for very obvious reasons, the least of which no one would attend CC21.

  4. Johnnie Greene says:

    Excellent, Uncle Brucie. While you folks are having the time of your lives at CC21, the search parties will continue scouring the woods for “lost” campers Blevins and his boyfriend, Greg. HUGE LOL…..

  5. Vicki Wilson says:

    This would be a fun Cooper reunion. It would be fun to see everyone.

    If the US/Canadian border is open, my brother who was born in late December 1972 in Vancouver, BC, (recently found by the way of an Ancestry DNA test) could travel down as well.

  6. Marla says:

    We are so happy that someone as upbeat and positive as Eric Ulis is putting on the CC21 this fall. It should be a blast. I’ll bet 1000 tickets will be sold and the conference will operate all weekend in double shifts. Bruce Smith, Darren, Shutter, 377, Parrot, Kermit, maybe Georger 🤞and the entire gang of Cooper good guys will be there with smiling faces and numerous surprise guests to make appearances. Unfortunately, Eric had to contend with that disgusting old grinch, Bobby Blevins, who threatens to sabotage CC21, like he did in 2019. Negativity and ugliness follows Blevins around like the plague. Little wonder that Skipp Porteous absolutely refused to meet Blevins in person. Skipp knew to avoid Blevins right up until the day Skipp passed away. Blevins is an old washed-up troublemaker with zero friends. He lies about his campouts. NO ONE has ever attended a Blevins Cooper campout. He had to photoshop pictures of campers because there are none. He’s a pathetic, lonely old man who’s purpose in life is to ruin others progress. Meanwhile, we wish Eric and Bruce and Shutter all the success as they pull off this huge event in November. 👍👍👍

    • Gypsy23 says:

      Great comment, Marla. So looking forward to the CC21, knowing that Blevins won’t be there. But, does anybody really care? Bruce’s MN and Shutter’s Cooper Forum are light years ahead of the DZ, ever since Blevins has been banned for life by Bruce and Shutter.

      • Johnnie Greene says:

        Yes, great comment by Marla. Eric, Bruce and Dave (Shutter) are the Cooper progressives. Blevins has been shut out for good. Blevin’s farcicle campouts get Greg the wacko-techie into the woods with Blevins for some pork and beans around the campfire. Into the blast makes great fire starter.🤣🤣🤣🤣

      • Gypsy23 says:

        Bruce’s comment section in the Mountain News gets 20 times the viewership of the DropZone. That was just confirmed. In other words, the very few people who actually read anything by Blevins (because he’s banned everywhere else) all go to the Mountain News for their real source of DBCooper information. I’m sure a few go to the MN for a good laugh too! 😂😂
        You have to admit, Blevins is the source of non-stop eye-rolling and gagging laughter. Not with him………at him.

      • Johnnie Greene says:

        Outstanding topical line-up, Eric. Well organized and well thought-out. Will there be a discussion on the history of “disrupters” in the Cooper case? Also, who’s been hired to do the janitorial work and general clean-up of the Kiggins if over 1000 people show up……….which I believe they will?

      • Gypsy23 says:

        Question?
        .
        Does a dress rehearsal involve someone wearing a dress? At first we thought ……it must be Greg Techie. But….since Greg is in charge……maybe it’s the other guy.
        .
        BTW,
        Three more Cooper parties are being planned in the Pacific Northwest this fall. All three in the Portland area. Huge events. More to follow…..

    • Gypsy23 says:

      We hear that Into the Blast book, written by author Skipp Porteous, is selling millions of copies. So much that Adventure Books is now getting ready to acquisition Crown Books. Of course, all of this comes from the mouth of RM Blevins………so……..well you know. I purchased a copy of Blast for 79¢ in Auburn, WA.
      The book store owner took it back and fully refunded me. He called it “Into the Trash.”
      Bruce Smith’s monumental work is the gold standard of DB Cooper books.

      • Marla says:

        Yes, Bruce’s book IS the best. Book by Skipp Porteous, not so much. At least now we know the reason Porteous changed his address so many times since 2008.

      • Johnnie Greene says:

        We asked Geoff Gray if he would attend the CC21 and he said he was going to consider it. Then we asked him if he ever thought about attending a Cooper Campout. He said, “a definite NO. Silliest thing he’s ever heard.”
        Gray doesn’t like Blevins. And he told us that Skipp Porteous didn’t like Blevins either. That would explain why Skipp refused to ever meet with Blevins. What a weird thing, for a supposed co-author not wanting to meet the other co-author.

      • Gypsy23 says:

        Blevins didn’t even attend Skipp Porteous’ funeral or memorial service.
        How’s that for friendship and co-author ship?

      • Marla says:

        What? Parrothead Vol used to scrub toilets too? LOL….. Well, his admission (see DZ comment) is somewhat comical and performed as a younger man. PHV does a service to the investigation and he asks intelligent questions ……and is a friend to MN and Bruce Smith. The other guy?, a record of jealousy and disruption, and LIES. But everyone already knows this.

      • Johnnie Greene says:

        Stick to doing what you were born to do, RMB (we all know what that is). Your opinions, which you broadcast as having some superior knowledge about NORJAK, is utterly laughable. For a guy who has allegedly written a half a book on Cooper, but has never stepped foot at Tena’s Bar, your name-dropping is as low-rank as a yardbird. Leave the heavy lifting to guys like Eric, Bruce, and Dave.
        Go waste your time in the woods somewhere, but please leave us alone. Your endless chucking and clucking has gotten the thumbs-down from screen writers and doc producers. Go find a different woodpecker hole.

      • Marla says:

        Envious Blevins at it again. Don’t worry. Eric Ulis, along with Bruce Smith and the superstar guests of CC21, will pack the Kiggins to beyond capacity. A film documentary is going to be made of it too. Blevins is a one-trick pony. He has over-recited the Ken Christian fable, hoping that if you tell the same lie over and over for 10 years, it will eventually be believed. Not true, in this case, because everyone already knows Robert Blevins is just a simpleton liar.
        .
        BTW, funny comment by Johnny Green. I guess Mr. Blevins has found other uses for woodpecker holes besides DB Cooper’s money stash. LOL.

      • Gypsy23 says:

        Woodpeckers are amusing birds. The holes that they dig out are custom fit for human idiots. After completion, the peckers fly to the next tree and watch “the idiot” think he’s pulling money from it, or, they watch “the idiot” human try and put “something” into the hole that makes him look like the lonliest man in the universe.
        The DB Cooper case has one of these well known human idiots. And he’s also well known….to the woodpeckers who live in the PNW woods.

      • Johnnie Green says:

        LOL….the making of a great side distraction documentary of how DB Cooper finally sent a known complainer over the edge…..
        “One Flew Over the Woodpecker Hole.”
        starring…..you know who!……LOL….

    • Gypsy23 says:

      We just received an inquiry from a Hollywood producer. He wants to know if they can use that phrase for a title for their new Cooper movie. Some people will go to any length to get recognized. But the recognition is NOT good. Poor guy is getting not what he asked for. Start repacking that camping gear. The woods are calling.

      • Marla says:

        What does a woodpecker do when he drills the hole clear to the other side?
        .
        answer: go the DZ and see for yourself. The old woodpecker just keeps drilling. A truly dumb bird with traumatic brain injury.

      • Johnnie Greene says:

        I always thought that the porn attacks at the DZ were coming from Blevins……who was posing as Derek. Blevins has a calculating history of posing as others so he could get onto Shutter’s site. The fool even admitted it. That’s why Shutter and Bruce banned Blevins from ever posting at their sites again. Life-time bans.

      • Johnnie Greene says:

        …..although, the lifetime ban on Blevins could be lifted if Blevins gets Alzheimers soon, or, if he gets permanently lost in the woods. Shutter and Uncle Brucie are empathetic to a few other things concerning Old Blevs, like Gayla kicking him out of their Auburn bungalow or Greg Techie finding a new guy…….LOL…

      • Marla says:

        You have no clue what was going on between me and the FBI, Mr. Blevins. So stop speculating. Why don’t you go do something constructive instead of acting like a whiney, little junior high tattle-tale. You chew up more nonsensical bandwidth and crap at the DZ than anyone else. No wonder you’ve been banned everywhere.

      • Gypsy23 says:

        More blather from Blevins at the DZ. We actually thought that he was only 4’1″ because his tail feathers counterbalance his cranium. 🤣🤣

      • Gypsy23 says:

        More lies from the crazy dufus at AB Seattle. It would actually be the highlight
        of CC21 to listen to this crazy loon give a talk. LOL…

      • Marla says:

        I’ll actually show up and do a presentation for Eric Ulis, just to see what the loon from AB looks like……if he’s man enough to show up. Besides, I like Bruce Smith and he owes me a beer……..or two.
        Marla.

    • Marla says:

      Yes. I’ve stated publicly that you have the best-researched and most comprehensive book on Cooper. Not full of factual errors and highly-fictionalized accounts, such as Robert Blevin’s trashy book. I never did appreciate any of Blevin’s comments about me either, or his cartoon characterizations. The only thing that some might consider offensive is your remark about my posterior. But it didn’t bother me. Not whatsoever.

    • Johnnie Green says:

      Interesting that Blevins keeps bringing up Geoff Gray, Skipp Porteous, and Lyle Christianson as though they were his best friends.

      1. Geoff Gray never wanted to meet Blevins and in fact he made disparaging remarks about Blevins to several people involved in the Cooper case.
      2. Skipp Porteous never wanted to meet with his alleged co-author Robert Blevins, which seems mighty strange behavior for two alleged co-authors. Blevins “skipped” Porteous’ funeral.
      3. Lyle Christianson stated on a national radio show that he “made-up” the entire story about Ken Christianson because he wanted attention and a movie.

      With friends like Geoff, Skipp, and Lyle…….why does Robert Blevins need enemies? Isn’t it easier to just invite strangers to go camping?
      LOL…….🤣

      • Gypsy23 says:

        All good points, and accurate, Johnnie. Skipp Porteous was furious the way Blevins wrote Into the Blast. No evidence presented, whatsoever. A couple of interviews with some hicks and hillbillies in WA state. Geoff Gray knew the Christianson fable was about to to be exposed by the media and the FBI. Blevins only accelerated it with poor writing, poor investigation, and a yarn nobody believes. Porteous must have wondered why he ever got tangled up with the janitor from Auburn.
        And what with these psychotic camping requests for Cooper enthusiasts. It’s sounds pretty creepy, and not something for underage kids to be attending. Lots of photo shopping by Blevins and lots of pictures of himself……by himself. Not one photo of Blevins with anyone else. Not even his boyfriend Greg.
        Anyone can be a liar. But Blevins does it like an amateur hoping if he tells the lie often enough, some suckers will believe him. So far, there have been no takers.

      • Marla says:

        Tom Colbert, who lives in LA and wrote “Last Master Outlaw,” told us a week ago that he really enjoys reading Bruce’s Mountain News and shows his producer and TV friends all of the comments. Everyone in Hollywood is laughing non-stop at Blevins. Best entertainment in the DB Cooper world. They love it and they say it’s pure comic relief. Tom plans on being in Vancouver for CC21. He’s thinking about dragging a film crew up with him for CC21. No doubt, Tom can deliver. And it will be huge! Way to go Eric, Tom, Bruce …….and the gang.

      • Gypsy23 says:

        This guy who calls himself a publisher, book editor, and web producer at some obscure business site called Adventure Books of Seattle……..telling other legitimate online publishers (Mountain News/DB Cooper Forum) to halt their online comments? LOL. Ever hear of the First Amendment and free speech, you idiot? You sound disgruntled because you have no control over the comments or postings at Bruce and Dave’s sites. You have been banned for life at those sites because of your threats, nastiness, and unwelcomed speech at these privately run sites. No one comes to your internet sites, or your campouts because no one likes you. Do you understand that?
        And hearing it on good authority, if you continue to berate and interfere with CC21 in any way, you will be faced with lawsuits against your business, and you personally. Go weep at the DZ, moron.

      • Johnnie Greene says:

        Not a very good janitor. Even worse as a publisher and author.🤥 But Blevins missed his real calling, which is writing epitaphs. He writes good ones for his Cooper party, which no one plans to attend. 🙊

      • Gypsy23 says:

        Yeah, Johnnie. But those are long-winded epitaphs. He repeats himself over and over with the same old stuff, much like an Alzheimers patient would do. Most people, like ParrotheadVol, read the first sentence and skips the remainder. For sure, Blevin’s Cooper Party is dead. Actually, it was never born. LOL.

      • Johnnie Greene says:

        Skipp Porteous, recently channeled, was asked the question: Which would you prefer to attend, Blevin’s campout or CC21?
        .
        Porteous said that since he never met Blevins in person, it would be ridiculous to want to meet him now. It would be like going backwards in the DBC case where nothing was known. Porteous chose CC21, and he’s looking forward to meeting the gang of “good guys.”

      • Marla says:

        Robert Blevins is such a drone and a boor. Bruce Smith and the Mountain News is a treasure for us DB Cooper enthusiasts. When Bruce interviewed Skipp Porteous and learned that the two guys never met, and found out the truth from Skipp as to why Skipp didnt want to meet Blevins……..that really made Blevins angry. And he’s been angry at Bruce ever since. Imagine: one author refusing to meet with the other. In Skipp’s retelling, he’d rather die than meet Blevins.

      • Gypsy23 says:

        Ditto Geoff Gray.

      • Johnnie Greene says:

        Please help us uncover the top 10 reasons why Skipp Porteous refused to meet with his co-author of Into the Blast.
        Post your answers here at the Mountain News “comments.” Top respondants will receive free tickets to the highly publicized Cooper Campout in July.

      • Marla says:

        Thanks Gypsy 23. I heard all of those facts before and they sound accurate. A co-author not wanting to meet his co-author? Sounds very fishy to me. And Geoff Gray wanting nothing to do with Blevins? This confirms that there is something wrong with Blevins and his story. The Ken Christianson fable was debunked long ago by the FBI. It’s as far-fetched as a space alien doing the hijacking. But Blevins repeats himself so often he hopes it will become true. But Blevins never offered one shred of solid, believable evidence. Just excuses and fabrications.
        .
        The reason Skipp Porteous never wanted a personal meeting is because for the same reason no one else wants to meet Blevins. It’s because of who he is. No one goes to his campouts. It’s all fiction, just like the Ken Christianson fable. Hardly anyone ever posts at the DZ anymore because they are tired of seeing it consumed by you-know-who. Blevins has complained about everything and everybody. His hatred is
        off the charts. He tried to ruin Cooper Con 2018. He tried to interfere with Shutter’s site. Brian at Ariel couldn’t stand Blevins and stated why in an email to Shutter. And I guess Skipp Porteous couldn’t stand him either.
        .
        I bet Blevins will cancel his campout because no one will show up. Yet, he will blame it all on Bruce.
        .
        And this is why Blevins has no friends.

  10. Gypsy23 says:

    Here’s mine:
    10. Lyle Christianson dreamed-up a fantasy that his brother Kenny was DBCooper, with no proof whatsoever.
    9. He paid Skipp Porteous in NYC to find him a Hollywood producer to do a fantasy screenplay about his brother.
    8. Geoff Gray wrote a magazine article about Kenny, after interviewing Flo Shafner, which was made possible by Skipp Porteous.
    7. Lyle recanted his entire fantasy about Kenny to Mike Fitzsimmons on his talk show in 2007 on to adio station KXLY.
    6. Porteous wanted to make a name for himself on the cheap so he got Robert Blevins to publish a fictitious book about DBCooper.
    5. Blevins made dozens of factual errors in the book, which was very poorly researched and provided no evidence whatsoever.
    4. Porteous thought that Blevin’s book cover looked ridiculous with a square, modern chute.
    3. Porteous abandoned his effort to solve the case because he didn’t trust Blevins.
    2. Porteous never wanted to meet Blevins after all if Blevin’s blunders.
    1. Porteous was highly embarrassed that he was associated with Blevins as a co-author, and never did meet with Blevins

    And all of this is TRUE. But Blevins, who calls his book the true story, is lying to this day and has hijacked the DZ with utter nonsense and hate. His book is the worst seller of all Cooper books, and the least believable

  11. Mark Hinrich says:

    Please excuse my apparent ignorance. I am new to all of this. I’m going to be at Cooper Con with a new book of mine. More details about it later on…

    I’ve started following all the chaos and amusement in order to try and get up to speed before I get to Portland in November. Few people around me in Indiana know much about the case. It’s hell for a serious researcher like me… thank goodness we all have Bruce. I consider his book the Bible of the case, the best book out there. I tell people that if they’re only buying one book on the case, they should buy Bruce’s book.

    Quick question… Am I correct in seeing that Blevins wanted nothing to do with his co-author? I think that says enough about Porteous right there… so does anyone take Kenny Christiansen seriously as a suspect?

  12. brucesmith49 says:

    I don’t know how Blevins and Porteous felt about each other, but it is my understanding that they never met.

    As for Kenny C, as a suspect, I don’t know too many folks who take him seriously, but some do, especially in the family. His nephew, Bruce Christiansen, came to the 2011 conference and was a true believer.

    • Marla says:

      Mr. Blevins, you are truly one very mixed-up man.

      • Johnnie Greene says:

        Mark Hinrich,
        Bruce’s book on DB Cooper is the gold standard. Highly researched and well documented. Bruce takes his readers where no one else can go.
        .

        btw, it wasn’t Blevins who didn’t talk to Porteous. It was Porteous who had nothing to do do with Blevins. Our understanding is that Porteous was a successful investigator. He just hooked-up with the wrong dude. Their book is a disaster in sales and factual content. Really bad stuff. And everyone in the Cooper world knows it.

      • Gypsy23 says:

        Over at the DZ, by Bloopins:
        “Greg and I had a meeting of the minds,”
        LOL. Was it Einstein and Sherlock? Or was it more like Pee Wee Herman and Barney Fife? I’m guessing the latter with a combined intelligence quotient hovering near 15. 🤣🤣

      • Johnnie Greene says:

        Bruce Smith doesn’t respond to stalkers like Blevins. Hey ParrotheadVol, please quit feeding the biggest troll in the Cooper case. Yeah that idiot, the guy who thinks he moderates the DZ. If you need to attend his little campout, bring your own food. He won’t bring anything to feed strangers. A warm can of beans is about all he’s good for……enough to keep tooting his bullshit on the DZ. Surprised you actually engaged him, Parrot, considering that your stature in the case is far higher than his, which is somewhere between zero and Captain Scott walking back to have a drink and a smoke with DB. Go read his book. LOL.

      • Marla says:

        ParrotHeadVol:
        But don’t purchase Blevins book. He’ll then go the DropZone and brag that he just sold 10,000 copies😂.
        The Goodwill keeps a copy or two in their “free” barrel. Still no takers. Not even for a parrot cage. Woops. Sorry OHV.

      • Mark Hinrich says:

        Bill is reconsidering…. showing up? Awesome! Any idea who the other prospects might be?

        I’m SO looking forward to this adventure.

      • Marla says:

        There will be some surprises, Mark. Cooper Con 21 will be the best ever thanks to Eric Ulis and guys like Bruce Smith and other professionals.

      • Mark Hinrich says:

        I’m eager to get there already LOL

  13. Marla says:

    There will be some surprises, Mark. Cooper Con 21 will be the best ever thanks to Eric Ulis and guys like Bruce Smith and other professionals.

    • Marla says:

      Apparently, Tom Colbert does not read or post at the DZ because he doesn’t want his professional work or his solid reputation as a film and news producer in the same internet site as Robert Blevins. That’s understandable, as Mr. Colbert is very well respected and Blevins………his reputation and professionalism is also well known, but in the opposite direction. Tom Colbert reads the Mountain News regularly and has high regard for Bruce Smith. Colbert has not ruled out an appearance at the CC21 with Eric, Bruce and yours truly. Hopefully, Blevins will be with his mother that week, so she can keep an eye on him. He requires lots of supervision in his senior years.

        Correct. Colbert thinks Blevins is a zero.
        Nothing but a load of hot air looking for anyone to pay attention to him. He said that people in LA and in the film production world regard him as an old, bumbling clown. Even the folks who filmed him 10 years ago. LOL.

    Eric Ulis is really smiling. He believes that Blevin’s spurious threats and pronounced ridicule against Bruce Smith, one of the primary speakers, will enhance the CC21 turnout. Afterall, Bruce is sort of a Cooper superstar with his Jedi-like film status from last year. Blevins is more like Don Knott’s from the old Andy Griffith Show. Funny, but dumb as a box of rocks.

      This isn’t hard to predict. Blevins will get three people to attend his party, himself, Greg, and Gaylah. Greg and Gaylah will both bail out the day before. Then, Blevins will comment at DZ that he had to postpone his camping trip because his mom got sick. Or, Blevins will photoshop some pictures of a bunch of people enjoying themselves around a campfire from a different event by different people. He’s not known as the biggest liar in the Cooper world for nuthin. LOL. Blevins outed himself a decade ago.
      Of course, he’s totally banned for life from posting anything at the Mountain News and the Cooper Forum. Smith and Dave won’t have him, ever. His ONLY access to the Cooper World is at the DZ, and that site is now regarded as the garbage dump where hucksters and outcasts hang out. It’s the dustbin of the Cooper world, and a place for Blevins to bitch and moan. A pathetic place.

    The DeadZone (DZ) is the only site that still let’s Robert Blevins post his garbage. He’s banned everywhere else, some places it’s a lifetime ban. He’s such a hateful person, full of revenge and misery. And jealousy of others. And creepy too.

    • Johnnie Greene says:

      I wonder how long it will take before Ulis realizes that Bobby Blevins is on his new DBCooper mystery FaceBook site, using a phoney name? Can Ulis just block Blevins early on and make it a triple play? 😆

    AB Books written by Blevins: Greg the Techie guy.
    Greg – Because he values his privacy, we sometimes refer to our IT advisor only by his first name, although he does allow us to use his full name in the copyright pages of AB books.
    So…if you MUST know, just buy the right book.
    Greg Page works in program development and testing at Microsoft headquarters in Redmond, Washington and is one heck of a nice guy.

    Greg Page (LinkedIn)
    Quality Assurance Software Development Engineer in Test (SDET) at City of Seattle (SCL / SPU)
    Greater Seattle Area

    So call Greg up and ask him if he and Blevins are associates or even friends at AB Books?

      Bruce:
      ALERT!
      Robert Blevins just breached your website by filing this comment under “Mechanic.”
      Please remove immediately. Mr. Blevins is a liar and not to be trusted by anyone. I doubt the Mountain News or anyone involved in the Cooper case cares in the least who “Greg the Techie Page is or whether he’s a friend of Mr. Blevins. Mr. Page needs to find better friends.

      • Marla says:

        How do we know? We used Greg’s own logic. The syntax and style is Blevins. With 12 years of his garbage, a 5th grader would recognize it.

      • Marla says:

        One thing we know for sure, CC21 is going to be HUGE. Eric Ulis is highly organized and Bruce Smith (now a movie star in his own right) are promoting this event in all the right places. Even Robert Blevins promotes
        CC21, just by saying he won’t be attending. That’s the best promotion yet!
        LOL.🤣
