Move on to bigger better more recent busts? Those busts dont have dirt bag old climbers fishing for fuel soaked pot in a large us park. Yucatan? Dime a dozen. Keep it going Lickey. I would like to hear a good story.

It’s been amusing to read the posts of those you weren’t party to the plane crash bemoan this book and demand with anger its immediate publishing. Of course they want to read it; it is a fantastic story with accouterments of lure and legend for the ages. Those who went there or were part of the real story seem content. Over time, this thread becomes most of the story, all right. Like any such tale based on truth, those who learn of it lacking first-hand knowledge want to know more and remain unsatisfied no matter what. Take your time, Licky.

Thanks TM for the kind words. As the research moves forward I am still finding a number of stories that no one has heard. Isn't that what this event is all about? If you know all...then the story ends.

the end of another year on the ol' thread trail, and still more teaser innuendoes of fantastically interesting stories to be revealed later are all we get for Xmas from Santalicky - we've passed the 1900 mark and are now into the twentieth century of licky's madness - more stories, huh licky? so what? nobody will ever read 'em, and nobody cares no more - an earlier post from someone suggested sneak-previewing a chapter or two - licky'd have to be writing a book to do that, and clearly that's not the mission here - what the purpose of this ridiculous thread is we'll never know, but it ain't about no book - happy holidaze threadsters, if you feel emboldened light a fire under licky's ass and get him to prove me wrong - that would undoubtedly thrill some of you morons - oh shucks, i'm not alienating any of you fine upstanding citizens am I? and I wanted everyone to like me

If someone is intent on publishing, they should absolutely NOT post anything more than the slightest excerpt online.Post a chapter?

Hot Damn - first post of 2014. It's probably in here somewhere already, but I think I've developed epiretinal membrane/macular pucker from staring at all this sheeit.

The Jesuitical Bachar, when asked why he didn’t try for a bigger haul, said he knew when enough was enough: “I felt lucky to get in and out once. Everyone gets busted when they get greedy.”

Don't get greedy.
Know when enough is enough.
Keep a good head and always carry a light bulb.

If you get busted, call:




Addendum:

Sorry Reilly, Ms. Earhart was quite familiar with the seaplane and would never have indulged in such folly. That is to say, landing in a lake without benefit of pontoons.

This seems to only cover two choices. Are there others?Let me be the first to volunteer to finish and publish the book if Ric perishes before it is done.I will of course be represented by the Arellano-Felix lawyer of choice (lives right across the bay, we used to cliff jump together).867-5309
Oh, you don't know me, but you make me so happy

Gillsburg, Tenerife, Lower Merced Pass Lake.

Something's happening here - No?

Reports are that various thrillseekers and memorabilia hunters scoured the site for guitar picks.

Did the plane come close to going down in the Mississippi River? Was the water freezing?






It's get murkier & murkier, or clearer & clearer, depending on how you view it.

On the 27th of March, 1977, a KLM passenger plane was taxiing along the runway at the Tenerife airport in the Canary Islands of Spain, and it collided with a Pan Am jet. It was said that the pilots of the KLM plane were confused over departure instructions, and they took to the runway without permission. A total of 583 people were killed in the crash.

No marijuana was recovered. [removed - out of kindness I suppose].






Draw your own conclusions. Where was the mouse of merced during all these happenings?

Zman, you're often quite funny but I think it is, at the least , bad form to imply the Tenerife tragedy was in any way influenced by the evil weed. It was simply poor communications on
both the controllers' and pilots' part.

Reilly -

I defer to your greater knowledge of aviation history and have withdrawn any comments besmirching the reputations of the pilots.

My god...

We are less than a year and a half from the 10 year anniversary of the first post.

Yosemite Gold is due to come out this year. I think you should do every thing you can to have your book available within a month of Yosemite Gold's release.

Most everybody knew who Amelia Earhart was, nobody knows where she was (is?).
