    Default D.B.Cooper legend

    Anyone ever hear of D.B.Cooper?
    He has been a legend since 1971 when he jumped from a hijacked airplane flying from Seattle to Portland with $200k. He was never seen again but the legend lives on. A couple of weeks ago a guy driving a road grader unearthed a buried parachute that is now believed to be from the famous hijacker and it is being investigated by the FBI. It was about 7 miles from the store where I work in a town called Amboy. Here is a local newscast done in our parking lot and in fact my Wife's 2001 Red Suburban is in the background. Just yesterday I was trying to explain to my 11 year-old who D.B. was and show her his story on the internet and come to find out today she tells me that a freind of hers in her class is a girl that found the chute on her property that her Dad was building a road on.

    That's awesome. That red suburban needs a GMTC club decal.

    A few years back they though they found some of the money on the banks of one of your local rivers, they were never positive because the money was in such bad condition they couldnt match serial #'s, they only copied about 50 of the serial #'s from the bills they gave to D.B.

    Yeah, but how often do you find $5,000 on the banks of a river in Southwest Washington state?
