By 1934, Jock became the aviator of archaeologist Indiana Jones though they frequently butted heads due to Jock bringing his pet boa-constrictor Reggie with him as Jones had a pathological fear of snakes. In 1936, Jones and Lindsey travelled to Peru in search of the Chachapoyan Fertility Idol with some assistance from a man named Diego. This mission was however sabotaged by rival archaeologist René Belloq who manipulated the local Hovitos tribe into attacking the pair while he made off with the idol.

When he and Doctor Jones were searching for the fabled Fountain of Youth in central Florida in 1938, the two crash-landed in the town of Disney Springs. Jock was attracted by the nature of springs and town and in 1948, Jock built an airplane hangar in the town to settle down as his snake Reggie enjoyed the Floridian ecosystem. At some point in time, Jock was brought into the membership of the Society of Explorers and Adventurers and also befriended their splinter-faction The Adventurers Club. This hangar became Jock's new headquarters and was decorated with objects and trophies from his many adventures.

In 1955, Jock turned the hangar into a bar which he opened to the populace of Disney Springs. Due to his secrecy and adventuring, Jock was considered to be a considerably mysterious figure to the townsfolk. He would continue using his plane the OB-3PO as his main form of transport but also got a steamboat known as, "The Reggie".
