: Carson City, Nevada jump. This was the last
: jump Evel made on the Triumph and wearing
: the Caesars Palace style leathers. When he
: recovered from a broken shoulder and hip, he

On Oct 17th 1938 a baby was born.
That baby would become a man,that man became a LEGEND.
On Nov 30th 2007 the man passed away.
