Passing of an icon

One of my boyhood heros passed today. Evel Knievel died today. I still remember riding my bike down the street making jumps over stuff and all the kids did it. Great times and great memories. RIP

I was on the edge of my seat when he was trying to decide if he really wanted to get in that rocket for the canyon jump.

I was an Icon for sure.
