Well sidmo, you're right. This is clearly escapism. Better than TV though.

Maybe I should jump ship about here.

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ – no, no, don’t go - say it ain’t so – just because licky bailed out is no reason to quit - Yer right about one thing, this thread beats TV, or basic cable at least – but think about helping licky – lawd knows he needs it, and you could be the stimulus to prod him on to his fifteen minutes of glory – imagine just sitting on all that data so painstakingly accumulated over these many years . . . YEARS!!!!

Help the fella out – you’re good with photos, at least you could edit them – if he’d just post his top-secret manuscript I’m sure we could tighten it up for publication – maybe he doesn’t want to share his royalties – could there be a divorce or student loan debt or some reason like that he doesn’t want to be paid for anything just yet? Maybe he’s worried about getting into a higher tax bracket or losing his obamacare subsidy but we need to get our boots up his ass or this thing will be ancient history

Ya know what cracks me up about sidmo? This is all about me telling him that one I don't need his help to write the book, and two I don't think he was there. From that point on his rant became a rage. Ya think I might have struck a cord?

There were a few “bottom feeders” in the Valley in 1977. They failed, they were too late, or they were too lazy to make it to the lake to score. But, there was still “opportunity.” Anyone here fit that category? A few were bitter over their own bad luck, laziness, or poor timing to the events.

No, I was 14. But I do remember climbers talking about it back then.

Hence my interest.

Randisi, commendable. Not you by any measure. It is an interesting story. And, there were scumbags wandering around the Valley after the events settled in 1977 and 1978 scamming everyone. That's what I mean.

Hey TMJ is it snowing there? In 87 we uncorked some airplane from a test tube in Fresno. Remember that? Tasted like the dust under my dryer.

Swirling snowflakes, but nothing else for now. As for the test-tube, I'm still coughing.

Ah licky - the more you think you have it all figured out the less you realize - what is it about a mystery that prods you into rushing your judgment and jumping to conclusions? Would it be too much for you to admit that you're stumped about certain things? Keep guessing about my motives if you must, but anything that takes your mind off your task is counterproductive at best, and self-indulgent at worst. This ain't about you licky, or me, or chainsaw or any one individual. Finish your phuckin' book before you start psychoanalyzing, butthole

What's funny is how sad licky's life must be to be afraid to publish who was bringing the drugs in. For years people have been saying the US government was bringing it in, I'm not sure there's anyone more powerful than them.

This whole thread should be nuked.

So licky's just a fraidy-cat? Scared of the guv'ment? He could publish and then move to Idaho - those nuts up there could protect him. Or is it the mob that's got licky hiding? Maybe he could go hide out in Russia with that whistleblower fella, but then the Russian mob might get him. What's a serious investigative journalist and mystery writer supposed to do? Poor licky, he's done did all this work for nothing, and they may be on to his ass already anyhoo

It was about a book, it became about a schnook . . . or two

Khoi....oh yeah, the book is in full swing. I'm just not publishing excerpts to this forum. I can see a number of wannabies on this forum using the data to put together their own version of the event. Sidmo for one...I have no faith in his ethics so I'll just do this by myself.

There is a video production company that is running parallel to me to develop a documentary along the same lines. We have been sharing data and we both have been discovering a ton of information.

Keep on keepin on. It would make the book much more interesting if you could compile a list of all the people who went up to the plane, what they did with the money, and where they are today.
It all sounds fascinating.
