This is Robert M. Blevins at Adventure Books of Seattle, the author of this blog on the D.B. Cooper case. First, I want to thank everyone who has visited this site, which is literally in the hundreds of thousands since it first began. Your support, your links to some of my articles on the case are greatly appreciated.
But after 57 articles, and 12 years involved in the Cooper case, it is time for me to move on. I learned a lot along the way. I learned there is much negativity in D.B. Cooperland, but also people who are sincere and don’t spend the majority of their time in Cooperland attacking others.
It is unfortunate the negative aspects of Cooperland sometimes outweigh the positives, although I have hope that will change eventually. I had to separate myself from the negative energy. Life is too short to waste on bullshit, as they say.
During my 12 years in this world, I did countless interviews, a couple of TV shows, (Brad Meltzer’s Decoded and Adrenaline Hunter with Bethy Rossos) and wrote a book on a suspect in the case. I made over 9,000 posts to date at the most famous website on Cooper, the DB Cooper thread at Dropzone.com, under their History and Skydiving Trivia section. Over four million people have viewed my content at Quora dot com, much of it regarding the case, with a few folks checking out my crazy YouTube channel.
I also organized a few ‘Cooper Campouts‘ in the Pacific Northwest and had a lot of fun celebrating the case with like-minded people.
But in the end…I decided enough was enough. The negatives outweighed the positives, and it was time for me to move on to something else.
The only chance I would ever post here again is if someone finally solves the case 100%, no holds barred, no-way-to-dispute-it, with overwhelming and confirmed evidence. I would love that.
But as the witnesses die off, and the evidence pool shrinks, I have serious doubts the Cooper case will ever be solved. I could be wrong, but that’s my best guess.
I thank those of you who participated, commented, or emailed me about any of the articles, and feel free to contact me directly if you wish. I still answer questions on the case by email. And I thank you for continuing to buy our books, whether you are checking us out at Amazon, or a book jobber or wholesaler in the book biz using the Ingram database.
