Sometimes, the search for that special someone requires a bloodhound.

About This Cartridge

As a new FBI agent, you've been assigned to the high-profile D.B. Cooper case. Cooper, you'll remember, leaped from a plane flying over the Pacific Northwest with $200,000 in cash. The trail has been cold for decades, but new evidence leads you to a small town in southern California. Your boss has given you a very simple task: find the elusive D.B. Cooper!

This cartridge will lead you to a geocache of the same name (GC19ZZ6). 

Starting Location

You've arrived at a street corner near a trail. Hmmn, which way to go?

We had great fun playing this cartridge. It's very well thought out and fairly easy to do. We never found the physical evidence at the first way point but were able to continue without problems. We'd tried this one a year or so ago but had problems with trail closures and cartridge problems. This time everything went smoothly. Thanks for a fun time.

Came out to play this on our 730 day of caching in a row. Awesome fun almost missed the final house, it's amazing how rain and mud can change things, thx to JJG for the fun, cache is in great shape.

Gimp805 and I came down from Santa Barbara to hit up the three Whereigos in this neighborhood. It was a beautiful day, and this one was very well thought out! We were already both familiar with the D.B. Cooper story, so that made it even more fun. Thanks for the great Whereigo!

I completed this one today with Trixxster and Silver Horde. It was very well done. We enjoyed finding clues and interviewing witnesses, as well as the walk to the final. Trixxie's Nuvi dumped out near the end and she couldn't complete the cartridge on her GPS, but my Oregon worked well. We did some of the tasks in the wrong order, having found the physical cache before we completed a couple of them, but it all worked out in the end. Thanks for a fun experience!

We really enjoyed chasing D.B. Cooper's trail! We didn't realize that we shouldn't have taken our dog, Chelsea, to the final until we were all the way back out and saw the sign...oops!

We tried to unlock the cartridge, but for some reason it doesn't show as complete. I don't know where we messed up, since we found all the clues and the final container. I guess we're still learning! ;)

Thanks for all the effort you put into this! We enjoyed it very much!
